Sumptuous brown ale with sweet rich malty toffee. Subtle fruit. Lip smacking and moorish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is slight fruitbread, dark rum
Nutmeg. Appearance is still cognac. Flavor is gritty nutmeg and other indistinct spice. Dark rum and caramel pleases as it heats. Still much complexity seems washed out.

9.3 oz bottle, looks like flat cola. Aroma is sweet like fruit, heavy malt character. Spicy like a typical christmas beer. Taste is also sweet and spicy but not over the top. Palate is incredibly smooth and not overpowering. Overall solid offering, nothing too spectacular but does not disappoint. Great session beer, suited well for drinking on a cold Christmas day.

[3373-20100904] 9.3floz bottle. Petrol-soaked fruit cake aroma, the heavy kind. Murky, dark brown red body with a medium-lasting creamy light tan head. Thick boozy heavy fruit cake malt flavour. Thick full boozy body. Definitely reminds me of Christmas.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Deep caramel, thin dishwater like head, dies quickly, sparce lacing.   Certainly appears aged.   Faint dark pitted fruit, slight caramel, a little musty on the nose.   Smells like the backside of the curve.   Smooth caramel and dark pitted fruit on the tongue, a little malty.   Actually tastes better than I thought it was going to be.   Body is not all there, but hey, who knows how old this bottle is.   Comes across as a little bit of raisiny/pruny water, with some caramel sweetening.   Yeah, decent flavor just seems the body maybe has gone south.   Nose suggest some age.   Not bad for an English Barley Wine.   Certainly low on the hop aspect.   Decent.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Doft av söta mogna äpplen och alkohol. Någonstans mellan en engelsk strong ale och en barley wine. En av de bättre i kategorin. Mycket söta mogna, nästan övermogna äpplen, söt fruktkaka, lätt syrligt och allt bärs av de stadiga 8,1%procenten.
