I didnít enjoy this beer very much. It was OK. It was cloudy and almost good. What does that mean, I donít know. It was on my sheet though.

The overpresence of alcohol was my turnoff for this beer.

Got Stout? (173) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 24, 2001
A low masking of the alcohol taste and the overall thinness of the beer really depleated my score. Great woodsy aroma.

An overwhelming alcohol taste.

Drew Blood (151) - Mt.Prospect, Illinois, USA - SEP 18, 2001
My kind of beer. Strong and sweet. Lots of maple and malt. I did not really notice the ísmokedí character, that much. Easy drinking but incredibly overprice, at least in the Chicago market.

Immort ale pours smooth and has the brown colouring of strong tea. It produces a nice frothy yet small head that has some degree of glass cling and lace. The aroma is very alcoholic, although mixed therein are some fruity smells such as oranges and hints of maple. Immort Ale is silky and slightly heavy in mouthfeel and body. It begins with a very woody taste leaning toward sweetness and ends with a smokey/roasted character that lingers for a while. This beer carries a high ABV which it does not do a good job hiding as some other brews (like Dogfish Headís World Wide Stout). I enjoyed this beer quite a bit. However, if it were brewed just for me I would of liked a slightly hoppier finish to balance out the maltiness and intense smokiness.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - SEP 15, 2001
Wow! Wonderful clear bronze color and minimal head, which is to be expected with this much alcohol. Molassas and malt aromas foreshadow a molassasy, malty and oaky flavor. Some hops on the nose with good bitterness. Alcohol is also prevelant. The palate is tremendous. Maybe Iím in the minority, but I thought this was a very clean and pleasant barleywine which I will definitely be trying again.

fraternie (843) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2001
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2003 Amber body, sweet oakey aromas. Syrupy body, complex notes of sweet vanilla, honey, a touch of smoke, and some maple dominate the malt. Moderately hoppy, moderately alcoholic, slightly sweet finish. Complex brew.

Delbomber (387) - Philadelphia, USA - AUG 30, 2001
Complex bouquet, featuring pink grapefruit, cantaloupe, hops and possibly figs. Biting, warming alcohol quality, with molasses and vanila flavors easily discernable, while slightly smoky and malty. Alcohol and hops aftertaste, reminding me somewhat of Westmalle Trippel, but better.

fishman (350) - Philadelphia, USA - AUG 30, 2001
Dark brown, very alcoholic aroma and taste. Matly with maple syrup pervading, tastes an awful lot like Southern Comfort.
