4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle courtesy of my SD hookup. Murky light brown pour with a faint white head. Big cognac and caramel malt aromas. Lot’s of heat from the cognac. A little thin in the body with loads of sweet caramel notes with muted orange undercurrents. Perhaps not the traditional English barley wine, but still very tasty....

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Botte. It’s a clear one, dark amber to light brown in color and almost flat. It’s deliciously smelling, with caramel malts, roasted notes, dried fruits and caramel, alcohol and a touch of canned peaches. Some piney, resiny notes too. It’s full-bodied, warming and semi-sweet on the palate. Caramel, dried fruits and some roasted malts in the flavor. Peach hints and resiny, piney hoppy bitterness too. Lasting finish. Perhaps a bit too warming this one, but I like it a lot. It’s sweet, but far from sticky. Nice indeed. 141220
