3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Kuhnhenn. Hazy orange with a slight amber hue, small off-white head, decent lacing. Aroma is sweet with caramel and not much else going on. Flavor matches unfortunately. It is a decent barley wine, but not anything I want to go back to.
