The taste is dominated with raisins. A little honey or syrup in the background. Good balance between the bitterness and sweetnes. No simple. Would have appreciated more complexity.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16-MAR-2013, bottle @home, shared with Morten, from Fish & Beer.
Hazy dark amber with lasting tan head.
Malt, alcohol, hops, nuts, caramel, bitter aroma.
Taste is sweet malt, caramel, bread, nuts, fruit. On the hoppy side for a barley wine. High carbonation and hops makes it fresher than most barley wines. Fine drink.
