mcberko (6270) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle at Sour & Bitter #2, pours a deep dark amber with a tiny beige / tan head. Aroma of deep dark fruits, subdued red wine barrels, caramel, and a bit of residual sugar. Flavour of perfume, red wine barrels, caramel, and some residual sugars. There is a bit of sweetness, but also a pronounced dryness. The barrels are used quite well, offering a dry vinous quality to it. Not the most complex or elegant, but enjoyable for what it is. Solid stuff.

Bottle shared with RB crew. Pours a thick murky brownish black body with no head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, dark fruits, raisins, chocolate and wood. Mouthfeel is medium to full with rich notes of molasses, maple, chocolate, oak, sweet malt, vanilla and dark fruit. I thought this was a wonderful barley wine.

jbeatty (1020) - New York, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle at Torst, 03/30/2013. Pours dark plum brown, little head with large bubbles floating on the surface. Aroma of roasted dark chocolate, caramel candy, musty malty sweetness, wood. Taste is sweet, chocolate coffee, light roast bitterness, vanilla, sweet barrel notes. Full bodied and smooth, alcohol not noticeable. Very nice, darker and more straightforward than the Back Room, still delicious.

8 oz draft at Tørst, poured in a White wine glass. The pour is a deep brown, almost black with a think one inch khaki head that was firm and lasting. The aroma is big sweet malt, roast, almost char, and a decent amount of alcohol booziness. The taste is big on the sweetness, which shows as more of a chocolate caramel in the taste, though the more traditional malt sweetness is present as well. I also pick a wood - grain type flavor which is a bit hard to describe. The big booze is present, particularly in the lingering finish. The palate is medium to heavy bodied, though the mouth feel has some slickness which lightens the finish considerably. Low carbonation rate, and of course the sweet alcohol heat. I am not a huge fan of big, boozy sweet beers, and this was certainly one of them.

Draught. Dark brown to black opaque pour. Small white head. Malty maple syrup smell. Malt dark fruit- like a strong doppelbock. Very good

dogfishho (588) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Pours very dark mahogany with a small wispy yellow head. The aroma is filled with raisins, crem brûlée, chocolate, caramel, apricot, and cedar. The mouthfeel is decadent but somehow light. Super well balanced. On the palate it is sweet and rich. Yum. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
