3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Amber color, thick white head and lacing. Lightly hopped aroma, caramel, coconut, pecans, maybe some honey as well, hints of alcohol. Hits very hoppy and bitter at first, giving way to a hugely sweet body. Basically this is a fruity barleywine, lighter on the palate and quicker in the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bouteille:Clear, amber to deep amber coloured with a small and stable off-white head, cacao, molasses, dried fruits and caramel in the sweet nose, some port-vinous edges detectable; solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium to full bodied; sweet vinous-raisiny finish with some (shy) balancing hops underneath. Pleasant and well rounded thirst-quencher…

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 65 cl. Pours an almost clear amber with a small, off-white head. Thick caramel aroma combined with quite some booze. Rich body, again caramel - and nothing much more really. Lots of hops, lots of booze and not exactly easy drinking! 141113

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Amber/Burnt Orange Hue, Passes Some Light, White Head Ring, Some Lacing
S: Toasted Wheat, Jack Daniels, Pineapple, Boozy
T: Jack Daniels, Wheat, Honey
M: Decent Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Semi Boozy, Mildly Drying
Overall, the nose and taste reminded me a Jack Daniels barrel aged beer...too much booze and not enough flavor.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to koelschtrinker! 2009 bottle. Pours a hazy reddish brown color with a tiny head. Tastes of big toffee and caramel, alcohol, some sharp fruitiness on the end. Body is medium plus and lightly carbonated. A very sweet, rich brew that has a bit of alcohol burn even with 4 years on it.

A nice soft orange colored pour. Big white head that drops fast. Some lacing left behind. A nice aroma of bread and hops. Taste is a soft sweetness with some notes of fresh baked bread and sugar. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smell of red berries, oak, cognac, yeast. Cloudy red-amber colour, tiny beige head. Aroma of alcohol, raisins, oak, earth. Heavily sweet. Extremely flat carbon. Not much wheatiness getting through. This one could benefit from lower alcohol strength.
