Nice beer, strong roasty flavor and a little caramel smell.

Super-Wednesday tasting with another gift Kel dear, enjoying the late winter. Appearance: Red, translucent, creamy foam with average fugacity, helping to maintain temperature. Aroma: Fruity Malt. Taste: alcohol at the inlet and outlet, think BBGolden brings more flavor; this felt that the aroma of the flavor, at least lacks the metal.

The apperance is of a really nice red, a bit of amber too. The foam is quite persistant.
Too much alcoholic and with a great bitterness.
Some berries in the flavour and aroma (strawberry, raspeberry and cherry), a bit of wine flavour too - quite interesting this beer. Unfortunately, the alcohol takes too much space in the aroma and taste.
I guess it would be better if I drink it with some red meat or don't drink as much as I did..

Amber reddish color with an off white head with medium retention and leaving laces.
Aroma of molasses, red fruits and wood.
Flavor of caramel, cherries, raspberries, earthy and citrus hops and oak. Dry and fruity aftertaste, red fruits are very present here.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 9.2% ABV is well hidden and harmonic after it starts to show up.
Likely the best Baden Baden. A Barley Wine with a good drinkability. Although a bit less complex than top average for the style, it is not shy and it compensates given the good deal of hops.
I have the impression that it improved from last time I had it (when I had found it with too much raw malt). Maybe I got use to the style. Anyway, it is definitely a great option to warm up the colder days.

A: Amber dark red with a creamy head with low retention, making a lacing in the end.

S: Caramel and herbal citric hops making a good remarkable bouquet.

T: Follows the nose with a surprise bitterness in the begginning, that become more alcoholic and sweet after some time.

M: Warmth alcoholic with low carbonation and very sweet aftertaste.

O: A good beer, but maybe too heavy, with all that sweetness and alcohol, I would prefer a dry beer than this sugar sticky one, still I think this beer is really consistent and well made. A good beer but not to my taste.

(Served in a snifter)
Validoate 18Jul12
9.2% 600 ml
A- This beer pours a dense clear deep red-garnet body with a thick creamy head that sticks to the glass with each sip. There is a gentle sea of microcarbonation that works its way to the surface.

S- The dry rich caramel has some toffee notes and some jammy notes come through as it opens. The finish has a wet clay and woody caramel finish with a hint of green hops.

T- The rich caramel malt turns brassy as the beer opens up and a soft green dry hop flavor pokes through in the finish. There is a slight tartness and woody character to the hop bitterness that lingers after the sip.

M- the medium mouthfeel has a nice warming alcohol heat that compliments the malt flavors very nicely.

O- The nice full hop bitterness and alcohol warmth really support the malt flavors making this a unique but very nice barley wine and I think this would really age nicely, if I had more.
