3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
14th July 2008. Hazy dark amber beer. Low carbonation. Unusual barleywine. Starts like a cheap super strong lager - malty but also bready with a pinch of caraway. There is a brief pineapple sweet note in the middle before giving way to a spirity finish. However the spirity finish is not the usual brandy/porty tones that are often found but has more of vodka/gin feel to the bitterish finish. Unusual but very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 22oxz. An almost clear one, copper in color and with a minimal sized off-white to beige head. Caramel, dried fruits, alcohol and some fluor on the nose, rather hoppy, still balanced. Flavorwise it’s pretty much the same, alcohol, caramel, dried fruits and sweetness. Warming and full-bodied. The finish has a nice bitterness, some notes of fluor and a certain malty sweetness. A delicious beer indeed, although a bit sweet. 110722

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle and tap at The Rake Stone Tasting 09. Reddish amber in colour. Hoppy sweetish aroma.. Good sweetness in mouth, so kinda good balanced hop on end. But hops balance the sweetness well. Some heat from the alcohol. Better on tap, smoother even though heat is there. But hops and biscuit malt work really well. Lovely.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden bronze, thin head. Chewy, resiny aroma with oatmeal cookie dough. Deep resiny hop palate with that tongue-scraping bitterness that extends past the taste threshold. Rich malts in the finish with alcoholic warmth. I’ve had too many beers like this.
