kevinsenn (1436) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2013
On tap at BridgePort. Clear ruby with tan lacing. Sweet cherry and raisin aroma. Fruity hoppy candy taste, light bitter finish - nice. Medium-full body. Definitely the best I tried from BridgePort.

douglas88 (7180) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 28, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a mostly clear copper color with a medium white head. A big malty sweet nose. The flavor is nutty, molasses, light heat, a bit of darker fruit. Very dry at times, some lingering malty toffee. Good. Very nice English style BW,

Imaena (2038) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Bottle. The nose is all hops. It pours a deep maple syrup brown. The taste is intense hops and sweet malt. Medium body with lively carbonation. Decent BW but nothing crazy.

Toadvine (72) - Arizona, USA - JUN 1, 2013
22oz bomber, bottling no. 13. Pours a rich mahogany with light mocha head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is sweet, boozy, and slightly earthy. Some oak, vanilla, and bourbon notes come through as it warms. Oak definitely present in the taste, with bourbon, pitted fruit, and vanilla notes. Great, complex barley wine.

DGluch (5) - California, USA - MAY 17, 2013 does not count
Remarkably deep flavor for a barley wine. It's more than just malt there's even some oaky flavors. The only downside is how hard it is to find. - Drink & Give Thanks to The Lord

marcus (7463) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 6, 2013
From 2011 keg tapped at FredFest. Pours orange copper with a pretty beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a hearty smoked malt flavor that starts bitter then turns sweet. Very strange, but tasty.

mcrae19 (59) - - FEB 21, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Pours ruby red with a thin head. Syrupy, as expected from a barleywine. Strong aroma and flavor of caramel. Sweet with a definite hop and alcohol presence, but not so hoppy or boozy as to overshadow the malty, caramel flavors. A solid barleywine that I’d drink again.
