Bottle marked 09/08/09 thanks to cavie. Pours with a golden body and a fading white head. Aroma is hoppy with honey and caramel. Taste is hoppy with pine, orange and caramel. Definitely an American style barleywine that reminds me a bit of Old Guardian. Light bubbles and syrupy.

Cavie (4043) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - OCT 5, 2009
Tasting at Hallís. Nice hop scent, which was surprising to me. Has a strong hop presence for a barley wine. Clouded brownish pour. Upfront taste is a malty sweet with a strong hop lingering finish. Very nice and quite flavorful.

(Iím offended that when Redhook releases a barley wine itís in NH before WA). Anyway. Pours a light copper with a thick creamy head. Spruce nose with some black pepper. Spicy caramel, apparent heat. I want to like Redhook, I really do. With their size, why canít they rival Sierra Nevada? I want to buy a few of these and forget about them for a couple years. Thereís some cherry, some oak, but itís all too wrapped in heat. Weíll see.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 11, 2009
BottleÖ Mostly clear, burnt orange ale with thousands of minute yeast particles suspended throughout the body. Small, fizzy, white head. The subtle bouquet offers malty, fruity aromatics of caramel and a mingling of dark fruit, fuzzy fruit and tropical fruit. Full-bodied and chewy with bristly carbonation. Caramely and sweet with understated, earthy, hop bitterness. Finishes mostly sweet with a rumor of acidity.

Pours amber with a thin tan head. Smells of sweet malt, boozy, some raisins. Tastes of caramel and grassy with some fruity hints on the finish.

WeeHeavySD (3361) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 1, 2009
12oz that Iíve had for a bit that I got via trade to try, even though its rated pretty poorly. 2007 Vintage of course. Pours orange with a tan head. Nose is sweet and malty, pretty decent. Taste is sweet also with some caramelly malts, not great, not awful.

1FastSTi (3357) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 26, 2009
2007 vintage. The beer pours to a hazy chestnut colored body with a thin off-white head. The aroma is bitter grassy hops and sweet barley malts. The flavor is sweet toasty malts with bitter grassy hops and rich buttery malts. The palate is nicely balanced, rich, and creamy.

Ughsmash (7424) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 25, 2009
2007 bottle. Poured near-clear, healthy medium orange with a short-ish cap of beige head. The aroma picked up a huge dose of reddish fruits with a sweet overall impression.. some herbal character and touches of earth.. warm, sweet, and inviting. The flavor was also centered around dark fruit, but picked up brown sugar, aged caramel, and a touch of molasses.. finished with more bitterness in the form of pine and earth.. tasty stuff. Medium-plus bodied and well-balanced on the palate.. hoppy and warm at the end. Solid brew all-around.

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 11, 2009
Part of a flight of 3 Barleywines/Strong Ales (along with R.J. Rockers Bell Ringer and Shipyard Pugsley Barley Wine), served a near room temp and in similar shaped snifters: Nice coppery hue with a fading head and not much lace. The aroma is rich caramel and bready malts, ripened fruit, spicy hops, some metallic and minty vapours, and an even stranger note of smoky wood. The butterscotch diacetyl fades quickly once poured. The taste is ripe fruits, rich caramel, bready malts and an acceptable amount of hop bitterness. Slightly astringent dryness and mineral quality about the finish actually helps clear away the sweetness. The mouth feel is smooth and a touch oily, quite drinkable for the ABV. A worth a try brew but you should let it aire out and warm before drinking. However this is NOT a barleywine worth cellaring IMO.
