1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
BLEGH. This is not good. On tap at Kinetic to snifter. Pours brown no head, aroma of alcohol. little hops little malt mostly just booze. Taste is the same with mostly a hot tongue. palate is thin and hot like it was spiked with too much corn sugar. Overall the clear loser of the bunch. might be one of the worst barleywines I’ve ever had.

From a bottle. Pours murky brown, minimal head, malty biscuit aroma, smooth, warming on the palate with some hop punch. Great stuff.

"another big sweet beer from Moylan’s. A little on the maltier side, with a thick, soft mouthfeel, this is a good after dinner sipper. Ages well, and it’s very nice on tap."

A nice barley wine. Reddish body. Nice sweet malty aroma. Kind of a hoppy element to this considering it's a barley wine. Nice.

Bottle @ BeerTemple, Amsterdam.
Thought it was a barrel aged DIPA, turned out to be a very dry/hopped barley wine. Deceptively drinkable, quite nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dirty, hazy orange with decent, short-lived head and not much lacing. Aroma is sweet, spicy, nutty with toffee. Taste is caramel malts, toffee, herbal, brown sugar, finishing a little drier with hops. Not a bad one, but not outstanding in any particular way. ABV not obvious.
