Holiday Ale Fest 08... Poured hazy amber with a beige head. Fruity and floral aroma. Silky palate that left a little bit of a syrupy residue on the tongue. Sweet alcohol with hops, malt, and a clean sweet finish.

Not quite to style for a barley wine. SRM was more like a pale than a Barleywine. A little more hops than you’d expect. But for a NW style BW, it’s pretty darn good. A sweet malt and hop aroma, wonderful full, candy, and uber-smooth mouthfeel. Taste was abundant yet balanced!

Pours hazy golden with eggshell head. Malty aroma has strong hard candy note. Flavor has malty, hoppy, fruity and bourbon-like tones. Texture is firm and smooth, if not overly fizzy

Sampled at Toronado 2009 Barleywine Festival. Pours slightly hazy deep gold with thin off white head. It has a pleasing aroma of dark fruity esters and toffee/butterscotch that works well here. I also get mild roasted malts too. The taste is much the same with a pulse of dark fruity esters followed by toffee and butterscotch that quickly becomes too much by midway. It becomes smooth and dry into the finish. The toffee is a bit too much for me right now, likely based on some palate fatigue.

Interesting barleywine, comparing the barrel aged and regular is interesting. The bourbon barrel was really strong, heavy bourbon takes it over. Lots of citrus still comes through, sort of candy like sweetness to the fruity flavor up front.

Draft. Amber beer with an off-white head. Hoppy pine aroma with sweet malt. Caramel and brown sugar flavor with sweet malt and pine backing. Medium-plus bodied. Caramel and pine lingers with some earthiness and slight citrus.

3 oz. sample on tap at Brouwer’s Café for Hard Liver, pours light golden. Aroma of pine and citrus hops, light caramel – bitter notes dominate the nose. Flavour is hoppy with caramel, light fruits, light oaky and bourbon notes. Very nice.

Draft at sb. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber with bright golden brown edges. Sweet honey, vanilla, bourbon, and oak on the nose. Sticky thick body with soft carb. Caramel, toffee, honey, and apricot on the mid palate. Much mellower and more harmonious than it was a few months ago.
