glennmastrange (2663) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Bottle. Moderate to heavy cookie, roasted and caramel, moderate cooked orange for the hops, moderate dough and leather for the yeast, with notes of date and toffee. Head is small, wispy, off-white with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is murky medium orange/tan. Flavor starts moderately to heavily sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes moderately sweet and lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is medium to full, oily with a almost flat carbonation and a lightly alcoholic and chewy finish. Big and bold aromas and flavors combined with a perfect feel make this a relatively easy drinking Barley Wine.

Sampled from draught at Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival 2005.
Hazy amberorange with a foamy tan head. Sweet aroma, mostly of chocolate and caramel with a candied edge and some note of toffee and cake in there as well. Nice, full and complex. Flavor has malt and chocolate along with caramel and a nice and warming alcohol tone. The mouthfeel is soft and smooth with a dry finish. Good one!
