3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet and complex. Great with cookies. Strong fruit and brown sugar aspects. I think mine MIGHT be a little oxidized 7 months after it’s ’best after’ date.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Originally sampled on 7/19/2014. 2014 Reserve-Pours a hazy reddish brown color. The thick head leaves a decent lacing. The aroma is of wood, caramel and toffee, brown sugar soaked hops, and hints of wine. Flavor has lots off toffee maltiness and hops mixed with some dark/tart fruits in the taste. Wood and vanilla on the finish. Moderately warming, and full bodied. Excellent beer overall, although a kinda hoppy for an english barleywine, but for me thats o.k.

2014 bottle. Ruby brown pour. Aroma is tangy caramel, mild oak. Taste is burnt caramel, mild vinous quality, mild bitterness. Ouch thin and watery. Didn’t totally come together for me much like The Abyss.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampler at the Portland brewpub. Pours deep amber with an off-white head. Aroma of caramel and toffee malts, some bitterness, light candy sweetness, and some dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average to smoother texture. A solid barley wine.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2014; 22oz in balloon. Muddy appearance with little fine foam. Dried apricots and banana chips in the prodigious nose. Plummy sweetness succumbs to waves of taut bitterness, achieving a satisfying harmony. Scant dustiness in the finish contributes to the impression of dryness despite the fruit flavors.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma of malts, sweetness, oak and molasses. Dark caramel color that appears thick. Minimal head. Great fluid and smooth palate with a slight bite at the end. Malty sweet flavors with an oaky sweetness and a slight fruit tartness. Some hop bitterness is present. Very well blended.
