Dark brown color with an off white head. Fruity, toffee, caramel and chocolate in the aroma. Full body and oily. Candy, fruity, toffee, vanilla and some spices. A bit to much sweet sugary for me!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of goryshkewych. Cheers, George! Pours a hazy amber-copper with a white head. Nose is caramel, some toffee, some raisins, some citrus, and some booze with bits of bitterness like nuts on a toffee. Flavor is similar- toffee and caramel with lots of bitterness, citrus and hints of grapefuit interspersed with some alcohol. Very enjoyable barleywine overall.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, courtesy of makrwise, pours with a mahogany colored body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up earthy sweet dates, brown sugar, prunes and some molasses. This is an inviting odor that I have a hard time resisting. Here goes, the taste delivers brown sugar, molasses and prunes and then a pleasing degree of earthy sugary dates and a bit of fig that joins in toward midway. Wow! This is nice but will be even better with some more cellar time to better smooth out and integrate that flavor notes.

Taste is slightly harsh boozy, grass, alcohol, harsh hops, caramel malts, "knekk", citrus peel, hay, nuts, cardboard, dried fruits. Medium to longlasting bitterness, slightly harsh and dry mouthfeel.
