Boulder Strong Fest 2010. Red/brown orange and black... this beer looked wild with almost no head. Aroma is sticky, sugary, pecan pie. Flavor is boiled down sugar water, peach, and other fruit. I burped pecan pie while drinking this. Brownie with nuts in flavor and burning booze. As it warms, a little too artificial cough syrupy, but not really. Similar texture though. Somehow still really awesome...top couple of this fest.

Sampled at the 5th Annual Boulder Strong Ale Fest. Beer is nearly opaque dark brown without any head to speak of.<P> The aroma is malty with moderate notes of smokey roasted grain and chocolate, light notes of biscuit, molasses and malt syrup; Hoppy with trace notes of tangy herb; Yeasty with a trace of basement; Light-to-moderate miscellaneous notes of cherry/berry, wood and burbon, trace note of roasted coconut.<P> The flavor is moderately-to-heavily sweet, lightly bitter with an average-length, moderately sweet finish.<P> The body is full, the texture is velvety and the carbonation is soft.<P> Desserty and rich. Luxe, complex and sweet. Enjoyable.

2005 vintage on tap @ the BP. I like hot brews, but this one was perhaps too hot w/ whiskey. Very reminiscent of Alpine Great. Good, but a little too hot. Needs a little aging and it will be really good.

On the floor at GABF 2007. Smells very porty and vanilla, with a little floral honey in the alcohol character (reminding of the more floral meads I’ve had). Flavor is right in the sweet spot for my tastes in barley wines: chocolate and caramel covered raisins in a brown sugar reduction, bright thick sweetness and malts all over. Alcohol comes through in the finish a bit, which is an elegant counterpoint to the sweetness running through it. Well done.

I havenít much liked the brewery, but they were serving this one up at the GABF. Itís inconceivably good. Melted caramel, outlandishly rich. Brown sugar, warming alcohol, has a dessert wine vibe to it. Just outrageous, unique, and completely excellent.
