Dark red / amber colored beer. Smells sweet, rich and complex. I taste caramel, figgs, resins and ripe red fruit. The best barley wine I have tasted so far. MitchWayne (263) - Kokkola, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2009
Really good barley wine, the dry hoppy end and the aftertaste reminds me of lingonberries. Sweetness stays under control. My kind of american style barley wine, a winter warmer. My only complaint is that my bottle didn’t have that awesome eagle in it, it had a new, more "look what i made while drinking heavily and using powerpoint" kind of a flair to it. omhper (25713) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 21, 2002
Bottled. Chesntut brown. Big huge grapefruity cascade hop aroma. Rather sweet and really full bodied, but dominated by intense hoppiness. A very american style barley wine with a lingering hop bitter finish. Fukito (1064) - Santiago, CHILE - APR 6, 2007
Tap at Arendsnest, march 07. Pretty strong "C" hop aroma and a nice toffee touch with some pineapples, pepper and strange whisky ending. Deep, profound, bittersweet flavor, tons of different tones and a great juicy ending. Excellent. Medium to heavy MF, dangerously drinkable though. Amazing strong ale. wyzzywyz22 (2752) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2009
Bottle, Winter Ales Festival, Manchester.
This was hugely enjoyable. Poured a hazy dark orange. Wionderful fresh and fruity grapefruit cascade hop aroma. Flavour also hop packed with bags of tropical fruit. Great body, pleasantly thick, with a subdued but nicely balanced caramel malt presence. Lip smackingly tasty. Would love to get my hands on some more of this.
