16.9 oz bottle. Pour is a clear medium amber with an off white head and some lacing. Smell is caramel and malt with some molasses and booze. Taste is very sweet, lots of sugar, some caramel molasses and a booze kick. Kind of a one note beer for a barley wine.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle 33 cl. Amber color with minimum fast vanishing white head. Sweet pungent malts, rye bread, caramel, boozy, toast. Really strong pungent sweet malts and too boozy flavors. Needs something to tame down the boozy one dimensional flavor and give it more depth to be better and more drinkable.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Coppery clear. Sweet malty nose, caramels, boozyness. Overripe apples, spices. Full body. Icky. Boozy malts, esters. Canít say I enjoy this. Boozy with thin flavours. Seems like a cheap over-abvíd malt liquor.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear body with a beautiful light amber color. Nose has loads of caramel, molasses and grapes. Taste is quite sweet with a slightly dry alcoholic finish that warms you up. Carbonation is mild and the palate very rich and full. Overall this is quite nice, although somewhat one-dimensional.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Amber, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate to full, malty and sweetish aroma, caramel and some dark fruitiness - berry fruitiness, some alcohol. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and some dark fruitiness, some alcohol. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, light caramel and light fruitiness, some alcohol. Sweetish and fruity BW - too much alcohol considering the body.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2014 33 cl, bottled. Pours clear orangeish red with a small white head. Aroma: Malt, caramel, toffee. Small lactic component. Taste: Sweet, some bitterness and salt. Some alcohol. Palate: Light-medium body, thin barley wine. Still I donít like it, but itís better than I remembered. (no score changes). 17.11.2014.
11.2 fl oz (33 cl). Pours clear ruby with a decent white head. Aroma: Sour milk, malt.. Hints of bread and strawberry and berries. Taste: Medium sweet, mild bitterness, some more in the end. Palate: Near medium body, a bit thin for a barley wine. Iron tones. Meh, to be honest quite criminally bad barley wine. Alcohol is well hidden, tho. 12.11.2013.
