kabsetter (103) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Snifter at CC brewery: pours a thin, muddy brown. Some caramel light lacing. Little head. The Aroma is amazing here. A blend of sweet dark fruits, caramel and slight alcohol. Drinks with a slight alcohol burn and flavor. Something pleasant here, but overpowered with alcohol in an unblanced way for me. The after taste even more so. Compared to the Church on the Hill’s, a slight difapointment for me. Glad I tried it, but dont want it again.

harrisoni (15792) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2015
On tap at Craft Covent Garden, black dark brown colour lasting thin tan head. Some barrel age. Again it’s a big beer. Unsubtle. Mostly just huge and overwhelming. Some barley wine character kicks in. Just a bit aggressive for me. Sone apple.

Damico (3000) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Pours very thick not quite murky dark unclear pitch brown with a beige head. The aroma brings huge lightly sweet perfumey wine like malts with even some caramel and chocolate notes. The flavor is my favorite part bringing chocolatey caramel sweet malts so nice on the palate with a big malty but super smooth balanced sweetness bringing a beautifully huge and balanced BA barleywine.
