4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
My Bottom Line:
This Barrel-Aged Barley Wine is the setting for caramelized prunes, controlled oxidation, wood, red wine and hazelnuts in a luxurious body.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-There is barely any head atop the misty dark red.
-Carbonation is very low, but it works with the deeply caramelized malts.
-This can probably age with the best of them.
-Had this next to some 7 to 11-year old Thomas Hardy’s and it wasn’t fazed at all.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, at Haand Festival -14. A hazy brown beer topped by a small, dense, beige head. The aroma is vinous, with dried fruits, brown sugar, prunes and some roasted malts. Some bitterness and a faint touch of dark chocolate in the flavor, as well as the dried fruits, blue plums and brown sugar found in the aroma. Vinous, full-bodied, warming and nicely carbonated. Lasting finish. Overall, too warming, but sure a nice one. 140523
