3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, poured a copper red color with smaller head that dissipated a bit. Aroma is malt,hop, dark fruit, candy flavored. Med-lite sweetness and bitterness. Malty backbone with a bit of bitterness finish. Not bad, but there is better barley wines out there for sure.

12oz bottle, backyard birthday style porno poor
Appearance - Clean amber, silky lacing
Aroma - Honey, hops, sweet oranges
Taste - Cherries, dried oranges, nutty, toffee, bitter hops
This beer was heavy as hell and fun to drink. Aggressively complex with surprisingly well hidden alcohol attributes. This one will only get smoother as it ages.

Didnít seem very creative, more like an imperial ipa on steroids. Boozy, deep amber, some sweet dark fruit, mostly boost.

Tap at rattle & hum. Ruby with a thin off-white head. Nose is interesting, spicy, coriander, malt. Mouth is warm, dusty, warm, sweetness, but red wine characteristics and oak comes through the more the flavour progresses. This beer has benefited being laid down. End is vanilla, red wine, enjoyable, good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beautiful reddish copper color. Creamy head as well. Fruity alcohol aromas. Ripe bananas and apples. Clean fruity flavor with some ripe banana notes and alcohol esters as well. Overall, this is fairly drinkable, or the 10% ABV is becoming normal to me so itís not as noticeable. You know what... buy it and drink it. Thank me later...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours orangey/red with a foamy 1-finger light beige head. Aromas of citrus peel, slight juniper, caramel, and berry. The flavor is orangepeel, pine, and alcohol-soaked cherries. The aftertaste is cherry with bitter grass. Thick, full-bodied mouthfeel, and warming, with evident alcohol. Alright, but Triticus was better.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a red orange with bright orange highlights and a small white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, raw dough, cough medicine, soap, floral hops and a slight pine background. Tastes pretty similar with a mix of caramel toffee, earthy bitterness, slight white chocolate, soapy hops and medicine. Finishes with an "American" amount of bitterness. With an earthy and soapy aftertaste. This could be a decent beer, but the hops come off so damn chemically itís distracting! Medium bodied for the style, heavy otherwise, with an over-filtered texture. At least itís a good price.

Sweet like a pear! Got this on draught at maxs after a long day of bball, squash, and being target practice for a soccer match! Pours a orangey golden color. Tastes fairly sweet with a few bitter hops mixed in at the end. Smells like sugary sugar bush with some tree blossoms thrown in there.
