12oz Bottle. Thanks Sean! Gusher! Aroma is a solid, clean, fresh pineapple Brett. Very nice, but obviously, a bit out of place. Flavors are great. Clean, rich, slightly sweet wheaty lemon, citrus oil, grapefruit, coconut, guava, and lime. A whole range of fruit-expressive wheat malt tones. I think the - I’m assuming unintentional Brett - has dried out what may have otherwise been a punishingly sweet big beer. The dextrins that are left give a great structure to support the tropical fruit flavors and play off of Brett’s cottony, slightly bitter dryness. An accidental, delicious hot mess.

33cl bottle shared at Kenny’s 20K celebrations @Chriso’s, thanks to Paul, gusher warning. It pours a cloudy light amber color with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet and lightly card boardy. Taste is oxidised with more cardboard tangy fruits and lemon peel. Medium to light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, decent

Scopey (11519) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2016
Bottle consumed at Kenny’s 20K tasting, thanks to the main man himself. Opens with a gush! It pours hazy bright copper with a small white head. ~The nose is rich, bitter - sweet, sticky, cereal, stewed orange, tinned peach and fruit cake. The taste is crisp, pretty sweet upfront, earth, alcohol warmth, wood, leather, honeyed grain, cereal, toast and peach. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Interesting and enjoyable in small doses!

koleminer20 (1850) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 26, 2015
Enjoyed at an all barley wine tasting at Travis’s house on February 21. This was shared by Ryan Meray from an unlabeled 12 oz bottle. He said this was from 2012. The pour is a lighter golden orange with a thin egg shell colored ring of head and not any lace. The aroma is a little oxidized with a tough of leather or tobacco joining the fruits that are there with a nice booziness. There are definitely some citrus tones here, with a little spiciness, presumably from the wheat. The flavor is pretty much on par with this. There is a little more booze perhaps, The fruits take hold, almost tropical and citrusy, with a nice spicy trend that isn’t bad at all. The alcohol definitely moves through on the back end to domination. The mouth feel is thick and viscous, maybe a touch syrupy. The carbonation is light and soft, helping it cling. The aftertaste is lingeringly fruity and boozy. This is a unique brew, and pretty good to boot.
