On tap at the Tipsy Cow in Madison. Hazy orange with thin head. Aroma of oak, booze, dark fruit. Amazing taste, I mean wow. Caramel, fig, molasses, bourbon, oak, some floral hops, candied sugar. Sweet, bourbon, oak finish. Slightly warming. This was impressive

Bottle from Tipples. Pours orange with a small off white head. Aroma of booze, sweet caramel, figs, fruits. Big and sweet. Flavor is also huge sweetness, fruit flavors, honey and caramel, booze, and a little more booze. Heavy bodied, medium carbonation, hot on the throat. This was decent enough I guess. Wouldnít pay the $5 or $6 again for a bottle again though.

Light reddish orange body. Medium fast dissipating head. Has that dogfish head smell. Fruity fig aroma. Very fruity tasting for a barleywine.

This is a very strong beer. You almost have to chew it. Very malty and delicious, but also very strong. Not much hops to it. I did drink it very fresh though and have a couple bottles to age, so Iím excited to see what happens to it.

Hazy orange or copper pour with minimal head. Aroma is sweet dark fruit. Taste is the same. Not overwhelming. Pleasant.

It pours a hazy caramel color with a tinge of orange with a vibrant off white head. It has the smell of caramel, figs, dried fruits, that is all sweet. The sweet fruit taste is prominent at first with a surprisingly fair amount of carbonation. It has quite an alcohol punch with a warming trend on the way down.

Incredible fruity aroma of apricots doused in sugar. Has a foamy head and golden amber color. Rich sweet caramel malt flavor. Yum. Love this beer.

Bottle at home. Poured amber with very little foam. Aroma shows the high alcohol content with some citrus too. Taste like dried dates, vanilla and a hint of licorice. A tangy flavour lingers for a while. Medium body, not sticky like I was expecting. Very good.
