Purchased at Wally’s in Los Angeles, CA; enjoyed while watching True Detective after a long day of venturing. Appearance is a bright cloudy gold with a large bubbly white head. Aroma is pretty light, with interesting floral notes. Taste is unique, large tropical fruit profile with sweet syrupy malt notes. It’s 10% ABV and masks it pretty well. Good stuff.

cards04 (1707) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 15, 2014
This is an awesome barley wine. pours a dirty sediment ridden marmalade color with a ton of soft foamy white head. The aromas coming off this are dizzying. Massive caramel at first, then sweet over ripe citrus. A bit of mango and papaya as well. Flavors are sweet and malty.. Vanilla, grand marnier, citrus, caramel.. and all things good. Finishes warm and boozy. A first rate barley wine.

Very good beer, but a little alcohol forward for the style. And I hardly ever think that...

Pours golden-brown and cloudy with a thick light tan head. Aroma is a nice balanced blend of hops and malts. Taste is exactly the same. The hops and maple syrup flavors lead quickly to some rye inspired malts that then slides into a long bitter finish. Overall, it is rustic and very flavorful.

Ataraxia (361) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Clear amber color, almost no lacing at all. Subtle aroma of sugarcane, grape, pear, brown sugar, damp pine needles, and rich loam. Dry, tannic bitterness with a surprising depth of flavor. Smooth and medium-bodied with a lingering bitter finish. Mild to moderate booziness

John25 (434) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Pours bronze around the outside with a deep orange center and a large cream colored head. The aroma is citrus, orange juice, tangerine, and sweet sugar with a touch of pine. The taste is clean and hoppy initially with a spicey kick on the back end. The malts really shine on this one and create balance all around. The palate varies from light and clean at times to medium with a sugary candy coating. The carbonation is high. Excellent and complex all around without being overwhelming - total balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 fl.oz. bottle
Meine Flasche sagt "Batch 77". Voluminöse Schaumentwicklung. Orange-trüb-matschig im Glas. Toller zitrus-hopfiger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist sehr süß-klebrig, voluminös, frisch-herb. Zum Hauptteil wird das Bier noch etwas dickflüssiger, mild, hefig, leicht nach gelben Früchten, überreif. Dazu die omnipräsente alkoholische-scharfe Note. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang, alkoholisch-scharf, süß-klebrig-dickflüssig.
--> interessantes Bier. Für meinen Geschmack aber viel zu klebrig-süß und zu alkoholisch-scharf. Das geht bei 10% auch besser!
Test vom 21.2.2011, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,7,6,7,12,7 - 7,60
