One pint, 6 oz. bottle pours a dark amber into a thick foamy tan head which mostly dissipates into heavy lacings that melt down the glass. Aroma of roasted caramel malts and sweet citrusy hops. Initial flavor of spice, creamy malts and sweet citrus quickly fading into full bodied bitter piney and flowery hoppy finish.

Pours a potent, deep sunset color that seems to glow with a luminescence of its own. This is an impressive barley wine. I agree, this and their Yeti Stout make them an un-ignorable brewery.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Flaska från 2011. Vid försiktig upphällning får man en otroligt vackert rödbrun, klar vätska med en tätt skum; längre ner i flaskan grumlar det sedan till sig. Doften är kraftig och vinös med läcker sötma av mörka bär och pomeransmarmelad. Fyllig och vinös smak med diverse söta frukter som rundas av med kraftig pomerans och grapebeska. En mycket smakrik barley wine där sötman balanseras av en kraftig beska.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz into tumbler and stein. 2 finger thick light brownish yellow head. very long lasting head but not a large amount of carbonation, just enough to keep a good thick aromatic head around for a while. Beautiful look to it with an apricot hazy amber color. smells of some citrus and lots of barley with a bit of roasty toastiness which could be partly from the noticeable but not heavy alc smell. Pretty thick on the mouth with bready barley and hops also a little sour at the back of the palate. delicious beer that i highly recommend. drinkability is not too great which goes along with most expressions of this style. overall 8.5 out of 10.

Gotta love Great Divide...First time for me tasted with Matt from Silver City. Huge grapefruit/citrus note on opening, dissipating during the half hour following. Caramel, copper colored, medium sweetness, medium bitterness, tasted @ 62°F from the bottle.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours mahogany with a pillowy head and thick lacing. Aroma is very malty and very hoppy. Caramel malt, brown sugar, piney, citrus, pungent. Flavor is thickly sweet with plenty of hops to back it up. Caramel, toast, pine resin, citrus fruit, dark dried fruit, and booze fill the flavor with some other flavors hard to describe adding to the complexity. Full bodied, rather low co2. Excellent beer in every way. Definitely in my top 5 favorite beers.

Bottled on Dec 2011, pours a rusty amber color with a small white head, lacing all around the glass. Nose is slightly sweet and fruity, a slight funkiness smell too. Taste great! Sweet at first with a nice hop bitterness on the end. Great brew! I’d love to age a few of these!

Poured a dark ruby red with a medium white head. Aroma is hoppy w/ grapefruit, pine oranges and sweet malt.. Tast follows suit with a heavy hoppy, pine and orange flavor.. It has a good balance of sweetness going with the hoppy flavor and a medium alcohol finish.. Good barley Wine!! .
