Resinous dark fruits in the aroma and taste. Mildly bitter and bready. Caramel and toffee. 2015 vintage. Should probably age this a bit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vaiz (3796) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle at home. Clear copper pour, thin off-white head. Aroma of fruity hops, caramel, some resin, pine and a hint of alcohol. Flavor is quite bitter, fruity, somewhat sweet. Huge body and very well balanced.

Austin_Ripper (49) - Iowa, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Pours a deep copper color with a off-white head. Smells sweet, bready and hoppy. Taste is sweet with a sort, bitter finish. A little boozy, but it doesn’t hit you in the face every time you drink it. My first barley wine, and I am impressed.

ccex (1061) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2015
22 oz bottle pours a brown orange with moderate off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is full of caramel and bready malts, dark fruit, brown sugar and some pine resin. Taste is sweet with the hops coming out in the boozy finish. Body is full with a syrupy mouthfeel and slight carbonation. I was not expecting such a good, well-balanced barleywine for the price. I’ll gladly try this one again.

ctipping (125) - Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2015
On tap at Vine & Barley in Port St. Lucie. Served in a snifter. Deep copper with reddish tones. A bit of a head that vanishes quickly with a bit of lace. Coats the glass a bit. I get a lot of malt with the smell of fruitcake. A bit boozy, but that’s to be expected. Tastes similar to the smell. Some hops at the front, but it isn’t as bright as other American barleywines. Very malty with some overripe fruit flavors. Again, a lot like a boozy fruitcake. Thick and syrupy. Medium carbonation that doesn’t really make it feel any lighter. Good consistency that allows the flavors to linger. Good flavor, but mostly just sweet and boozy.

stantheman (769) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2015
On tap at World of Beer in downtown Denver. Served in small goblet, a 10 ounce pour. A very dark cherry colored beer with moderate off white head and tart fruity nose. This is a big full-throated beer with a ton of fruity and bitter notes. Some malt there too. The last impression on the finish is a lingering bitterness. 4.

joejames (348) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2015
On draft at Golden Crust, Red Lion, PA served in an English pint glass. Pours orange-red, nice pillow head, nice lacing, decent retention. Aroma of pine, roasted malts. Taste is sweet, a little bitterness in the back. Full bodied, moderate carbonation, syrupy mouth feel. Finishes sweet. Tasting notes of dates, raisin, black cherry, burnt Belgian sugar and light pine. It’s a good barley wine but needs to be aged I would say.

maley1 (888) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 5, 2015
Clear reddish amber pour with small off white head. Aroma of malts, hops, bread dough, caramel and ripe fruits. Taste of caramel, toffee, bready, ripe fruits, hops and grapefruit. Full bodied, medium carbonation, perfectly balanced, excellent beer!
