Poured deep amber/copper/brown in color with a small, tan/light brown head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Cloudy. Lightly sparkling. Full of tiny and small particles throughout. Very good lacing. Flavor is medium sweet and medium to heavily bitter. Tastes of malt, hops, light pine, light fruit, light berry, light resin, light wood, and slight burnt caramel. Medium body. Slightly tingly, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, hop, pine, resin, light fruit, light wood, and slight burnt caramel finish is dry. 12%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

22 ounce bottle purchased at Barkís Beer Cave in Plattsburgh, NY. Aroma has floral hop notes along with some caramel maltiness, metallic hints, and scant booziness. Aroma is so-so. Mildly hazy light-ish mahogany body with a decent off-white head present. Starts a bit astringent, before this becomes metallic...very metallic. Finishes with some herbal, hops...chinook? Light-bodied and pretty boozy.

The aroma is sharp pine and spruce hop. Sharp rye malts, dark and roasted. Touch of cherry and sugary raisin. Complex scent. The appearance is dark, hazy brick red. Decent slushy head. Thick sheet of lace. Murky and inviting. The flavor is gritty, burnt rye and barley. Touch of chocolate and burnt coffee. Grape, raisin, cherry. Very bitter spruce and pine oil hop. The palate is chewy and very thick. Alcohol burn on the swallow. Itís equal to (if not better than) the original. Double bitters of woody hops and burnt malts. Very good.

TheJester (2163) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2010
650 mL bottle. Dark, hazy orange-brown. The beige head fades quickly, but laces nicely. Smells the part, with strong brown sugar, alcohol, and hops. The flavour begins nicely, with hops, caramel, and something that is almost anise, before exploding into a boozy finish. This one needs to stay on the bench for a while.

Bottle, pours a deep ruby red and an offwhite head. Smell is sharp....strong citrus with a little vanilla, maybe some oak notes. Taste is very deep....some cherry highlighted with a very nice, strong hop backbone. A little too barleywine-ish....but still good.

Sammy (9524) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2010 It was quite hoppy, very enjoyable and dangerously drinkable. Copper body, a little hoppy aroma. A tad above average mouthfeel. Not very complex, but tasty stuff.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2010
Bomber. Pours brilliant garnet red with a medium creamy orangey/tan head. Aromas of caramel, sour cherry, sweet sugary pine, cocoa, raspberry, and alcohol. Flavor is a hint of sugar and very bitter pine, caramel, and a piney/black peppery/boozy alcohol finish. Finishes with some earthy cocoa notes. Bitter, full-bodied, creamy, and very warming. The 12% isnít hidden at all here, but it works; this is a big beer. A nice balance between bitter pine and sugar, with tons of warming alcohol. Very good.

Bought a bottle as I couldnít go to the Beerfest and wanted something different to appease my beer appitite.... and this fit the bill. Copper color, head not too thick even though not completely chilled... hoppy but not too much so, and nice and kick-a** with the ABV.... I like it, and will have this one again.

Middle Ages Double Wench is a crystal clear, dense copper-brown ale with a thick, dense, beige head that has outstanding retention and lacing. It has a hoppy aroma, with notes of flowers, grass, citrus and pine. Thereís some caramel and a light sweetness from the malt. The malt and hops work together perfectly in the nose. Itís full bodied and very smooth. The finish is dry and leaves the mouth a little chalky. It has a bold, resiny flavor thatís very well balanced. Thereís the slightest bit of sweetness. There is a long, resiny bitterness that lingers. Itís not super unique, but itís a big, bold beer that demands you take notice.
