Pours an almost clear, deep, dark amber coloration with a medium, creamy head. Smells of bready, caramel malt with notes of toffee, burnt brown sugar, honey and dark/red fruit: fig, redcurrant. Taste follows the nose, being dominated by bready, caramel malt, burnt brown sugar and toffee. Lighter notes of honey and dark/red fruit: fig, raisin, redcurrant, and just a hint of a certain hoppy, floral note. Finishes bittersweet, with a bit of booze coming through in the aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and carbonation.

I'm not a big fan of barleywines and this certainly has that rich, syrupy sweetness that I personally dislike. It's also nicely balanced by some fruity and bitter notes though, and not bereft of a certain complexity. Probably a decent example of the style, but not for me.

This is a typical non barrel-aged barleywine, this is strong on the brown sugar, the burnt toffee. The hop presence is not that big but still more than in an English version of the style. Low carbonation, syrupy

Enjoyed a 0.33l bottle at Café Frape in Maastricht on 21SEP17. It cost me €6.50.

Served in a shaker pint (oddly!), it was a slightly hazy, deep amber color. Had minimal carbo, a thin, fine, off-white head, and ok lacing. Aroma was on the mild side, with some caramel malts detected. Had a nice body; medium-plus, and it was pretty smooth.

Taste had more caramel and some brown sugar. A bit of fruit appeared, with a smidge of candied apple and subtle fruitcake notes. Finish was a touch earthy. Expected more, but still decent. Prosit!

Hazy dark orange color with beige head. Aroma has some apple esters, grainy malts and brown sugar. Taste follows with the apple notes, some candied fruits, brown sugar and some earthy/leafy bitterness on the finish. Medium body with a light carbonation. Not bad but it's not really what you would expect from a barleywine.
