275ml bottle (SOPP2015, Helsinki) vintage 2010
Not that expressive an aroma, just some sweet caramelly malts an a bit of the sherry I expect with age. Beautiful barleywine taste - raisins come over well. Covers 11% very well. Has aged beautifully. Classic Thomas-Hardy-like profile. Sweet, soft and mellow. A great sipper.

Vintage 2010@ SOPP. Dark brown beer with a minimal dark beige head. Ripe fruits on the nose. Smooth and soft texture. Some sherry and cherry notes. A litlle creamy. Strong and soft bitterness at the same time. A lovely beer.
Earlier Rating: 5/22/2013 Total Score: 4
Cola black barley wine with a khaki coloured small head. Sweet ripe fruits in the aroma. Medium to full body. Lovely sweet flavors of cherries and sherry in the beginning and finishing with a balanced and moderate blood orange bitterness. This is excellent.

Bottle, thnx to Benzai. Pours a deep dark brown beer with a small white head on top. Aroma has loads of sherry, touches of chocolate, malts and vanilla. As it warms up, the aroma becomes more complex. Flavor is very sweet with big sherry influences again in there. Boozy touches definitely present, but not disturbing. Loads of sweet malts at the base of this beer. Great balance, great warmer for the winter. Good stuff for sure.

12oz bottle I got via a Secret Santa a while back. Pours a murky, deep caramel brown with plenty of sticky, creamy, lacing, slightly off white head. Nose has loads of sherry, wood pulp, booze, loads of raisin, very leathery, malt is still there. Surprising level of caramel in the flavor, butterscotch, raisin, orange, some grappa, a little cream soda, candy, a little dried strawberry, prosciutto with melon, some baked apple. Finishes oily but very, very smooth. Cannot believe how easy this was to drink. A real treat.

Trockener, oxidiert wirkender Beginn mit malzigen und heftigen Noten, die die Lagerung erkennen lassen aber nicht überzeugen. Wenig fruchtig unrund. 8/7/8/6/10/7
