Bottle. Pretty good. Rich raisiny maltyness, fairly sweet and all that, some nice saltyness in the finish, fairly soft mouthfeel, but quite full.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden bronze color, a touch of ruby. Light creamy white head. The aroma is faint as is the flavor, no mistaking the gravity though with a nice hop bite followed by the alcohol. Nice mix of aroma balanced between the malts. Definately feel the alcohol, but not necissarily taste it. The aroma really developes in this one as it goes on.

(Bottle, 0.65 l - 2012 Vintage, 20150821) The beer poured deep copper coloured and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had raisins, pine and sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, biscuits, sweetness, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and quite intensely bitter. A brew with good aroma and disappointigly thin taste.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light brown orange colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was musty. The mildly vinous mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering mild vinous hop aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of mildly vinous dough hops and malt. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

Brown in color clear with a thin head. Tons of malt and raisin malt aroma. Big barrel aging flavors and thick sweet malts. This was a tasty beer. Warms up well and was great for the cold day. Dried fruit flavors and finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle pours a lighter amber color with a finger of white head that leaves only a few spots of lacing behind. Aroma is dark fruits and caramel with some toasted grain notes and hops. Taste is a citrus hop bitterness with a dark fruity and grainy caramel malty sweetness. Medium to full bodied with generous carbonation for the style. A pretty well done barley wine, being aged for 2 years now probably helps smooth the rough edges I find on a lot of fresher barley wines. Good stuff!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Pours clear deep amber with a medium creamy off-white head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is pine, citrus and wood. Flavor is medium sweet malty, with caramel, pine and citrus notes. Light bitter finish. Very alcoholic throughout, including a strong warming finish. Nothing special.
