Enjoyed from the bomber in a Duinen snifter, this most excellent barley wine pours a hazy brown with a light off white head that dies down to a thin ring and light lacing. Nose of plums, raisins, light chocolate,a light brandy aroma, strong alcohol, and brown sugar. Flavors are up front sweet and mildly coating with dark raisins and brown sugars to the fore, chocolate flavors mildly come in the back with a strong alcohol burn to the aftertaste. Great carbonation, great dark fruit flavors blending in merrily with brown sugar. An excellent example of an English barley wine with decent carbonation that gives it a slick yet effervescent finish. Very nice.

Cheers.

Bought at Table & Vine in West Springfield. Thick black-brown appearance with some hints of red in the light. Thick head when poured, but it dissipated eventually leaving some nice lacing on the sides. Aromas are very sweet with distinct flavors of malts, dried fruit like raisins, nuts, toffee, and alcohol. The drink definitely had a sugary-fruit taste mixed with toffee leading to a bittersweet drink with a sharp bite of alcohol in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is a good carbonation and helps to give the drink a crisp, creamy feel. Overall, a fantastic drink.

Appearance is a dark brown with a slight red tinge.
Aroma is cherries, toasted malt, coffee and mocha.
Flavor is dark fruits covered in caramel, brown sugar, roastyness.
Mouthfeel is full and creamy and the flavor lingers for a while.
This might be my new favorite barleywine.

I'm pretty new to the style, but this one wowed me. Very complex flavor of dark chocolates and fruits and wanders in to the Belgian Strong Dark category of flavor. The aroma and texture complimented the flavor quite well. I was very impressed with this one.

Not much of a looker, as the body is a murky dark brown, topped off by a modest head. It has a thick creamy mouthfeel. The flavor is intense: Notes of caramel and brown sugar. A subtle burnt orange taste finishes.
Let this one sit awhile to warm and open up for a strong but we'll balanced barley wine.
