Dogbrick (11635) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2004
Sampled at From The Vine beer tasting Jan 9th, 2004: This beer is a deep ruddy amber color with a medium thick light tan head. Sticky thin lacing. Aroma of sweet malt and caramel, along with a bit of hops. Rich and smooth with a lot of malt up front, as well as some citrus and hops for good balance. The finish is lightly bitter and a little earthy. Overall another solid offering from Moylan's.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - JAN 12, 2004
Pours a very thick redish mahogany with a thick head that leaves a nice lace. Scent is sweet with a touch of hops. Toffee is strong as are some fruits. The flavors really come alive as this warms. This is complex. Definate fruits; cherry and citrus. Caramel and toffee. When it was cold it almost had cocoa taste to it without any alcohol, but now that's gone and the alcohol is definately strong. Mouthfeel is nice and thick, very good for the style. Overall this is quite nice. This brewery puts out some stellar beers.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2003
Nice dark amber color,small tan head that faded quickly leaving a nice lace behind.The aroma was malty and hoppy with maybe a hint of alcohol.The taste was much better,malty sweet,kind of heavy feeling with a decent hop presence and fruit as well.Mild caramel and maybe toffee with a good finish was malty and some what bitter.Very nice brew with alot of malt flavor and the hops are decently done,in a way to give flavor and not be over powering.The alcohol manages to stay some what hidden with only mild hints as you drink it.Very nice and well worth trying again.

ZepolK (102) - South Side Montebello, California, USA - DEC 23, 2003
Very fruity, malty, floral and candy aroma. Small tan head with lacing that could last for days. Flavor is complex, rich and very satisfying. Citrus, nuts, dates, malt and hints of glorious hops. I am actually surprised with the ratings on this barley wine, as I found it to be rather exceptional for its class. Alcohol is very well hidden and the flavors blend well in balance with good harmony. If you enjoy barley wine you shouldn't pass this one up, top shelf!

Orange-reddish color with a tan head, lacing. On the sweet side with pineapple, tangy citrus, hoppy. Finishes with a sharp bitter taste. Has an alcohol presence.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2003
Melted caramel wiht a thick, tan head. Sweet, sticky malt aroma topped off by fruity hops. Toffee, caramel, bread pudding, a touch of pine, citrus fruit and a bit of alcohol. Full bodied and flavorful. Good caramel and lightly toasted bread flavors. Definite hop presense, but not over the top or too intense. Not the biggest example of the style, but certainly a tasty one.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2006 Conventional citrus hops amidst creamy berries...The amiability of a flower meeting the stiff handshake of alcoholic bitterness...Bread crumbs and lint cannot deter from the ambrosial feel this type of barley wine can give me...Roastiness and chocolate deepen the malty experience, but that alcohol mars it somewhat...Its youthful exuberance though overexposes its hop agressiveness, but this one has enough of a well-fed malt backbone to develop into a real pleasure-bearer in a year or so...
