Bottle 33 cl 2 Kuhnhenn Warren, MI. Pours beautiful deep ruby copper with a nice tanned head leaving lace. Aroma is fullbodied sweet, malty, fruity, caramel, raisins, bready and fidges. Flavor is in front a sweet and malty with acetonic touch, on backmore tart bitter hoppy, sweet fruity, caramel and vinous. Quite nice indeed. Finishes vinous, tart bitter and fruity. Like this one, not too sweet, has nice vinous touch and with medium body still very drinkable.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear copper color with zero head to speak of. The nose has caramel sweetness with some resiny and herbal hops. The flavor had mild notes of caramel malt, resin, ripe fruits and light herbs. There is some mild bitterness to the finish. I was expecting the flavor to pop with this and it just didn’t happen. Some alcohol to the finish. Underwhelming.

On tap at Kuhnhenn; pour is medium gold with amber highlights. Off white head that does retain quite well; nice lacing in this glass as well; though comically the server poured it in a shaker. The nose is fruity, tropical fruits, apples; caramel, with a light hop profile. The flavor profile is at once creamy, bitter, sweet from the caramel and apple cider, with a touch of honey and tropical fruits. Honesty; a mediocre, drinkable american barley wine.

Oh man that is one intense brandy like aroma. Smooth and sweet on the uptake. A little bit of candy and fruit in there. Flavor and presence is a little more mellowed out. Not incredibly alcoholic which is nice. Seriously sweet with a molasses and toasty grain malt flavor. Finish is a little bitter and fruity but all in all it is pretty smooth and mild. Relatively quick on the finish. Incredible dessert beer.

On tap at the brewpub. Aroma: fruity, sucre d’orge, not overly hopped as your typical american barleywine. Appearance: Copper-gold pour, white head. Taste: Candy sweetness, light hop finish, brown sugar. Deliciously sweet. Overall: As opposed to the name, this is more of an english barleywine.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 6, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a viscous caramel brown with a small off white head. Big boozy nose with caramel, toffee and more booze. A bit cloying in the finish. Tasty but a bit overdone.

blipp (6326) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAY 10, 2011
Draft. Pours amber orange with a thin off white head. Citric hoppy aroma with sweet malts and fruity citric and limey notes. The flavor is very well balanced with sweet caramel malts and citric/floral hops. Nice.
