4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rating #1047 - April 1, 2014 - #nofoolin #beerguychrisgeekbeer #week11 for 2014.. Aroma is brown sugar, wild honey, oak, vanilla. Pours a rich golden amber, barely there white head. Medium carbonation, heavy alcohol warmth. Not unbalanced though - the bourbon oaky vanilla sweetness tempered with bold hop notes. Tempered and smooth. Exquisite.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a little hazy amber with tiny ecru head that disappears very quickly and leaves no lacing. Aroma is coconut, sweet cream, vanilla and fresh wood. Taste is a mix of caramel with nuts and some sweet fruits. Finish is a hint of dryness with ’woody’ mouthfeel and a little alcohol. Very nice stuff, feels like good bourbon with less than normal alcohol. Low carbonation. Recommended for those who prefer sweet barley wines more than dry and hoppy ones.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours HAzy Amber with a White head that quickly fades to nothing. Quite unusual and enticing aroma. A bit of vanilla and some sweet Manzanilla. Bags of sweet caramel in the flavour with the tiniest whisper of vinegar. Didn’t enhance things. Finishes very dry. It’s a woody beast with too much going on. Didn’t really come together for me.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2014 Pours very clear dark brown. Thin white head. Nose is sweet peach, raisins and caramel. Taste surprisingly tangy and sour! Like a white citrus wine. Strange but interesting. Medium body

Bottle, Beer Moth, Manchester. Dark amber pour with a small white head. Nose revealed notes of caramel malts, fruits and wood. Some barrel character present in the sweet flavour. alongside some vanilla and booze. Dried out somewhat towqrds the finish. Not my favourite De Molen offering but its an above average barley wine.

Bottle shared at chriso’s. Pours clear, bright gold with a frothy white head. Some lightly stinging alcohol in the nose, ripe citrus, pine needles. Medium sweet flavor with some infection tang, tart citrus, mild bready sugars. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Tangy citric finish with elements of orange, lemon, some wood. Not bad overall, if a bit atypical.
