It has a caramel smell with biscuit and apricots present. It is very cloudy and a darker pale yellow with minimal head. It has a strong floral and alcohol taste with hints of alcohol. It is quite pleasing except for the alcohol aftertaste.

12 oz from Triangle Wine for 5 bucks. Pours a deep, hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is huge caramel, citrus and pine hops. Reminds me a lot of a barleywine, as others have mentioned. Taste is very piney and syrupy, some caramel malts with a strong alcohol burn on the end. Heavy, thick body for the style. Overall this one is more of a barleywine than a double IPA, but is still a fine beer nonetheless. Too bad it’s retired as of this review.

Dark orange colour with a beige head. Rich aromas and a taste which is sweet, but very complex with notes of candied fruit, tangerine, pineapple, resin and leather. The alcoholic strength is surprisingly well hidden but is definitely there! A lovely, well-made beer, close to a barley wine in style. A really great Imperial IPA which can be savoured with great pleasure.

Yop, shared by Brian. This bad boy is a Barleywine, no doubt. Pours very hazy dark hazel, small beige head, some lacing. Aroma is sticky caramel and pine and booze. Flavor is very sweet, lots of sugars and pine, medium bitter with a boozy bite. Medium body, quite hot and alcoholic. Not my favorite.

With Z , July 4th evening, pours a clear light rusty gold color with an ephemeral beige head. Nose has champagne notes with alcohol and hops. Taste is bitter sweet with strong alcohol and hard resin and pine notes, and well balanced... enough to taste some caramel, toffee and malt. Finish is bitter sweet, with the bitterness accentuated along with the alcohol, ending is dry and long. Quaff Score 7 / 10

Bottle. Pours a rusty orange with a beige head and aroma of Citrus, pine, and light spice. Taste is strong, with citrus, pine, caramel, spice notes with hops leading to a bitter, warming, dry finish.

weark (587) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - JUN 27, 2015
Bouteille achetée che Erzbierschof - De couleur orange pâle avec une fine mousse blanche - Au nez une bière très complexe, tout de suite des notes de malt, de biscuit, d’alcool, de caramel, presque un barleywine, mais il y a aussi des notes de houblons bien présente, du fruité, de pêche, de mangue, d’orange, de grapefruit, de résine, une petite présence de vanille et de cassonade, impressionnant - En bouche ça ressemble beaucoup un un barleywine mais en beaucoup plus fruité, les 14% se font bien sentir, beaucoup de malt et beaucoup de houblon, plus d’agrume, très impressionnant et très complexe - Corp puissant, amertume forte, bonne carbonation, douce et amère, une final longue fruitée (orange) maltée et amère - une bière tout en puissance très complexe qui devrait bien se conserver

larsga (7107) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2015
Smallish offwhite head. Clear amber body until I poured the dregs in. Full toffee raisins and nuts aroma with earthy alcoholic notes. Intense sweet toffee and syrup taste with resiny notes. Full-bodied. Sharpish, hot mouthfeel. Bitter resiny fruity aftertaste with syrupy toffee notes. Lingering wooden notes. Age has mellowed this into something that’s not exactly easy drinking, but neither is it offensive. Very full of flavour, and not exactly balanced. (0.33l bottle, I have no idea where from. BBD July 2023.)
