Heavy malty aroma - mostly caramel and candy like notes. Some dark fruits. Hoppy profile is on moderate level - mostly flowery and slightly herbal notes, which are quite annoying. Taste is very sweet - stable and long. ABV is extremely well hidden here, highly drinkable. Medium to full body, syrupy, soft to moderate carbonation, finish is sweet and hoppy. In overall classic ABW, but in my opinion that hoppy profile should be more balanced with sweet maltiness and sometimes it plays the main role here.

From notes. Enjoyed at the 4th Annual Barleywine Tasting at Nicoles house on January 28. 375 mL bottle. The pour is a light amber color with a thin white ring of head and no lace as it falls. The aroma is just not that great. There is a huge bitter bomb. Thin hot hops with a light caramel and a hint of fruitiness before a huge alcohol comes rolling in. I understand this is a wheat wine, but this is a mess. The flavor is just as rough. The alcohol dominates and the bitter hop takes a narrow second. The caramel and dark fruit are just blips on this one. The mouth feel is painfully watery and light with a sharper carbonation and a lingeringly bitter finish. No thanks.

Big white head. Sweet aroma: Licorice, red fruits, dried plums, caramel, some hops Very intensive. Taste is very sweet but not tiring because of high bitterness. There are caramel, malts, fruits, hops. Body is full, extremaly oily. Low carbonation. Fantastic beer!

mgajdaczewa (2067) - Katowice, POLAND - JAN 4, 2017
W aromacie słodowo, nieco karmelowo, nuty czerwonych owocw, chmiel kontynentalny, czyli lekka ziołowość, pozytywnie, ale bez szału. W smaku gorzej, płwytrawne, akcentw pozytywnego utlenienia tyle co nic, goryczka podwyższona, tępa, nieco szorstka słodowość, alkohol. Nie jest jednoznacznie złe, jest zaskakująco przeciętne, niedopracowane. Albo inaczej, staromodne. Kiedyś może i robiło wrażenie. Teraz robię meh.

0,375l bottle. Very thick hazy dark brown colour with long lasting tan head. Aroma: Very rich, rasin notes first, caramel, nuts (especially almond when the beer gets a bit warmer), redcurrant. Not harsh, sophisticated. Taste: Oh yeah. Sweet and very rich in malts, thick syrup like drink. Than the high alcohol shows up with some tarty caracter (redcurrant) but just for a few seconds before the full pleasent bitter mouthfeel rules the feel. (almond) Than the sweet dessert like caracter comes again and its well balanced with the bitter tone. This is what I call a complex beer. Very thick and creamy the texture. Full body with almost no carbonation at all. Long dry and bitter finish (with the almond tone in the taste). Amazing beer for celebration times.
