3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from 2011. Mahogany with a nice beige head. Alcohol, some prunes, some peat, resin, fair amount of sweet caramel malts. Mild+ carbonation, moderate+ body, sweet, slightly sticky, boozy, not sure my palate enjoys the strengths of each individual flavour as they do not seem to meld well together, somewhat dry finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
2010 12-oz. bottle. Very boozy, malty aroma with caramel, toffee, and a heavy wood resin note. Pours a muddy dark color with chunky lacing. Sharp caramel malt flavor with an almost overpowering woody, grainy tone, and a touch of orange. Thick body with a very syrupy texture and an astringent finish. Even though it’s close to 3 years old, the brew still tastes quite green; perhaps even more time in the cellar is needed.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy dark golden amber with a lingering two-finger head that finally reduces to a head cover; thick streaks of lace. Sweet caramel malt opens this, followed by fruitcake fruit through the palate that finishes with a palatable warming alcohol that also provides a balancing edge. A very good Barleywine. Highly recommended.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle. This must be infected. The nose is funky and it tastes of chemicals and medicinal. Too bad, I was looking forward to this.

Strange beer. The fruit flavors in this combine in a really odd way. Not bad tho

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber with a thick off white head. Aroma is light pine hops with a very slight fruity element. Flavor is a little sweet with a tiny bit of hops in the finish. A little resinous in the finish though the body is a bit thin. Aftertaste is bittersweet. Not bad, but it could be a bit more impressive.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours copper with a dissipating off-white head. Nose is mango, pine and a touch of caramel. Taste is a variety of tropical fruits, namely mango and pineapple with a strong caramel backbone. Palate is full and smooth. Bit of alcohol bite throughout. Nice beer.
