375ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut
Cookie-cutter rating, because of cookie-cutter beer (limousine light):
Carefully poured, even the third glass was cloudy. Messy alcoholic white grape must and doughy aroma, ugh. Fuck me, booze!!!! Tastes of alcohol burn. Some breadiness. Hard to believe that this isnít just doped with vodka, itís so boozy.
Difference: Way more raisins in the taste. Much better. Still an utter mess.

Hazy orange beer, no head to speak of. Nose is vanilla notes with malty sweetness, toasty notes. Flavor is sweetness and boozy bitterness, finishes with hoppy and boozy bitterness. Lingering toasty notes.

Ale Alpharetta. Boozy orange, ripe fruits, very sweet, vanilla, caramel, alcohol heat. Fun try, but more of a cognac type sipper than anything else. Room temp was optimal.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Shared at Ale Alpharetta by Hamp. Orange color, with a small, beige head. Lots of caramel, syrup, light vanilla, oak, and wheat. Incredibly sweet, and some light spice. Medium to heavy body, very syrupy, and sugary. This is fantastic, very sweet barley wine.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Guinnís house. Pours light amber red with no head. Aroma is lots of caramel and sweetness. Sticky sweet. For a beer this big the alcohol is well hidden. Nice sipping beer. But even this smaller bottled needed to be shared. Nutty and grainy flavors along with lots of toffee and caramel. But still, very sweet.

3rd bottle at the Fermentoren Aarhus French oak tasting. Pours a clear amber with a small, white head. This one has lots of tannins, oak, sweet jammy fruits, vanilla and caramel. Taste is very sweet, but with dry tannins, more malty sweetness. Very vinous. Big alco-heat in the finish. Red wine much more explicitly here.Low carb, oily body.
