Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2010
Draft sample at MBG Winterfest 2010. Poured brown color with an average fizzy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy dark fruit, earthy hop and small alcohol aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy complex bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a very good complex beer.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 8, 2010
5th Annual MBG Winter Beer Festival, Grand Rapids. Murky orange-brown body, thin cream head. Bright, citrusy, grassy nose, floral. Resinous, citrusy, floral body, sweet, with a tangy wet grass/hay backbone. Oily, palate-coating beer. Bitter finish. Tasty.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2009
Cask at Brazen Head. Deep brown pour with a thin off-white head. The nose has a touch of light hoppiness. Fresh and citrusy with a lot of grapefruit and lemon peel. Tropical with a lot of mango and pineapple as well. Really fresh and hoppy smelling. The flavour is also quite hoppy with a kiss of wheaty spiciness on the back. Fairly herbal bitterness, but its really damn smooth I could drink a lot of this stuff.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - NOV 10, 2009
Cask at the Brazen Head: Hazy deep bronze/orange color with a creamy off white head that retains well. Juicy tropical fruit aroma- some peach, mango (Amarillo/ juicy U.S. hybrid hops) backed by a chewy crystal malt husk note. Creamy body with a fruity and juicy Amarillo flavor as well. Some citric orange peel with that sweet tropical fruit presence of peach and mango. The husky medium crystal back gives this brew a substantial body and I did not feel the alcohol at all. A rounded and juicy Barley Wine.
