A barleywine…really? Bland boring and lifeless. However, it does have a decent nose of malt molasses and alcohol.Seriously undercarbonated

Very dark brown. This beer is lovely. Sweet chocolate caramel malt. It was the best beer at the recent beer festival at the Lytton Arms in Knebworth.
One word of warning. Do not by this or any beer in a carry out at the Tring brewery. I bought three beers in the 3 Ltr carry outs, and all three were flat, with no head, and very watery. £30 down the drain. Will never go to the brewery again to by the beers. Bottles the way to go.

From the bottle, pours a very dark mahogany color with a tan head. The smell is caramel, toasted malt, rich fruit. The taste is as it smells unending fruity and crisply dry. Medium in body with average carbonation.

Many thanks to ThirstyBird for sharing. The beer starts smooth and malty. Nice caramel there with chocolate hints. Easy to drink with a nice caramel body. Smooth, rich and round with not too much bitterness. Nice smooth chocolate aftertaste! Great!

Cask, half pint at Lion and Key in Hull. Crocheted lacing from low beige head. Rosewood coloured body. Dark malty smell, caramel and bread. The taste profile follows suit with dark caramel, dark dough and with moments of dried fruits towards the ending. Well bodied. Fits the season very well (shared with Finn, 25.11.2015).
