3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle, as Vintage 2008.
Pours a slightly cloudy, deep orange/amber, with a thin white head.
Spicy, mature aromas, marzipan, leather, hazelnuts, dried apricots, caramel, fudge, butter, wood?
Semi-sweet, full bodied, high bitterness, low CO2.
The taste is likewise matured, lots of secondary flavours, marzipan, leather, tobacco, chocolate, walnuts, almonds. There is, however, also a slightly sour note, and the alcohol burns through rather intensely. The best offering I’ve had from this brewery, bot not quite top notch.

Dark amber colored, clear with minimal head.
Caramel, lightly toasted malts, dark fruits and nutty aroma with a little alcohol.
Taste is sweet, heavy, no bitterness, and I think got umami.
Full bodied and thick and creamy on a palate. Very nice barley wine overall.
