"Lots of whiskey on the nose, with some wood and sweet malts coming through as well. A little hot, but not to a fault. Medium bodied (especially for such a strong brew) with ample carbonation. Flavor is whiskey dominant as well, vanilla, oak, semi-sweet, quite a bit warming. Definitely a solid sipper. Thank you Hannah."

Thank you very much for this one Jason!
Pours a murky brown color with a fiery, rubin-red hint in it, while its head diminishes fast.
Has a boozy, sweet nose of caramel, molasse and a sharp alcohol bite among oaken earthiness.
Tastes of scorched caramel, earthy malts, accompanied by a gentle pleasant oakiness. A spicy, burning boozines gets calmed by sweet malts and hints of vanilla, while the wooden oak notes settle down on the back of the palate. Has a high, sparkling carbonation, which pushes malt sweetness on a detectable level during the finish, with warming, wooden alcoholic hints in the background.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 75 cl. Pours a murky opaque dark brown with a beige head. Very spicy aroma, loads of vanilla and licorice allsorts - and booze. Rich body, heavy caramel and chocolate with a distinct sweet impact of the whiskey barrels. Very little Brown Ale here, if there ever was any roastiness it’s definitely gone now. But a very delicious border Barley Wine. A little too boozy throughout though. 040914
