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.

blankboy (6787) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2012
Draught at Rattle ’N’ Hum, NYC. June 2. Pours a murky copper with a small diminishing creamy white head and lots of lacing on the glass. Nice aroma is fruity and hoppy along with caramel malt and bit of spice. Flavour, again is fruity and hoppy along with caramel malt and alcohol. Nice bitter finish. Medium bodied. Great stuff, an easy to drink version of the style.

Tap in flight @ RnH w Andy and Dubra. Pours light caramel color with very little head. Light-bodied barleywine with subtle notes of fruit and booze. Not bold at all, fits very well within the style.

BrewBoxer (2482) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 8, 2012

BMan1113VR (7914) - 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.

On tap at Coles
Aroma big heavy malts right up front with solid dose of west coast hopping. Aroma rather typical what you would expect from Bear Republic not of barleywine.7+
Appearance amber with light haze. Good creamy top. Fine lace on glass.4-
Flavor and Palate : Big heavy body. Sticky sweet malts that are easily balanced by equally massive amount of hops. Texture itself was mild making this colossus quiet drinkable. Mature offering.

Overall not to balanced and relatively awkward not the best.
