Bottle. Hazy red brown with a small off-white head. Aromas are toffee and molasses with woody pine and some herbal aspects. Smoky with floral notes. Flavours are spicy pine with sweet toffee and chocolate. Grapefruit bitterness with peppery notes. Decent but could do with even more punch.

On tap at T’ Arendsnest, Amsterdam, 07-06-09 Pours a hazy, puddly brown colour with an off-white bubly head. Aroma is US hops and there is some honey sweetness also. Silky smooth in the mouth, floral honey flavours, tasty big beer with good hoppiness throughout that drinks far too easily and is a little dangerous in that respect but I enjoyed it.

Bottle.Wonderful malty aroma on opening. Malts then dominating making for a full bodied ale that is easy to drink considering its impressive strength. The ultimate winter warmer.

Yet another kind gift from our MesandSim. Murky cloudy brown with a beige head. Nice yeasty aroma with a fair few flavours in. Alcohol nicely hidden, nice sweetness and bitterness. Lovely.

Really good barley wine, the dry hoppy end and the aftertaste reminds me of lingonberries. Sweetness stays under control. My kind of american style barley wine, a winter warmer. My only complaint is that my bottle didn’t have that awesome eagle in it, it had a new, more "look what i made while drinking heavily and using powerpoint" kind of a flair to it.

Bottle, Winter Ales Festival, Manchester.
This was hugely enjoyable. Poured a hazy dark orange. Wionderful fresh and fruity grapefruit cascade hop aroma. Flavour also hop packed with bags of tropical fruit. Great body, pleasantly thick, with a subdued but nicely balanced caramel malt presence. Lip smackingly tasty. Would love to get my hands on some more of this.
