Caramel, resin, peach aromas. khaki head on clear amber. good blance of weight and fizz in the moth, aromatic. Hops win the the tussle just barely, with some pine, okay tang, a slightly overcooked caramel. balanced bitter finish.

Nice beer! Has a woody barleywine aroma to start. Really awesome color. Super clean and crystal clear with a beautiful frothy head. Itís like barleywine light. Bitter caramel and toasty. It has a unique enticing bitter flavor. You know how some beers make you think about pussy? This beer has that quality. Sex in a glass. Itís that aroma.

3.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy reddish amber with a short lived head. Aroma is dominated by hops with a little soapiness. Flavor is an excellent balance of floral hops and roasted malts. Very easy to drink. Would make a superb session beer...but watch out for the ABV! This would be great with spicy Indian or South American foods to mellow out the heat. Cheers!

Spicy hops and a little caramel malt on the nose. Taste is interesting cuz itís not too bitter and not too sweet therefore making it taste like it canít make itís mind up. Theres a slight sourness. Spicy hops and Slight citrus hop followed by a some malt and a little earthiness. A bit a of bread and yeast flavour too. Its nice and quite interesting but I donít think Iíll bother getting myself another anytime soon.

Nice and crisp with a bit of a toasty bite. Not sweet, but not terribly bitter either...quite smooth in fact. Average carbonation and a fairly abrupt finish.

Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Habersham Liquors. It pours a deep hazy amber color with a small, light tan head. The nose is very malty with notes of bread, apple, pear, and alcohol. The flavor has lots of apple, alcohol, and bittering hops in this brew. The rye adds a different characteristic. Brash and forward, this one doesnít come together well. Some raisin and dried fruit come out as the brew warms. Medium bodied with average carbonation.
