Very fruity aroma, but i can sense some hop in there :) nice amber colour, offwhite foam. Very "round" taste, mild. The taste lasted very long.

Body is reddish brown, no head at all. Very sweet aroma. Syrup, sweets and bubblegum. Nice soft mouthfeel, only a little bit of carbonation. Taste starts as sweet like syrup, then you get a hit of bitterness with the aftertaste. This one’s a really nice barley wine. Easy to drink, interesting taste, very good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2oz bottle, purchased from Party Source a while back. Shared with b3shine. Bottled on 07/02/2012. Clear orange amber color. Last pour is pretty hazy. Thin off-white head. Dots and ropes of lace. Dried orange, tangerine, apricot in the nose. Candy sugar. Moderate to bigger sweet, light bitter. Good hoppy aromatics. Less of an alcohol burn than expected, less cloying sweet than expected. Some white grape desert wine type notes, yeah. Smooth, kind of creamy texture. A little more cloying sweet and biting in the final, yeasty pour, but still impressive in how well that this hides the alcohol overall, and a good bright surprisingly citrusy flavor.

Bottle to snifter (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks good; a mostly transparent burnt orange with thin white lacing and soft carbonation. Smells candied with notes of orange and apricot. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Good beer; not sure I’d classify it as a Barleywine though (although I’m not sure what I’d classify it as; maybe a Wheat Wine?).

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours hazy ruby & copper brown with airy beige head. Sweet aroma of caramel, malt, fruit, and, above all, alcohol. Sweetish flavour of malt and caramel, with sourish, vinous fruity notes, and bitter touches of booze. Mild aftertaste with sourish hints. Heady. Like bombs and grenades pouring over my head. Still, a really good Barley Wine.

Bruine kleur, amper schuim. Ruikt naar rogge, een beetje zoet, apart en lekker. Smaakt fantastisch, beetje zoet, beetje zuur en bitter. Superbier, tikkie lomp.
