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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Full bodies mid amber with fluffy beige head. Malt led, very sweet but not cloying, no sign of the booze, drinks more like a 6%er.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber colour, white, quickly deminishing head leaving no lacing. Aroma of malt, caramel, peach, nuts and perfume. Flavour is sweet malty, light hops, citrus peel, honey, caramel, fudge and brown sugar. Quite slick, light cloying sweetness, quite like honey. Finish caramel and citrus peel. Not bad, but expected a bit more.
