This beer was great. Aged two years, the sweetness of dark fruits (plums or raisins?) really came through. It was smooth and bourbon-like in flavor, and just a great beer in general.

This barley wine has some major kick to it. Very attractive dark copper color with next to no head. No lacing what so ever. Has alcohol burn with a general balance of flavor. Great beer if you need or want a very quick buzz.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours ruby-tinged copper with a off-white head.
Nose shows golden syrup, bready melanoidin notes, sultanas and soft booze.
Very rich, malty flavours. Bready melanoidin malt, alcohol, sultanas, brandy. A little harsh.
Slick body, carbonation seems a bit high.
