Nicely hopped beer with a solid backbone of sweetness that balances the high abv well. On the front, there is a nice hint of sour.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz bottle. Clear red - orange color. Thin, bubbly off-white head. A swirly layer retains on the surface. Some loose lace, not a bad-looking barleywine. Bigger body. Dry texture. Light, smooth carbonation. Earthy aroma. Caramel malt. Some dark fruit. Kind of a musty smell. Bigger spicy hop. Some metallic. Kind of dark fruity hops. Pretty aggressive spicy hop profile. Kind of a bitter bite, boozy in the finish, with a little sweet, but that sweetness is kind of cloying. I’m warming up to it as the beer itself warms up, though. It was odd-smelling and harsh at first, but as it warms and sits, it does get a little better. The first couple of sips are a bit shocking, it’s very different than your typical barley wine - very bitter and hoppy.. But I’m accepting that more now. Alright hoppy english-style barleywine to sip on. A little metallic twang to the flavor, big hops, but still makes a decent sipper. Was nice to enjoy with my easter lamb.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours deep golden and forms a thick beast of a foamy tan head that stays forever. Lacing is sticky and thick.
Nose is mostly malty sweetness with a hint of boozy raisins.
Taste is malty forward and pronounced astringent bitterness back that lingers long. A bit much for me. Like I'm sipping medicine.
Creamy and thick mouthfeel with residual booze warmth accompanying.
Not one I'd come back to, but not bad for a potent ale.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 mL bottle bought for exactly $7.99 in town. To snifter it pours a rusted light brown with a sudsy, off-yellow head about two fingers in length. Aromas of kilned clay, banana peppers, burnt plastic, chives, and leather. Yeast and noble hops, as well. Tastes of American malt, piny and vegetable hops, tin, and aloe vera. Decent.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Scent of caramel and sweet smoke. Beautiful pour, a deep amber color and completely coats the glass in lace. Taste is smokey sweet, a little too sweet for my taste. Interesting for a Barley Wine, not thin and oakey and boozy as most of them are, this one is more beery and malty.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear amber colour with a small beige head. Aroma of caramel, fruit, raisin. Flavour is dark fruit, caramel, but with a strong taste of alcohol. Might win on some more age, as it is the alcohol is a bit to dominant.
