Tap at the brewpub. Purs very dark brown/amber with a beige head. Smells sweet and hoppy. It’s sweet and full bodied. Mildly carbonated. It is hoppy. Starts more sweet than bitter, but it becomes bitter as the sugar washes away. Killer ale!!

On tap at Piece. Pours dark reddish amber with tan head. Aroma is heavy with hops, citrus, caramel, and malts. Flavors of hops, citrus, toffee, caramel, and good amount of malts. Mouthfeel is thick and chewy. Finishes bitter. This is a heavily hopped ale and not really a true "barley wine", but my kind of beer regardless. Pretty damn solid.

daknole (9796) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2009
Tap at Piece. Cloudy brown pour wtih a very small beige head. Aroma is sweet, wtih toffee, fruit, syrup, brown sugar, zesty oranges, lemons and some dark dried fruits. Flavor is sweet and spicy. Hops shine through in this one more than I anticipated in the nose. I really enjoyed this. One of my favorites at piece.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2009
Pours a deep cloudy brown with a light tan creamy head. Aroma is powerfully hoppy with raisin and overripe dark fruit characters. A nice spiciness as well with a well balanced caramel sweetness. Flavor starts with the strong sweet fruits, raisin and plum. Picks up a biting hop bitterness that clenches the back of the tongue and bites through the finish with sharp citric fruits and very sweet malt. Medium to full body and a rich character. Well crafted and warming american barley wine. Very tasty.

17thfloor (2435) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2009
On tap at Piece. Pours a murky dull brown with a lovely fine frothy dense white head. Tons of citrus and resiny piney fresh hops in the aroma, screams American BW. Sweet caramel and bitter salty pine flavor with lots of citrus in the finish. Some cotton candy, herbal, perfumy, slightly reminds me of Alesmith. Sugary med/full body with overloading sharp carbonation.

Cask at Day of the Living Ales. One of the highlights of the event. Chocolatey and rich. Creamy with notes of vanilla and bourbon. This beer took really well to the cask. Hoppy.

tap at piece and also had the cask version at DOLA. this rating is for the non-cask.... dark caramel brown pour with a thin soapy white head..... aroma of dark fruit, caramel, and sweet toffee notes.... flavors of dark dried fruit, caramel with a good malt backbone and a bitterness in the finish. some heat at the tailend as well.

GTMW 2008. The beer was a copper body with a light tan head. The aroma is grapefruit and toffee. The flavor has a floral, toffee, and grapefruit thing going on. A nice creamy palate.

MIBRomeo (2568) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Copper pour ligth tan head with decent lacing. Light cereals and grass in the aroma touch of fruit a piece of raw grains, lots of sweet notes, some hints of grahm cracker. Avg pal. Sweet graham cracker lightly bitter grass flavor fairly acidic, too much alcohol comes through. Not bad but I prefer the camel. GTMW: Served by a very fun & cute brunette should be worth some bonus points.
