“Bomber from WIlbur’s. Appearance: 2 fingers off-white head, clear, good lacing, golden straw color. Aroma: grapefruit, floral, caramel, orange, light dank grass. Palate: medium body, average carbonation, bitter dry finish, sticky texture. Taste: slight sweet caramel into big bold hoppy bitter that lasts, and then explodes even more. Overall, very hop forward and brash, but good. Enjoyable, but nothing amazing.” -- by HIGHB4LL

“Keg and cask samples at Schlafly (cuz that’s how I roll). Light amber pour with a small head. Nose is very sweet. Marmalade and caramel, butterscotch. Taste is pretty heavy. Sweet and fat marmalade and caramel, slight herbal accent. Oily, full. Ok.” -- by jackl

“After reading reviews I was expecting just a light berry taste. I am getting overwhelming jam taste. Light porter, don’t really get the spruce on it. Towards the very end I am getting a bit of a burnt taste, but overwhelmingly very berry flavored. Hideout’s Blueberry cobbler was better.” -- by fakebeersnob

“This is an amazing beer. Smooth cascade of sour peaches that flow into a crisp, tart preach. So much intensity but bone dry. Amazing beer!” -- by MrDick

“750 ml bottle into snifter, bottled on 7/12/2010. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 2 finger dense khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big caramel, toffee, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, raisin, plum, fig, chocolate, cocoa, light roast, citrus zest, light pine, herbal, grass, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, fruitiness, and light-moderate hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big caramel, toast, toffee, raisin, plum, fig, brown sugar, brown bread, chocolate, cocoa, light roast, citrus zest, light pine, herbal, grass, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate earthy pine/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, raisin, plum, fig, brown sugar, brown bread, chocolate, cocoa, light roast, light pine, and herbal/roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt, fruitiness, and light citrus/pine hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an outstanding dark barleywine style. All around awesome complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt, fruitiness, and light-moderate citrus/pine hops flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering, definitely aging well.” -- by superspak

“This is a great buy. A very drinkable porter. Great for those hot days when you want a dark beer but need to quench your thirst.” -- by yliyliquor

“Pours a very pale golden color. Very thin look with a foamy white head that dissipates very quick. Not a very strong aroma. A few unique flavors here. A pale wheat flavor upfront. A bready spice that flows into an original bubblegum flavor. The spice lasting in the background throughout. Not particularly for me in style but unique.” -- by SpongeRuiner

“From a bottle. Pours hazy reddish brown with a fizzy bubbly beige head. Tastes like roasted malt, roasted coffee, sweet molasses, earthy, light booze and light ash. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like roasted nuts, sweet malty booze, toast.” -- by snoworsummer

“A very different kinda quadruple where it does not have that distinctly abbey yeast character. There still is some of the expected dark fruit and special B malt notes but there is also a unique spicy variant that must be the product of the Triticale. There is also a nutty and smoky quality that honestly seems out of place. Overall I must admit that while I like the uniqueness, the final product us a letdown for it is not very true to style and missing the lush round sweetness I expected... It is not a Abt in the end.” -- by BBB63

“Bottle from Supermarket Liquors in 2012. Appearance: finger khaki head that does not last, orange cloudy color. Aroma: biscuit, floral, molasses, cereal. Palate: medium body, alcohol warming, dry bitter finish, average carbonation, oily and sticky textures. Taste: sweet molasses malt into medium floral bitterness. Overall, love this beer! very good balance, super smooth and drinkable, just very much my style.” -- by HIGHB4LL

“Bottle: Pour is fairly clear, honey gold, with a chunky off white head into this pint glass. Retention is average , leading to a haze and a ring, with light spotting presence here. The nose is baked bread, caramel and toffee notes, with a hint of nut presence as you’d probably expect for the style. Still - It is an appealing feeling. The flavor profile is initial soft bitter, moving to a hint of astringent, moving to bread and light floral presence - The hazelnut presence moves to a lingering sweetness near the finish line. I asked myself why they’d brew an admittedly tasty / boring english brew instead of an obvious lager - perhaps that was more work than they wanted to do for the collection. Oh well.” -- by Hair6a11
