4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
copper orange pour - aroma of pine and grapefruit - rich brown sugary malt flavor followed by orange/grapefruit and all of these flavors linger. The alcohol is evident but everything is at an almost perfect mix.

It pours a dark amber with a white head that produces a fair amount of lacing. It has aromas of dried fruits, plums, caramel, and bread malts. The initial flavors are a heavy plum flavor. There are also elements of vanilla, sweet dried fruits, and a not so bitter effect on the palate. There is a bit of higher than normal carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber, vintage is 2012. Hazy brown with thin off white head. Strong alcohol notes, fruity, warming. The maltiness is pleasant, not overly sweet or sugary. There is still plenty of hop character to keep this interesting. I find this to be a nice barley wine.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the First St. Alehouse. It pours a dark reddish orange color with an off white head. The aroma is sweet with mixed berries, caramel and a little brown sugar. The flavor is the same with lots of fruity berries, a little mango, papaya, brown sugar and caramel. Sweet and fruity. Pretty thick on the palate as well. Kinda simple, but not bad.

65 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori. Bottled on 18.07.2012.
Pours clear copper color with a medium sized head. Pine needles and caramel on the nose, sweetish fruits, resin, the hops have vanished almond completely. Sweet orange and caramel malts on the flavor, some resinous hops, quite faint on the flavor too. Very smooth and quaffable, alcohol dangerously well hidden. Tasty.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Old Embalmer ’12, bottled 7/19/12. I’m tellin’ you, this Total Wine carries some old sh*t. I just bought it last week. But for once, an old beer on the shelf is a good thing. This has aged gracefully and is unbelievably smooth. This goes down devilishly delicious, without a high-alcohol burn, instead drinking like a finessed nightcap. (#5949, 3/27/2015)
