Big, rich, sweet toffee aroma with notes of burnt caramel and a fruitiness that rounds it out.

Clear, mahogany colour with very little head.

This beer is intensely sweet with lots of big malt flavour. There is also a touch of vegemite and a hint of vanilla and smoke. Unfortunately it is a touch cloying.

Big and thick with moderately-low carbonation. This is smooth and sticky.

It's a decent English Barleywine but for me it is just a touch too cloying and could do with a hint more attenuation.
