look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5
Allies Win the War has a clear, brownish red body and a massive tan head. The head is rocky and thick, and it begins to lace my glass immediately with good looking lacing.
The aroma mixes fruity hops, a touch of alcohol, bread, chocolate, and dark fruits including figs. The resulting combination is fairly nice.
Although Allies Win the War tastes fine, it is no where near as good as the aroma suggested. The flavor is very weak. A little bit of alcohol and touches of dark fruit mixes with a slight hop bitterness. Notes of bread and chocolate come through as well. The finish is downright bland and watery, which is the biggest disappointment of all.
Fairly light body, with an almost watery feel to it.
For how good Allies Win the War smells and looks, it's a let down. There is nothing bad about it, but considering the amount of flavor most other beers pack into 8.5% ABV, this one is strangely simplistic.

3.71/5 rDev -2.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Canned in 2011.
Pours a slightly hazy medium brown with copper highlights and a large, frothy khaki head that slowly dissipates, leaving sticky lacing.
Aroma is laden with dates, figs, prunes, and toffee. Smells very rich.
Flavor reveals green apple, dates, and raisins underlying a lightly toasted, bready caramel malt backbone. Hints of sherry indicate that oxidation may have set in.
Body is a touch full, with fairly low carbonation and moderate alcohol warmth.
The malt backbone is a little lacking for the style, but ester notes are fairly complex. Probably won't age nicely much longer. Metallic notes surface as it warms.

A: Pours a deep ruby red with a light mocha head.
S: Dark fruits and light, but not citric fruits in the nose.
T: Lemon, some resiny pine, dark fruits to start followed by bready malt in the finish. Interesting. Definitely different from English or American barleywines.
M: Full bodied and smooth.
O: Worth a try. It's a good beer, and if nothing else, it's interesting. I've tasted few beers that taste quite like this.
