3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
clear dark brown, smooth offwhite head.
rathier mild old ale aroma, slight fruitiness, some malts.
flavor is very dry dark caramelly, normal to sweet malty, faint dark chocolate, faint cristmas spicy note. Also a flavor like the dark fruits in a belgian quad. Raisins, plums. A barley wine with a flavor profile that resembles brown ale a bit, but also lends from other heavy brews (except the roasted ones), pretty complex and quite tasty. I’d put it down as an american strong ale instead of barley wine. The hop profile is very subdued, and doesn’t add much flowers and even not much bitterness for an american brew.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2008 Date: 09/14/2004
opaque rusty orange with a nice off-white head, strong earthy hop aroma, big hop flavor on a rich malt base, just enough sweetness to balance the hops, full flavor to the end
fair amount of oxidation showing up in the flavor and aroma but still quite viable, lots of rich brown sugar sweetness, plenty of fruity sweetness,
Aroma: 7/10; Appearance: 8/10; Flavor: 7/10; Palate: 5/10; Overall: 16/20
The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.
