look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Dark burnt orange body with a thin white head that fades quickly to a swirl with collar. Very brief spots of lacing.

S - Sweet citrus, kumquat, apricot, a little heat, sour bitter orange skin. A full package.

T - Follows the nose to a tee, plenty of different flavours to savour. Nice blend of bitter, sweet and sour.

M - Full bodied, quite syrupy, low to moderate carbonation.

O - Nice example of the style. Outrageously expensive bottle but enjoyed thoroughly on a warm summer's evening out in the back yard with the wife.

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

Bottle: Poured a slightly hazy bright orangey color ale with a nice off-white foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of sweet malt with different cereal notes (probably oat) then what I was expecting. Taste is dominated by loads of sweet caramelized notes offset by some cereal. Body is above average with good carbonation. Interesting though I am not sure I need to drink oat wine on a regular basis.

22oz bottle into Portsmouth snifter.

A: Pours a dark burnt orange with a thin white head that faded into a thin film leaving some spots of lace.
S: Sweet smelling overall with scents of roasted orange zest.
T: Orange, citrus rind, pine resin, raisin, apple juice, and a bit oaty. Finish has an orange rind bitterness. Despite all of this, the flavors are dull and hard to pick out.
M: Syrupy mouthfeel, full body, light but tangy carbonation.
O: Flavor is a bit bland but the sweetness, bitterness and alcohol are prominent. I’m no expert in the style, but compared to the few others I’ve had, this one is not my favorite.

Drank 6/25/11. Split w/ scottfrie.

A: Pours a rosy amber color with a nice vanilla cream colored head (~1/2 finger).

S: Pretty muted. There's a definite hint of citrus from the hops, but other than that I'm not getting much. There is a bit 'o earthy tones (oak or some such), but not much else.

T: The taste follows the nose pretty closely. It's dominated predominately by the hoppy aftertaste (citrus and pine), but up front it lacks a bit of a punch. The slightest hint of a sweet, oat-y taste hits, but there's nothing to contrast it with so it misses the mark a bit.

M: Pretty creamy and with a medium body. The carb is pleasant and not distracting.

O: It's a little hard for me to rate this beer as I haven't had anything of this 'microstyle'. It's not a bad beer, but the lack of flavor throughout the taste is a big turnoff.

Thanks to AleWatcher for sending this bottle in the Barleywine BIF. Served in a Hill Farmstead long-stem tulip.

Pour yields a bright reddish-copper brew with a thin white head and some light spotty lacing on the way down. The nose brings a nice malt base with some cherry and other light fruits plus a good dosing of caramel. Light bready character. The flavor is light on fruits and carries a bit of bread and caramel. A bit of booze and some light bitterness there as well. The bitterness dries out the finish a bit and there's no indication that this one contains oats, as it has really thinned out. Touch of alcohol. Nice brew.
