2016 712/873 .... Deep Amber pour with a thin soapy white head and lots of lacing .... Aroma of soapy and lemony hops with citrusy notes and a quick switchover to true barleywine qualities of nougat, caramel and roasted malts smells sweet interesting and better than the regular offering .... Taste is of lemony, orange, soapy hops and grapefruit notes with again a switchover to nougat, caramel and roasted malt ..... Deep and complex with oak and light bourbon and vanilla notes .... Quite a bit sugary ... Finishes sweet with a light bitterness and lingering malt and vanilla .... Interesting and better than the regular

Bottle. Boozey aromas. The dark fruit and caramel malts are destroyed by the bitterness from the hops. Oak and bourbon backbeats. Average body and mouthfeel.

Bottle: #253/454: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Small creamy head. Cloudy dark ruby body.
Aromas of oak, lot of orange/yellow fruit, sweets, hint of typical Barley Wine notes, this smells amazing!
Flavour is freaking awesome: fruit, wood, oak, light chalky, sweet, some marzipan, light bourbon tint, some bitters, vanilla, amazingly flavour!
Great complexity: lot of wood and fruit with a subtle sweetness.

yet another in a series of forgotten reviews on my eyefone. Ferris was there, looking very molestable as usual. This was back in his thinner days - Aug 2013. " Sweet orange, bourbon, brown sugar, lime nose. T: loads of malts, light brown sugar, weak molasses, orange and lightly acidic. Smooth oh so smooth. Retardedly good."
