[Bottle (500ml) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o j&m] Pours a hazy orange-amber with an average size diminishing bubbly off-white head. Nice aroma, malty and hoppy along with some fruit. Flavour’s the same, malty, hoppy and fruity but adds some toffee. Hoppy finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Pretty good stuff. mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2014

Overheard: "Like sniffing liquid fence."
2014-12-04. Lightly hazy dark copper-brown body with a tiny beige head. 3+ Aroma is quite malt forward, caramel and fruit, raisins and figs. 7++ Flavour is similarly malt forward, moderate alcohol character gains traction in the finish, amplified by the bitterness of the finish. Average plus bodied palate, light carbonation. 3+ Solid, it shows the booze just a bit more than my preference but is still pretty nice. Bottle from Valhalla’s Goat, Glasgow Nocturne (1992) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2014
Cask at PSBH, Manchester. Dark copper shade with a light brown head. Aroma is toffee, brown sugar and a fair amount of hops. Taste starts off with malty sweetness before a sticky, gluey, resinous hoppiness takes hold. Hint of dark fruits in there. I’m not sold on hoppy barleywines but this is a pretty good effort.
