jsporrer (307) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2015
Poured from a bottle. Cloudy orange-brown with a thin off white ring. Has a tart-sour, sharp fruity aroma. Light carbonation. Body is a little thick and almost syrup like. Fairly smooth with a dry and slightly bitter taste that stays mainly on the roof of the mouth. Some woody and earthy notes. Hides the alcohol well. No harsh aftertaste or burn. Nice warmth after the finish. OK but I would have preferred more flavor and less bitterness.

rumproasts (4466) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Tap. Amber with small head. Caramel malt with dry citrus hoppiness, very low bitterness. Not very boozy. Seems pretty average.

danlo (2016) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2015
1 pt 6 fl oz bottle. Deep reddish-orange brown amber colour, creamy off-white foam head leaving spotty lacing and aroma of caramel, orange marmalade, pine, hop resins. Taste is sweet, malt caramel, floral citrus, fruity, hoppy, woody pine, earthy bitter. Smooth mouthfeel, medium carbonation, soft carbonation, warm slight grassy bitter finish. Nicely drinkable.

bbbeer (635) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 18, 2015
Deep red-brown, small tan head. Aroma citrus and pine hops. Full body. Some alcohol presence. Fairly sweet but the finish is on the drier side. I think a good balance of hops and malt. Solid.

leghorn99 (193) - Livorno, ITALY - NOV 14, 2015
Versa nel bicchiere di color arancio scuro, leggermente velato; la schiuma Ť sottile, densa e leggera, ma costante durante tutta la bevuta. Líaroma Ť di caramello, malto, melassa, luppolo, agrumi, alcool e frutta. Al palato si distingue chiaramente sapore di malto e caramello, con note agrumate e di luppolo. Eí molto dolce, poco carbonata, con corpo viscoso; in bocca rimane oleosa, finale da Imperial IPA grazie alla forte presenza di luppolo.

Ratman197 (12148) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 20, 2015
Bomber poured a hazy reddish amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of caramel, toffee, dried fruit and light sherry. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of toffee, caramel, light fruitiness and a hint of yeast with a smooth lingering toffee finish.

SG111 (810) - New York, USA - SEP 11, 2015
Tap at Clubhouse BFD. Pours dark murky brown. Small off white head. Aroma is intense malt, plum, toffee, dark fruits. Intense malt up front. Amazing. Mild citrus at best. Flavor is sweet malt, fig, burnt sugar. Really good. The hops add a nice bitter kick at the end. Solid Barleywine. Does not disappoint, but itís mostly on the malt spectrum.
