JPDIPSO (5587) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 16, 2016
Dark caramel, copper color with a small, stable head of soft creamy bubbles. Floral hops float across a bed of sweet toasted malt and lightly fermented light fruit. Soft, slightly oily feel. Sweet start, with plenty of alcohol if held in the mouth too long. Over-ripe berries, toasted malt and distinct alcohol bite in the finish and linger. A bit hot. This might mellow over time. 2/14

Aroma is very caramel-based with hints of fruit and bread. The flavor is caramel/mild toffee, malts, mild fruit/dark fruit and a mildly sweet/warming alcohol finish.

Caramel pour with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, a little fruity. Taste is light fruit, a little creamy, smooth, low carbonation. Alc well disguised. Soapy lacing.

Low score due to the fact I don’t particularly care for barleywines. Doesn’t burn and has a caramel taste.

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, slightly hazy dark brownish pour with thin khaki head, aroma brought notes of big brown sugar, cocoa, slight spice into a bit of yeast, slight oak into a bit of spice, grass. Taste was a mix of grass, bread, big toast and brown sugar into some hints of vanilla, some caramel, finishing sweet, slightly boozy.

Look: pours a nice Amber. White head. Very clear. Smell: caramel. Leather. Hot alcohol. Taste: Apple skin. Caramel. Hot alcohol. Feel: slight dryness. Very smooth. Overall: nice beer. Needs some age. Not overly hoppy either. First drank: mom and dads 2/28/15 Vintage: Dec 16, 2014

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - FEB 24, 2015
[Bottle] Clear brown pour with a quickly receding white head. Nose of sticky caramel and toffee along with darker fruit notes. Flavors of fig, fruitcake, candied plums, toffee and mild earthy hops. Sweet finish. The alcohol is very well disguised. I didn’t realize the ABV was so high until after drinking it. Medium carbonation. Smooth and quite drinkable for the style.

nick76 (4372) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 23, 2015
The aroma is very sweet with caramel and somewhat like licorice with hints of butterscotch and earth. The appearance is hazy orange brown with no head. The taste is like the aroma with an astringent finish. The palate is thick. Overall good but flawed.

YigSvartka (276) - Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 29, 2014
Translucent copper brown. No head. Somewhat stunted dried fruit (plums, raisins), cotton candy, and booze aroma. Smooth, creamy, and relatively thin for a barley wine. Initial taste is sweet raisins, plums, licorice, and caramel. Finish consists of the same flavours, but with an added hop and alcohol taste. Malt is present as well. Although not terrible, too sweet for my liking.

kkleu357 (634) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Dark brown body. Sweet brown sugar aroma. Similar taste. Very sweet brown sugar taste. Lots of malty goodness.
