On tap at McGregor’s. Reddish, clear, no head, color saves the look. Very sweet nose, spicy, medicine. Very thick sweet spicy sticky palate, caramel taste. Alcohol noticeable. Not bad.

Ron (2906) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2010
On tap @ McGregor’s. Poured a clear copper with a minimal lingering ring of amber foam. Aromas of caramel, fruit and a hint of spice. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. The booze was noticeable from the start.

PilsnerPeter (3029) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUL 10, 2010
Tap at Barcade: hazy copper pour with a tan ring of head. Caramelly faded hop aroma. Twiggy with a crystal malt note. A touch of spearmint. Mild carbonation with a ton of crystal malt and faded minty hops. Slightly oxidized.

Nickls (1938) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 21, 2010
(Old BA rate - tap Gingerman 09= tap at Gingerman August 09) Thinner eggshell head that didn’t last too long, but not terrible retention; clear coppery brown color. Musty wetness on top of sweetish malts; bit of booze in the aroma. Medicinal and a bit herbal; kind of a mess here; wet woodiness; and a bit like cough syrup. Thicker and a bit sticky; bit cloying; soft carbonation. Not really good drinking; could barely finish my sample; just too may off flavors, or at least flavors that I did not enjoy. Overall, don’t know what they were going for in this one, but the mineral-like flavors on top of the booze and other stuff just missed.

RickTStiles (817) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 16, 2010
Pours deep red with a nice white head and excellent lacing. Very sweet, candy like aroma balancing a healthy dose of hops. Body is syrupy, taste is sweet balancing bitter with grapefruit, candy apple and apricot. finish is just as complex as the taste and lasts a pleasant while. Nice beer.

caesar (5648) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2010
Tap @ Boston/NY 2009. Clear reddish color, short head. Quite sweet, decent malty taset. Quite sugary.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2010
Draught at Blind Tiger. Dark cloudy amber to brown with small head. Aroma is boozy molasses, pecan pie, caramelized brown sugar, booze. Taste is sweet molasses, pecan/other nuttiness, lots of sugars. Oily palate, molasses booze lingers on tongue, light burn down throat. Good but a little too sweet.

basspro76 (423) - New York, USA - APR 29, 2010
Drank from a tulip glass at the blind tiger ale house, NY. Tasted more like a DIPA then a barleywine. Very dry, hoppy and a light citrus flavor.
