500ml bottle. Pours small white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, with biscuit also present. Complex. Colour copper. Taste is dark fruit, plums with some mildly sweet vanilla in there too. Not particularly malty but pronounced hoppy notes in the bitter finish. Enjoyed this one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle @ Sergio’s / Louisville KY --- Hazy very dark amber color, thin beige head cover, streaks and globs of lace. Aroma of malt and candied fruit. Taste is malt and fruit cake fruit that shows a strong alcohol overtone on the swallow (which is odd considering the low abv), becoming slightly more bitter, then showing malt again in a short finish. Drinkable, but not attractive to me.

Yes, there is some barley wine here. 6 3 6 3 12 ### Bottle. Deep amber to copper body. Thin white head that doesn’t last long. Nose is juicy malt of good quality and ref fruit predominantly. Undercurrents are lots of white sherbet and a hint of lemon. Nuts and biscuits towards the finish. Sweet. Crisp dry finish on the palate. Like a Yorkshire version of Fuller’s ESB, although not as good. Tasted fresh. 7 3 6 3 13
