4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Hazy brownish amber pour with a fizzy beige head that quickly diminishes to a ring around the surface. Malty, woody aroma has notes of honey, caramel, brandy, brown sugar and pinot noir as well as a hint of fruity hops, both citrus and tropical. The flavour is fruitier and more vinous but stil has a strong malt backbone; with notes of toffee, honey, passionfruit, pineapple, grapefruit, oak and grapes. Sticky, oily mouthfeel with moderate carbonation and a lingering, slightly roasty, bittersweet finish. Was delighted to get my hands on one of these babys and I wasnít disappointed. A very well crafted beer, the balance tips a bit towards sweet fruitiness in the flavour, but otherwise this is damn good. Wish I had another to cellar for a year or two...

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Actually this was the 2011, which is a Belgium style quadruple, rather than Barley wine. 0.75l bottle from Beer DeLuxe in Federation Square. Bottle poured into 6 glasses to share with family. Sediment obvious towards the end of the pour. Pours as a hazy dark amber. Huge amounts of spiciness, and essence of pinot noir wine. 12% alcohol.

At Ministry of Beers Craft Beer Festival at Archive. Big, bold and worth waiting for this is a full flavoured high alcohol brew that hangs onto the palate long after the beer is gone.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of bluebetty. Pours a hazy dark amber with a lacing off-white head. The nose is nutty with some wood, roasted malt and dry caramel. Medium body, surprisingly well-carbonated, spicy, woody notes, a whiff of smoke and dry overripe fruit. Extremely dry, surprisingly for the style, but it makes it very drinkable. Some bittering hops in the finish, but this really ainít a hoppy beer. A very different - but interesting - take on a Barley Wine. 241010

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml capped bottle 2011 Vintage listed as a Belgian style Quadruple pours amber in color with a 3 finger white head that retains well and eventually settles to reveal some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is raisiny with hints of alcohol, oak and yeast. Taste is a dark fruit (red wine grapes) and light chocolatey malt sweetness with a generous alcohol burn and a spicy hop bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied with nice carbonation leaving a nice sensation on the tongue. A pretty decent brew for the style and recommended to try once, even though it is quite pricey.
