Ferris (2006) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 21, 2014
Draft - Vintage 2008 - Vinous, sweet caramel and some oak. Cloudy orange with a rich head. Cotton candy, caramel malts, hoppy bitterness and a slight boozy burn. Great aroma, but for the age still a bit edgy.

ryanfolty (1780) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - MAR 27, 2014
March 24, 2014 - on tap at the Stone bistro. Opaque muddy brown pour with some head and lacing. Aroma and taste were sweet malt and piney hops. Seemed to be more of a double ipa than barley wine.

Odeed (1774) - 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.

Nickls (1765) - SE DC, Washington DC, USA - JUN 21, 2010
(Old BA rate - tap Gingerman 09= tap at Gingerman August 09) Thinner eggshell head that didn’t last too long, but not terrible retention; clear coppery brown color. Musty wetness on top of sweetish malts; bit of booze in the aroma. Medicinal and a bit herbal; kind of a mess here; wet woodiness; and a bit like cough syrup. Thicker and a bit sticky; bit cloying; soft carbonation. Not really good drinking; could barely finish my sample; just too may off flavors, or at least flavors that I did not enjoy. Overall, don’t know what they were going for in this one, but the mineral-like flavors on top of the booze and other stuff just missed.

Draft. At rattle n hum. Tan color, lots of lace on the side of the glass. Doesn’t taste as boozy as I’d expect, but quite good and a little fruity
