tcane7 (1670) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Draft at Lemon Hill. Pours a clean amber with thin off-white head that quickly dissipates. Nose of caramel, honey, roasted malt, citrus, pine and dark fruits. Full body, a little hot. Lot of good hop flavor for a barley wine

ogivlado (6428) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 6, 2015
Bottled 650ml. -at Svijet Piva Zagreb. Brown coloured, small to medium sized off-white head, alcohol and caramel in the nose. Sweet malty, alcoholic, dried fruits and light spicy with rather sweet finish. Not the freshest version and not one of my favorite style and even a way to sweet. Bad luck Crunkle Sam.

Tmoney99 (12071) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle. Poured hazy light brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy dark fruit, citrus and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate to heavy complex sweet flavor with a medium to heavy complex sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is was a solid beer.

dslam (95) - surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2015
Poured from a bottle. Dark orange color with 1 finger of off white head. Significant amount of sediment that dances around in the carbonate bubbles. Nice citrus aroma with under tones of caramel malts. Good taste on the first sip. The citrus flavor with carbonation makes it feel light and refreshing while the sweetness and weight slowly settle onto the pallet.
