4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Firestone Walker Barrelworks. A lightly hazy dark brown beer with a dense beige head. The aroma is just beautiful, with dried fruits, mostly raisins and figs, a spiced hint and some alcohol and vanilla. There’s a bit too much alcohol on the palate, it’s very warming, but still wonderful. Full body and pleasant carbonation. Dried dark fruits, some dried apricot and a little bitterness too deal with the sweetness. Plain lovely. 130809

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at THE Barley Wines Tasting - London. Many thanks to Bruce for this one. Pours mostly clear ruby-amber with a frothy, off-white foam head. Lots of brown sugar and toffee in the nose, some dark fruits, grapes, moderate roasty wood. Big sweet flavor, some alcohol punch, toasted caramel, dried berries, boozy wood, slight caramel. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Modest heat to finish with toasty sugars, lightly torched wood, some sticky brown sugar, light earth. Strong but quite good throughout. Nice depth and intensity.
