3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2013 Pours copper with a nice head that receeds fast. Aroma is basically alcohol and some grains. Light toffee flavors with brown sugar and no noticeable alcohol burn. Easy drinking with low-med carbonation, An OK barleywine overall.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 56220 from The Parcel Yard. Pours rich dark amber (or ripe apricot?) with a beige head. Aroma is fruity with some rich roasty malt support. Near full bodied. Flavor is rather roasty malt, but very smooth, some slight darkish fruits, The hopps are a bit earthy as well as fruity. Sometimes a quaff seems to be fresh light stone fruit juice. Sometimes the hops seem a bit oxidized (which I believe to be a signature of the series and one reason I love it). Ale to cherish. I think the finish is not dry, but I think it qualifies as bitter. Love it!

Si presenta bene, colore arancio ambra carico appena velato, bella la schiuma sottile e cremosa, leggermente tendente al beige. Al naso risalta il malto, il caramello e si avvertono giŗ note alcoliche e di dark fruits. Al palato Ť tendenzialmente dolce, con accenni di amaro quasi assenti, . Molto bene líalcol, ben evidente ma mai stucchevole, che riscalda senza eccedere, perfetta la carbonazione.

16.9oz bottle at Fleet Street Pub - fire alarm is over. Nose is bread, caramel and some hops I recognize but canít identify (something youíd find in an oktoberfest). Easy to drink for 8.5%. Not worth the price but still tasty.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Burnished amber colour, a skim of cream coloured head and a persistent set of trails of carbonation. The aromas are of lush stonefruit, rolled sweet pastry and autumnal orchard fruit, even some pecan nuttiness. Itís a rich front and this comes through into a silky, oily, slick mouthfeel that is just so elegant, it deserves to be clad in ermine. There is a generous dollop of sweetness, but it isnít cloying at all. Each sip brings a sigh of happiness, but I might just be a sucker for this style.

Ganske lækker kvalitets specialudgave øl fra Fullers. Lidt sød nok pga den høje alkoholprocent. Men en rigtig dejlig oplevelse - dog alt alt for dyr...

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2015 Bottiglia 25968 aperta il 29 Marzo 2015.
Color ambrato con discreta persistenza della schiuma.
Corpo medio-pieno, poco carbonata.
Al naso e al palato sentori di caramello e vino liquoroso, uva passa e albicocca matura, note legnose, sul finale si percepisce il luppolo e l'alcol che scalda la bevuta.
Decisamente buona, da provare.
