kramer (4694) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2009
25 oz bottle, via WeeHeavySD. Pours a clear dark copper body with a small frothy beige head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is super heavy caramel and toffee maltiness with light alcohol and moderate resiny hops. The flavor is pretty one dimensional as Barley Wines go, tons and tons of toffee and brown sugar maltiness. Finishes with a bit of resiny hops and alcohol. A little bit harsh on the back end. Full and thick body with a little clinginess and light soft carbonation that doesn’t cut through the heaviness too well. Worth a try, but not something I’d seek out again.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - OCT 11, 2009
(750 ml bottle via trade with BMan1113VR, thanks Andrew!) Pours slightly hazy dark slightly reddish amber. A finger and a half of biege head. Aroma of light pine, candy-malt, caramel, vanilla and hint of licorice. Mouthfeel fairly full, fairly smooth, a touch sticky in finish. Some light dabs of lacing and a syrupy film. Flavor of big candy-malt and lighter toffee/caramel overlain by pine. A hint of smokiness and a bitter pinch in the finish. Some hints of chocolate and licorice on the back end as it warms. Warming and lightly hot. A nice, maltier example of the style.

Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a tan head. The aroma is very sweet with strong notes of malt and fruit as well as some alcohol. The flavor is very sweet with over ripe fruits, alcohol, that burns the tongue, caramel, and some malt, leading to an alcoholic burning finish.
