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.

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. Rasmus40 (22174) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2011
Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet malty, caramel, dried fruit and a little alcohol. Flavor is quite sweet and light bitter. Sweet finish with some alcohol. 270511 booldawg (70) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2011
taste and aroma does indicate the 8.5% abv strength. Vinous overtones, tingling sensation left on tongue. Nice premium strength ale to savour. Blairgus (4615) - California, USA - APR 18, 2011
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 don’t think comes from hops.
