4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured into a large snifter. Deep hazy amber brown with about an inch and a half of cream-tan head. Head held well and formed a nice thin layer on top and a hick collar. Phenomenal lacing. Aroma is really toasty/bready, some good sweet caramel, and earthy/woody hop. Taste is somehow inverted from the aroma, British hops, caramel and then the toast at the end; but the aftertaste turns back into the caramel sweetness. Good body: medium to almost full. Medium-low carbonation.
Bottle. Poured a deep amber color with an off white head. Dark fruits, caramel, and some brown sugar sweetness. elbernays (1731) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 1, 2017

Aus der Flasche im 2016-11 getrunken. Ein echt fettes Teil! Für ein Barley Wine noch etwas zu "frisch", aber schon jetzt richtig lecker. Die Süße und Hopfenbitterkeit wirken recht harmonisch, wobei die Bitterkeit für micht recht dicht an meiner Grenze ist. Niko100 (3012) - Chicago, New York, USA - JUL 8, 2017
