Pours a dark amber. Head was thin at first...then it began to fall like a Guiness. Pillowy off-white head. Very sticky...each sip leaves a ring around the glass. Aroma is strong with malt, caramel and brown sugar, and a little resiny. Powerful and sweet, but not cloying. Tastes like biscuits covered in caramel and vanilla and finishes with a mild piney bitterness. Very thick feel. I would have called it a barleywine.

Deep , amber color . Big off-white head. Malt dominates in aroma with pine ,and some spices on background. Hops dominate in taste with malt on background. Strong , hoppy bitterness in aftertaste.

Bottle pour into pint glass from Globe Drug. Aroma is strong caramel with alcohol--similar to barleywine. Appearance is hazy orange-brown with off-white head, nice sparkle and trace lacing. Taste is strong caramel with alcohol. Palate is medium bodied with slippery texture, soft carbonation and pleasant warm feeling in the stomach and sweet fruity/floral alcohol finish. Bitterness is experienced in the back of the mouth/teeth rather than aroma/taste. Overall, I might doubt my rating a little since this is likely a little old (is there any other kind from Globe Drug?) but the consistency with other ratings tells me this is more on than off. A nice sipping beer--strong with copious caramel maltiness and the alcohol comes through, but in a nice way. But, with the balance toward the malty side rather than hoppy, this suggests to me that it was a bit old.

Stuedmaster (325) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 5, 2015
This smells and tastes more like a barleywine than a Double IPA, which others have noted. From bottle, dark amber pour with a medium off white head. Aroma of spicy rye, pine, caramel, toffee, resin, and grapefruit. Potent sweet caramel and toffee are balanced by herbal and resinous hops, boozy and strong, fruity flavors. Medium body, oily texture, light carbonation. Easy to drink for 10% abv. Well done, a unique strong ale, would repeat.

Dark amber with a little haze and a medium beige head. Aroma of pine and sweet caramel malt. Aptly named, sweet flavor with a nice hoppy finish.

Dark, clear amber pour, off white head. Spicy, pepper fragrance. Very smooth and drinkable. This one kinda jumped into my cart. Excellent brew!

crossovert (10305) - Illinois, USA - JUL 22, 2015
355ml bottle. Amber pour. Sweet and boozy nose like a barleywine, some rye and light smoke. Falvor is sweet and malty, has a lot of fruit flavors, some grand mariner, a decent bitterness. I would consider this a rye barleywine, this brewery really needs to work on their aormas though, their beers smell bad then end up tasting better than expected.

colui72 (488) - HONG KONG - JUN 27, 2015
Beautiful dark amber with minimal beige head. Strong fruity aroma, rye malts. Taste adds more fruit, caramel and more bitterness for the hoppy finish. Very good.

ajnepple (4370) - Colorado, USA - JUN 20, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2015 12 oz single bottle from Molly’s Spirits into a stemless wine glass. Reddish amber and clear appearance with a small, lingering beige head, light patchy lacing and active carbonation. Aroma of light resinous hops, pine, earth, caramel, toffee, bread, light rye spice, toasted grain and a touch of cinnamon. Similar flavor, the medium hop bitterness is balanced well by moderately sweet malts and light to mild rye spiciness. Medium to full body with a pleasant mouth experience and a light dry, lasting bitter finish. All in all, it works pretty well. It has good aromatics, a pretty clean flavor and a nice mouth feel. It also hides the alcohol well and is pretty fun to sip on. Nicely done. Pairing: Big Head Todd and the Monsters - Bittersweet

Christpuncher (2388) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Strong rue backbone with a lot of malt and hopps for the finish. Smells like rye and grass. Bitter dry finish. Pours red with a thin tan head. Had out of a bottle at home. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
