look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Bottle: Poured a deep amber color ale with an average size foamy head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of dry caramel malt with some residual sugars thought not as intense as I was expecting. Taste is also dominated by dry caramel malt with light grainy notes with limited toffee and dry fruits notes. Body is relatively full with good carbonation and alcohol not overly apparent. I was expecting a huge beer with quite a bit of residual sugars but this is a lot tamer then I had expected.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: It has a nice deep orangy/brown color to it. It has a nice thick light beige head that dies down moderately and leaves some spotty lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of sweet caramel, brown suguar, grassy hops and some dark fruit.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a some sweet caramel, a strong grassy bitterness, some brown sugar, roasted malts and faint notes of dark fruit. I find the grassy bitterness to be a bit overwhelming.

Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a overall balance and feel. Needs less hops and more malts. The bitterness overpowers the sweetness and it's about the only thing I'm tasting.

Drinkability: It's a smooth drinkable beer accompanied with decent flavors and aromas. Not something I'll buy again.

A dusty dark amber, an off.white high head with good lacing and good curtains.

Smelling of lemon, grape-fruits and dried apricots.

Starting sweet, bitter orange marmalade, grape-fruit juice and peel. Drambuie.

Little carbonation, smooth and oily, nice dry finish.

A nice balanced and rewarding American Barley Wine.
