4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy dark copper with a big off white head, much bigger and more stable than I would have expected on a barley wine. Aroma of dried fruit, dark caramel, and raisins. Taste full and malty, dried fruit, sugar, raisins, caramel, and just a hint if dryness to balance it out. It is everything you should expect from a barley wine: full, rich, malty, but not heavy of cloying. Damn good (and I don’t even like the style...)

This was a damn good beer. If you can find it, you should try it. Great taste, nice finish and worth every penny.

Decent barley wine. Nice taste of malt and dark dried fruits. Not very special though, expected more from it.

I love this barley wine. It pours a bright, copper color, the little bit of foam fades quickly, and there’s no lace. The aroma is herbs and sweet tones, apples, molasses. The flavor is not overly sweet. It’s very malty, very boozy, but not extremely hot. In fact, the 11+% ABV is buried under the richness. Not as viscous as some barley wines can be, which is a plus from my perspective.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
0,33L bottle. Pours murky hazy copper with off white head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is very sweet, caramel, fruits, and herbal. Taste is fruity, caramel, malt, watery, noticeable alcohol, and spicy. Finish is mild hoppy bitter. Overall: very nice brew; feels a little bit like Belgian.

Poured a deep caramel color with aromas of dark fruit, caramel, some light wood, and some bread. Flavors were the same, decent malt backbone and a decent amount of sweetness.
