3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of wet hops, herbs and brown sugar. Deep brown color with a magenta tint. Flavors of brown sugar, ground cinnamon and some lightly fruity hops. Overall, this is a fairly basic barley wine with some brown sugar and rich toffee/caramel sweetness. There is a slight alcohol sting on the finish. Not bad. Iíd give this a B+ rating.

Shared bottle with friends. Poured a light copper color. Aroma was citrus, with a touch of tart fruity notes. Slight funk perhaps. This one was very smooth, with just a touch of funk notes along with sweet malts. Interesting. Alcohol is pretty well hidden. Nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. It pours a small, beige head over an unclear reddish body. Some alcohol in the aroma, along with caramel maltyness, dried fruits and some hoppyness. Citrus hints, pine cone notes and a lightly spiced touch. Itís full-bodied, lightly warming and quite silky on the palate. Nice balance between maltyness and bitterness and hoppy flavors. In comes the alcohol and adds more joy and smoothness. Overall, maybe a bit on the sweet side, but I still think itís a really pleasant and tasteful beer. 120324
