Hazy deep amber - brown beer. Light malt nose. Semi soft palate, a little dry. Malty bitter toffee, followed by pretty bitter hop. A little aniseed alcohol underneath. Subtle black fruits in the finish which is soft and warming and with a trace of bubblegum. A few too many rough edges for me.

Pours an opaque amber with a medium tan head. Aroma has caramely malts and light earthy tea notes. Flavor is hoppy...earthy tea...caramely malt...light fruitiness. Mouthfeel is medium full with a bitter earthy/fruity finish.

Nightsky (176) - Lutz, Florida, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Aroma is citrus like and sweet. Slightly hazy, golden brown color. Citrus taste with an immediate bitterness that lingers for a bit. Good middle of the week beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not the best barleywine I've ever tasted, but decent. Smell is hoppy and sickly sweet, like some new style IPAs. Thick frothy palate that hides the high ABV. Taste is actually light, with a bitter finish.

On tap at the Full Sail Tasting Room & Pub in Hood River, OR. I was poured the 2011 version. Dark orange pour with a light off-white head. Aroma of tangerine, caramel, and brown sugar. Light floral aromas as well. Citrus hops noted first but then an assertive malt backbone greets the tongue. Whiskey-like finish. Medium bodied. A good barleywine.

Bomber. Smooth, complex and balanced. Rich malty flavors with mild bitterness. Carbonation is just right. Finish is thick and sweet with some pine and alcohol. Tasty.

The aroma is malty and alcoholic with plenty of hops. The appearance is light amber with an average head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall this is good.

this beer has a strong alcohol in raw strength. the taste of the malts and hops are in pretty good balance while neither side is overly dominate. the malts have a slight toasty flavor.

You definitely want to drink this beer at room temp, chilled the smell and taste of alcohol was very strong. As it warmed up it was much smoother and more malty.
