(750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clear medium amber, no bubbles. Nose of honey, hops, and brown sugar. Taste is very bitter, uncarbonarted, too many esters for me.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle, 33cl, #48/1248) Hazy, ruby brown colour with a beige and short foamy head. Caramel-malty and slightly bready aroma with a vinous-fruity, almost Sherry-like note. Sweet-bitter flavour, almost full bodied with a smooth carbonation. Hearty (cara-)malt character with notes of bread, liquorice and a well-attenuated slightly fruity and resiny hoppy touch; sweet-bitter malt-accened finish with a vinous touch and a well-masked alcohol. Very good. 12.X.11

Bottle #48: Amber to deep amber coloured, small and stable tanned head, dry caramelly and (port-)vinous nose, a good dash of aromatic hops underneath; medium to full bodied, pretty soft, solid bitter-sweet flavour; perfectly balanced caramelly and hoppy finish, dry hoppy aftertaste. Fine brew...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from 2009. No head. Dark red.-amber colour. Powefull malty and fruity aroma. Rasin and plumb dominating. No fresh hops left. Light sweet powerfull bitter flavor. Vinius. Batley wine like. Long heavy bitter finish. Creamy palate. Too flat. Maybe I waited too long.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
another from gene 11/1/10. batch 146/324 brewed 29,dec 2008.
it pours out a thick murky coppery brown.
it smells murky as well... sweaty hops, wood, caramel, dried fruit/raisins, grain and lots of alcohol.
the flavor is the same only sweet without a balance. at the edge of cloying and no longer fun... 6/4/5/3

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, tfs Vaiz! Aroma is huge sugary caramel goodness.
Flavour is sugary malt goddness. Fruity malt, touch of spice, some liquorice. No more double IPA, but the barleywine that’s left is very nice.
