FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - JUL 22, 2011
Bottle at cgarvieuks. Pours a cloudy brown, with a very small ring of bubbles around the edge. Dark fruity nose, raisins, plums, with noticeable alcohol. Very sweet aroma. Taste follows this - really quite sweet. Theres caramel there, and similar dark fruits, but not as strongly as in the nose. Full bodied, small but pleasant carbonation, alcohol on the finish. A lingering sweetness too. Really quite nice.

tgncc (3118) - Bellmore, New York, USA - DEC 12, 2013
The aroma is dried fruit, toasted malt. Not. Sweet or fruity as expected for an English barley wine. The appearance is amber, hazy, cream colored head. The flavor is fruit, caramel, toffee. The finish is sweet, bread, not bitter at all. Strange barley wine. Hopless, no bitterness. Not overly sweet. Enjoyable overall, though.
