3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
0,5 l bottle, Csakajosor.hu
Deep amber reddish beer with a nice medium foamy tan head that never diappeares fully. Honey with fruits, berries in the aroma, alcohol and some light toasted caramel smells. Oily body, thick texture, the berries luxuriates in the flavor, mild toasted caramel brings the lurking hops in the finish. Strong one, nice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to PaulUnwin for the share. Pours orange gold with a white head. Nose is slightly biscuity, with lots of caramel, toffee, raisins, dates, some citrus, and a hints of booze. Flavor is similar with lots of sweetness, some citrus, and lots of caramel with some boozy fruit. Medium-thick mouthfeel and generally a nice barley wine.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours red-amber with a quick light brown head. Nose is quite sweet and dominated by brown sugar and apples. Flavor is a bit more tame and a little on the generic side for English ales, but is quite drinkable. Alcohol does not factor. Decent stuff.

taste and aroma does indicate the 8.5% abv strength. Vinous overtones, tingling sensation left on tongue. Nice premium strength ale to savour.

dark amber colour. malty w/ faintest hints of red fruits like apples r cherries. had it cold so it was crisp. it is higher in alcohol so hints of raisin. could taste more as it warmed up. it is a big ale but not particularly nice. has an odd, bitter aftertaste that i donít think comes from hops.
