Twist off. Red hue, nice tan head. Smell is caramel, raisins, dark fruits, slight booze. Flavor is thinner, more hops, earthy, brownie, leather, toffee, less fruitiness. Honestly it isnít that bad. Needs a boost in mouthfeel.

Reddish brown with light foam. Not much aroma. Sort of sweet caramel. Roasty malt and caramel flavors. Noticeable alcohol throughout. Slightly medicinal finish. Not recommended.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark amber, cloudy. Almost no head. Aroma is dried fruit (plums?) and molasses. More lively than Iíd expect given the lack of head. Warm finish. Velvety mouthfeel, with a lot of burn in the middle.

Iíll be honest with you gentlemen, Iím watching the last of the mohicans as I write to you now. There is something else too. I didnít know this at the time of purchase, but this is a point brewery ale. Why is that significant? Well, I boycotted Point many years ago. My landlord in MIlwaukee owns the brewery and he is a wicked man who takes advantage of those who cannot defend themselves. Is there anything more cowardice? The taste of style is sweet with carmel notes but I definitely notice the undulating smooth palate of cruelty across my tongue. Can a jerk make anything that doesnít have some semblance of impure? I think not. Nice try James Wiechmann. I take comfort in your lousy website: http://www.wiechmannenterprises.com

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle picked up in Wisconsin. Pours reddish brown in color with a medium sized fluffy white head. The aroma has caramel, dark fruits, alcohol, citrus and bread. The flavor shows a honey laced toasted cereal, caramel, dark fruits and some alcohol. I got some herbal and earthy notes to the finish. This was kind of messy in its presentation.

ASA maybe but not really a barley wine. 1dimensional pretty sweet lacks depth lacks hops a bit astringent. Avoid.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a dark brown with almost no head and weak lacing. Nose is potent and fairly generic maltiness with a good dose of hops and booze. Flavor is a zap to the palate and not in a particularly good way; this is a booze bomb with a bland malt and not so stand out hops. Back is a little sticky. Eh.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Snifter at 41į. Color is a brownish black with light carbonation and a thin tan head. Aroma is rich and sweet with the scent of dried fruits. It has a lighter medium body with a crisp almost clean mouth feel. Flavor is sweet and roasted with dark fruits and toffee. After taste is dry yet sweet like a red wine. Overall its an odd Barley Wine that feels a little light.
