3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Underwhelming. Lacks the thick oomph of great barley wines. Candy sugar nose. Very high alcohol but doesn’t taste all that malty. Weirdly watery. Hugely bitter aftertaste. I"m not a fan of this.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
On tap at the ChurchKey, DC. A rich, dark amber beer with an off-white head. A lovely sharp and fresh nose with various fruits, some booze and biscuit malt. There are a range of sweet, fruity and roasted elements here, all in a great blend. Caramel, ripe berries, orange, lemon, biscuity malt and tropical fruit work well together. The body is rich and dense. Nicely discernible but well blended tastes. Everything you could ask for in a big Euro BW.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12.7 oz bottle at home. Pours a clear dark caramel brown color with a few random bubbles. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, toffee, dark ripe fruit, raisins, wood, figs, candi sugar, very little carbonation but I don’t mind that with this beer, strictly a dessert type beer, surprising that it isn’t hot, I have had this in the cellar for a bit.
