Bottle from MisoW, many thanks man. Orange color with medium white head. Sweet malt, citrus hops in aroma. Solid malty base followed by nice citrus hoppy aroma. For me more Imperial IPA than Barley wine, but very tasty.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy brown pour with a light beige head. Aromas of herbal resinous hops and full malty, nutty sweetnes to acompany the hoppy freshness. The taste is very ’american barleywine’ with its emphasis on the hoppy qualities. Full, fesh and rich in taste with only a slight amount of fruity notes. Medium mouthfeel with a medium to soft carbonation. Aftertaste as expected.. Hoppy and lingering.. Good.

Sabores maltosos dulce de caramelo tostado y cereales con final amargo, ligeramente resinoso y duradero por un buen rato. Una barley wine dulce, tostada con grandes dosis de amargo seco y resinoso. Solo un pelin por debajo de la b.a. grand marnier. Buenisima!!!!

Aroma is roasted malts, pineapple, apple, honey and an earthiness. Taste is sweet malts and a fairly deep hop profile that has clove, lemon grass and hay. Finishes with light tanin and liquor snap. Appearance is a cloudy orange with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

pours orange hazy and smooth with sticky lacing and nice head. Nose explodes with pine and some orange rind/ zest. Taste is similar with a load of pine and citrus rind giving it bitterness that is clean but not overly complex. a hint of orange sweetness but not very much. Palate was medium heavy but oh so drinkable. Very smooth. Should add that this was a three year old bottle.
