Bottle. Deep amber color. Confit peach, pineapple, citrus and melon in the aroma. Malty sweet perfumed, alcoholic flavor with confot fruit. Lovely aroma, big flavors, a bit too pronounced in fact. Massive hops.

Oh man! This is so intense. Great hoppy aroma (citrus, tropical fruit and resin) mixed with some caramel nailed it! Awesome taste of sweet, barley wine mixed with some hops. 5 out of 5. No doubt at all.

Aroma: caramel, citrus, spice, butter; Appearance: clear orange, vanishing frothy head; Taste: intense sweetness, slight sourness; Palate: full body, oily texture, long finish, soft carbonation Kudos for fudgy, sticky mouthfeel and almost unnoticeable alcohol. Unfortunately the immense sweetness is killing me softly.

OK, a combination of my favorite bottle format (wide ass mouthed green thick glass 37.5cl bottle) and one of my favorite breweries brewing my favorite style. Yes! Heaven. It pours with a nearly clear deep copper body that has amber hues and supports a full tan head. The aroma offers up sweet tangerine, pineapple, spicy yeast and then a sizeable spicy woodiness. The taste starts thick and bold with malts, residual sugars, wide citrus notes, some mango and then a bit of a woody yeasty sort of note. To midway a mild malt and nutty sensation is just noticed underneath all of the sweetened citrus hops that dominate this brew. As it warms a pleasing spicy dank kind of garlic note rises up to be heard alongside the thick malt sweetened citrusy notes that are going on. Solid hoppy barleywine.

Hanoi (456) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2014
Nose is sweet, pear drops candy sugar, yeast, some goesbury hint of citrus and hops with thick caramel. Taste is candy sweet leading, pear drops, sweet malts, marmalade, sugar, slight orange peel tang in the finish. Mouthfeel is thick. Its a nice drink, but lacks complexity and the sweetness too overpowering to be great.
