Maybe itís unfair to rate this but I had a pull from a bottle recently and itís a watery cardboard mess. The flip tops donít hold up so well over time.

skoisirius (1908) - Earth, Washington, USA - JUN 23, 2010
Sampled at a tasting a few years back. Very similar to the 2004+ version, just a tad bit weaker, though that could have been due to age as well.

AmEricanbrew (6737) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - NOV 7, 2007
.5 liter bottle bottled on Jan. 4- 2001. The pop top bottle pours a beautiful clear garnet color. Thin head and very little carbonation. . Smells of candy sugars, sweet brown raisons, with bread and yeast, like a fresh baked cinnimon roll. Has a sweet raison taste surrounded by a dry, almost sour port wine flavor.Medium bodied with a flat mouth feel. Finishes with an appropriate alcohol taste on the breath. oh, the joy of aged beers.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 13, 2005
bottle - tasting in the vaults of hi international seattle. not particularly distinctive - brownish amber, toffee aroma, some vanilla and sultanas, quite sweet, soft, not bad

Sickboy282 (1114) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 8, 2004
Pours a deep coludy auburn/brown with no head. Aromas of a semidry chardonnay and a muskiness. Flavor is slightly nbitter with flavors of nuts, honey, apple/pear juice and a light smokiness. A decent barleywine.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 6, 2004
reddish muddy brown..smells very vinious, hinting at a semi-dry chardonney with some oak cask and sour grape touches...very vinious, white wine and cork-like flavors with a little maltiness behind it. No hoppiness really save a faint whisper of bitterness in the finish...

Aurelius (5094) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 12, 2004
2000 vintage, found in the deep recesses of a friendís fridge. Deep brown, murky coloring, not much head, good latchkey bottle, lots of sludge in the bottom after 5 years or so. Complex flavor and aroma -- tannic, bocky malt, fruit, bitter wood, raisins, plums, nuts. Warming without an ABV assault. Long, tangy bitter finish with the west coast hops. Mouth was a bit light. A conversation piece, but not terribly enjoyable.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2004
Bottle-In the vaults of HI International. Milk chocolate, sweet malty and smooth, not particularly robust. Some sherbert and vanilla, sugary aswell. Smooth, perhaps a little too smooth.

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 1, 2004
Burnt raisan and plum aroma. Reddish brown. The worst barley wine I have tasted. Perhaps a barley wine lambic. Tastes like lemon juice and vinegar. I think that this is what Christ drank on the cross.
