3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazy red beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has strong notes of alcohol and berries, while the flavor is very sweet with strong notes of caramel and malt. Not that complex, but still nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle 65 cl) A beautiful, clear, reddish beer with a creamy, off-white head. Vinous, raisiny nose. Full-bodied, notes of caramel and LOTS of raisins in the flavour. And then some rather unusual - for its style - ashy edge. Typical - for a Barleywine - somewhat muddy hop profile. Still pleasant. 220406

Bottle from CoOp Bellingham
Beautiful amber color with copper hue, small creamy head. Moderate malt and caramel aroma, light fudge. Good malt flavor, some caramel, quite sweet but not syrupy; strong bitterness with nice hop resins and light fruitiness. Bold Barley Wine. The final is expectedly long and powerful.
Straightforward American Barley Wine, very good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky brown with a caramel head. Malty aroma with figs, plums and canned peaches. Sweet, plummy, burnt raisin flavours. Richly malty, but only slightly chewy. A little tart and vinous in the back - don’t bother aging this one as it may be turning in early.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours copper with a very frothy beige head. Sweet malt aroma. Medium plus body with very mild carbonation. Very little heat. It’s sweet, but there’s some bitter to help balance. Sweet wins though. It is a very tasty ale, and can be quaffed rather than sipped. The aroma becomes strongly caramel, and it is incredibly tasty.

Appearance: clear dark ruby red, wispy beige head,
Aroma: rich sweet fruity aroma with a brown sugar sweetness, lots of dark fruit enhanced by dark caramel,
Flavor: rich malt flavor, dark caramel sweetness, lots of fruity character, a bit too much earthy bitterness adds balance but restrains the ripe fruit, light bitter finish, with time the bitterness starts to fade a bit letting the caramel sweetness grow and bring out more of the fruityness,
Overall: should be great with just a year or two of age,
Aroma: 8/10; Appearance: 7/10; Flavor: 7/10; Palate: 6/10; Overall: 15/20
