Rustyham (1717) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Aroma of maple, pine trees, and sap. flavor sticky treacle, maple, and thick caramel malt. Appearance is brown sap color with white lacing left like wood grain on the surface. Palate is sticky with a strong hop body. I really liked this. Bottle from a tasting at Barrios’s house.

ScottyP (425) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Pours a clear amber with thin off white head. Aroma of funky hops, syrupy malts, honey, caramel. Very fruity. Similar taste, medium bodied, night bite hop at the end, really clings to the roof of my mouth.

MmmcKay (1051) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Pours a orange red brown, kind of like the color of the top of a creme brulee. Tastes like the top of a creme brulee. Hard candy. Dark sugar flavors but not too sweet. Very malty. Not much hops.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Pours a lacing beige head with a copper body. Aromas of caramel, pine, malt, vanilla. Flavor is much the same with a cocoa note. Finish is slightly dry, nice sweetness, malty and lasting.

kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - MAY 28, 2010
22oz bottle, remnants of Boonville. Pours a deep, clear copper color; thin, light-tan head with small bubbles, light retention, and decent lacing; not bad looking. Sticky-sweet caramel, tea-like malts, and (seemingly) a hefty amount of darker crystal malts showing in the aroma; cloying, syrupy, with a too-moderate earthy bitterness lingering in the background; not offensive or even off-putting, but bad signs for what’s ahead... Full mouthfeel; very light carbonation; light creaminess and minimal astringency, with some warming alcohol making itself known; for how big this is, the maltiness is heavily sugary, tea-like, and stale; lots of cloying sweetness, a modest display of earthy and fruity bitterness (barely present behind the sweet malt character), and a potent and abrasive alcohol note that just builds and builds as this warms; very unimpressive barleywine; "barelywine"? I just made that up. The finish is terrible; stale, tea-like, cardboard-y malts that just last and last and last.

topherh (1911) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - MAY 18, 2010
Pours coppery with an off white head. Aroma is sweet, earthy malt. Flavor is sweet malt, fruity, with a bit of grassy hops.

pepsican (1438) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - MAY 18, 2010
Amber pour with a small off white head. Heavy raisin and plum aroma. Similar flavor, not much hops and pretty mellow overall decent.

Rockcrawler (197) - Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA - MAY 11, 2010
22 Oz. The beer wasn’t in a cellar of any sort so the bottle might be a little funky. Pours a clear dark honey color with light head that subsides quickly. Aroma is interesting sweet caramel and resinous hops. Taste is a complete attack on the palate from the sticky hops and sweet malts. Heavy bodied beer that and finishes with an intense sticky resinous hop bite.

doomfistinc (82) - New Mexico, USA - MAY 11, 2010
Sampling thanks to RockCrawler. Pours a clear dark honey color with light head. Aroma of sweet caramel and resinous hops. Taste is intense on both fronts. FULL bodied and finishes with an intense sticky resinous hop bite.

beerguy101 (5277) - Newark, California, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Sampled on 4/2/2010. This barleywine pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel, orange, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied Barleywine. The malts are fruity, sweet, with a touch of orange and orange peel. The hops are earthy and floral. Nice carbonation. Decent balance. Some additional bottle aging will improve this beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
