look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Crimson colored with coppery tones. An overly large head especially considering the abv. Lasts longer than expected as well, and by the way its an off yellow color.

Odd phenolics in the nose with some toffee, caramel, date, and raisin in the background.

Much better in the mouth. Big full bodied monster mouthfeel. Lucious malt just thick and creamy. Huge toffee and caramel, date, fig, prune, raisin, milk chocolate, alcohol, herbal hops, slightly sweet on the finish and a little hot. Great sipper for a shitty winter day...like today.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled November 2011.

Appearance - Deep brown body. A little reddish. Sizable khaki head. Retains a few swirls of lace and a thin collar.

Smell - Sweet caramel malt. Slightly phenolic. Fruity esters. Has a Belgian sweetness to it.

Taste - Very sweet. Bananas. Dark fruits. A little bit medicinal in the back. Slightly bitter, but not enough to overcome any sugars.

Mouthfeel - Heavy and sweet. Well carbonated.

Overall - This is too sweet for anything besides a small serving size. Even then, I'm not sure about it. The medicinal flavor doesn't really overwhelm, but it isn't pleasant.

4.03/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Deep amber in color with dark, blood orange hue and a dense haze. Poured with a thick, dense, tawny foam that slowly reduced to a wispy cap. Full bodied with a thick oily feel up front and light, tight, smooth carbonation through the middle to the end. Sweet toffee, toasted and caramel malt aromas with earthy hop notes and unmistakable booziness. Huge toasted and caramel malty flavor up front followed by subdued hop spiciness through the middle. Hop presence fades toward the end as the sticky maltiness takes over once again. Finished dryly with a candy toffee and strong boozy aftertaste.

Malt forward makes this an excellent English barleywine.

Pours a deep amber. Thin head that lingers. Smells like toffee, a bit nutty. Taste is similar, candy, toffee. Rich, smooth mouthfeel. I could drink this with pancakes in the morning or a spicy pork chop for dinner.
