Odysseyalien's rating

Odysseyalien (59) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Bottle. Age unknown but it looks like the one in the picture at this site. No head when poured. Thin lacing...almost cirrus cloud-like formations as it’s sipped away. Golden in color in my snifter...a few bits of light sediment accumulating at the bottom of the glass. The taste comes on in fine British barley wine style -- malts up front...raisins...pepper...light hops...yum. Unfortunately, it’s a bit too thin on the palate for my taste. Almost like sipping water on the backend. Too bad cause this might otherwise have been one of the best British barley wines out there for the price. The "thiness" of the backend killed it for me. Not sure if I’ll buy this one again.

slowrunner77 (7083) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 17, 2015
sweet leaning - caramel raisins and toffee on the nose, with a nip of alcohol. Sweet and thick going down. Gotta be in the mood for this type of BW, but it’s nice.

Hopmaestro (474) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 2, 2015
Aroma is thick sweetness, raisins and maybe some honey with a tad of alcohol? The taste is red berries, light malts, ripe sweet plums theat leads into a nice subtle bitterness. This is a sipper, and I had a nice session enjoying this one. It feels like meeting an old relative, and you just sit back and enjoy a story being telled from their childhood.
