Immensely sweet, ABV evident, jam, marmalade, Brown sugar, earthy, fruity hops, powerful, but not that sophisticated. Copper colour, medium head, flavour is very sweet, bitterness is light, warming. BeerandBlues2 (14027) - Escondido, California, USA - MAY 1, 2015

Aroma is sweet toast, honey, and cookie malt with plums, cherries, earthy and citrus, dank hops and light alcohol notes. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, medium citrus, dank, and floral hops, medium bitterness, dates and stone fruit with a sweet finish. Medium-full body and medium carbonation.

This is one of the most easy to drink barley wines I’ve had so far. Has a soft and smooth mouth feel. Great looking head and lots of druity aromas with honey and tart. Lots of boiled, candied and dried fruits in the flavor. Plus some fresh citrus. Good stuff. Not a heavy Barley Wine one would expect from this style though.
