A pour from the bottle on Black Christmas V. Pours a bit hazy gold3n with no head. Aroma is supersweet and fruity. Simular taste. Good.

Opaque brown with a tint of orange and minimal to.no head. Aroma is sweet raisin, wood and malt. Taste is overwhelming sweet at the start. Then alcohol and wood. Sweet, even for a barley wine. Does not have a smooth transition to the alcohol burn, and less stickiness than I would expect. Not bad, just not exceptional. DiarmaidBHK (6260) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2017
Taster at McLadden’s Northampton. Pours brown with no head. Doesn’t leave any lacing in the glass. Notes malt and wood on the nose. Lots of sweetness on the tongue. A bit of an alcohol burn on the finish. Not exactly my favorite style and this beer does nothing to change my mind. Zymurgeist2 (2504) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 27, 2017
Tap at Harry’s Hofbrau in Redwood City. This was just over the top cloying on the flavor. Massive alcohol. TimE (6483) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 24, 2017
2007 version in 2017. Deep reddish color. Big cherry, oak, slightly sour, vanilla, burnt raisins, brown sugar in the nose. Low alcohol brown sugar, some oxidization, burnt raisins, oak. Full body. Super intense. Really nice stuff. stevoj (6209) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 8, 2017
Bottle from Bin 22. OMG! This really hit the spot right now. Tastes perfect. Medium to dark amber, small white fading head. Nice sweet malty aroma, very welcoming, caramel, toffee. Taste too favors sweet malts, some woody notes, caramel. Doesn’t present itself as boozy, but its apparent. Smooth, but ass-kicking. Good night.
