3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of kristina. Pours a cloudy and almost opaque dark amber with a tiny off-white head. Sweet rum aroma with a tart edge to it. Rich body, lowish carbonation, heavy caramel and overripe fruit with quite a tartness. Rummy notes, wood and a chemical edge to it. A little acetone. The alcohol doesn’t really show. A weird creation, but I kinda dig it. 260412

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Tappeze Pub Athens, GA. So, if you just throw anything you know as a barleywine and the expectations surrounding it out the window, then this is not a bad beer. Muddy red/brown pour with no head. Taste is old wood, berry sourness, alcohol, astringent, apple. Just odd and if you had the version made in Athens, you will know that these are no where near the same beer. I would expect some bugs got in this one, accident or not.

How do you rate a beer that is completely off-style, yet still drinkable? I was told these bottles were infected by a friend after dropping eight bucks on a twelve ounce bottle. Sour, sour, sour. Pours beautiful brown raspberry color. The beer is completely flat and produces no head. Not a barleywine. Sour cherries and unripe strawberries dominate. Bottle - Ale Yeah! - Decatur, GA

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Bruisin Ales 2011 version - pours still murky ruby with no head. Aroma is sour cherries, vanilla, and funky. Taste is more sour ale then barley wine, but it doesn’t quite work as a sour ale either. There is this bitterness that comes through on the finish that becomes more pronounced as it warms. Weird.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Squat flip-top from Capone’s. Pours dark brown with minimal tan head. Nose is oaky cherry, run, some lactose and tannins. Tastes very tart, funky, with notes of cherry, lactic tartness, mild funk, and oak. This one is mis-categorized, and should be a sour ale.
