[bottle purchased 10/14/07] Sweet malt aroma, plenty of hop character. Somewhat hazy, reddish brown appearance with some decent lacing. Flavors are pretty straight up, tons of caramel malt sweetness, and some really nice English hop character. Alcohol is certainly there, but it doesn’t come off as overly hot. Really nice, overall.

(Draft @ brewpub)...Candy Land...Very dark amber, almost brown. Lightly hazy. One finger of biege head. Nose is fruity hoppiness with caramel and rock candy maltiness. Nice strong lacing. Mouthfeel is full and quite sticky. Taste is sweet and hot. Lots of candyish malt, like candy apple glaze. Not very complex but tasty, and oh did I mention, hot. Barkeep said this was about 3 months old. Probably close to Smuttynose Barleywine (although I ain’t had that one yet). Another sweet, hot, tasty offering from Portsmouth.
