Copper colour with no head. Aroma is floral with a light red fruit sweetness. Refreshing and almost evaporating. Low bitterness.

On tap at Borefts BF 2017. Clear amber colour lasting white head. Woody barrel age aroma. Bit too woody for me. Some toffee. Ugh. Too woody too boo\y . OK but not my thing. Boozy.

@ Borefts Beer Festival 2017. First of all this is not an IPA. Great aroma of barrel aged barley wine. Taste is full bodied, with port and caramel aspects. Nice oak. Creamy palate.

Sampled @ Borefts Beer Festival 2017, day 2. A bit hazy reddish color, small off-white head. Smell and taste malts, heavy barrel influence, what is that, whiskey? Overripe fruit flavors as well. Toffee, caramel. Heavy but nice as a slow sipper.

Thank you for sharing! Sampled draft @ Borefts 2017. Day 2. I didn’t care for most Shiga Kogen beers but this one was amazing, tasted more actually like a high boost HoD than the HoD &Shiga Kogen collab. Darker amber. Nose is extremely heavy on oak, sugar, syrupy caramel, oak, vanilla bark. Taste is all caramel, malt sugar, oak, vanilla, oak is massive, caramel, sugar, oak vanilla syrup, almost maple. Damn tasty, all barley wine no DIPA left.
