Sigmund (4939) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2012
On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Amber colour, moderate head, slightly off-white. Lovely aroma of fruity and resinous American hops, malts in the background. Excellent and well balanced flavour, distinct American hops throughout, but not too extreme. There is a sufficient malty backbone to support the hops. Not too sweet. Jolly good!

Tmoney99 (10413) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Bottle shared by Jay. Poured clear ruby color with a large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex spruce hop and alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a complex standout beer.

On tap on at Firkin. Slightly hazy ice-tea colored served with asmall but very creamy whitish colored head. Aroma is nearly nonexistent, just a little orangey citrus and a little alcohol. Taste though is slightly sweet, very smooth, with notes of citrus, orange, and mildly stewed tea. Very smooth. Alcohol is well hidden. A very nice, very smooth barley wine.

jeremytoni (2948) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - FEB 18, 2012
From the tap poured a brown color with almost no head. Strong malty sweet flavor with a quick finish. Very drinkable for the amount of alcohol.

TheBeerGod (5168) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Bottle - 750mL crowned. Rusty amber pour with a tall, dense, frothy tan head. Aroma is big citrus oils, grapefruit, spicy hops and caramel. Taste is mainly spicy hops up front with citrus oils, pine and grapefruit pulp following it up. Nice malty backbone with chewy caramel notes make up the body of this beer. Palate is medium-full with a strong, dense carbonation and mild warmth. Pleasant lingering bitterness to this as well. Ends with more spicy hops, caramel, grapefruit, pine resins, sweet malt notes, light pineapple and hints of peach.

Draft. Pours red amber. Tastes like rye IPA...unexpectedly so. I love rye IPAs...so this was a pleasant surprise...but the most bitter portions of the brew seemed to collect on the back of my palate. The brew tasted good at the start...but down hill from there.
