Tallahassee, Fl - at drowlandís 7/7/12 going away tasting party - thanks to Blazer06. Dark copper pour, off-white head, nice lace. Sweet, toffee-like aroma. Flavor has some caramel accents, citrusy bittersweet notes. Nice sticky mouthfeel. First from this brewer for me - will seek out.

Murky brown pour with a tan head. Nose is candy sugar, dark fruits, flowers touch of pine. Flavor not as sweet and heavy as expected, follows nose and nice carbonation with great bitterness at the end. Pretty tasty.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours deep copper - like an old penny. Sweet toasted malts on the nose. Bitter, followed by Malta followed again by bitter. The '100 ibus' are very masked by the malt.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[4483-20120608] Bottle. Light fruity grains aroma has a bit of a stuffy note to it. Slightly hazy, brown amber body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Funky bitter peat hops flavour is a bit too much something. Medium body. Meh, OK to sample. (6/3/6/3/13) 3.1

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a deep copper color with a full, dense head. Aroma is heavy in pine.
Crisp for a barleywine, bitter, slight malt taste for a barleywine and low mouthfeel. Not in the barleywine experience as itís mouthfeel has almost no residual sugars, very little intermingling of flavors.....basically itís bitter and relatively thin. Perhaps the FG was too low, but it is easier to quaff than it should be, barleywines should be sipped.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear amber pour, big off white head. Toasted malts, toasted caramel, light pine hops, even an odd vinous aroma. Viscous mouthfeel, low carb. Soapy, resinous pine finish. Medium bitterness, alcohol is well hidden, a nice sipper.
