[Bottle] Clear brown pour with a quickly receding white head. Nose of sticky caramel and toffee along with darker fruit notes. Flavors of fig, fruitcake, candied plums, toffee and mild earthy hops. Sweet finish. The alcohol is very well disguised. I didn’t realize the ABV was so high until after drinking it. Medium carbonation. Smooth and quite drinkable for the style.

The aroma is very sweet with caramel and somewhat like licorice with hints of butterscotch and earth. The appearance is hazy orange brown with no head. The taste is like the aroma with an astringent finish. The palate is thick. Overall good but flawed.

YigSvartka (145) - Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 29, 2014
Translucent copper brown. No head. Somewhat stunted dried fruit (plums, raisins), cotton candy, and booze aroma. Smooth, creamy, and relatively thin for a barley wine. Initial taste is sweet raisins, plums, licorice, and caramel. Finish consists of the same flavours, but with an added hop and alcohol taste. Malt is present as well. Although not terrible, too sweet for my liking.

BVery (7267) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle. Murky reddish amber pour with a smaller ring head. Nice aroma of rich malt, touch of wood, dark fruit. Good hop bite. A bit boozy but I kinda like that.

dmac (4349) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 8, 2014
12oz bottle from Manahawkin Spirits. Poured a thick slightly murky reddish deep brown with a smaller foamy light beige head. Aroma is cardboard, raisins, dates, seltzer, nut shells and some dry mollasses. Body is slightly srupy, no heat, average carbonation. Flavor is far more sweet than the aroma super cloying, dificult to drink, molasses, caramel, nut shell and biscuit on the end with raisin bread dough. Blah the flavor comes off too big and not in a good way.
