Bottled, 0.33l. Clear ruby brown color and small creamy brownish head. Aroma of rich biscuity and toasted malt, caramel, dry fruits and fruity hops. Taste starts rich and sweet malty with biscuity and toasty notes, then followed by dark fruits. Mouthfeel is very warming, maybe a bit out of balance with strong and long bitter aftertaste. Full body, thick texture and lively carbonation in palate. More than enjoyed it... Grzesiek79 (4274) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 19, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2012 Deep dark rubin red colour, great foam. Smells verry intensive. Alcohol and caramel and smoke is domination with this taste a great barley wine beer from adnams. Limited bottle from 2010 Teran (327) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JAN 1, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2015 Sometimes I like seasonal (most of them are simply bad) beers, and Adnams Tally-Ho is one of those. This December beer is with small head, usual christmas aromas, but very nice and very drinkable. Very nice, well hidden alcohol. Would like to have it during the year.

This is a fantastic beer! Pours a near black body with a thin white head. Aroma is biscuit like. The drinking experience can only be described as lovely! Thick mouthfeel throughout... Initially tastes quite grainy and bready but this quickly evolves into a milk chocolate experience and further to a bubblegum like aftertaste on hearty drinks. Surprisingly, this is quite a sessionable beer despite the higher ABV! I cannot fault this beer on anything, a fantastic brew! A must try! Cheers! tombyars (1683) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - SEP 28, 2011
First tasted this barley wine at the winter ale festival held in Glasgow in February 1997. Cask and gravity dispense. Ruby black with an open buff head which rapidly disappeared leaving no lacing. Strong, intense aroma of damsons and berry fruit. Rich powerful mouthfeel. Dark malt complex gives a full range of flavours with fruit to the fore. Hedgerow berries, plums, black grapes, overipe cherries and a hint of dark chocolate. Very slight prickle of hops in the aftertaste which fades fast as sweetness returns with an alcoholic warmth in the slightly dry vineous oak finish. Excellent example of an English barley wine at its very best. Highly recommended.

Like a mellow Merlot... Hints of currants and raisin. No carbonation... Great cask ale. Gehbe (442) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUL 27, 2016
Clear deep ruby with a medium dark tan head. Nose of toffee, toast, dried fruit, some roasty notes. Medium sweetnes with light bitterness. Nicely rounded palate, a lovely warmer. rodenbach99 (4572) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2017
Bouteille Reserve 2012. Une robe de couleur noisette foncée avec une mousse beige. Un nez de fruits secs, de toffee. Une belle bouche ronde, longue avec des saveurs de dattes, de raisins secs, de toffee. Une belle chaleur en bouche. Longue et savoureuse. Un vrai barleywine. J’adore. Est-ce que cette bière serait victime de snobisme ? aracauna (3584) - Georgia, USA - JAN 11, 2004
Cocoa and tea body with an ok head. English. Flat cola, prunes and brown sugar in the flavor. Ther's very little hops in the flavor or aroma. It's mellow with a lingering sweetness. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2009 A Mes rate. Gravicask 2008 version from the Bree Louise. Adnams seem to be doing a lot right these days and this latest version of Tally Ho is really the cream of the crop. Very dark mahogany, no head. Fantastic colour though. Full on rich barley wine. Tonnes of burnt sugar, roasted barley, incredible creme brûlée character all round and a beautiful lick of warming alcohol. Really drinkable considering the strength and luscious busomy body. Massively good beer.
