3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Barleywine shop, Copenhagen, Denmark. A black coloured pour with a medium beige head on top. Roastty, malty, dark fruit aroma. Tastes similar, roasty, malty, dark fruit, slight chocolate, almost port like. This bottle may be a few years old. Still pretty pleasant though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark pour with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, licorice, dark fruits, chocolate. Medium bodied. Flavor follows the aroma with light coffee and smoke. Was not wowed by this one and thought it to be fairly non-descript. Not bad by any means, but not memorable, either.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Snifter pour of deep dark blackness with khaki head. Nose is roasted malts with coffee and some dark chocolate with a sweet presence. Flavor is somewhat sweet, maybe caramel, roasted coffee and some smoothness. Not bad.

3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours oily black with quickly disappearing head. Earthy aroma and chocolate. Taste is a bitter bite with few redeeming qualities. A licorice finish. Palate is small bubbles that does not compliment.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from trade with umich03jm. Black pour with a moderate brown head that disappears. Aroma is very good, sweet, roasted malt, dark fruit, and alcohol. Taste is relatively light, leans a little toward sweet, with only subtle flavors of roasted grain. Little in the way of hop presence. Finish is fairly dry. Easy one to drink, but there is not much complexity in the flavor, so itís not as interesting to me as others.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep sable brown with khaki lacing. Roastiness dominates the aroma and forms the backbone of the flavor with a bit of dark fruit and chocolate. It finishes with a small but lingering bitterness. Not as intense as some stouts but very enjoyable.
