Bottle at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Deep orange colour. Dark fruit sweetness, caramel, malt, light hops and spice. Warming finish. Map reading and drinking don’t go well together, is what I’ve learnt..

Bottle. After opening I lost almost half of the bottle, it just exploded. Dark copper, white minimal head. In aroma fruits - peach, berries, caramel. In taste sweet with same notes, overly carbonated, unpleasant on the palate. Full bodied. In overall there are far better barley wines, this beer is not worth money I spent.

On special at the Delirium cafe for 6?; debatably past its prime.
It pours hazy opaque mahogany with light brown highlights, with huge yeast clumps in it; the head is caramel coloured and foamy. The aroma has notes of: caramel, burnt sugar, prunes, and a slight clove note. The taste is medium bitter with a little sweetness; there are notes of: coffee, rum, orange zest, cereal, sour wine, and crackers. The palate is medium bodied and has very light carbonation; has a very stark astringency, and medium finish. Overall, the beer was old, but cheap - still reasonably tasty.

Pours a slightly cloudy light brown beer with a medium beige head.
Smells of hop, malty and a bit spicy, some sweet malts, light touch of alcohol also.
Leaves a nice gentle bitter/sweet palate.
Mouth feel is big and a bit alcoholic.
Really nice barley wine!
