Bottled (from Utobeer). Deep amber colour, small white head. Aroma is sweet malts, some quite hoppy notes, mild spices as well as some slight alcohol sweetness. Flavour is rather sweet malts, alcohol, some toasted notes as well as quite big on the hops. Wellbalanced and rather pleasantly balanced.

Sampled cask conditioned. Deep burgundy in colour. Fruity and salty nose. Very malty, full bodied. Surprising almond and banana flavour. Very dry. Salty, bitter finish. Almost like a Belgian style doubel dark, but perhaps leaning towards a barley wine as well. Papsoe (25062) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 13, 2009

GBBF. Hazy amber beer. Good pale tan head. Light dry palate. Fresh lactose sweet malt. Traces of spicy bubblegum esters. Very mild citrus and red berry fruits. Finishes dry with a pinch of spice, but overall a sweet barleywine.
Bottle at home ... nice ruby ... rich malt ... sweet rich toffee malts ... juicy smooth ...hides alcohol well. Leighton (21494) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2011
UPDATED: APR 27, 2011 Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW. Clear, rich, dark red-brown pour with a modest head. Plenty of dark, ripoe fruits on the nose, some caramel malts. Very sweet flavor, tons of fruit punch, cherries, grapes, berries, mild caramel and straight sugar. Medium to full in body with fine carbonation. Warming finish, lots of sugars, some ripe fruit, subtle booze, more berries. One of the better English barley wines I’ve had; I don’t like sour malts. Unrefined and slightly in-your-face, this is a decent brew.
