2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Malt aroma with hints of orange and chocolate. The flavor is sweet malt with chocolate undertones, some caramel and alcohol. An okay beer, but it does not really give me the "kick", can not say exactly why. Should probably try this again!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Heavy syrup flavor with a strong hoppy that has a real bite. The mouth feel is full and doesn’t end throughout the beer. It has it’s flaws but it’s very drinkable

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Expensive as hell little bottle of beer pours hazy copper with full off white head. The aroma is dusty caramel malts, apricots, a bit of spicy hops and booziness into the end of the draw. The taste has malts, crystal malts, brown sugar, apricot sweet fruitiness, spicy hops and chemical booze into the finish. Seems to be a good deal going on here but it doesn’t really come together and doesn’t seem like age will do it much good either. Hope I’m wrong on the later point though.

Thanks to IBrew2or3 for the share. Pours clear yellow-orange with an off-white head. Nose is malt, sugar cubes, vanilla, citrus, some miscellaneous bitterness. Flavor has sugar, malt, caramel, and oversweet plums. Interesting barley wine. Somewhat syrupy and pretty nice.

Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours beautiful copper with an off-white head. Aromas of warm sweet malt and spiritous fruit. Full bodied. Heat isn’t important until the gullet. Flavor is smooth, pleasant malt with a light astringency. Suggests wood barrel.
