UPDATED: FEB 18, 2008 2005 Bottle 590/600. Poured a lightly hazed amber color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma was malty and sweet with some earthy notes. Decent fruitiness and a hint of alcohol. Great balance. It smells big. The flavor was big and malty with fruity notes and a bitter backbone for balance. Dried fruits and dried peaches. Very warming. Huge and full bodied. Yum

2007 @ Dr. Billís. Poured a hazy amber color with an off-white head. Sweet malty aroma with mild hops. The flavor was sweet and sugary in the malt. The hops were mild but noticeable. Medium-full body (score reflects 2005 edition)

Batch 2006 bottled in February 2007. Shared with CMUBEERMAN et al.. Pours hazy ruby caramel, virtually no head. Aroma is taffee, cider, banana, apricot. Flavor is taffee, apricot, malt, hops, salami, caramel. The label on this bottle is quite charming and one of the best Iíve ever seen. I bought a bottle to cellar, but weíll see if it makes it. I may wind up drinking it soon, maybe this Tuesday on my wedding day.

Slightly hazey, amber body with a medium sized white head. The aroma is pine and caramel. The flavor is resinous pine and lots of astringent caramel. Medium/full body with fizzy carbonation, a sticky texture and a bitter,warm end.

Pailhead (4741) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2007
Bottle: Courtesy of Styles. The aroma consists of buttery caramel with hints of fruit and muted citrus hops. It pours a transparent amber with a small white head. The flavor starts with caramel and lots of residual sugar and muted citrus hops in the finish. Itís decent but I prefer more hoppy and less sweet Barley Wines.

HWOH 750 ml. Brought by the head brewer of East End. Thanks for bringing this! Pours a clear deep copper/light amber with a white lasting head and some nice lacing. Aromas of caramel, fruity esters, a bit hot in the alcohol, some spiced rum and medium hoppiness. Flavor is sweet, rum, light crystal malts, dried fruits and light brown sugar. Alcohol is noticed slightly most of the wya through, but it was very smooth, complex and should age very well due to the strength.
