3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample from 75 cl. bottle. Dark ruby colour with a golden tint and a small, lightly tanned head. Some floaters. Sweet aroma with rich caramel malts, dark, dried fruits, oak and a vinous note. Taste is sweet. Full body with an oily feel and a soft carbonation. Finishes sweet with toasted malts and overripe fruits. Excellent BW.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared at ChrisO’s pre-GBBF 2013 Shindig. Cloudy chestnut brown colour, thin white head. Nose is damp, musty, not right. Taste is a lot better. Aged wood, barbecued meat, smokey maple wood, caramel. Big bold flavours and pungent, a little too potent for my palate. Dodgy smell.

Bottle. Chestnut brown with a beige head. Caramel, wood, smoke, spicy, light chocolate, warming alcohol, light fruity hop notes. Oily/sticky texture, sweet but also roasted bitterness, full body. Different, but I like it.

750 bottle. Pours dark hazy brown with a small tan head. Nose is malty, caramel, sweet and sugary. Taste starts off malty and chewy, with a lingering sweetness on the end. Thick and chewy with a full flavor profile. This is a big beer that’s meant to be shared.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted from bottle into a snifter. It poured a dark, hazy, brown colour with beige foam, somewhat lasting with a little lace. Rich toffee and sticky candy sweetness. Hints of marshmallows, vanilla cream soda, caramel, apricots, hard cider. Heavy body, almost cloying mouthfeel, low-medium carbonation, very boozy. Big and bold, but a bit of a malt-bomb. Perhaps it would be more harmonious and complex with some age.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Dark brown with an off white head. Lots of dark fruit in the nose with a hint of chocolate. Taste is the same and packs a strong alcoholic punch. Palate is round and full. This is a great winter warmer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle provided by Ralf the angry German. Prost! A medium bodied Barleywine that is brown and a bit murky in the glass. Bigger plum finish than the rest of the big malt body.
