750 ml bottle brought back from Arizona thanks to Eric. Pours a dark brown color with a large beige head. A very sweet malty nose; lots of caramel, rich dry malts. The taste is similarly dominated by a huge malt and caramel presence; somewhat dry and very tasty. Not too much hops, more English than American for sure. A nice sweet flavor with a good mouthfeel.

750, foiled and capped. Thanks, RiversideAK! What a trip to get to try this one. Crystal clear rubied medium amber. Headless. Laceless. Tangy, doughy, slightly fruity nose. Creamy, slightly stickym fairly flat body. Smoky, caramelly mid-palate. Mild, dark, tobacco-y, leather-y mid-palate. Very complex and approachable, if not much in the way of offering anything new.

Pours brown with a thin white head. Smells of caramel, chocolate, some raisins, figs. Tastes roasty and layered with some fruity hints, molasses, some peaty hints. Very unusual and enjoyable.

Reddish brown pour with a big tan head. Aroma is very malty and sweet with toffee and lots of ripe fruit. Similar flavors, very sweet, almost cloying with bit of booze and a floral finish.

Red amber with a medium sized, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of dried fruits, oxidation, caramel malts, nuts, citrus, toast, floral hops, and alcohol. Taste of pine, citrus, dark fruits, vanilla, tobacco, caramel malts, and alcohol in the finish.

kramer (5213) - 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.

Thanks to mkgrenwel for this - medium amber pour, fairly clear - a lot of bright fruitiness in the nose, with a hint of smoke - leads with some rich spiciness, moderate sweetness, and a lot of cherry-like fruity esters - brown sugar, earthiness, fairly present smoke - quite tasty, and the smoke really adds a lot of character, and makes this beer distinct - nice.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 3, 2009
Thanks to Notalush for sharing at his last tasting. Moslty clear amber with a thin lasting head. Aroma is orange zest, citrus and fruity esters sweetish crystal malts. Flavor has some slight phenolic yeastiness, light plastic with an herbal turing earthy character and even some dirty weediness with the citrus like hops. Ok sweetness throughout and a moderately smooth finish. Ok BW.
