4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2012 A clear deep chestnut amber brew, an off-white head, good lacing and some curtains.
Smelling of toffee, muffin batter, butter scotch, nuts and almonds. Some vanilla.
Starting with brown bread, brown sugar, syrup, dates, raisins, sherry, some bitter orange peel. Eggnog.
Medium carbonation, small bubbles, smooth, oily, sticky. A warm feeling (of alcohol), a big body.
A very sweet and warm barley wine. A real candy shot. Wonder how it will mature?
Bottle 330 ml. This was the 2010 vintage, 10% ABV.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Malt aroma with hints of orange and chocolate. The flavor is sweet malt with chocolate undertones, some caramel and alcohol. An okay beer, but it does not really give me the "kick", can not say exactly why. Should probably try this again!
