Dark brown body, with a tiny, beige head.
Very smooth, complex aroma of toffee, nuts, dried fruits, cocoa, some honey, some molasses.
Tastes similar, with some more chocolate and some alcohol.
Medium, creamy, velvety mouthfeel, with almost no carbonation.
Finishes smooth, medium sweet, subtle roasty, a bit warm, a bit wooden, with cocoa, creamy chocolate, some fruits.
Tasty. Very smooth throughout, especially the nose is very lovely and complex. The sweetness is just well dosed, the only little flaw for me is some alcohol in the taste. Overall a lovely, classic example of a Barley Wine, I wouldn’t guess this a 10 year old beer at all, if I didn’t know it.

2006 vintage. Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Intensywny aromat wanilii i mlecznych karmelków. Mało ciała, pełno wanilii i cukrowej przypalanki, sporo przynoszącego skojarzenia z bourbonem alkoholu. Znakomite. 9er (99) - Maryland, USA - APR 1, 2017
Nice brew. There was a hint of oak simmering on the pallate. Nice lingering difference about 5 seconds after swallow, the oak is more prevelant. Initially, the sensation is nutty esters but reveals as woody variety. Normal ale notes, except for the deeper rice aged qualities of a Belgian malty concoction. martin00sr (4441) - Haderslev, DENMARK - APR 1, 2017
