Middle Ages Double Wench is a crystal clear, dense copper-brown ale with a thick, dense, beige head that has outstanding retention and lacing. It has a hoppy aroma, with notes of flowers, grass, citrus and pine. Thereís some caramel and a light sweetness from the malt. The malt and hops work together perfectly in the nose. Itís full bodied and very smooth. The finish is dry and leaves the mouth a little chalky. It has a bold, resiny flavor thatís very well balanced. Thereís the slightest bit of sweetness. There is a long, resiny bitterness that lingers. Itís not super unique, but itís a big, bold beer that demands you take notice.

Middle Ages high-end beers are awesome. If you like strong ales this is your gal. It has a sweetness that is perfect with a full body, great taste too.

The aroma is sharp pine and spruce hop. Sharp rye malts, dark and roasted. Touch of cherry and sugary raisin. Complex scent. The appearance is dark, hazy brick red. Decent slushy head. Thick sheet of lace. Murky and inviting. The flavor is gritty, burnt rye and barley. Touch of chocolate and burnt coffee. Grape, raisin, cherry. Very bitter spruce and pine oil hop. The palate is chewy and very thick. Alcohol burn on the swallow. Itís equal to (if not better than) the original. Double bitters of woody hops and burnt malts. Very good.

MadRobin (1947) - Silver Spring, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Poured from 22 oz. bottle. Dark red-brown with a 1-finger khaki head and very good lacing. Aroma of hops, raisins, caramel, toffee, pine, raspberries and rum. Taste of toffee, raisins, piney and other hops, rum, raspberries, caramel and cherries. Full/medium body and medium/high carbonation. A bit like a cross between a barleywine and a double IPA. Delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bought a bottle as I couldnít go to the Beerfest and wanted something different to appease my beer appitite.... and this fit the bill. Copper color, head not too thick even though not completely chilled... hoppy but not too much so, and nice and kick-a** with the ABV.... I like it, and will have this one again.

22oz bottle from trade. Pours a dark copper, murky with thick cap of tan head. Aroma is very barley wine with big caramel notes, dark fruit, hops and candied sugar. Taste is all of the notes from the aroma plus a hint of vanilla and some heat from the alcohol. Finish is warm and hoppy. Very good but more of a BW in my book.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2010
A dark reddish brown ale with a thin light moka head. A superb fruity hops and malts aroma, resinous and pinhey, just right. In mouth, intense malts, oily mouthfeel, pungeant, with good grassy hops, well sustained by the malts, treacle, licorice notes, all smooth and warming. On cask at the Peopleís Real Ale Fest, Clarkeís Ale House, April 30 2010.

Boliv (1149) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2010
Bomber. Pours brilliant garnet red with a medium creamy orangey/tan head. Aromas of caramel, sour cherry, sweet sugary pine, cocoa, raspberry, and alcohol. Flavor is a hint of sugar and very bitter pine, caramel, and a piney/black peppery/boozy alcohol finish. Finishes with some earthy cocoa notes. Bitter, full-bodied, creamy, and very warming. The 12% isnít hidden at all here, but it works; this is a big beer. A nice balance between bitter pine and sugar, with tons of warming alcohol. Very good.

Big beer! Pours dark amber with a glue thick head. Aroma is burning alcohol and hops. Flavor is hot on the palate with boozy hops, a bit much but I love it.
