3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
4th January 2010
Very hazy red-brown-amber beer. Rich malt nose with something else in there, red fruits. Soft palate and a little dry. Rich barleywine with noticeable alcohol aniseed from the high abv, no real heat though. The Port and Red Wine barrels provide some red fruit richness. A nice barlywine that is just slightly let down by the level of aniseed.

Pours a dark amber colour with a white head. Aroma of sweet berries, caramel, oak and nuts. Flavour of sweet caramel malts, sour lingonberries, oak, tannine, smooth wood and quite bitter hops. Full bodied, slick mouthfeel and a long, warming, rich and sweet finish. Truly a dessert.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle... medium brown rounded with amber, thin tan head... very malt forward, lots of brown sugar, caramel and molasses, rounded with a great hearty red wine barrel finish, a bit of oak, quite good... the taste is more of the nose but I like it a bit more, the accent of the red wine is excellent shows off more oak here... really enjoyed
