Tap at Barcade, New York. Colour is cloudy reddish brown with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, apples, caramel, some alcohol, sweetness and malts. You can actually taste apples in this which is strange. One of the strangest beers for a while.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at 3rd year anniversary of the brewery. Appearance is copper red. Sweet aroma with a hop character to it. Citrus, orange. Flavor is not the caramel i expect at the forefront of a barleywine. Slight sweetness. But distinct hop finish. Not bad but a non-traditional barleywine imo.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft - blonde colored barley wine, with a light haze - odd flavor - kind of dough, floral, bitter and kind of soapy - some fruity white grape character - moderately bitter and acidic - finishing with strong sugary/frosting sweetness - weak, especially for this brewery.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler courtesy of blipp at James’ place for a tasting. Pours a clear orange with a thin white head. Big sticky malt, toast and a bit of caramel. Sweet and malty, not so much malt as caramel sweetness. Lingering sweet caramel with a touch of bitterness. Decent enough.

Growler. Pours orange with an off white head. Light citric hops, some grainy malts and medium sweetness, bread, and a hint of booze. Solid enough.

This was my favorite of a flight of beers I had, mostly because of the sweet malty flavor, with notes of caramel and fruit. Very tasty.
