Our interpretation of this English style ale is deep garnet red in color with a distinct malt backbone balanced by a unique blend of hops. Cheers!

Aroma solid, clean malts , caramel , rich fee;/ Nice hop top end. Balanced pleasing set up. 8-.
Appearance clear amber with medium top.
Flavor and Palate : full bodied. malty with caramel side . Alcohol warmth. Very true to the style. Not too bold, not too hoppy. Proper example of American Barley Wine.

My bottle [12oz] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus. Pours a cloudy orange-amber with a snowstorm of sediment and a small diminishing frothy white head. Aroma of caramel malt, somewhat bready, along with floral hops, dark fruit and a bit of alcohol. Fruity flavour (grapes, apples and more) along with bready malt, alcohol, floral hops and a bitter, boozy finish, almost harsh. Medium bodied. Quite good but Iím glad I shared it, itís a bit boozy and harsh -- I liked it though. -- Rated via Beer Buddy.

Bottle shared with the team at work on our last day on madison ave. Pours a clear amber orange body. Aroma is sweet caramel malts, barley and sweet booze. Mouthfeel is slick with notes of booze and sweet malts. The beer seems to be a bit unbalanced.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 17, 2011
Pours ruby red with a tan head. Smells of dark fruit, some resiny notes, toffee, cognac, some warming alcohol presence. Tastes fruit with some toffee and molasses notes. Resiny elements emerge as the beer warms. Enjoyable.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 23, 2011
Bottle:   Deep amber, fiery copper hue, thin to moderate tannish head, spotty lacing.   Sweet bready nose, slightly bananaish, touch of band-aid albeit its minor.   Almost a sweetish cherry or fruity cough syrup.   Citrusy, a little band-aid and plastic like on the back.   Smooth mouthfeel, moderate body.   Sweet finish, makes up for the band-aid and slight plastic.   Still was enjoyable.   Thanks Keith!

12oz bottle shared by blankboy with me and garthicus. Deep copper-amber pour, smallish diminishing off-white head, tons of tiny floaties. Sweet pungent boozy aroma, sharp cereal grain. Taste follows, but weirdly it works- and a lot of fruit. Light, slick mouthfeel, a bit hot and dry with dry floral bitterness and drying alcohol in the finish.

In short: A strong but smooth amber ale with strange spiciness and stale water. Meh.
How: Bottle 12oz, consumed a few months after purchase.
The look: Partly cloudy golden-amber body topped by a medium off-white head.
In long: Nose is sweet pastry, moldy bread, stale water, dog fur, unexpected herbal spiciness along with some strange cinnamon-like notes. Taste is soft soggy bread, soft pastry, cereals grain, caramel, sweetness under control, some alcohol warmth, spicy candy, herbal spiciness, dry leafy hops. Becomes hard to separate the herbal spiciness sensation from the grassy/herbal hops. Spiciness and stale water in the comeback. Very pleasant mounthfeel with a comfortable full pillowy texture. A few things I didnít like in this beer but it doesnít really matter because overall this beer wasnít very tasty at all More an inoffensive boozy beer than anything else. It was easy to drink the full bottle although it not something I want to have again. Another Harpoon Leviathan I should not have bought, I keep forgetting that these beers always disappoint me, my memory is as bad as those NASCAR drivers who need to be reminded at each race to start their engines.

12oz bottle pours a hazy, burnt orange with some creamy, white head. Nose is kind of trashy, dried orange, malt, toast, cardboard. Flavor is malty, orange, cardboard, a little herbs, some trash. I think itís just too damn old.
