This smells really good, like molasses and hops, with a nice appearance. The flavor is thick and caramelly but just ok

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle... Pours cloudy and singed caramel-colored with a fleeting, white head. The aroma delivers a malty mélange of sweet dark fruits, caramel, fruitcake and sweetbread. Full-bodied with lazy carbonation. The flavor is bittersweet, boasting dark fruits, caramel, toffee and marmalade. Trends bitter and leaves a resiny, bitter aftertaste. Bottle courtesy of richiesd!

Dogbrick (9998) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Sample at GABF 10/04/2014, thanks to my BIL for assistance with note-taking. Clear dark amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Partial ring of lacing. Aroma of malt, pine and hops. Full-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, pine and earthy hops. The finish is malty and fruity. Pretty good overall.

slowrunner77 (7854) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Nice carmel malty backbone and a plethora of arthy spicy hops. Not quite up to par with the better barleywines out there (surprisingly small bodied for 11.3%) but pleasant. Bittersweet finish."

Bomber poured a clear reddish amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of caramel, candied orange, earthiness and light toffee. Palate was medium to full bodied and smooth. Flavors of caramel, candied orange, pink grapefruit, light earthiness and light toffee with a smooth lingering candied orange finish.

Theydon_Bois (14283) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2014
Keg at the Commons Ale House, Santa Monica, 16/04/14. Orange amber with a moderate light beige covering. Nose is pretty hop forward for a barley wine, bitter tropicana, barley sugar, grapefruit, caramel, if I didn’t know this was being classed as a barley wine I’d have guessed it was a big ballsy double or triple IPA! Taste follows a similar line, sweet licks, caramel, grapefruit, pine, bitter orange, spice, light booze. Full bodied, fine carbonation, light dryness in the close with a lick of booze. Decent enough hoppy barley wine (its a TIPA really !)

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Bottle:   Reddish caramel, thin sudsy tannish head, spotty lacing.   Candied citrus peel, caramel, and strong citrusy bits on the nose.   Smells very much like an American style Barley Wine.   Sweet caramel and citrusy notes on the tongue.   Not overly hoppy, nor overly malty.   Seems a decent balance between malts and hops.   Big citrusy and caramel notes on the tongue.   This is a citrus based Barley Wine, pith and peel, but on the sweet side.   Not too heavy, moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Big candied citrus peel and pith on the finish.   Candied, but also a bit bright/young.   Green like bitterness/maltiness on the finish.   Solid example, sweet and citrusy, as well as candied.   A good American style Barley Wine.
