3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from BottleDog London and drunk at home. Said 9.9% abv on this bottle. Hazy dark brown. Sweet aroma even from just pouring it. Sweet fruity aroma, touch of wood, fruits are sweet strawberry jam, cherries and sweet plum. Sweet in mouth with more jam. Yes some red wine flavour from the barrels definitely. Some wood flavour on the finish. The more it opened up the more wood flavour came out which isn’t always my favourite flavour. Little bit of heat on the end. OK. but the barrel ageing is a bit too much for me.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Murky dark copper. Big grape and winter spices on the nose. Not sure I can smell enough from the beer but very nice so far. Taste continues with the same theme but is a bit too dry for my taste. Taste also has a different kind of fruitiness than the aroma, more like tangerine. Mouthfeel is average for this kind of beer. Decent effort.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark reddish brown, thin, pale, soapy head that dissolves fast. Classic barleywine appearance and aromas. Dark fruits, apples, grass, toffee, dark toast malt. But alongside it all, brandy. Warm wood and alcohol. Nice flavours. Medium-light sweetness, medium bitterness, medium tart finish as expected from barleywine. Quite a full body. I like this.
