Decent one with some malty hints and loads of alcohol. Some nuts, bit toffee - quite unspectacular but drinkable. Well made beer but...there are better dogs flying around.

Pours a dark amber colour with a small white bubbly head. Aroma - malt forward, not terribly exciting, some toffee, toasted grains. Taste - well balanced bitterness, the crystal malt provides just the right amount of toffee and caramel without going to far. Some nutty flavours and a touch of red fruit. Nice winter sipper but nothing special.

Homebrew taste and smell initially then u get the alcohol burn. Your burps burn a little too... Ok for a cold cold day in the wilderness by the fire

Keg @ Sedona. The pour’s deep brown with a small head. Sort of toasty on the nose. A touch of vinous red berry skin. Toffee. The taste is similar. Hot toffee, cherry skin. Cocoa. Mildly tangy on the finish. Full, soft body. Fine carbonation. Good.

Ett slags Barley Wine Light. Har hjärtat på rätta stället men når ändå inte riktigt ända fram.

Pours a clear ruby brown with a light tan head. Aroma of cinnamon, syrup and spice. Taste is dark cherry sweet with cinnamon. It’s also quickly replaced by a firm, but not hoppy bitterness. This bitterness nicely balances the malt sweetness for a clean finish, which masks the ABV and makes it very drinkable for a Winter Special ale.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
355ml bottle, pours clear amber with a medium sized creamy tan head with good retention. Aroma of apricots and caramel. Taste of apricots, caramel, maple syrup and a hint of spices. Light sweetness and medium bitterness. Medium body, creamy texture and soft carbonation. An okay English Strong Ale, but not as spicy as you would expect from a Winter Ale.
