"It turned out to be a case of mistaken identity, of course - wrong place at the wrong time...but Claus was soon back on the street with the polite apologies of the authorities - no questions asked. All’s well that ends well, surely, but still, the reporters wanted to know...it takes its toll, doesnt’t it? "Indeed" sighed Claus, "my elf is going crazy, and I fear I shall soon go crazy as well" And with that he hoisted a great flagon of his favorite barleywine-style ale, silently contemplating the future and straining to remember why he got into this particular line of work in the first place. Peter Scholey, Brewer.

Bottle shared at ChrisO’s. BB Sep 2016, 10.5% Seems to be filtered. Pale orange, clear, lightly sparkling, big foamy white head. Aroma is musty tangerine, sweet and syrupy. Body is medium, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Taste is toffee, caramel, a little alcoholic, some marmalade. This is fine. I’ve had similar beers with a 3.8 average. The naff marketing probably has an impact.

Amber body and medium head. Sweet malts, sticky fruit, grapes, pine tree. Syrupy mouth feel, sweet Base and a bit short in the end for the abv. Sticky and sweet, just how I like my barley wine. Sure, you could add a lovely citrus hop layer, but it’s just fine as it is. Tasty and satisfying end if the night drink. (Bottle from Saveur Bière)
