Sampled from the bottle at the 2010 Indiana Winterfest. Poured murky yellow brown with a tan head. Aroma had a nice combination of malts and hops. Flavor was much more one note with sweet malts throughout giving a bit of a caramel flavor.

Not sure why I had some high hopes with this one. Maybe it was the first different barleywine of the cold season and this is a "limited release". But in the end, like most Redhook beers...it’s pretty tame.

The barleywine pours out a solid amber color, crystal clear with a 1/4" off-white creamy head. There was some clinging foam stuck to the sides of the glass, but nothing I would call lacing. More like...clumping. Aroma was mostly cardboard, toasted/bready malts, and old orange juice. Flavor had some suprising high levels of residual sweetness left for a barleywine without much hop character to keep it even. I mean, I love sweet barleywines, but this just was kind of a blah sweetness. Piney hops seemed buried under the malts, and the onslaught of over-oxidized fruits just made this too hard to enjoy.

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.

DocLock (8001) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours copper with ruby edges and 2f ow head and good lacing. Nose is resiny hops, earthy, floral, fruity, with c malt. Tastes very c malty, somewhat cloying, with notes of fruit, bs, hops, berry, and slight funk. Finishes mediocre. Starts OK though.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2008
Malty, caramel and brown sugar, with a huge hop nose, of citrus and pine. Pours dark amber with little to no head. Very malty, caramel, with a strong catty hop flavor, and a little piney. The catty flavor is overwhelming and ruins the beer for me.

after4ever (6231) - Brier, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2009
Crystal clear bright caramel medium amber. Loose, creamy tan ring of foam. Big sweaty nose. Creamy medium body. Bitter, resiny wood shows up right off the bat. Tons of gym socks. Not much character other than the diacetyl and whatnot here.

halfonit (1176) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Poured a clear, red amber color with a small, off white head that left no lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine, and caramel malts. Taste of citrus fruits, cherry candy, caramel, with a bit of a tinny, alcoholic finish.
