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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
color is burnt copper. Aroma is thick of sweet dark fruits. Its boozy, and gets more intense as it warms. flavor is sweet, bread and dark fruits. sticky mouth feel. The alcohol is not hidden in the malty sweetness. alcohol gets real intense in the finish. Good barley wine. They advertise this as not overly sweet but it is. That is my only knock on it.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap, another overly sweet BW that is a struggle to finish and reminds me why I donít like this style. Although, there are some very good BWs; this isnít one of them. This really suffers from lack of hop aroma, flavor, and bitterness. Unbalanced and boring.
