Marvellous, quite splendid! Full and tasty barley wine. Soft and sweet with a hint of bitterness. Much less harsh than a young Fullers Vintage. This is a very special British beer. Ay, most glorious!

Excellent. A dark amber/red ale with light brown head. Aroma is malty, fruity (plum, cherries), sherry-like, some bread and roasted too. Taste is sweet with an average bitter end. Good carbonation, medium body.
A great ale.

(Bottle) Pours amber with a tall dense beige head, Sweet malty aroma. Sweet malty flavor ending in a hoppy bitterness. Smooth and easy drinkable in spite of the high alcohol considering it is a all-malt beer. Really nice

Bottle poured into tulip glass. Pours a beautiful amber colour, with a white-cream head, some lacing. Aroma is sweet biscuits, and the inside of a sauna (not the sweat!). Tastes roasty, toasty, slightly spicy. Mouthfeel is very full, alcoholic burn towards the end. Not for me, but itís a nice beer.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Reddy amber, small tan head. Clear, flat.
Beautiful fruity/caramel malty aroma.
Intense peppery bitterness throughout, which slightly masks some fruity flavours.
Medium palate, enough carbonation.
Very good, a little too far towards the hopiness for my liking but quite well balanced. One of my favourites.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
A powerful and very malty beer with a warming alcohol taste( i havent worked out wether i like that yet). Deep ruby colour. If you going to drink this sort of barly wine-esk beer, might as well go for vintage, its only the bottle conditioned version of this.

A clear dark amber colour with a white head. Aroma of roasted malt, honey and fruits with a flavour to match. The alcohol comes through for a nice finish.

Op het eerste gezicht veel koolzuur. Weinig geur. Nootjes geur.
Lichte alcohol branding in buik. Nootjes smaak. Alcohol brand niet in de mond maar wel in je buik. Niet lekker. Niks bijzonders.

500ml bottle, bbe 21/12/2012. Pours a clear mahogany brown with a fast receding, bubbly, cream colored head that leaves a little lace on the edges. Aroma is sweet, caramel, a little fig and dried fruit. Taste is sweet malt, overripe fruit, a little alcohol and earthy hops. Medium to low carbonation, mouthfeel is a little on the thin side. Decent, though not wholly interesting.
