Copper pour with a nice white head. Lots of dark fruit on the nose. Caramel, sherry, brown sugar, and oxidation. Some apple, dates, raisins, and a hint of alcohol. There’s a touch of cardboard and grass to the flavor. Brown sugar, sherry, caramel, and lots of date and raisin. Some apple, a bit of citrus peel, and a bitter pine and woody herb note.

BeerandBlues2 (9358) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 15, 2008
Draught at 6th Boulder Strong Ale Festival. Pours clear amber with a small, fizzy, white head, diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is average malt (hay, straw, grain, meal), heavy hops (flowers, perfume, grass), average yeast (sweat, barnyard) with notes of alcohol, apple, and pear. Medium bodied, creamy texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, moderate sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2008
On tap at the 2008 Strong Ale Festival. Listed as being aged 6 months in a Cabernet Barrel. Poured a medium to deeper golden - amber, lightly hazy, with a small sized white head. Aromas of wood, -sweaty-, some funkiness, and caramel. Tastes of wood, fruity, and caramel. I really did not get any of the Cabernet in this, which I was looking forward to.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2009
Tap at Rattle N Hum. Deep amber-ruby beer. Thick sticky head. Aroma is lightly sweet with a heavy sweet caramel aroma. Quite hoppy and chewy with a lot of piny resinous hop character. Light sweet fruitiness as well. Slightly vineous along with a light cherry flavour. The body is very rich and full and it doesn’t seem to fall out in the middle like the barrel-aged version does. Could use a few years, but it’s still drinking pretty well. A bit of booze on the back.

BMan1113VR (7820) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 7, 2012
On tap. Pours with a muddy orange hued body with a lasting white head that leaves great lace. Aromas are of tea, caramel, faded citrusy hops (orange), marmalade, alcohol, lots of esters. Maybe a slight savory note. Flavors are complex, brandy, caramel, dark fruits, orange, estery, balancing alcohol, malty, drinkable big barleywine with a high bitterness. Lower carbonation, fuller bodied, warming. Tasty malt complexity with a lot of (somewhat faded) hops.

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Sample at Rattle N Hum. This brew pours a muddy orange color with a medium frothy white head that recedes gradually. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, pine and malt. Full-bodied with flavors of resiny hops, malt and fruit. The finish is malty up front with a lingering piney aftertaste. Above average overall.
