3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Poured clear medium-deep brown with a nice sheen to it. The aroma picked up warm, aged molasses and caramel joined by spruce, smoked wood, and some other interesting spices I couldn’t place.. brighter on the back of the nose form the spices.. weird, but I enjoyed it. The flavor found the same molasses and caramel, plus a pinch of honey.. broken-down earthy hoppage plus some of the spices and smoke from the nose around.. fairly grainy finish carried through warm sugars and spices. Medium-bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. a bit syrupy, but it was grainy on the back.. OK feel and flow.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Är detta månne ett ojämt öl? Min flaska var närmast perfekt. Fantastiska dofter av russin och körsbär. Lätt syrlig, fruktig, maltig, söt och stark. Drar något åt portvinshållet, men i så fall en julig variant. Ett perfekt julöl till vinterbrasan.
Yngre öl lite för söta med starka drag av sötlakrits. Ska lagras!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep dark amber with a tan creamy head. Aromas of heavy port, chocolate, raisins, plums, dates, vanilla, and even oak and earth. This has a very nice aroma to it and is full of complexity. Really, the chocolate and vanilla are forefront in the nose with this. Rich bourbon flavors are noticeable with chocolate, earth, vanilla, thin plums and raisins also notable. The finish is slightly bitter from the hops.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 ml bottle into snifter. Pours cloudy dark red-brown color with a dense 2 finger light tan head with good retention that reduces to a thin lacing cap that lasts for a majority of the glass. Almost no lacing on the glass. Aromas of molasses, caramel, roasted malt, toffee, raisins, oak, and booze. Some interesting aromas that are fairly strong and very malty. Taste of molasses, raisins, caramel, roasted malt, oak. Near the finish the caramel and molasses flavors get stronger, and then it leads to a fairly dry finish, but some light malty flavors linger for a short period. It also has some very light alcohol taste with a bit of warming after the finish as well. Pretty well hidden on alcohol. Medium-full body and fairly light carbonation. Very smooth and highly creamy mouthfeel. Overall, this is a delicious barley wine with some great flavor combination, and it is very enjoyable to drink as well.
