stumpyiliz (216) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Dark amber pour. Nose of alcohol and malt. Taste is very tame. Malty, with light hopping aromas and caramel. Taste is also malty, dry and cloyingly sweet.

solidfunk (5171) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 26, 2015
Lots of caramelized malt and a big citrus infusion. Pours orange amber with ok head and lacing. Sweet finish. Thick and slightly syrupy consistency. Tap at pizzeria paradiso g-town.

Pour on tap, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big sweet orange, sugar, wheat into some caramel, toffee, slight vanilla into a slight hint of spice. Taste was a mix of spice, orange, jam into some vanilla, wheat, honey, touch of caramel, finishing sweet.

wedgie9 (2507) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Tasted in July 2013 from a capped 750mL bottle that Adam and I picked up during a baseball trip in St. Louis. Pours clear bronze with an average tan head that leaves thin, spotty lace. The nose is toffee, caramel, some burnt toast, and a bit of light earthy hops. The flavor is toffee and caramel with the same burnt toast and hops form the nose providing bitterness, and a touch of a creamy vanilla note. The body is full with a creamy texture and carbonation, and a lightly bitter finish.

MartinT (8492) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Deep caramel and strawberry jam accompany honey and candied oranges in this classic rendition of a Barley Wine.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam tops the hazy mahogany.
-Alcohol is well hidden under the sugars.
-Wheat is not showcased at all here, most likely affecting the texture and not much else.
-Maple sugar also morphs within the honey allusions.
-This lacks complexity, but it is able to compensate through comfort creation.

Damico (2867) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Pours deep amber mostly unclear with a light sandy colored head. The aroma brings sweet but not resiny candy like malts, smooth in the nose. Body and flavor are smooth, sweet and lightly bitter malts interact well and there is no overpowering factor like you usually get in this style.

obguthr (4536) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Rich molasses, walnut, and cashew nose, some oak as well. Opaque ochre, thin yellow head. Overripe orange, marzipan, chock full of nuts. Cashew in the end. Full body, moderate carbonation. Yep, this a barleywine, but I never would have guessed it had any significant amount of wheat in it.

gunnfryd (12299) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle. Pale amber with a beige head. Flavour and aroma is alcohol, malt, hop, caramel, apple. Bitter finish. Full body. Nice beer.

hopscotch (10076) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle... Clear amber pour with a fleeting, small, white head. The aroma offers a hearty medley of tropical blossom honeys – avocado, bottlebrush, longan, lychee – accompanied by toffee and a slight brothy note. Full-bodied and creamy with tickling carbonation. The flavor is a fusion of caramel and heavy, metallic bitterness that lingers way too long after an otherwise nice, bittersweet finish. Bottle courtesy of the one and only biggsbowler!

brokensail (12899) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle @ RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting. Nice amber pour with an off-white head. Aromas of brown sugar, some caramel, and toasted malt. Nice fruity hops and citrus peel. Some pine, banana, and dried pear. Good sweetness on the palate. Slight pine bitterness and maybe some booze. Sweet dried pear and apple. Light banana and plenty of caramel and brown sugar. Hints of citrus peel, too.
