3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2007 2007-10-06, bottle at Brickseller, Washington DC, 6-3-7-3-14=33
Amber color; beautiful creamy head. A good balanced Ale, with a good body strength, malty, quite good flavor, also milky (but puke comes out too), but it’s not as special as I remembered.
2003-03-02, Winter 1997-1998 Edition, 5 years old, 8-5-9-5-17=44.
Cloudy dark amber color with a persistent layer of foam; nice perlage. Wonderful aroma of malt, some hop, caramel, nuts, some phenols; pretty similar to some barley wine, but less sweet.
Excellent body texture, good balance of malty body and strong bitterness with good hop aromas, caramel, chocolate. Ending with a boldly bitter and aromatic final; a lot of caramel as well.
Maybe it has lost some hop freshness, but it has aged well, showing only a very light Madeira character.
An excellent low alcohol Barley Wine, without the alcohol punch.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Half Time. Pours copper with a large foamy beige head. Mildly floral aroma. Medium body with lightly frothy carbonation. Flavor is malty, light roasted, with floral hop. It’s dryish, but not harshly bitter. Heat is lightly present, and English Strong Ale seems an apt descriptor. Upon reflection the roast malt aspect is fairly strong. All the flavors seem to increase with time.
