3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Red amber with a small but lasting off-white head. The aroma has fruity peach and tangerine, some sherry notes, and vineous alcohol, bordering ever so slightly on paint thinner. Fruit and sherry in the flavour too, with a sugary sweetness. Big fruity hops at work to cover the alcohol, but doesn’t quite succeed.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
dark amber, smooth offwhite yellowish thick head.
aroma is prickly strong boozy, flowery hops, eggyolk, malts, quite strong aroma but not very flavorfull. lots of punch.
flavor is sweet malty, faint hoppy, boozy, but less boozy than 17.6% for sure, faint citric note. orange. Need some time to adjust to such a high abv, but the beer itself is a good very sweet barley wine with some hops to balance.

Bottle from Healthy Spirits (via joshuahfl). Pours hazy gold with a few bubbles. Aroma is deeply warming alcohol with something like persimmon notes. Full bodied. There’s a lot of caramel, moderate heat. Otherwise flavor is candied fruit. Would be interesting to see how this aged, but sadly this is my only bottle!
