5/11/2011: Marlin Old Dipsea Barleywine Style Ale... Aroma: Milk chocolate and red wine; infected? Appearance: Deep brown color; opaque; beige crown. Flavor: Caramel maltiness that is a bit overshadowed by red wine nuances and some bourbony alcohol; some sort of berry is definitely evident in the middle of this beer; no real bitterness; chocolate undertones and dark fruit throughout; bourbon lingers in the background but becomes more evident as the beer warms. Palate: Medium-full; creamy and smooth with a bit of weight. Overall: Seems a bit off; maybe better described as a [wine] barrel-aged Old Ale or Brown Ale...

Thisis12ptfont (1008) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Aroma of wet hops, herbs and brown sugar. Deep brown color with a magenta tint. Flavors of brown sugar, ground cinnamon and some lightly fruity hops. Overall, this is a fairly basic barley wine with some brown sugar and rich toffee/caramel sweetness. There is a slight alcohol sting on the finish. Not bad. I’d give this a B+ rating.

Shared bottle with friends. Poured a light copper color. Aroma was citrus, with a touch of tart fruity notes. Slight funk perhaps. This one was very smooth, with just a touch of funk notes along with sweet malts. Interesting. Alcohol is pretty well hidden. Nice.
