This dangerously drinkable garnet beauty is a hop lovers delight. The intense dry-hop nose and the alcohol content are perfectly balanced for a caramel candy-like malt finish. This is a serious beer for serious beer afficionados and it only gets better with age. Cellarable for 3 years.

mambossa (319) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2016
Pours a bright rich Amber. Room temp now. Nose is piney, dripping ripe peach, dark cherry, burnt caramel, high floral notes. Flavor starts floral and delicately fruity, mealy apples and bright flowers, sweet malt, balanced bitterness with ripe peach stonefruit. Linger carries on stickily but with a string lingering bitterness to rise up to it. Nothing out of the ordinary but VERY well-done.

gkeh (452) - Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2016
Deep mahogany pour, fluffy white head that lasts throughout the entirety of the drinking experience. Leaves great lacing. Beautiful looking beer. Aroma is super piney, super astringent, really dank. Slight ETOH burn. Nice. Rich malty sweetness is e foundation, but the dank, bitter hops shine here. Thick, chewy mouthfeel. Really good.

freekyp (2021) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 14, 2016
Pours murky dark amber with a small ring of off white head. Big resiny dry hop aroma tos of caramel. The hops are spicy and provide a sharp prickly zing which cuts the immense malt level. Chewy like caramel candy laced with peppery hops.

Bomber. Pours hazy orange-brown with a good-sized beige head. Rose tea, plums, cherry, and flowers in the nose. Taste is cocoa, plums and cherries, raisins, chocolate, light rose finish. Tasty! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mikeyo1 (746) - Linkping, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2016
Bottle @ home, a year old. Pours out an amber colored liquid with a beige head, great retention and nice lacing. Nose is very hoppy with pine apple, mango and, ripe orange and orange zest. Lots of warming caramel, dried fruits, alcohol, toffee, biscuits vanilla and hints of milk chocolate. Full bodied, smooth palate initially, with a drier and bitter taste towards mid-taste. Taste is fruity and hoppy with loads of caramel & toffee that balances. Flavors alos of red apples, apricots, overripe mango, oranges, subtle milk chocolate, vanilla and oak. Aftertaste is bitter with orange zest, grapebruits, bicuits and nuttyness. Long duration.

BlackHaddock (6629) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2016
22 oz bottle at home on 4th July 2016. Really enjoyed this: wife didnt like her sample, so had to drink the whole bottle myself. Mahogany coloured brew, off-white topping. Hops rule the roost here with an alcohol presence that adds to the flavouring nicely. Semi-sweet tropical fruitiness oozes through the more bitter hops and the malty base creeps into the mouth also. A beer I would gladly have again and again.

This is a beast. A lot of hop and acidic alcohol to start off with. Then the Barley Wine starts to find its familiar place with the caramel, dried fruit and some oak notes. A bit unbalanced but I like it!
