Tap: Cloudy amber-copper, murky like you’d expect. Thin khaki film & collar sitting quietly up top. Aroma with hefty caramel malt & sticky toffee with equal parts sweet honey & a stale, earthy hop bite attacking mid-palate. Apparently this was made with honey & maple syrup. Definitely get the honey in the aroma; the maple, not so much. Taste follows aroma closely. Sweet toffee, mildly metallic caramel malt sweetness, a little honey with a backing of earthy, seemingly English type hops. A little lingering brown sugar in the finish, mild bitterness & a slight metallic twinge. Again, where’s the maple? A decent barley wine, but nothing too exciting about it. Would be a little better without the small metallic hints I get sometimes.” -- by tectactoe

Tap: Deep, murky copper color; 99% opacity with a huge, foamy, long-lasting beige head on top. Aroma with light tartness, lots of tannic wood, some vague fruit, perhaps cherry skin with some mild lemon-lime tartness. Taste is very dry with lots & lots of barrel. Tons of wood... Stripping dry, tannic, a little astringency. A touch of tart acidity, bordering on grape skin flavors. Nutty & woody back end, a hint of caramel malt peaks through. Maybe a bit of spiciness from the rye, too, but I’m getting a ton of wood... lingers heavily. Not bad but wow, the barrel itself is certainly present in this one. Decent at best.” -- by tectactoe

On draft in Geneva (OH)
Made in partnership with the Red Eagle Distillery down the road, and available in their tasting room, this bourbon barrel aged beer is a strange beast. Part of it can be pinned down to the young nature of the barrels as the distillery is only a handful of years old. The rest though is an enigmatic result of Cellar Rats process. The outcome mostly works but I would love to know what they used as the base.

Aroma / Appearance - A semitransparent bronze base with soft head fills the pint glass with warmth. Oak, cotton candy, yeast, and more add the feel of a state fair enjoyed from the inside of a young oak barrel. The whiskey is evident though it does not completely overwhelm the experience.

Flavor / Palate - Dry cotton candy, sugar, and sweet malts are refreshing. Iced tea and light oak support the transition to a very gentle finish. Would I rush out to get more of this? Probably not. However as an experiment done side by side with a pour of the whiskey it demonstrates the influence that proper aging can have on a beer.” -- by Brigadier

“On tap at brewpub pours a hazy orange/golden with a thin quickly dissipating white head. Citrus and orange in the aroma. Big sweet orange citrus in the taste with a not overpowering touch of resinous dank hop spice, and cereal and caramel malt on the finish. Very enjoyable!” -- by Atom

Taste is lots of apricot, juicy with white vinegar tartness, lots of balsamic, and orange rind. Real carbonated and fluffy. Good stuff.” -- by madvike

“Pots crisp and clear straw with short white head. Doesn’t actually build a head nicely. Aroma is light malt, very clean and crisp. Some citrus notes, lighter though. Flavor is clean and crisp, lighter... Smooth malt with a little bite from the hops. Really enjoyable finish. For a lager, this is solid.” -- by tricyclist

“On cask at Main Street, pours a cloudy gold-tinted yellow with a small white head. Aroma is typical for a hef, with notes of banana and clove. Flavour brings out lots of banana, but also lots of nasty medicinal residual sugars. Sort of tastes like a banana cough syrup. Not a disaster, but totally off the mark for style. Needs serious refining.” -- by mcberko
