UPDATED: JUN 11, 2009 aroma includes soft hints of smoke, wood and toasted marshmallow. very nice head, full body, big and meaty, sticky mouthfeel, and a nice bitterness that was similar to Expedition stout. The meaty flavors in this are wonderfully displayed. A sheer joy!

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - MAR 23, 2009
Draught at the brewpub. Amber colored with a creamy, off-white head. Sweet honey and doughy, worty aroma with some added floral hops. Malty and grainy flavors with a distinct unfermented wort or extract flavor, some caramel, and a hoppy finish. Thick and syrupy body. I’m not sure what was up with this, but it was way to worty tasting.

ryanfolty (1910) - 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.
