4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2005 This is a damn tasty brew. Pours a deep amber with an off-white head. Aromas of cognac and red wine, roasted mlts, amd a little orange peel with spice. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with a flavors that sticks around on the palate for just the right amount of time. Flavors of brown sugar, a little cherry, a hint toward dates, but just a little, with some amazing tobacco notes and a little vanilla and a great smokey flavor. Very smokey. A decent bitter finish to a great brew.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
An unclear red beer with a fine beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of roasted bread and yeast. The flavor is sweet and very hoppy both with aroma hops and bitter hops - which gives it a rather bitter finish. A great beer.

Honey and toffee in the aroma. Malty and very sweet flavour with a hoppy, bitter and dry finish.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2005 Re-Rate The aroma is almost three dimensional - astounding. I’m still not sold on the earthines of the flavor. Slowly loses character from the nose to the palate.
Pours almost chunky with a ruby and caramel color. High malt, high hop, fairly peaty in aroma and taste. Astringent aftertaste that the hops don’t quite overcome.

Pours a deep amber beer with a foamy off-white head. Delicious and sweet aroma of toffee, caramel and a fine bite of alcohol. Full-bodied flavor. Sweet roasted malt with lots of spices, raisins and prunes. Hoppy bitter finish. A very complex barley wine. Thanks to Denton (Jokes) for this one!

This is a really good Barley Wine. Sweet, caramel malt, and earthy flavors. Finishes creamy, rich, and smooth.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2008 [bottle] Dark and hazy amber color with a very small white head. Has a slightly bitter and citrusy aroma with a slight hint of grapefruit. Caramelly taste mixed with a hoppy bite that leads to a rich and creamy finish that goes down smooth and warm. Very wonderful bitter malty aftertaste.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep amber in color, almost no head. Aroma is nutty with citrus hops and caramel. This beer is like molasses, spicy hops and alcohol in a menage a trois. A winter warmer for sure.

What a beer, poured hard and got a nice fluffy white head. Fruity aroma with a hoppy smell. A Caramel, hop taste with a malty finish, sweet. Easy to drink with a small alcohol burn at the end of the glass. Don't drink too fast!

I was surprised to to note that this didn't have any sediment at all, whereas Batch 6000 had a ton. Fruity (just like Bell's consecrator doppelbock)and more than a bit of alcohol. Too bad I probably won't ever have this again, considering the sixer was $15!
