4.21/5 rDev +4.7%
Grabbed this one at a pub in Paddington. Thin beige cap over a bronze, clear beer. Decent retention with some clinging bubbles. Super fruity aroma, dried fruit like raisins and figs, along with a nearly tropical character and sturdy biscuit malt base. Solid bitterness didn't get in the way of fruity and malty flavors, as well as a bit of alcohol. Nicely balanced between hops, malt and yeast. A bit bready, biscuit, slight caramel, dried fruit. Full bodied with low carbonation, a bit drying, malty texture. I enjoyed this quite a bit. I'd love it if this was easier to get on the other side of the pond.

500 mL bottle poured into a straight sided glass.
Appearance - Deep golden body. Big off white head. Retains forever. Clings inside the glass.
Smell - Sweet smelling. Fruity and malty. Caramel and raisins, but it's a lighter fruitiness than other barleywines.
Taste - Pretty hoppy. Right up front. Sweet pale malts. Grapefruit hops. Fruity, caramelly, and sweet into the finish, which has a hop bite.
Mouthfeel - Sweet and medium heavy. Well carbonated.
Overall - Very flavorful, but pretty sweet.
