Bottle. Brown colour, hazy, small white head. Aroma is lots of red fruit (strawberry, raspberry), fig, herbal hops on finish. Alcohol is warming, but does not disturb. Sorry, I don’t feel any pine or grapefruit. Quite strong bitterness. Full body, but not heavy, soft carbonation. Very good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Small cream head over hazy foxy brown beer. New World hops with orange/mandarine/grapefruit aromas. Bit cheesy too. Sweet-smelling caramel, cakebottom, maltsyrup. Bitter-sweetish flavours. Again wafflesyrup, oranges, mandarines, citruspeel. Pineapple too, if less sweet - sweetness hardly increasing warming up, BTW. Medium bodied only, well-carbonated. Hopoils forming the textures. Good Barley Wine, no doubt, but the MF is a bit lacking.

Shared 12 oz. bottle. Medium amber with light beige head. Sweet malty aroma, along with alcohol, caramel and toffee. Fairly boozy, and a bit too sweet. Not getting much from the hops.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: piney and hoppy like an IPA; Appearance: amber with fluffy head that dissipates quickly; Taste: interesting blend of hops with malty sweetness with fairly strong alcohol taste; Palate: medium-heavy body; short, bitter finish; Overall: was apprehensive of a barley wine but really is like a stronger version of a normal beer; very enjoyable; would buy again.
