(Bottle 27,5 cl) Courtesy of boboski. Hazy amber golden with a small, off-white head. Somewhat special tobacco aroma - fresh tobacco leaves. Quite full-bodied, sweetish - even sugary - oxidized sherry notes and then again fresh tobacco. A little salty perhaps. Absolutely no bitterness. 200608

18th January 2009
2007 Bottle. Hazy amber brown beer. A few white suds. Low carbonation. Not as sweet as the other Harvests. Has a soft feel. A little burnt toffee and just a sublte sherry tone. Nice beer but lacks the wow factor of the Port and the Calvados. Maybe should have been barrelled for longer?

Hazy dark amber color, with small sized creamy head. At first there is a whiff of oxidization; then the aroma is malty, with light chestnut honey, similar to mead. The malt flavor is rich, delicious as usual from J.W. Lees, sweet, round, almost honeyish, with some toffee, caramel, impression of sweet nuts, almost no oxidization, and comforting alcohol warmth.
This one is the most Barley Wine of tonight’s parallel tasting, the most elegant.

great thanks to Papsoe for sharing!
Hazy dark amber color. Sweet malt aroma. It has a full mouthfeel, with full malt flavor, very sweet, classic English Barley Wine, with minimum bitterness. Almost syrupy at the end, but luckily there is some more caramel and bitterness. It may be my imagination, but I feel some cherries both in the aroma and flavor. In complexity, it’s second to the Lagavulin only. Excellent.
