4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beautiful orange to light amber color; the head reduces into a thin creamy cap. Very nice aroma, malty, sweet, with a clear apricot touch. Full bodied, with a good malt flavor; quite sweet but less than I expected, with a touch of oak vanilla that is particularly appreciated; all complemented by a fairly strong bitterness (but less than the American habit suggests), and with a lot of toffee in the end, too. Straight but balanced Barley Wine; I would describe it more as a Strong Belgian Ale with an apricot and vanilla touch (as it’s less malty and sticky than a Barley Wine in my mind); very very good.

RBESG08 grand tasting. Smells of a strong malty beer, some US hop. A bit sickly maybe. Lots of hops. Lots of malt and hops which are a tad unbalanced maybe.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(750ml bottle) Particles suspend in a hazy amber solution topped by a big beige head. Aroma is sweet, grapefruit, herbal, some caramel, light alcohol. Taste is quite sweet, grapefruit, caramel, some herbal, orange, light alcohol. Medium body, definitely light for the style, moderate resin. Alcohol fairly well disguised. The coherence of the beer falls apart somewhat at room temperature, so best drink it quick (easier said than done in 750 size) or with a friend.
