Bottle from South Bay Drug. Pours a brilliant reddish orange copper color - like a jewel. The beige/tan head started respectable, but went while I typed this. Big aromas of malt and fruit. All mixed together. Full bodied with mild carbonation. Rather fluffy. There’s some heat up front. It starts a bit sweet, then goes astringent. Light smoke. Touch of treacle. Not a lot of hop in the finish. Surely fits the style though. A good sipper.

brokensail (9940) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Pours a copper color with a small tan head. Sweet and fruity on the nose with plenty of caramel, sugar, and toffee. A light toastiness, some floral hops, and a hint of alcohol. The flavor has a mild bitterness, alcohol, and lots of malt notes. Some toasted bread, caramel, and toffee notes. A light fruitiness to the beer, which I find enjoyable. Not bad, but not my favorite either.

hopscotch (8540) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2009
Bottle... Clear copper ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. The aroma is chock full of toffee with more subtle, accompanying notes of roasted cashews, ethanol and chocolate. Full-bodied and a touch creamy with moderate carbonation. The flavor lays forth minerally, earthy bitterness, crystal malt, medium sherry and a good dose of ethanol heat. Lengthy, bitter, very warming finish. Thanks go out to bu11zeye for shipping this bottle my way!

JoeMcPhee (8212) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 31, 2009
Bottle shared at a recent tasting, but things are pretty fuzzy at this point. Deep rich aroma with a soft lovely cocoaish flavour and a bit of light smokiness. Very rich and sweet with lots of nice toastiness. A touch of light cherryish flavour. Rich caramel and cocoa with a light brown sugar flavour. Earthy and toasty with a bit of soft caramel and rich lingering fruit. This is a really lovely barleywine.
