3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft pour at Farmers Cabinet. Clear but very dark red brown color with a decent off-white head. Medium-light dark caramel body. Oversoaked burnt cereal. Bit like a wet sock unfortunately, but this is likely an overripe pour. Dark amber fruit. Plums. Apricot ears. Black cherries. Light liquorice. Portobello mushrooms. Somewhat complicated but feels way too thin and past due. Have had in the bottle (which also read a bit thin) where it felt fresher. Know that the age of this keg is a detrimental factor, but still find it hard to imagine a worthy proper Barleywine coming out of this. Will try again, but cannot recommend for now.

Draft at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a clear amber brown color with a thin off white film. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, dark fruits, caramel, some wood and a hint of earthy bitterness and light spices. Very smooth from the cask, but sweet.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap sample. Poured hazy reddish color with a moderate frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate dark fruit, wet wood and small alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate dark fruit sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a soft beer for style.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Taster on tap at Ei8ht Ball. A standard CO2 tap, as far as I can tell. Mustiness, dark fruit, and light spice in the aroma. Caramel in the flavor, light spice, some dry oxidization-type flavors. Bigger bite to it. Moderate to bigger bitter taste. Moderate sweet. Some toasty spicy malt flavors. Light earthy hop. Some mild, light dark fruitiness. Clear amber brown color. Minimal ring of off-white head, couple bits of lace. Bigger body. Smooth, light carbonation. More dry finish. Decent UK strong ale.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2014 From tap. Fruity. Wood. Really complex nose. Hints of sherry. Taste is cherries and cork. Some treacle. Lots of flavors. Hard to say this is great. Easy to say this is interesting.

Kveldens siste på Mandag i annen jan-14: har bare drukket denne fra flaske, kjekt å få den på cask. Vakker rødbrun farge og en farlig lett aroma - dette kombinert med bærsødmen tilsier at den burde komme med en advarsel. Kanskje navnet er nettopp advarselen? Skallen var heldigvis intakt morgenen derpå.
