3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle says "vintage??" Amber brown with fast disappearing white head. Aroma is sweet sugar, malts, hops, bread & cookies. Sweet spicy warm, sticky & a bit alcohol burning. However alcohol is well hidden in the flavor. Nice lacings. Very well balanced. Complex barley wine & still easy drinkable. Wauw!

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2003 Completely muddled. Terrible structure problems, as alcohol, green apples and poorly extracted malts compete for attention. And where are the hops? Finishes like a durian smells.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Good caramelly sugar aroma, some alcohol, hint of grassy hops. Deep dark red/brown with small floaties. The flavour is very sweet, caramelly, slightly roasted. Slightly rough finish, probably both from alcohol and hops, but good. Too sweet, though.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Labeled 2006B. Aroma of malt and chocolate - I think there really was a light wiff of licorice when the cap came off. No head. Brownish color. Starts dried plum and raisin. It’s malty sweetish, and has a firm mouthfeel. Hop is very light. The alcohol warms the palate, and the throat, and below. As it warms, there does seem to be pear, probably not apple.The mouth sensations do seem to turn a bit unpleasant, if one quits sipping. Sort of like heated banana. This is pretty complex.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a murky orangey brown with almost no head. Aroma of plum, raisins, caramel malts, and a little molasses - not overly aromatic though. Flavour of sweet dried fruits, caramel malts / toffee, pepper and an herbal quality. Not terrible complex and the palate is not overly dense - also a bit cloying in sweetness. Quite decent though.
