Bottle at ronnies, bottle conditioned. This is a barley wine as there are no old ale characteristics at all, and it isnt old. Alround. ruity, spicey, sweet peppery malt, rich cake, really complex but incredibly drinkable.

Bottle Conditioned. From Bottles, London. BBE Oct 2003. Very dark brown. No carbonation left at all. Vintage beer aroma - slightly heady. Very smooth sweetness - not heavy, just a mellow yum. Fruits are there, plus a wandering bitterness that just adds a little interest. A very enjoyable ale, but not exactly top drawer.

Bottled. Mahogany/cheery coloured body, with a fine carbonation. Complex sweet fruits mask this strength of this beer to produce a very fine beer indeed.

I don't generally care for barleywines much and bought this by mistake, frankly. However, the sweetness of the malt and the existence of a light carbonation made me a believer in Redshank. Mahogany in color, this wonderful beer may rival even Old Horizontal for best barleywine.
