3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark orange with almost no head. Aroma: hopps, heavy malt aroma, "fruit with sugar", a touch of spices. Taste: pretty complex and heavy, with some taste of honey, caramel, strong malt character, hops, a bif of liquorish aftertaste. Pretty sweet, but at the same time not outbalanced. A very good barley wine.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep ornge honey coloure beer with a soft dark white head. On the nose aromas of butterscotch, toffee, wet grass-hay and faintly resin-wood-herbal notes arise. The texture is rather softly with a full body. Sweet butterscotch flavour with hints of herbal notes. The finish is lasting with a pleasant linger of herbal-butterscotch. Nice and goes well with Gorgonzola.
