On tap at Toronado for Barleywine fest ’09. Reddish-brown color with a considerable beige head. Sweet malty aroma along with alcohol and some piney hops. Flavor is sweet malt, starfruit, sour light fruits, wood, piney hops, and alcohol. Fairly full palate. A strong one.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 19, 2009
Draft at Blind Tiger. Poured a hazy dark orange/brown color. The head was sticky, off white, and left some lace behind. Rich aromas of raisin, molasses, fig, and caramel. There was also a whiff of steeping malted barley. Medium to full bodied with moderate bitterness and plenty of alcohol warmth and flavor. Fairly sweet with fig and dark caramel notes. The sugars were tempered somewhat by earthy black tea and bitter citrus rind. Solid barley wine.

tgncc (3020) - Bellmore, New York, USA - MAR 28, 2009
One of the sweetest Barley Wines I have ever had. The appearance is an attractive dark red, more red than usual for this style. The aroma was very sweet, fruity, a slight floral hoppiness. The flavor was sweet, fruity, brown sugar, toffee. The finish was a mix of swet sugar, and bittering hops. Thick, syrupy mouthfeel. Decent overall.

Tap @ Pizza Port Strong Ale Fest 2009. Pours a cloudy deep reddish amber with a small beige ring. Nose holds some candied tree fruits, caramel and toffee. Flavor starts sweet with fruits and finishes slightly bitter and boozy.
