Thanks to sinterklaas. Pours a red dark orange beer with a not very long lasting white head. Smells sweet, fruity and alcohol. Tastes licorice, malts, bit alcohol and some sweet fruites. Low carbo, medium body and a sticky texture.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dark amber colored beer, with little to no white head. In the nose there is malty caramel, alcohol, strawberries and brown sugar, so overall very sweet. It is a full bodied beer, with a very light fine carbonation. In the taste the sweet of the brown sugar and alcohol. More in the distance there is malt, a bitter touch and overtime fruits, bananas, strawberries and the stinging of the alcohol. The aftertaste is not very long, but is mostly alcohol, after that the malts are left behind. A very full barley wine with a lot of sugar and alcohol. Not bad, but to much booze.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Colour: brown, copper with a thin beige head.
Nose: dark fruits and spices, like a fine port wine. Raisins, plums, roasted chocolate, licorice. Vanilla/oak notes.
Flavours: bitter chocolate, wine-like fruitiness, hints of alcoholic strength. Again notes of aged port wine.
Finish: strong, high alcoholic strength finally shows. Dark fruits and hints of smokiness and vanilla.
Verdict: very fine barley wine. "Too bad" you donít really notice the alcohol until itís too late...

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great looking, reddish copper color, absolutely opaque, with a small off-white head that leaves a permanent and steady lace. Massive malty aromas, combining fruity notes (orange peel, apricots, peaches, prunes and grapes) with other ones from the malt (biscuit, bread, some kind of cake). Complex, plentiful aroma. In mouth, it reveals notes to sweet fruits, honey, caramel, syrup...balanced as it developes with hoppy notes to citrics, specially orange peel and maybe grapefruit. The overall is full bodied, tremendously malty, almost cloying, but perfectly balanced. An excellent barley wine: thank you, Menno, you did it again!!
