On tap at Bells. Served way too cold. Had to wait about 20 minutes for it to warm up close to 55 degrees. Pours reddish with little head. Smells floral with hint of pine. Taste bright with floral hops, very little sweetness. Bitter finish.

The Bull in a China Shop pours a very cloudy dark bronze red with a beige head that lasts a long while. The aroma is cereal, grape and bread. The flavor is a nicely balanced fresh bread, grape and pine. Overall this is a very nice brew.

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2013
On tap at Eccentric. Pours a hazy orangish brown with little head. Aromas are muted with a little booze and maybe some orange blossom or something sweet and slightly hoppy. Flavor is crisp, especially for a barley wine. Sweet sugars (kind of a maple syrup almost) with a bitter hops presence that dominates the late palate. It’s a bit understated for a barley wine, but for a summer barley wine it’s about spot on.

Tmoney99 (10544) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Tap sample at EC. Poured clear copper color with an average fizzy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy herbal, citrus hop and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy complex sweet flavor with a medium to heavy complex sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is was a solid beer but soft for style.
