2.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
From a brewery where almost everything is excellent this rendition of an American barley wine is the one weak spot in the lineup. Cloyingly sweet, uncomfortable and unbalanced alcohol heat, hops bitterness that lacks any flavor other than an astringent bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a vigorously poured finger and a half of light beige head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is big caramel with some raisins and a bit of alcohol. Taste is a raisiny and caramel malty sweetness with a herbal bitterness with some alcohol in the finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, quite sweet for the style, but still an enjoyable brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Ei8ht Ball, served in a flight. Pours a cloudy browned amber with a small off-white head that settles into a ring. Notes of toasted, caramel, and chocolate malts, dark fruits, earth, and even a little bit of light funkiness. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty, sweet, earthy, lightly funky mouthfeel. Really nice, left-of-center barley wine. Might be the last Pretty Things beer I have. Itís a good one.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Although the aroma is slightly metallic, there are some herbal hops there, and a lot of raison/bread. The body is full and pleasant, warming beer. Very English.

Quality. Brown draft pour at Firetruck brewery. Thick with off white head. Brown sugar and very sweet. A ton going on in this beer. Complex and I honesty canít think of it as a barleywine. I like it

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from K&L. Bottled Nov. 2011
A: Mahogany color with a firm light creme color and good lacing to round it out.
N: Toffee, cracker, leaves, earth, leather, some caramel, burnt brown sugar, peppercorn, tobacco. The hops have faded out and there is a touch of oxidation after 3 years. Raisin and prune.
T: Big bitterness and sweetness.
M: Medium body, foamy carbonation, alcohol burn.
O: A sweet and burnt barleywine. Itís nice to have one which forges its own path. Reminds me of being back in the Bay Area for business, so it gets some nostalgia points.
