Keg @ Pisgah during RBWG, Asheville. Amber pour with a small head. Quite peppery. Singed hops. Strong toffee and caramel accents. Similar flavor. Sort of hot and boozy. More pepper and cinnamon. Moderately bitter to balance the thick, chewy malty sweetness. Full body, oily. Decent.

Bomber, thanks to sevenhokie. Rich caramel malt and dark fruit aroma with brown sugar and some hops. Pours dark ruby red with one finger of white head with good retention and lacing. Nice caramel malt and dark fruit flavors with subtle brown sugar sweetness. Finishes quite smooth with a hint of hop bitterness and just a touch of booze. Nice barleywine.

DrSilverworm (6415) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2014
On tap at Pisgah during RBWG. Very sweet taste up front... Maybe the sweetest beer I’ve had all day. Clear dark red color. Thin khaki head. Some ropes and dots of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, lightly creamy carbonation. Light bite to the taste. Lightly slick. Some tropical, red fruit, spicy malts. Alright scotch / winter / whatever type of ale this is.
