3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle split at Madmitch76 20K tasting, thanks to Kenny, 15/01/16.
Chestnut brown with a moderate beige covering that quickly dissipates to nyadda.
Nose is nutty, molasses, toffee, grain, airy malt.
Taste packs more punch, dark fruit rinds, dates, caramel, malt loaf, toasted brown sugar.
Full bodied, fine carbonation, warming alcohol in the close.
Doesn’t deliver a great deal on the ABV but has held together fairly well and is a drinkable enough sipper.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ 10K + OT. Thanks, Chris. A rare eisbock rake. Very dark brown pour with some reddish highlights. This one is done. Cardboard, roast, water, chocolate, and a touch of caramel. Mostly cardboard though. Flavor is papery, watery, and oxidized. Light sweetness of chocolate, dark fruit, and caramel. But again, mostly cardboard. Dead.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Toasty amber colour. Aroma of sweet malts, rosehips and toast. Evocative of warm bricks. Sweet, refined maltiness. Toasty, toffee and even some slight esters. Still comes off as a bit light compared with the Eggenberg or old Niagara examples.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Small, quickly dissipating tan head atop a clear copper body. Aroma is sticky sweet, toffee/caramel, cherry, almond. Taste is much the same, finishing with cherry cough syrup and a serious alcohol warming. As it warms, barleywine elements come forth. Full/medium body, almost no carbonation.
