Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 23, 2011
Bottle at RBWG Grand Tasting 2011. Pours clear orange/tawny, thin pale tan head, no lacing. Nose is sweet marmalade and toffee, florals, orange blossom. Flavours of oranges, toffee, brandy, booze. This was fine enough, above-average for a Mexican brew, certainly!

(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.

Courtesy ChzMan. Amber/brown/ruby, minimal carbonation. Malt forward, fruity, sweet, lightly bitter on the finish. Subtle vegetal notes. Full body, balanced carbonation. Meh.

Rusty (1536) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 28, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2009 Bottle at The Big Pour in Mesa AZ. Pours a nice brown with a off white head. Aroma is caramel, malt, hops, brown sugar. Flavor is caramel, malt, brown sugar, hops, smooth and a little smoky. Pretty good barleywine and the best beer I’ve ever had out of Mexico. Re-rated from Cask at papago. Much warmer, no carbonation. Supple caramel, brown sugar, subdued hops, very smooth and silky. Great stuff.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Thanks ucusty. Copper colored with a tan head. Lots of caramel in the aroma as well as noticeable alcohol. Very boozy with caramel being about the only thing I pick up until a touch of smoke shows up near the finish. Interesting.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Bottle shared by alexanderj. A bit clear in appearance for a barleywine. Aroma is slightly aged malt, caramel vanilla and toast. The flavor is the same, subdued hops and nice sweetness.

On cask at Papago. While I agree with the last sentence of ajms review, I disagree with his high marks. This brew pours awfully dark for a barleywine and the sweetness isnt balanced. The char and breadcrust are nice, but this gringo thinks the caramel and maple syrup are just too dominant .

Thanks be to the Cheeseman. Strong malt. Deep amber color. Nice roast in the flavor. Nice finish.
