3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours translucent burnt sienna. Yeah, whipping out my box of crayolla crayons on this one, minimal head. Toffee and nutty nose. Taste is sweet malt, more caramel, toffee. Big full chewy body. Mild booze burn on finish. This is an old school barley wine. Like pre TI-82 calculator old school.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared. Very clear body. Dried apricot, fig, honey, alcohol, dry finish. Hmm not as exciting as expected, almost too smooth and simple, maybe I don’t get the "old style" aspect.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Perfectly clear, caramel-orange honey color. One finger of fizzy, cream-colored head. Unassuming -- you don’t see the alcohol lying in wait. In the nose:light cotton candy, caramel, toffee, soft graininess, subtle floral hops, a touch of earth. Cotton candy leads the flavor, followed by orange, almost floral, alcohol sweet finish. Not much to it, really -- caramel, toffee and cotton candy up front, a floral hop kick at the swallow, waves of alcohol at the finish. Alcohol seems to be the main flavor contributor. Creamy medium body, very high carbonation. Apparent alcohol numbs the tongue and warms the throat. A little light, in flavor anyway. Too easy to drink.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is sweet and grapefruity with some stingy alcohol in the back. The taste isn’t really what I expected, it’s pretty sweet and caramel-ish. There is light alcohol and pine that blends well with the grapefruity touch. For some reason I start to think about a tea flavor I can’t really put my finger on.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an orange gold color with little head. Smell is of piney hops that have faded and some sweet biscuit malt. A little bubbly on the tongue with more bitter hops up front. Very little malt. Have the feeling this was a very hop forward american Barleywine or big IPA that I missed out on.
