Bottle provided by Cuso, many thanks! Wow! The alcohol is hidden but comes forth later and is damn mild and warming. Malt,malt, malt. Caramel, milk chocolate. I sense mild whiskey characteristics. A beer delicacy of the extraordinary!

Bottle shared by Cuso. Thanks for this masterpiece! Aroma is strongly malty. Dominating biscuit, caramel, coconut, complemented with fruits, overripe grapes. Hazy reddish amber colour. Taste is wonderful. Rum combines with coconut in a malibu way, biscuits, light warming alcohol. Wow experience.

Very spot on British barleywine, with some bitterness. Put the name of a British barleywine not an imperial bitter. Good peachy appearance, some nice lace. very drinkable, smooth mouthfeel.

Slightly hazy dark copper pour with a beige head that fades down to a ring. Strong caramel and vanilla aroma with booze in the background. Taste again is strong caramel, with vanilla, some sweet fruits, and a bit of booze. Slick palate. Nice beer.

Bottle to glass. Pours a cloudy amber color with lots of sediment and a nice off-white head. Aroma is malts and almost a grappa character, kind if astringent. Flavor is oak, malts, vanilla, bourbon. Reminds me of the BCS barley wine, but not quite that level. Medium body with a lingering bourbon malt vanilla flavor. Excellent beer.
