Growler. Dark cloudy ruby with no head. Looks vaguely like apple cider. Aroma is melted Jolly Ranchers and Worthers Originals. Taste follows suit for the most part. Rich, chewy sticky palate. Awesome English style Barleywine if not a touch one dimensional.

John25 (1291) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Growler from the brewery. Pours a murky cherry brown sunburst color. The aroma is roasty, toffee, burnt sugar, caramel. Taste follows with a little bitter touch and a lot of sweet sugar. The mouthfeel is rich and sweet. The alcohol is hidden very well. Awesome barley wine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheAlum (6944) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Bottle at Tony/Jim BA Birthday Extravaganza 2013 (Western Springs, IL). Pours a rich ruby brownish hue, darker hazy body with some ruby copper glow. Some frothy tannish head atop laces as a decent film, good stick around. Aromas are a touch sticky, caramel and toast, gentle earthy hops. Touches of yeast, gentle spice, toast. Some gentle toaast, earthy hops. Initial is a bit toasty, firm body, a bit carmelized, toasty, some vanilla and gentle biscuit. Some caramel, gentle sweetness shows a touch of girth. Mellow earth, warmth, red fruit. Middle is a bit sweet, toasty and carmelized, mellow dry hop tapers out. Some soap, earth, and florals. Gentle toasty malts, vanilla and biscuits. Backend is dry, a bit toasty and mellow biscuit. Tapers out, a bit forgetable. Ok. Pretty pour, solid nose.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2013 Served on-tap at Als of Hampden.

A - Pours murky brown with a small half finger tall khaki colored head, dissipating down to a light film, spotty webs of lace down the glass.

S - Smells of intense sweetness, mostly caramel, toffee and brown sugar. Some nice mild piney hop bitterness and some light booze. Straddles the line between American and English BW quite well.

T - Starts off with the strong caramel and toffee sweetness that never really fades away. The mildly toasted brown sugar and the piney hop bite rounds our the flavor profile. While there is some booze present, for being 11.2% this one hides is quite well. Finish is sweet with a bit of heat, not lingering on the palate for all that long.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, rich feel throughout with a nice warming booze burn at the end of each sip.

O - An excellent example of an Barleywine, wether English or American. It has everything you would expect and it is easy to consume, even at 11.2%. I am glad to see this beer as Old Toad was one of my favorite beers at Bullfrog, I greatly welcome its return even if it is just for a short time.
