3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours Amber with a small off-white head. The aroma is fruity with moderate alcohol. The flavor has caramel, melon, peach, and cherry notes. The alcohol presence is evident. Medium body with medium-low carbonation. Very good strong ale with complex favors and nice warming alocohol sensation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle.
Clear mahogany body with a decent head.
A bit too sweet upfront, but I often think this about barleywines.
Moderate complexity with partially hidden ABV.

Looks like prune juice... But don't let that bother you. It's supremely smooth & creamy. Flavours of chocolate, vanilla, toffee and alcohol. It's sweet smooth and very satisfying.

Drank from bottle. Fruity aromas, some say pear, I say ok. Taste is fruity, sweet, lightly malty, good. Enjoyed, but a bit too sweet and malty for my preferences.

I had many years ago andjust getting to rating now. I like the ale but it wasn’t the greatest. Was missing something od a complexity. Too base but did have a smooth finish. Tap
