Draft at CBC 2015. A hazy amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of alcohol and over ripe fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol and over ripe fruits, leading to a bitter finish. Shark_Pants (781) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 4, 2017
375ml bottle from Cotteridge Wines during a 2016 business trip. Pours hazy red-brown with nice beige head that recedes to a film. Prominent oak character in the aroma, caramel and toasted notes, maybe some marmalade. The taste is quite sweet - lots of caramel, toffee and rich maltiness, lots of oak tannins, vanilla, vinous character, herbal hop bitterness, a little orange marmalade. Rich and decadent mouthfeel, low carbonation, sweet finish, warming (but not spicy) booze. Pretty decent barley wine but perhaps a little heavy handed on the barrel character.

Capped/wrapped 500 from Craft Beer Kings. Pours very hazy brown with some bubbles. Aroma is wood, wine, brown sugar. Full bodied. Flavor starts very brown sugar/treacle, shows some wood and arguably wine, and then goes back to the sugary stuff with some flavor that seems wood/sauterne (which I haven’t had for some years). Flavor is a rather complex thing. Heat not really noticeable to me. Pretty interesting and flavorful sipper. AdmiralVernon (1200) - SWEDEN - NOV 30, 2016

Raisiny aromy, caramel and a hint of smoke in the aroma. The taste is a lot of raisin with some caramel and wood. A tiny bit to much wood for me. janubio (1003) - SPAIN - JUN 23, 2016
