UPDATED: FEB 4, 2015 Double whammy! This followed the FW Stickee Monkee. Alcohol burn apparent, but not overpowering. Pure barley essence, aroma and taste. A real gem.2014 and 2015 versions rated.

Chocolate, coffee, alcohol, smoke, woody, earthy, resin found a beer to be very strong but palatable who love the aroma the chocolate notes that I took him to the upon or very divine but the flavor of the nuttiness due to the tobacco within the product give it I’m more of an alcohol tone to it so was I in your mouth the feel of it was sort of like whiskey after all it is

2011 bottling - Pours bronze with a reddish hue and a small beige head. The aroma has toffee, oak, English earthiness, sweet maltiness, candy aspects, caramel, dark fruits, alcohol, chocolate and some vanilla. It has a full thick rich body with a bit of a bit and only a little bit of semi-sharp carbonation remaining. The flavor begins with caramel, lots of charred wood/oak, vanilla, raisins, dates, alcohol, coconut, toasted malt and earthy British yeastiness. The finish has some toffee, bread and sweet malt added to the mix. Coconut aspect increases as it warms. Very nice barleywine.

Bottle to snifter. Pours a deep brown with a red tint. Minimal head that faded quickly. Aroma of bourbon, oak, dark chocolate, dark cherries, and some vanilla. Taste was a little sweet, but not in a bad way. Reminded me of chocolate covered cherries dipped in a nice bourbon. This is a sipper and you can feel the 13% creep up on you. Very tasty.

@Basunen: tycker att doften är ganska lite för diskret. Smaken är ok men tydlig malt, torkat frukt, alkohol, lite vinös och en tydlig eftersmak.
