Rating #592, bottle from Barley Wine
Easily opaque brown-red beer with a green hue. Ok head. Aroma has malts, loads of hops, caramel, alcohol, berries. Or as one of my friends called it: Beer sirup. Flavor of malts, liquorice, blackcurrant, raspberries, raisins, menthol, sweetness, alcohol and a medium bitter finish. Medium thickness, nicely soft. Good!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a nice dark amber color with an off white head. Aroma is really nice and malty, lots caramel, toffee, sweet malts, brown sugar, some hop bitterness still left, though I think this is an older bottle, marmalade and more traditional English fruit flavors. The flavor follows the nose, I get lots of the caramel and toffee, the sweet malt, brown sugar, dark fruits, some hop bitterness, marmalade, fruit cake and the traditional English fruit flavors. The body is medium to full with a silky mouth feel. Overall a great Barley Wine, I would love to see this barrel aged!

Pours a very cloudy copper/orange colour and a solid dirty white head that lasts and leaves good lace up the glass. Aromas of sweet malt, sweet dried fruits, perfumy, toffee and overall quite fruity. Flavour is sweet fruits, sweet malts, mild bitterness, light toffee, slightly nutty and a warming alcohol character.
