2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear copper-golden with a creamy, beige head. Faint aroma of light toffee with the nasal sensation of sniffing a sliced orange. Smooth, with average thickness for the style with a little bit of burn in the rear of the palate. Some toasted, sweet malt becomes overwhelmed with orange citrus flavor and lemon zest bitterness. A bit out of balance and too hop heavy for the style.

2013 Bottle. Poured 4/11/14. Pours a deep translucent amber with a thin but fluffy white head. Aroma is dark fruit, wood, earth, honey, some grass and a touch of citrus hops. Taste is surprisingly bright and elevated; citrus hops, wood, caramel,, dark fruit, burnt sugar; finish is bittersweet fruit peel. Nice lacing. Full bodied. Medium-low carbonation. A really nice barley wine from a great brewery.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Inte jätte övertygad. Lite svag aroma, sötma. Smaken var inte heller så bra. Lite tunn i kroppen för 10%, låg kolsyra.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Bottle from Sprout’s: Poured a gloomy glowing brown hued ale with a creamy textured cap head that left behind beautiful foam lacing upon the glass. Aroma smells subtle with fruity fragrances and hints of a perfectly balanced barleywine, I always prefer fresh beer over aged. I can’t explain it, but I just enjoy it more when its fresh especially with American made barlewines. The drink delivers a lethal dosage of boozy alcohol taste and mouth feel while a harmonious balance of perfectly mashed malts and the right hop profile that allows this beer to drink smooth and easy. Delicate flavor is paired with a soft smooth palate. High scores all around the board. I love when I can find beers near perfect.
