Pours hazy reddish amber with little head.
Intense aromas of honey, caramel, citrus drop, orange candy, ripe plantain, dandelion...
Taste begins sweet and powerful. Full body. Good sourness that matches the sheer bitter flavour. Medium finish. Very good.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2015 Caramelized malt, candied sugar and hop aroma. Low carbonation. Taste is full flavored and finishes sweet. Hops balance the sweetness nicely. Alcohol is fairly hidden. Could be a dangerous one at 11% ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle into tulip. Light chill beyond cellar temp. Aroma is fruity and maybe some light caramel malts. Very dark amber or almost ruby in color half inch light tan head disappears very quickly. No lacing at all. Beer is almost flat looking. Taste is lightly sweet and light to medium bitter. Malty notes of dried fruit such as raisins. Medium bodied with a thin texture. Soft to flat carbonation. Long warm and fruity finish. Not surprisingly, considering it is 11.1%, the taste of alcohol is clearly present. Over all good beer. Good sipper for a cold night or raw day. Im still getting to know more about the style personally. I will probably leave the other three of the four pack cellar for a while.

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.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
