BillKismet (3739) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 24, 2016
Melanoidin ruby red body with a brown cream head. Fruity candi malt aroma with a body that is fruity, wet shoe, and apricot. A finish of dark malt tannins washes over the palate. Medium-bodied. Ok.

Alphadelic (2078) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 26, 2015
The nose is wonderfully balanced. A nice caramel with an orangey hop aroma. Very wintry. Itís got one hell of a body on it. So thick and smooth. The whole beer is just really well executed. Smoothness, sweetness, carbonation and bitterness all well judged and in harmony.

Draft 8 oz pour at Special Brews. Listed as a barleywine. Iíd believe either way. Clear caramel color pour with a swirl fizz head. Surprising amount of hops on the aroma. Quite dominant. Isnít very sweet, which made this a winner for me. Bold malt flavors with a cool finish. Quite nice.

mcberko (12420) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 20, 2015
On tap at Engine House No 9, pours a deep dark amber with a medium beige head. Aroma brings out lots of caramel malt and considerable resinous hops for an old ale. Flavour is very unusual, with earthy roasted chestnuts upfront, followed by resinous hops and bready caramel malt. Well-balanced and nicely constructed. Strange but decent.

fiulijn (18101) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 5, 2015
Draught at Apex, Portland
Hazy amber color with compact head. This bold Ale has a nice, original fruity character, sweet grapes, light durian; itís moderately sweet, malty, correct bitterness.
Very nice.

SG111 (1009) - New York, USA - MAR 10, 2015
On tap at Bier Stein, Oregon. Pours amber brown color. Off white head. Aroma is sweet caramel, toffee, slight fig. Flavor is sweet, malty, toffee, fig, some dark fruits, maybe a of raisin. Slightly bitter finish which compliments the sweetness well.

authenticmead (69) - West Coast, Oregon, USA - NOV 18, 2014
On tap at ABV. Delicious balance of huge malts with hops. Nice and drinkable for 10.5 ABV!

stevoj (3595) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Citra hops dominate the taste, faint hop aroma. Clear dark brown body, thin head, good lacing. Mostly grapeftuit tast, nice malt backbone.

IndianaRed (3483) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 31, 2014
On tap at Prefunk Boise Hazy mahogany with a creamy light tan head. Plenty of woody bitter aroma. Some seasonal winter spice. Big light toasty flavor. Thin and astringent with a strange finish. Just OK

Growler filled tonight from Whole Foods Boise... Enjoyed tonight form a standard tulip... The brew is a pretty deep mahogany... off-white head lasts forever and leaves behind great sheets of lacing. Nose is a monster PNW BW complete with loads of citrus and pine hops... a bigger than expected caramel maltiness and a bit of dark fruit esters help balance the hop punch. Flavor is huge from front to back... big piney/citrus zest hops pummel the palate and are barely balanced by a dark fruitiness and caramel/dark toast maltiness... hints of cocoa move into the finish... surprisingly the bitterness seems restrained given the heavy hops... very drinkable even when cold, but this really comes together with warmth. Big boned, but not sweet or cloying ever... the body is a solid medium.
