hopdog (9018) - 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.

BlackForestCO (977) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - APR 18, 2008
On tap. Poured an amber color with a moderate beige head that receded to a ring. Aroma of caramel malt, some light fruitiness, and earthy hops. Flavor consists of pleasant caramel malts, with some nice spicy fruitiness (apple mainly) and a moderate, earthy hop finish what was slightly bitter. No real alcohol detectable. Full on the palate, nice moderately bitter finish. Pretty solid, good beer.

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.

ABUSEDGOAT (2413) - California, USA - FEB 17, 2008
Draft from Toronado Barley Wine Festival. Listed as a blend of the 1999 and 2007. Rich hoppy aroma, similar to the Racer 5. Heavier bodied, somewhat sweeter, alcohol hidden well.

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 8, 2006
Draft. Amber beer with a thin off-white head. Rich spicey, malty flavor with lots of caramelization. Caramel malt aroma with some earthiness. Hops present and backing, but don’t stand out. This just didn’t do it for me and I’m surprised to see so many high rankings. It’s just a lof of malty sweetness balanced with hops - there’s not a lot of complexity here and it gets tiring.

IrishBoy (3853) - Bakersfield, California, USA - FEB 28, 2006

droopy49 (97) - Lancaster, California, USA - FEB 21, 2006
I had this delectable treat at the BR brewpub on 2/18/06 and then again at Toronado BW-fest on 2/19/06. Poured an opaque ruby color with a thin diminishing head. Malty aroma with a smooth complex flavor. Notes of fruit, malts and some hops. One of the better barley wines I got to sample this weekend.

Odeed (1779) - Bakersfield, California, USA - FEB 19, 2006
this is a perfect looking beer as far as im concerned.murky red body with a lovely looking head.as the head sat it left a thick wall of lacing.a little light on the aroma but the flavor was a mix of chocolate,malts,and cherries.very nice stuff indeed.
