UPDATED: DEC 10, 2007 I gotta Trump this one. Pours brownish amber with a full, lingering froth. Superb lacework displaying a full canopy and a thick fluffy ring. Aomas of fruitcake, grassy herbs, and oily new leather. Medium full nectar w/ ample residual effers that are very soft. They seem to just glide around like a gentle wind. Texture is like loose knit cotton. Nice! This brew is not overly sweet. It just barely makes sweet on the rickter scale...for a Barlewy Wine that is. Dark plumby flavors with grapes, cassis, leather, peachpit, kiwi, melon rind. The finish has a lingering hop that keeps me going. The 12% abv doesn’t even taste. Very well balanced. This is a world class BW in every right. Keep up the good work amigos. Highly recommended.

On tap at biero. Full marks for me. Aromas of caramel, butter, with hints of grass and alcohol. Taste is extremely long, with sweet, bitter, and sour notes. Palate is syrupy and full bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

Great aroma of molasses and fruit notes. Looks great. This is truly excellent. A nice molasses but zesty and bubbly flavor, with lots of floral notes. Truly top notch. Worth every penny.
