The aroma is very boozy with caramel and butterscotch. The appearance is amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma the palate is smooth. Overall this is a great beer.

The beer is a step above to what a double beer should be. Has a thick syrup palate and with a rich flavor with grain and fruit flavors. Rich but but not too bitter.

Draft at the Brewery Tasting Room The ale poured a clear golden color with a small off- white head and limited lacing. The aroma was complex with sweet bourbon and oak. The taste of ale and hints of bourbon are perfect. The medium body ale had average carbonation. The higher alochol was well deguised. At the finish you have buttery bourbon with some bitter citrus. Great beer.

Looks like unfiltered cognac. Thin white ring around the glass for head. Tastes like caramel. Smells like caramel, water and wood. Smooth for its strength, but just too caramelly sweet to realistically enjoy. This guy behind me just said its aged in "barley wine barrels" for ten years. I think heís as full of shit as I am.

22oz bottle split with a friend. Extremely drinkable barley wine, and it just got better as it warmed.

Tap at Beer Authority. Deep amber pour. Intensely sweet malty nose. A bit of resinous American hops and a touch of plummy crystal malt as well. A bit of soft fruit and a nice malt base. Chewy and sweet but itís not cloying. Has a nice bit of bitterness rounding off the back. Chewy and fruity. Itís a very tasty barleywine.
