ACHops (1030) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 17, 2015
On tap @ Bear Republic. Pours dark amber copper with very thin white head. Aroma is sweet boozy malt; raisins, port, and oak on the back. Taste is big heavy caramel malt, dry and oaky on the finish. Bitterness is restrained and easy drinking relative to the big abv here.

Tap at Snallygaster 2014. Typical American style Barleywine. Hit with piney hops upfront, ended with a bitter sweetness.

slowrunner77 (7861) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 12, 2014
"Dark fruit, caramel, and slight chocolate combine harmoniously in this aged (our draft was 3 years old) barleywine. Big alcohol was evident, but was warming, not hot. Full feel, slightly low on the carbonation, likely because of the age. Good brew. Still had a little hop bite even."

skoisirius (1882) - Earth, Washington, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Tap at Jernigan’s a few weeks ago. Nice fruit malt nose, hint of booze. Straw and elements of bread with a boozy apple on the flavor. Little thin but good.

baraciisch (2462) - California, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Clear caramel orange... Aroma of sticky toffee, caramel, oak, syrup... Flavor is fairly balanced, sticky caramel malts balanced by dry bitter earthy hops, more bitter than your average bw... Decent ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thisis12ptfont (1018) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - APR 11, 2014
Aroma of molasses funk, amber malts and maple syrup. Appears a dark crimson/amber with a thin foam rim. Taste is syrupy amber malts, cinnamon, toffee, biscuit malts, and some hop presence. Finish is very boozey. Overall, this is very balanced and complex. I’d give this an A rating.

bth122 (1366) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Draft at Brass Rail. Honey color. Not as much aroma as I was hoping for. Light fruit, caramel. Light sweetness. Creamy texture. Some warming alcohol. Nice balance of malts and hops. Would get again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
