Pours a murky ruby with small head and moderate lacing. Aroma of stone fruit, hint of booze, hint of citrus. Moderately sweet taste with some alcohol burn. Candy sugar. Full bodied with soft but abundant carbonation. Long finish.

Bottle from Whole Foods. Sweet & boozy. Some hints of fruitiness. Not what i expected, though this was my very first Barley Wine. Am sure there are better ones than this...at least i hope so. Would also prefer trying a darker one.

Careful with the abv! It is a barley wine. Updating from long ago. Enjoyed both on tap and in bottle. Thick and heavy, don’t have a full bottle alone as you won’t be able to finish it.

The aroma of dark fruit and alcohol. The taste is of alcohol, bitter and slightly fruity. Heavy bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long while. No beer that I like, unfortunately. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Pours a caramel brown color with no foam head. Aroma is sugary sweet, honey, caramel, and dark fruits. Flavor is similar, with a pleasing sweetness. No alcohol bite or burn. Feels lighter than its ABV. Decent.

Nothing special appearance wise. Average color with minimal head and no retention or lacing. Slightly oily mouth feel that coats mouth. Flavor is smooth and filled with sweet flavor. Fruity and malty with some boozey flavor without any alcohol burn. Ok drink, nothing special.

poured into snifter a very slightly hazed bottle brown with thin just off white head and some lace. Aroma is figs, alcohol, and caramel. It’s fruity and candy sweet. Taste is sweetined figs, with a gaining grain taste as you swallow. Finish is slightly alcohol and warming. Like drinking a Fig Newton. Really like this one.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma of figs, dates, prunes and alcohol. Sweet flavour of dark fruit along with burned caramel and a very decent bitterness. Alcohol dads warmth and it stays on the tongue and in the throat for a long time. Powerful in flavour without going over the top.
