look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A-Best attribute of this beer. Perfect amber color with exact cloudiness for barley wine. The right amount of carbonation. Pours a finger thick head that quickly dissipates to 1mm-2mm ring with lacing on top throughout drinking.

S-Extremely sweet up front with caramel notes, indistinguishable dark fruits. No pick up of either alcohol or hops.

T-Too sweet caramel with slight hint of dark fruit behind. Finishes shockingly bitter with too much hops on end. There is also an alcohol finish that is off putting. Every flavor on own is OK, but as whole not balanced.

M-Just above average as it needs to be creamier. It looks like it should be, but does not deliver.

O-Seeing it poured into a glass had me excited, but flavor at this time was a let down. I am going to age this beer for five years and see how it mellows.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 1 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Split a 500 ml bottle Nov.30th

A: looked pretty good Nice Brownish Deep Amber colour, Tan'Offwhite head

S: Subtle, faint notes of caramel and chocolate trying to make their presence known

T: Oxidized full on Cardboard bomb. Lingered over powered even the booze.

M: Slightly thinner than i hoped and the faint carbonation didnt help.

O: Not what i was expecting i checked the bottle best before stamp it had two numbers on it 2 years apart should of been in the clear. might need another look if a new shipment comes in
