Bottle from the old man. Amber with a nice tight off white head. Aroma is malty, light caramel, dried fruit, burnt sugar. Taste is dried fruit, lightly malty, mild alcohol, very mild roastiness in the background. Lacks complexity, but still good.

GIJOE (1089) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Pours an off-orange brown with a thick, pillowy yellowish tan head. Nose is like fruitcake: a little booze, some citrus and dried fruits, and malt. Taste is pretty complex, layers of all of the above with a good, bitter, mildly grassy hop component Medium body; lively carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the First St. Alehouse. It pours an amber/copper color with a creamy orange head. The aroma is very fruity with some cherry, plum and orange. Moderate maltiness. The flavor is pretty much the same with lots of fruit, a solid piney, earthy bitterness and strong alcohol presence. Mouthfeel is a bit weak for the style. Pretty standard barleywine.

Tap at the brewpub. Pours darkly ruddy with a beige head. Malty aroma. Med + body. Flavor is balanced hop/malt. Brown sugar is well under control. Heat not bothersome. Nice to drink.

IrishBoy (4112) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JAN 13, 2013
12 oz bottle from bytemesis who got it at El Toro. Label says El Toro Yo Winter Brew labeled with print in top margin saying BREW 1590. Nose is bubblegum, light pine resin, sweet toffee, and floral. Lightly hazy cherry wood brown with a medium, lightly lacing, beige head. Flavor is moderately sweet toffee with some dark fruitiness and a very light bitterness. Very smooth and drinkable. Finishes with a hint of bitter and alcohol warmth.

Tap. Pours clear deep amber, medium creamy off white head, great lacing. Aroma is quite light with notes of toffee, dried fruit, citrus. Flavor is the same, light sweet, very light bitter, medium warming finish. Light-medium body, creamy.
