S_Side_Smitty (457) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - FEB 8, 2014
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 (369) - 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

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

Erzengel (2607) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2014
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

12 oz bottle shared by Kevin among a few folks at Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach. Poured into a taster. Brown-orange in appearance with a few floaties despite a careful pour. A two-plus finger head forms, stays for a while, then leaves spots of lacing as it recedes. Aroma is caramel, vanilla, alcohol, dried pears, and apples. Taste, initially, is moderate sweetness with caramelized sugar and dried fruit notes. On the finish there is a citrus hop flavor, rye spiciness, and alcohol. Full body, thick, chewy, sticky texture, soft carbonation in the mouth which is strange after the bubble show on the pour, and a finish that is initially abruptly bitter and has a warming boozy tail.

Pours a amber out of bottle with a big creamy head. Aromas of citrus, malt and brown sugar. Taste is sweet malt and brown sugar with an assertive bitterness. Creamy and full body with medium carbonation. Very drinkable. Thanks Rob!

beerbaaron (1244) - Arizona, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Batch 85. 1/8/14. Pours a beautiful ruby dark orange amber. Amazing, large frothy creamy tan head, fully lasting with thick lace. Seems very fresh. Very aromatic. Aroma is rich, malty and hoppy, as I the flavor. Fruity, super ripe citrus, bit of pine, sugar, caramel. Just a touch of alcohol. Fantastic balance. Complex but not complicated. Perfectly moderate bitterness and just sweet enough to balance. Creamy, luscious, and smooth. Exceptional, and doesn’t have to be ’huge’ to do it..

Lectvay (133) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 6, 2014
Fairly light color for a barleywine, and lots of carbonation, looks and feels more like a saison, but full-bodied and strong, slightly medicinal. The flavor really explodes as soon as you take a sip.

Syndicate (89) - Idaho, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Poured dead flat. Beautiful golden color zero head. Smells great and of sweet date. It’s good but with carbonation it could be great. Beer is good , carbonated beer is better .
