2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. An unclear dark golden beer with some floaties. Almost no head. The aroma is quite boozy, with canned sugary tropical fruits and some camphor. Even more booze. It’s full bodied, warming as hell, sticky sweet and almost flat on the palate. The flavor is fruity and sugary with too much alcohol. Lasting finish. Way, way too boozy this one, just like the other beers in this series. 150522

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance is dark amber with little to no head. Aroma of ripe peaches and raisons. Tastes like caramelized raisons with a hint of oak and a slight booziness but no where near the booze burn I expected for a 19+% barley wine. Overall a very tasty brew to finish out the night. Will do well with some age.
