3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of apples, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with a thick note of caramel, as well as a light note of wood, leading to a finish that leaves a slight alcohol burn in the throat. A boring Barley Wine.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle... Clear orange ale with a small, fizzy, off-white head. The nose is similar to that of a Belgian abbey or tripel. It’s malty (caramel), but also chock full of fruity and spicy esters and phenols; pear, banana, peach, mild clove, and sherry. The flavor is mega-sweet; fruity, spicy and vinous. No semblance of balance. Full-bodied and sticky with lively carbonation. Sweet, fruity finish. Odd, but good barley wine. Thanks go out to WBC for the trade which landed me this bottle!

Aromas of dark fruits (black cherries, raisins, and plums), caramel, toffee, trace of chocolate, and a little vinous. Tastes of raisins, plums, caramel, toffee, and brown sugar. Definitely malty sweet. Light alcohol in the finish, but overall well hidden.
