3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark reddish amber with a nice head.
Lots of fruity american hops on the nose with lots of sugary caramel and some minty peppery notes with a bit of alcohol sting. Nice.
Taste is straight up the american barley wine alley with tropical fruit, sugary toffee and also here some peppery mint and a dash of alcohol.
Bigger body with soft carbonation.
One of the better from Jessica.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2012 Bottle. Slightly hazy copper colour with a very small head. Sweet and light fruity aroma. The flavour was more hoppy than expected and made this barley wine a nice touch. Not that strong eiher, one of the best barley wine I have tasted.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange amber with a small off-white head with big bubbles. The nose is dominated by the malty base with cereal, bread. But there is also a fair amount of fruity hops and dried fruits as well. Quite sweet but bitterness is balancing it nicely. Quite light for a barley wine, but still nicely done.
