12 oz. bottle from The Hop Yard, Raleigh. Brownish-orange pour with an off-white head. Aroma of biscuity malts, caramel, and light citrus. Taste is much more hop forward than anticipated with tangerine and pine upfront followed by an assertive malt backbone of brown sugar and toffee. Moderate alcohol warming. A great barleywine.

Pours dark amber/ brown, clear colour, with off- white unstable creamy head.
Aroma without note of an alcohol, with fruity notes of dark (plums) and medditerreanean fruits (oranges, lemon, peaches), vanilla etc.
Flavor: alcohol is mild-medium noticable, with sweet, malt/ fruity notes (prevails notes of plums, vanillla, barley, caramel, hints of candy), and spicy/ bitter finish ( esters of oranges and lemon).
Malt sweetness is high, hop bitterness also, body is soft and mouth-coating, carbonation is low.
Interesting barley wine, with totally different character like De Molen Groot&Sterk.
