MaBeer1972 (1439) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle from Manchester W&L. Poured into a tulip glass. A deep ruby black color with frothy medium tan head. Aroma of alcohol and roasty malts. I let this one warm a long time. Flavor is smooth and silky. Lots of roasty chocolate and coffee notes. Medium bitterness. Some alcohol burn on the backside. Not bad at all.

ICEatALAMO (1132) - Troy, Michigan, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle. The pour is a ruby red/copper color. The aroma is typical barleywine. The taste is just an average barleywine. Not impressed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cpetrone84 (1705) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Pour is murky brown with red hues and tan head with large bubbles. Nose has rich dark malt up front with a light grain immediately behind. A bit of root beer and a touch seltzery in back. Taste has a lot of the rich malt up front, caramel and chocolate, a bit sugary and burnt sugar, a note of root beer behind, not as thin as I thought through the finish. Well carbonated and full body, a bit grainy on the palate.

Reynolds314 (2833) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Boozy thin malt bomb. Toffee, dark fruits and caramel sweetness. Taste is moderately sweet with some bitterness and a thin seltzery palate.

hopscotch (10082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle… Clear golden pour with dirty orange highlights and a small, fat-bubbled, white head. Decent retention. The aroma is a marriage of caramel and earthy hops. Full-bodied and fatty with mild carbonation. The flavor emulates the nose while presenting a nice balance between bitter and sweet. Lengthy, moderately sweet finish. Bottle courtesy of ctipping!
