Lots going on in this tawny brew. Gives impression of brandy with it’s fruitiness, but there’s no brandy. Oaky, sweet smelling. Hints of peat make their way into the aroma and flavor, but just hints. This is a malty barreled sweet brew, though not overly sweet or hot, and with a unique flavor."

Ibrew2or3 (7101) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 1, 2013
On draft at Tap 25 in Livermore and enjoyed in the company of Livermore spokesman, ratebeer’s own, joeneugs. It pours up with a copper body and slight haze and supporting an off white head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet citrus hard candy, some hop resin and mixing with smooth sweet bourbon like booziness. The taste is robust with sweet malts, sweet vanilla infused bourbon and then malt sweetened citrus hoppiness. Into the finish it seems smooth whiskey like notes are lingering into the after taste. Solid brew and balanced too.

Tap at Barcade, Brooklyn - 02/03/12. Pours a hazy reddish/amber colour with a thinnish white head. Sweet malts and caramel on the nose and also some sweet fruit aroma’s. Tastes as nose allied to a little honey, syrup, burnt sugar. Medium to full in body, not too much carbonation, sweet and boozy finish.

Slipstream (2076) - USA - MAY 22, 2012
On tap at Rattle’n’Hum Bear Republic event. A sweet and grainy barleywine-type brew, with a little wild funk. Sweet, fruity aroma, a warm finish, and some dry oak. Eccentric stuff, but interesting for sure.

onceblind (4623) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 14, 2012
At 2012 Avery Strong Ale Fest. Slightly hazy amber bronze, not much head. Funky aroma with a slight acidic sourness, candy sugar, toffee, and a touch of raisin. Smelled a little bitter but I couldn’t figure out any hop tones. Pretty sweet flavor with candy sugar, apple, toffee, raisin, cherry, and more bright boozy toffee. Nice flavor but too sweet.

On draft at the Bistro Barrel fest. This one pours orange with an off white head. The aroma has some oak and tropical fruit. The flavor is mildly sweet with notes of tropical fruit, molasses, oak and definitely some pea soup in the background. This borders on not working, but it does. I liked it.
