Bottle at 1st CBC Sunday Tasting. Thanks to Paul for this baby. Pours a clear amber with a very weak film. Lots of both fresh and ripe fruit in the aroma. Very sweet flavor, some caramel, honey, mild fruits, some bread and booze. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Mild warm finish, light caramel, fruit. Pretty good stuff.

Bottle. Nice honey orange body, unfortunately no head. Mildly sweet aroma, fruity and a warm alcohol hue. Medium bodied, pleasant spicyness, very soft. Countbeer (6589) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2011
Small off white head on top of an almost clear orange colored beer.
Smell malts, nuts, herbs, leaves and something light creamy.
Taste is a soft and smooth mix of malts, herbs, caramel, cream, light toffee, light clay, low bitterness and a light touch of dryness.
Soft malty herby caramelish aftertaste.
Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a soft light sticky texture. artyom (1233) - Osijek, CROATIA - FEB 9, 2014
0,5l bottle. Hazy copper color with big beige head. Aroma is citrus and floral hops with some fruit notes. Taste is medium bitter with nice sweet malt and caramel notes along with some fruits. Medium to full body and flat to average carbonation. Very complex beer. Sjohnh (1033) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2014 First barley wine I’ve had in many a year. Lighter colour than I expected - dark yellow to orange. The apple taste hits first, followed by other strong fruits which for me balance off the alcohol strength very well. Very nice. Pay heed to the note on the label describing this as a lively beer - I lost the top third of the bottle to the kitchen floor!

From 500ml bottle. Very dark drown colour with slight ruby hint. Aroma and taste are similar. Treacle and malts with sweet nuttiness. Good drink

Bottle conditioned. Orange bronze, good head and condition. Spicy malt nose with hints of fruit on a wave of alcohol. Mainly malty body with some apple notes and more alcohol, and a finish that becomes dry and bitter.

Brown cloudy looking beer, with a very sweet alcohol aroma. The flavour is malty with a slight liquorice aftertaste. A good beer, better than most barley wines. omhper (26030) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 8, 2005
Bottled. Amber colour, small head. Grapefruit and toffee up front. Sweet and full bodied. The complex flavour includes caramel, grass and peat, as well as some licorce in the finish. Medium bitterness. Well balanced. JonMoore (2067) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2006
Bottle conditioned. Hazy amber colour with large and lasting off-white head. Sweet and floral aroma. Malty and fruity flavours with a dry and hoppy bitter finish. Full bodied with warming alcohol. Nice, dangerously drinkable barley wine.
