On tap at the source the day after Christmas. Served in a snifter. Pours a lighter orange amber with a thin off white cap. Typical barley wine aromas. Dark fruit, brown sugar, vanilla and hops. Sweet in the mouth. Warming. Palate was a little thinner than expected. Overall, very nice.

On tap at the source. Pours a deep golden chestnut color with a thinnish off white head that shows minimal retention. Smells of dark dried fruits, raisins come to mind. Cherry, brown sugar, ethanol, herbal hops round out the nose. Taste is sweet and strong. Lots of caramel and brown sugar offset slightly with dark fruits and a smattering of earthy hops and alcohol. Medium to thick body, light level of carbonation, sweet sticky almost syrupy mouthfeel. This one is a little rough. The menu said this has been aging since February, and I would say age it a bit more to mellow it out. The alcohol is still a touch harsh and there’s a bit too much sticky sweetness going on.

Big thanks to jcwattsrugger for bringing this to the tasting so I could give it a try. I’m honored. It pours clear copper with ruby hues and tan head. The aroma offers up rich levels of citrus hops, lime, malts and bitter smelling pine hops. The taste is smooth sweet malts mixing with rich citrus hops like orange peel and malt sweetened lime juice. It then flows into some tasty pine hop goodness as the taste heads toward midway. This is good stuff for sure as the flavors carries smoothly and cautiously into the finish.

Thanks to jcwattsrugger for the share on this one. Pours orange-amber with a slight white head. Nose is booze, toffee, caramel, sugar cubes, and some tartness and tart fruit. Flavor is similar with some malt and a presence of tart fruit. Medium in body and interesting.
