Rune (8827) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2012
200ml, draught at Schouskjelleren Mikrobryggeri. Near-white, stable head leaving nice rings of lace to the glassware. Orange-amber coloured body with a slight haze. Malt-fruity-herbal nose. Blended flavour profile of dark malts, dried fruits and mild dark spices. Solid lingering, bitter finish. Foamy in the mouth. Full bodied with integrated alcohol. A treat to drink this one (Oslo, 28.02.2012).

BMan1113VR (7890) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Bottle thanks to billshmeinke. Pours with a deep coppery-orange hued body with a massive off-white head that leaves great lace. Aromas are hoppy with notes of floral, citrus and grassy. Some spicy notes possibly from the malt, estery, jammy, chestnuts, nutty, marzipan and molasses. Flavors are tea like, citrus, herbal, bready. Alcohol presence is noted. Overall a pleasant marmalade character. Alcohol is there but not too warming or harsh. Thick bodied, fuller carbonation, lasting bitterness with some resin. A bit sticky. That said, this is not the most drinkable beer ever with its stickiness and bitterness. Hard to split a 750 to ways.

MrBunn (2523) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours blood orange with faint aromas of soap with a little citrus and sugar. Flavor is pretty sugary with a bit of orange and pine. It’s alright, but I thought it would be a bit more interesting...

beernbourbon (1357) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Bottle. Pour is deep hazy ruby red/ copper with a large off-white head. Aroma is sweet toffee malt, notable resinous hop note, faint spice, and a touch of fruit/ orange in the back ground. Flavor is also sweet toffee malt balanced by a resinous hop note with a touch of spice and a faint orange finish. Really a very good, very straight forward barley wine. No frills, just solid.

48FanInCali (782) - California, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Tap. Light maple pour with thin head. Nose mostly if hops and light fruit. Taste is very hop forward and not much else. The wheat doesn’t provide much of a backbone or presence. Ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
