A nice hoppy barleywine a la Old Ruffian. Caramel sweetness and just the right amount of citrus hops. Piece is an awesome brewery. Alcohol was pretty well masked.

This one was a hop monster, very much in line with the Piece house thing. Very creamy mouthfeel, super hopped. Damn tasty. Similar to Bigfoot, but had it’s own nuances. tasty!

Dark tan leather color. Very sweet without the earthiness. Tangy and noticeable alcohol. Some hop bitterness in the end. Long finish. Sugar sweet flavors. Some old banana flavor in there too when it gets really dark skin and mushy.

Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 29, 2008
On tap at brewpub’s release party. Nose is nice balance of malts and citrus hops, some raisin. Flavor is raisiny sweet with some citrus bitterness. Sllight peppery alcohol note is barely perceptable. Slightly vegetal from fresh hops I suspect. Palate is slightly syrupy, though pleasantly so. Finishes with a slight pleasant hop bitterness. nicely done.

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.

msante79 (2211) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2010
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.

NotLA3. real hoppy. more like an IIPA. some caramel and toffee but even the flavor is still mostly hoppy. definitely didn’t notice any alcohol. i could probably go for trying the non-cask version of this.

Ughsmash (7185) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 7, 2007
On tap at Piece. Poured a dark, translucent plum with a light off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma picked up lots of sweet fruits, caramel, and other toasty dark sugars.. very sweet and very seductive. Flavor was of very heavy caramel and dark fruit at the base.. other sticky, toasty sugars, floral bitterness, and a bit of alcohol bite toward the back.. quite tasty! Creamy with well-placed floral and fruity bitterness. Great stuff!

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.
