3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A hazy red beer with a light red head. The aroma is sweet and very hoppy with some fruityness in the back ground combined with the alcohol. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of caramel as well as hops, alfa acids, and alcohol. The end is very lovely bitter.

(Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of boboski. Slightly hazy amber golden with an off-white head, leaving laces. Fresh aroma of citrus and fat hop oils. Full-bodied, sweetish caramel, perfumy hop accents and then a very brutal bitterness. I find this out of balance with a very pushy alcohol. 150907

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, thanks hopsrus!! Dark reddish brown. Strikingly grpefruity hoppy nose hits me hard. Hops doemintes from start to finish, the 10% alcohol is completely overpowered. Full bodied and thick with layer after layer ofsoapy grapefruit, and a tremendously bitter finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Central City Liquors, Surrey
Dark amber color, almost brown, with medium sized nitro creamy head. Strong aroma of malt, caramel, some fudge; and hops; later, there are tones of cream, sweet nuts, phenol. It’s full bodied, with a very good malt flavor, compounded by a characteristic dark caramel, roasted nuts, and very strong bitterness; the final presents some nice hop resins, and more nuttiness.
Very good, nutty American Barley Wine.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden-amber coloured. Spicy, minty aroma with hints of toffee. The flavour has a lot of elements - toasty, bitter, woody, hints of caramel. But having a lot of things going on doesn’t matter if they don’t work together. Throwing a bunch of stuff in the kettle is not the path to great beer, which is a shame because some of Fish’s other beers show that they know this.

(Bottle, October 2003 vintage) Pours a cloudy amber with a medium-sized long-lasting beige head and good lacing. Aroma of breadiness, toffee, citrus, and alcohol. Flavor of malt, alcohol, oak, hops, and a hint of cocoa with a dry, chaulky, bitter finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Minimal beige head atop floatie-filled opaque copper. Aroma is sweet, pine, grapefruit, toffee/maple, light oak. Taste is medium sweet, caramel/toffee at the start, but quickly turns to big pine, some grapefruit, some caramel, oak. Full body that conceals the alcohol well. Not for the faint of heart, but those of hearty constitutions will be richly rewarded.
