1liter bottle. Aroma fruity, whole array of tropical fruits, also caramel, small ripe grapes, also some hops. Hazy deep amber colour, stable head. Taste very complex, same as aroma. Cognac, wood, initially sweet, caramel and fruity. Towards the finish drying alcohol takes over. Full body, chewy mouthfeel. Late finish is dry alcohol, but not too unpleasant. One for sipping.

Bottle. Pours a murky chestnut with beige head and lacing. Nose is caramel, oak, roasted malt, vanilla, cherries, honey. Not much hop flavor, a little citrus and pine, but the bitterness is present. Finish is bitter hops, roasted malt and oak balanced by a little sweetness from the honey. Pretty tasty. Good for a nightcap in the winter.

Tried this a LONG time ago and LOVED it, tried it juts now at the pub and didnít love it. Typical barley wine. The aroma is fruit, bread. The appearance is a slightly translucent but hazy brown, white head. The flavor is fruity, bread, brown sugar, a little watery. Medium in body, slightly thin. The finish is citrus hops, sweet. Not bad overall, not great for the style.

S - I could really distinctly smell the honey. I canít think of any beer in which it was quite so noticeable.
T - Again not only could I smell the honey, I could taste it. This beer was surprisingly smooth. Give the ABV I remember thinking that was a little bit frightening that something 12% could be so smooth.
A - The appearance was really intriguing. The color wasnít quite what I had seen before
M -- Very good, smooth, tasted like honey but didnít affect mouth feel
O - It was very good, I donít know if I would want to drink this a lot. But it was good.
