Vintage 2013.

The colour is dark brown, the liquid is clear. Almost no head at all.

The smell is sweet with alcohol, prunes, raisins and marzipan.

The taste is semi-sweet with warming alcohol, raisins and a touch of chocolate. Passing fruity bitterness. Medium body. The aftertaste got hot unclean alcohol, brandy and toffee cookies. The finish got notes of brandy, red berries and toffee.

The carbonation is medium strong; the small bubbles fresh and long-lived. The liquid is quite light for the strength.

Has matured well.

The aroma is strong and tangy with citrus, caramel and a bit of coffee in it. The palate is well balanced. The beer has a good body with flavors of mainly wood, hops and something simply described as "flowers". The finish has some metallic bitterness in itself, but it probably depends on the alcohol content.

For being the first barley wine I have drunk it was good ... really, really good.

Finally! The Barleywine that sells out in a few days, every delivery...

And now I know why! Despite its non-appealing bottle and label, the liquid content was more than expected. Wonderfully golden clear (except of course for the last drops of flavor) and with a nose that promises a caleidoscopic palate, this brew of Gods hit my tounge and mouth like a hammer... It´s of course sweet as nectar, being a Barley Wine, but at the same time very hoppy. Alcohol is covered well by the plethora of toffeish fruits, hiding within and lingering long after... Well done, Mohawk and Dugges Breweries!!!
