@zebf 2014 - Amber brown colour. Aroma and flavour are very malty and quite sweet too. Some dryness in the finish. It’s thick and viscous.

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.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours with no real head. Dark copper color. Smell and taste like dark fruit and grapes. Big on the grapes.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with an almost non-existent off-white head. The nose is caramel, sultanas, dates, dried apricot, hard water notes, and light cherry. The taste leads off with dried fruit, alcohol, caramel, and almond that heads into marzipan, light dried cherry, woody notes, dark bread, and light bitterness. Surprisingly thin on taste for a barley wine. Not bad, but it just seems to be missing the usual "oomph" you find in barley wines.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark ruby with a quickly dissipating 1 finger off white head. Aroma is cherry and almond with a hint of grape. Taste is grape, date, fig and a touch of toffee. Slight roast note on the finish. Medium sticky mouthfeel with light carbonation. Needs something more to balance the sweetness.

Sweet aromas of caramel, malt and toffee. Taste follows nose. Malt forward englishbarley wine. Very nice. Similar to old foghorn but not as sweet.

Sample at the brewery. Pours caramel colored brown with thick head and nice lacing. Malty, brown sugar on the nose. Full bodied. Heavy alcohol flavors alongside some surprising sweet notes--malts, caramel, earthy oak. Pretty cool.
