SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 26, 2010
On tap at the conceited beer geek taproom next door to the brewery. Heavily oxidized cardboard aroma. Nail polish acetone flavors. Light in body with an awful esophageal burn. Lots of fusel alcohols. This is perhaps the worst barleywine that I’ve ever tasted.

sebletitje (7801) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 27, 2009
Tap @ brewery. Pours dark brown, with white head. Aroma strong dark fruit profile with nice roasted malts and sugar. Taste, was getting a lot of cooked pear/prune with caramel, thin chocolate body with some malts. Warming alcohol palate with a finish that is borderline barrel. A fine tasty barley wine.

hopscotch (10082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2008
Draft... Cloudy burnt orange ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. Sweet, vinous, fruity notes along with nibs of caramel waft up from the glass. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor is all caramel, maple syrup and tawny port sweetness buffered by moderate bitterness. Lengthy, malty, rich finish.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2008
Draft at brewery. Poured deep cloudy brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is malty and not as much hoppy as most barleywines. Notes of nuts, dark fruits also in the aroma. Tastes of dark fruits, walnuts, mild hop presence, and a bit of candi sugar and toffee. This is quite the drinkable barleywine that hides the alcohol well.

1FastSTi (3344) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 10, 2008
Tap at the brewery. Pours to a hazy mahogany body with a thin white head. The flavor is very malty. Notes of toffee and subtle peanuts/walnuts. American hops. The aroma is light and not very detectable. Subtle toffee. Unfortunate that it’s so light. The palate has a lingering bitterness with a creamy moderately full body.

Ibrew2or3 (7481) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 12, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2009 On tap at brewery. Pours clear deep copper with lasting off white head. The aroma is an inviting load of dark fruity esters. I get grapes, cherries and sweet plums. I also smell melanoidin malts, mild roasty malts and some pine hops. The taste experience starts very viscous as the fluid ushers in mild fruitiness cut by roasty malt, mild pine hop bitterness and faint citrus hops. The fruitiness is a punch bowl full of cherries and dark grapes that become more raisin and prune like toward midway. I get a representation of fruit, roasted malts and hops into the after taste. It isn’t too hoppy or fruity for the style. I’d love to re-rate it with some age on it . . . maybe a year or so.

May, 09. A year and a half later this beer is getting pretty darn amazing. I have been getting a rich river of caramel coming forward that wasn’t there before. The mild fruity esters are blending together and mixing with the roasted malts. Wow!
