3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Chestnut, clear; no real head. Cherry-like alcohol nose, alcohol and fusels. Very malty taste with higher alcohols. Surprisingly rich & aromatic character for some moments. Aggressive alcoholic & burning malts MF, slick, viscous nearly. This is all fireworks: it sparkles, thunders and shouts, but then it’s a black empty sky again. The palate is good enough, but it wants to impose too much.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2004 Vintage: Poured a hazy brown with a ruby hue and small cream colored head. Big malty aroma is sweet with aged notes as well as dark fruit that is moslty raisin. The aroma is thick. Sweet malty and lightly fruity flavor. Some hops start to show their face at the end and then gives some bitterness on the finish. nice warming in the chest. Can taste some alcohol but there is enough malt to counter act it. Not the best bw I’ve had but not nearly as bad as the scores show. Flavor is not complex but is fine.

Bottle (2005) Courtesy of Styles. Aroma has lots of apricot, peach, toffee, and alcohol. Pours a reddish-orange with a touch of haze and an insignificant off-white head. Citrusy caramel up front with a grain y hop finish. Light alcohol flavor and warmth. Grainy flavors are really out of place.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
2005 Vintage - This was a somewhat unbalanced, overly done barleywine. Aroma is sweet and hoppy, with a flavor that is full of candi and butterered bread. Slightly smoky, with a vinous, wood aged type of flavor too. I just could not get into this one.
