12 oz bottle from OTM. Appearance is a clear amber hue with a small white head. Sweet pineapple with a caramel kiss is the main aroma and flavor. Some apple and oak follow. Nice whiskey flavors that have a pepper note build. Great flavors tasty beer.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate dark fruit, toasted malt, bourbon alcohol and wood aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate dark fruit bourbon sweet flavor with a medium dark sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a complex good beer.

[2/15/15] Draught at Toronado in San Francisco. As Twisted Manzanita Serenity. Dark brown. Sourish aroma with malt, dark fruits, oak and hops. Sweet-sourish flavor, a bit boozy, with malt, dark fruits, wood, tannins and bitter hops. Medium to full-bodied.

Bottle. Aroma is of browned butter, brown sugar, and molasses. Taste is sweet with a lingering bitter chocolate finish. This beer is good but has the taste of a beer aged too long and paste it?s prime. It?s only 6 months old.

a couple years on the bottle. Whiskey presence is very light compared to some of the boozy monsters out there. Strong, but no way did you think this was 12%. Light oak and whiskey aroma, more straight forward malt assault with a good dose of bittering hops for a 2-y-o beer. Classic american barleywine for the most part, with the barreling coming through pretty lightly in the flavor too. Nice."

12 oz. bottle shared by Keir at the hotel after RBSG’s grand tasting. Thanks, Keir. Pours a clear reddish amber with a small off-white head. Notes of brown sugar, toasted malts, and booze-soaked dried berry fruits. Some cardboard hints at oxidation. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, malty, dry mouthfeel. Not bad, but seems like it’s on its way out.

355ml bottle, thanks Kier. YEs I haven’t had this. Very harsh and fruity, lots of barrel booze.
