Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a layer of creamy head. Aroma of hops (like most Stone), malts, and wood. Taste of malt, caramel, and a light alcohol buzz.

Botella de 65 cl de el lúpulo, tomada en agosto de 2011. Edicion 2010. color rojizo con sabores y aromas maltosos y dulces acabando con cierto amargo. Cuerpo intenso con 11.1 vol que se notan de principio a fin. Bastante buena, buenos comienzos en el estilo barley wine americano.

Keg at Brewdog Shepard’s bush. Aroma is heavy cinnamon nutmeg spices with toast and sweet unrefined sugars and earthy notes. Clouded caramel brown with a lasting thin cream head. Flavour is sweet brown sugars, cinnamon spices. Some earth. Hides the alcohol pretty well. Palate is viscous. Sweet and lowish carbonation. A bit sweet for me.

Aroma is caramel, pours a dark brown with small head of white. Taste is caramel and some fruit, bready and very malty. It does have a hop presence, even though there is some sweetness. Very drinkable.

Sweet, intense caramel aroma, spices, fruits, hopps all together makes nice ballance. Oily, sticky mouthfeel, nice carbonation level. Too sweet for my time, but I liked the quality of this brew.

Huge caramel on nose, same caramel in taste with surprisingly intense piney hop kick, intense maltiness in background but doesnt cover too pushy hops, bit bready, dried fruits. Hop syrup in two words. Well.. its interesting and enjoyable brew, but feels bit unbalanced for me as bitterness overcomes sweetness way too much
