Bottle from Brew Keeper. Poured clear reddish copper color with a moderate frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate fruity and small malty aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture. Moderate to heavy fruity bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.

Drake (11961) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 31, 2010
22 ounce bottle courtesy of dankman. Thanks! 2008 Vintage. Pours a clear red-orange color with a moderate sized tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of toffee, nougat, chocolate, cocoa, faint cherries and leafy hops. Taste is caramel, toffee, cherries, bitter hops, cocoa powder and faint booze. Medium bodied. Just a bit underwhelming.

Sample at the Hopsnobbery Collective Barley Wine tasting on 03/14/2009: Thanks to JaBier for sharing a hand foil-wrapped bottle. The beer is slightly hazed reddish amber in color with a thin off-white head that dissipates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass, Aroma of burnt malt, caramel and hops. Medium body with a strong malt character with notes of sweet caramel and hops. The finish is toasty with a caramel malt aftertaste and a slight alcohol presence. Pretty good overall.

Sammy (11251) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2008
Bottle obtained from the brewpub. The best is the look: A big white bubbly head on a brown body. A lot of lace. Mouthfeel is a little light. Not significantly complex. Basically malty and drinkable. Some sugar.But not too sweet overall. Fairly boozy. Not much in aroma.
