3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear black with a tiny bit of tan head that dissipates quickly. Smell is quite sweet with roasted malts. Palate is fairly thick and have weak carbonation. Taste is a bit sweet at first which gives way to a still sweet aftertaste that goes somewhere really weird and sort of sour. Not great.

Dark brown pour, small off white head. Great bready, caramel sweet, boozy malts. Subtle pine, pungent hops. This is a quite nice english style barley wine. Finish is a medium bitter, that lingers.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Single bottle from the LCBO. Pours a deep ruby colour with a huge creamy beige head, with great retention and beautiful lacing. Aromas of fruits (plum, raisins, figs), sweet and roasted malts, with notes of chocolate and molasses. Smooth silky mouthfeel with absolutely no burning. The first thing that grabs me from the taste, is the hop. It has notes of rust (which I am not fond of). After sitting a while, it does slightly disappear, but the hop gives this one much bitterness, which results in a slightly dry finish. Notes of cherries, plums, wood, burnt malt, whiskey, caramel and bread. A very nice barleywine that goes down too easily. Just wish that rusty hop would not be in there.
