500 ml bottle. Pale golden brown body with a white head. Very nice aroma of fruit, hops and some malt. Flavor is malt and dark fruit with too much raw alcohol to be pleasant. Not in balance.

Bottle. Dark amber looks like dark apple juice. Aroma is a bit wine-like with notes of fermented fruit. First sip says Maibock. A bit dusty. Body is still. Spice starts to show up on the third or fourth sip but does not build very high; some lighnt hops, finishing pepper and hints of dark spice dot the palate and strong tangerine. Although there is some citrus emerging in the bottom half of the bottle. Short aftertaste makes you forget you are dinking it but each sip reawakens the palate. Subtle.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle pours a golden orangeish color with a small white head which leaves very few spots of lacing behind. Aroma is earthy and nutty with a hint of fruit and alcohol. Taste is malty sweet with a hint of nuttiness and earthiness and traces of alcohol and hops in the finish. An ok barley wine, but a little lighter on the alcohol than I am used to in this style.

Brown cloudy looking beer, with a very sweet alcohol aroma. The flavour is malty with a slight liquorice aftertaste. A good beer, better than most barley wines.

Bottle 50 cl, Westholme Stores, shared with Mats. Pours clear amber with a great off white head leaving a good lacing. Aroma is malty sweet madeira raisins and fruity. Flavor a bit dissapointing; weak not much BW character but yet a bit. OK bitterness even in finish.

Keg at Birmingham Beer Bash. I am growing to love Barley Wines more and more. This is quite a sweet one, with plenty of sticky malt. Inching towards sickliness, but remains drinkable. It’s big.

A really surprise from Durham, maybe the best I have had from them, Not squasy and very strong, Myabe that is the reason why. But it was also dark.
