Hazy chestnut pour with a 1 finger, creamy tan head. tons of apple and toffee in the aroma as well as some caramel, dark fruit fruity and herbal hops. Flavor is dark caramel, toffee, molasses, over ripe apple, bready and fruity yeast, herbal hops and earthiness to the finish. Medium body, syrupy to creamy feel and medium carbonation. Good, solid Barley Wine. I think it was $6.50/330ml bottle, though, pretty steep.

From the 2012 batch. Chestnut-mahogany brown pour with a small tan head. The nose brings out a pungent sweet barley malt character with some molasses and earthy hops. No booze but it has mellowed in two years. Medium body. Good sweet malt flavor up front followed by a more probing hop bitterness that coats my tongue with earth and raisins. This is exactly at the age I like my barleywines. A couple years in to maintain the basic character but not too biting on the palate.

[Bottle (11.2oz) shared with HogTownHarry & biegaman -- c/o HogTownHarry] Pours a dark ruby with a spare tan head -- almost oily looking. Aroma is a bit sugary and candy-like along with some alcohol and dark fruit. Flavour is sugary and fruity along with some alcohol, a hint of paper and some hops. Long bitter finish. Average bodied. Good, not great.

330ml bottle shared with blankboy and biegaman. Deep brown-red pour, small bubbly off-white head. Aroma - I get figs, alcohol and tons of candy necklace. Taste light roast, fruit, candy, alcohol, slightly floral - building bitterness in the finish. Slick, sweet, interesting, could not drink a lot of it.

Ughsmash (7098) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Bottled. Poured very deep brown with a creamy, sticky beige head. The aroma picked up spicy dark fruits, figs, and licorice with touches of vanilla and molasses.. peppery and a bit woody on the edges. The flavor found more licorice and spiced dark fruits at the core, with heavier spice (pepper and anise primarily) around.. finished a touch sharp, but with tasty stuff. Heavier-bodied with creamy, filling carbonation.. a little sweet at times, and a little rough at the finish, but otherwise some very good stuff.

Pour is a dark brown with almost no head at all. Aroma is a sugary molasses and toffee malt. Flavor is a big dose of sugar with some dark fruit and alcohol. Finish is sweet caramel and mouth drying alcohol. While decent this could have been laid down for awhile more. Still a bit to sweet and boozy.

2012 bottle. Clear cola color with fleeting tan head. Toffee, bubblegum, dark pit fruit aromas. Smooth mouthfeel. Nice pit fruit, dark caramel, rich raison flavors with a nice spicy alcohol twang to finish____good

nuplastikk (4291) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 25, 2014
11.2oz bottle. Deep brown body, thin beige head. Berry aroma. The amber malt combined with the English malts and yeast, really give it a fruity flavor. Big, with a different complexity than an American version of the style. Subtle port, red wine notes. Different layers of malt depth. Lots of dark fruit character. Approaching Old Ale. Very nice beer. Unique, tasty.

Dark hazy mahogany brown with a thin white foam cap. Nose is bubblegum-y, with cherry and earthy toffee malt. The flavor is rich and satisfying, with a earthy sweet toffee and fruity tone, that bubblegum note like from the nose, and a little sugar cane. Not terribly complex, but sweet and big with that semi-bitter slightly smokey finish.
