3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2012.08.07 - on tap at Always Ron's. Pours a ruby copper with thin white head. Aroma very nondescript to my nose. Taste is fleeting, off the taste buds as fast as it was on. Mouthfeel very smooth, almost "flat", little carbonation. For a barley wine, this is very smooth and hides the alcohol well.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 330ml, pours dark amber to red with ivory colored head that lasts quite long for a barley wine. Aroma is complex and very floral with tropical fruits, hay, raisins, honey and after warming up with a lot of red fruits, caramel, brown sugar, and a hint of alcohol. The beer is full bodied and the taste is quite complex but on the other hand the balance is disturbed and it feel like it would have layers. The tastes aren’t combined but follow each other in waves. First you get a strong blow of sweetness, delicate sourness, followed by medium bitterness that remains for a very long time. Finish is extremly long and extremly bitter, what disturbs the in general good impression of the beer.

Tap. Pours dark amber, slight murky, with one finger beige head. Aroma is sweet toffee. Loads of dried fruits, raisins, figs, some honey, toasty malts, caramel, burnt sugar. Some interesting tobacco in there and boozy port notes. Taste is al the same, sweet, toffee, caramel, toasty malt, dried fruits, port. Bit sugary body, low carbonation and port. Dry toasty boozy alcohol in finish, bit too present. Could use some aging i think, something interesting going on.

Ótima cerveja. Bom aroma adocicado. Não é perceptível os 10% de teor alcoolico. Leve amargor. Predomina o doce. Se tivesse maior drinkability, seria perfeita.

Nose says - youll get a hop bomb with some caramel malty boost.. taste says - here you go. Only I would like bit more malty backup otherwise.. its awesome. After some time it becomes more balanced - no need to change anything.
Intense fruitiness, citrus grapefruit, peach, grapefruit, resin, caramel. Moderate sweetish with bitterness and bittersweet finish. Most interesting that theres 3 parts of taste - straightforward sweet, straightforward bitter and mixed up bittersweet ONLY in finish. Very likeable brew!
