When itís poured in glass a dark orange beer with a stable and persistent creamy foam head is seen. The aroma has some floral and citric notes being prevalent some orange and coffee notes. When is tasted a full body thick can be felt with a bitter end.

Bottle, 50cl. Pours with a light, clear reddish, amber color, large airy and bobble head which falls to a decent thin, but stable one-finger off-white head. Aroma is quite modest malty, dark fruits (raisin), yeast, and clear alcohol. Sweet, malty and sugar-like flavor, hobs and raisin as it becomes slight bitter in a dry, medium finish. Soft carbonation. Alcohol is well-hidden, bit warming, but not that much.

Very malty, fruity, slightly nutty and citrusy aroma with hint of strawberries. Sweet fruity flavor is slightly nutty and it finishes citrusy-dry and moderately bitter. Medium body and warming palate.

very very nice, a barley wine i think isn't it? when it warms, the complexities of the flavor balance against the alcohol hit. nice look too, easier to find in the skinny bottles. worth a try, worth to be a regular

A deep amber coloured beer with a thin, beige head. There are caramel, alcohol and honey in the aroma. The taste is sweet and malty with notes of orange and bread. The texture is oily, the finish is long and bitter-sweet. Itís a good one! It will be one of my favourite beers!

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!

A great ale.
