Think barley wine light, and then you’ve probably got a good idea of what to expect. Clear dk brown red, with minimal tan head. Aroma is strong caramel malty at first, but a noticeable earthy hoppiness shows up as it warms. Perhaps the slightest hint of seasonal spices? Flavor is malty sweet & caramel at the start. Then, toward the back of the mouth, pine hop bitterness takes over and takes you through the swallow. Fairly rich bodied.

Nicely thick. Hoppy and warming. Similar to but not quite as good as Hiburnation ale.

Spicey aroma, mainly nutmeg. Great flavour - piney, spicey, malty, with a good hop backbone. Nice EtOH burn.

Like a Scottish. Sweet, malty, Mild hopping. Pretty basic, and hidden alcohol. One of my Pyramid favorties but still nothing amazing. On tap in Berkeley.

herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - NOV 29, 2002
Big malty character with some spiciness and hops at the end.Needed a little more of both to make it really stand out though. Very good but slightly one dimensional.

ravidesai (947) - Bombay, INDIA - NOV 26, 2002
(2001). not quite a barley wine as it is dominated by a malty toast-like taste,as in a scotch ale some spices here with a understated hoppiness. potent alcohol content is masked well to make this a good winter warmer.
