Marheb (4793) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 16, 2015
(En fût au O’Brien’s): Un sucre caramélisé, bonbon à l’érable et pelleté terreuse, presque fûmée. Le corps est très collant, liquoreux et garde des traces des houblons disparus depuis peu. L’amertume neutre est indélébile et l’alcool ne parait pas plus qu’elle devrait.

ACHops (1328) - 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.

pras (577) - Maryland, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Tap at Snallygaster 2014. Typical American style Barleywine. Hit with piney hops upfront, ended with a bitter sweetness.

slowrunner77 (9942) - 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 (1908) - 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.
