A - Dark red in color with no head whatsoever. 3.5/5

S - Dark stone fruit with some oakiness. Honey and molasses. Very sweet. 4/5

T - Ultra sweet. Dates and raisins. Honey and molasses. Sickeningly sweet. 3.75/5

M - Very heavy and viscous. Sticky sweet. Very little carbonation. Chewy. 3.75/5

O - Good barleywine. Do not drink with dinner. Drink this with dessert. Dinner probably biased my review heavily. 3.75/5

Absoutely fantastic. Almost closer to a port than a beer. Where can I find more!?

Sweeter barleywine. No carbonation. Decent offering, but not for everyone.

Poured into teku glass. Very nice dark amber/red colour with little carbonation and tiny bubbles. A bit hazy. The head dissipates very quickly. Smells just great! Reminds of honey, caramel, dates and molasses with the alcohol hidden very well. Maybe a tiny bit of leather in the background.
Tastes sweet, with dark caramel upfront and a slight bitterness at the end, which somehow survives in the aftertaste. Feels syrupy with medium body and low carbonation. Absolutely fantastic!

A: Brilliant copper with a tinge of red, no carbonation, a very faint haze, topped with a half finger of sulfur yellow head.


S: Strange almost vomit like scent, Italian proscutto all the way or Serrano Ham, burnt sugar, crème brulee, light alcohol scent, light fruitiness.


T: Crème brulee, burnt sugar, the same strange proscutto flavor is light, thick brandy alcohol, throat burn.


M: Thick syrupy texture, very low carbonation.


O: I got this on Wishbeer, Thailand, drank in Kunming on January 9th, 2015. Its that time of year to have this one, especially on the day of the first snow in our city! Memories of having barley wine with my bro in Canada this around this time of year.

Muddy, dark orange color with almost no head. Pleasant malty aroma with some fermented fruit that are also present in the taste along with some caramel. Not overly sweet like some other barleywines. The high ABV is pretty well hidden. Body is heavy and makes the beer a bit difficult to drink. Not bad but not really good either.
