Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 27, 2010
Year-old bottle: Pours a clear orange with a small off-white head, huge aroma with brown sugar and citrus, heavy body, starts lightly sweet and ends bitter. I drank a bottle when it first came out, but it wasn’t anywhere as good as an aged bottle.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - AUG 21, 2010
22 oz bottle from 09/09. Pours clear deep amber with a thick foamy off white head. Aroma of toffee, caramel, pine resin and alcohol. There is a fair amount of caramel malt sweetness but the hop bitterness slightly dominates the flavor, there is also a light oaky alcohol flavor. Medium to full body with a mellow carbonation and a syrupy mouth feel. Pretty good Barley Wine, good to see Redhook trying some new, big beers.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - AUG 20, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear copper beer with no head. The aroma is malt, sweetness and plum. The flavor is malt, sweetness, raisin, plum and a high level of alcohol. The palate is alcoholwarmth. Overall this beer has a lot of alcohol, and needs something to balance it out.

Tmoney99 (12413) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2010
Bottle. Poured clear dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy dark fruit, toasted malt and alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a thick smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate to heavy complex toasted malt and fruit sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet and alcohol burn finish that was moderate to long lasting. This is a solid complex beer.

CanIHave4Beers (3677) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUL 30, 2010
On the bus at RBSG. Pours a deep orange with a small head. The aroma is some caramel and almost some pickle like oddness (aged in a pickle barrel?), there is some chocolate and some mild herbal notes. The flavor has some caramel and nice hoppiness with almost a dank cellar air like character.

KyotoLefty (8138) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 29, 2010
Shared on the bus, RBSG. Orange-brown color with lace. Very carmelly, toffee, buttery aroma. Same in the flavor, but it has a sour edge to it as well, actually. Citrus, strong bitterness at the end. OK.

BuckeyeBoy (4068) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 26, 2010
Bottle Pours out a orange/amber topped with a sand head. Aroma was sweet, plenty of vanilla, caramel, honey, and light hop notes. Taste much as the aroma a nice balance of sweet and rich malts along with a little bitterness.

Thanks to someone on the RBSG bus! Something weird in the aroma, maybe pickle-ish. Victory malt in the mix w/ caramel and perhaps munich. A bit soapy.
