3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: 2012 vintage, almost 3 years old. Thick burnt orange & copper body with a small beige collar. Aroma of heavy toasted rye bread, milled grains, caramel, a touch of paper, very mild raisin, maybe a touch of brandy-ish booze? Flavor of figs, dates, sherry, caramel, light toffee, raisin, mild staleness, a hint of braised wheat, lightly burnt toast. Sweet, but balanced with a small touch of earthiness. Not bad.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bottle, pours an unclear amber brown with an off white head, the aroma is malty and sweet at first with some of the hops coming through as well, the flavor has a hop front end with a biscuity and malt finish, booze is well hidden, nice mouthfeel, pretty good.

15th February 2013
Hazy amber beer with a good off white head. Palate is smooth with a minerally crisp trailing edge, Creamy malt with a nice tangy sweet vibe that resolves in to sherbet candy. Mild crystallised fruits. Light dry finish. Unusual and delicious!

Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy orange with small frothy white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is floral hop and vanilla. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet malt and light hop with sweet finish. A good barley wine from Kuhnhenn.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was a huge surprise. My expectations were so low but this pulled through. Really nice doughy biscuity maltiness with lots of sweetness but it doesnt finish cloying. Relatively drinkable and nice.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft. Aroma has notes of citrus hops, orange candy, caramel, malted wheat and wood. Awesome nose! Hazy dark amber hue with an average off-white head and great lace. Flavor is very sweet and bitter. Palate is very full bodied and oily soft. Overall a wonderful wheat wine that nailed every mark. No trace of that 11%abv. Just loved this one.
