Dark amber colour, small white head. Aroma of citrus hops (orange, lemon), caramel, hay, apple and champagne yeast. Taste is very sweet but the sweetness calmes down after a few sips. Kinda bitter and vinous, almost a little bit tart.

330ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut
Cherry slice - cakey, almondy. Massively full malty taste. Delicious and chewy. Lovely and bocky, doppelbocky, Hops present, nicely bitter, but subtle. Too good to rate, just want to sip. For a malt-fan, this is magic. Have one in my cellar - looking forward to that.

Bottled in Craft Republic. Amber red colour. Very intensive malty aroma of dried fruits and raisn. Sweet rich malty start very similar to aroma, very full body, alcohol is hidden good enough, growing noble hop bitterness in finish and aftertaste. Balance is close to perfect. Good english style barleywine.

A weird smell of tenderized meat. Very strong but not bitter at all: like a good porto. Lovely reddish color. Not my kind of beer but a very good representant of the barley wine category.
