4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasty - a little thin for the abv but a strong and not overly hoppy barley wine. Elegant rather than in your face.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma - oaken booze, alcohol, a definite oily hop quality
Appearance - orange body color; cloudy haze, there is some sediment possibly protein breaking down; head sets up rocky about 2 1/2" and the color is Wheat Brown
Taste - toffee presence is buried under boozy oak barrel liquor flavor. A musty funk as well
Palate body is medium; texture is slightly oily, some vinous liquor, and a little slick; carbonation is average; finish is boozy of oaken barrel liquor charring
Not sure if this is actually a Barleywine ~ it’s kind of confusing.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours an amber color with a soft fruity aroma. A slight caramel taste with a strong cask taste left on the palate after the swallow. A slight high alcohol flavor that lingers a little but gives a good burn. Overall a good Barley Wine.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Orange amber pour, aroma of hops and caramel, flavor of alcohol hops fruit and toffee. Not a bad beer but entirely unclear how it counts as a barleywine...

Cask at SIBA Beer X. Lovely looking, clear amber. Bubbly, lasting, white head. Light caramel. Some boozy fruit. A lick of saltiness. Warmth on the palate. One to take time over.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Bangers & Lace. Pours a near clear deep amber orange with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a combination of sweet grains, light caramel, grass and pine. Flavor is also a bit hoppy for a Barleywine with pine notes but is balanced by sweet grains and caramel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear golden color with a small off-white head. Fruity malty and slightly hoppy aroma. Sweet smooth warming malty flavor with hints of dark fruit. Sweet warming malty finish with a bitter aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft - nose is fruity as in apricots. Sip adds fruit flavor with an almost ripe character. Very fruity for the style. Dangerous for the drinkabilty considering the ABV.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a hazy dark golden /orange color with a thin off white film. The aroma and flavor have orange citrus, caramel, herbal, lightly toasted bread, mild bitterness. I like more malt sweetness with my barley wines. A bit thin.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate fruit, sweet malt and small alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate complex sweet flavor with a medium complex sweet finish of moderate duration. This is was a good soft for style beer.
