4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle. Pours a nice dark caramel amber color with a beige head. Aroma is really complex, lots of oak, bourbon, vanilla, almost stout like qualities of roasted malt and chocolate, some sweet and caramel malt, toffee, charred oak, dark fruits, molasses and brown sugar. The flavor follows the nose and is amazing, lots of oak, bourbon and vanilla, with the stouty notes of roasted and toasted malt and chocolate, some sweet and caramel malt, charred oak, dark fruits, molasses, brown sugar and toffee. The body is full with a sticky mouth feel. Overall an amazing Barley Wine, and probably the best I have had!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 22oz, at TFODRBSG 2012. An almost clear one, brown in color and almost without any head. Alcohol, roasted malts, some pleasant hoppyness, a touch of vanilla and a dash of chocolate. Quite chocolatey in the flavor, with vanilla, alcohol, roasted malts and a fine bitterness. Too warm on the palate I think, but it’s pleasant anyway. Full body, sweetish. Some raisins and prunes. Really lasting finish, with the alcohol a bit too obvious. Overall, a really fine beer, but it’s too warming. A sharing beer. 120818

Big thanks to Joel for sharing this whale! Wow I think I may have just tried the best barley wine ever. The nose is just incredible: hints of vanilla, oak, sweet malt..the list goes one. Very easy to drink and incredibly smooth, ABV masked very well here. Incredible!
