The colour is deep mahogany brown (65 EBC) with some red. The liquid got lots and lots of particles floating around. The finger thick beige head dissolves quickly into nothing.

The smell is sweet and fruity with alcoholic notes of cognac and Madeira. Hints of bitter hops, dried fruits and red apples.

The taste is strong and semi-smooth with smooth sweetness, notable bitter herbal hops and lots of dried exotic fruits. Chocolate and ripe apples, hints of marzipan and tobacco. Medium body. The aftertaste is quite mild with notes of chocolate, toffee and plums. Hints of Madeira and cognac. The finish is sweet and malty with notes of fruit candy/toffee.

The carbonation is medium to mild, the small bubbles are short-lived and fresh. The liquid is smooth and a bit thick.

A pleasant and quite bitter barley wine. Well hidden alcohol.

Very nice barley wine which is not to sweet, which sometimes occur with this type. The cask ageing is evident, raisins, brown sugar. Smells very good, sweet, complex, typical barley wine with a twist of brown sugar. Dark amber colour. Overall a very good barley wine, goes well with strong cheese.
