Pours copper with a reddish color to it. The head retention is nice but fades to hug my glass and left a fine layer of foam. The aroma is of sweet buttery toffee, some vanilla, brown sugar, a touch of dark fruit, and a good malted grain character. In tasting I noticed a mild bitterness that lingers. I picked up on a blend of sugary malts, some pleasant hop bitterness, booze, and a touch of dark fruit. Overall this beverage had nice body and a balance of flavors.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a clear copper color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of dry caramel malt with grainy notes. Taste is also dominated by caramelized malt notes with some cereal and grainy notes. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Glad somebody tried to do a barleywine that is not reliant on hops or huge amount of residual sugars. Malt base could be refined but still an enjoyable beer.

bottle from kihoskh.color is quite brown, dark brown, head is nutty light brown, very dark for a barley wine. Althouh from ohio, this one is brewed european style and with european ingredients. aroma of caramel, toffee and malts. Flavor is spicy, malty, toffee, bitter caramel, cocoa powder, quite dry and dark chocolateish for a bw. in fact, i’d call this an american strong ale, something a bit more generic. alc. is well hidden.
