at GABBF 2012. Ok aroma, sweet. dried fruit, fig/date, tobacco, little citrus, on the grapefruit side. Clean oange brown color, small head, no lace. Sweet flavor. Medium body, creamy oily mouthfeel, bitter dry finish. Meh, not grabbing me, felt aroma clashed, flavor was dull, just my two cents

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Growler from the brewery. Deep dark amber with a small off white head. Aroma is dark caramel, dried cherries and some biscuits. Flavor is mostly sweet and malty... caramel, bread and burnt sugar, there is some hop bitterness in there too as well as a warming alcohol presence. Medium to full body with mild carbonation and a thick syrupy mouth feel that coats the mouth. Nice barley wine, kind of in between an English and American style.

pours a clear mahogany with a small light tan-yellowish head, and good lacing. smell is of malt, hops, fruit, and some caramel. taste is a little oily, malt, a little sweeter than most, fruit, and some caramel. ends a little tart and somewhat sweet on the tongue.

CampesinoTino (757) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Bomber. Brownish amber colored with a half-inch of tan foam. Mostly dark fruits, caramel malt and brown sugar in the aroma. Flavor is predominately caramel, dates and malt at the start along with some prune, molasses, raisin and resiny hops bitterness. Also a noticeable bourbon-like alcohol presence in the background. The body is thick and syrupy with naturally soft carbonation and more dark sugars and booze in the finish. Lots of complex flavors to chew on even if it is a bit rough around the edges.
