Nate (3708) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2007
On tap. Honey sweet aroma, with cherry-almond biscuit notes and Graham cracker. No hops. Golden-orange clear with off-white head. Medium-heavy watery body with medium-heavy carbonation. Starts sweet with big malty profile and some Graham cracker taste. Light drying hops toward the finish, mild alcohol warming, and dry nutty after. Decent ale but not very complex. Good balance of malt and bitter, though

About average. Not too good but by no means bad.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2011 On tap at the Cranberry H&H near Pittsburgh PA. Pour is just a little darker than your typical pale yellow beer, maybe even a bit orange. Has a cramy white head and I don’t really notice too much strong barleywine aroma as with many other barleywines I’ve tasted. Taste is initially very strong with a high alky impact. I am not dissapointed, just like any other barleywine impact. Seems to have a strong alky personality that is in your face, again as expected for a barleywine. The head eventually fades to a slight froth. The taste is bitter, probably due to the alky content. In the description it says that 50 pounds of brown suger is added during the brew. I guess most of these barley wines must add sugar to get the desired effects. Very bitter alky offnsive finish. Barleywines are just too strong for my girlie taste buds.
