jazz88 (2527) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 13, 2002
Tap of the 2001 vintage, sampled at the Tornodo in December 2002. Ruby color with a tan head that quickly laced. Deep fruit (cherries and plums) and caramel aroma and flavors. A fine barley wine.

Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 8, 2002
An amazingly drinkable barleywine. Deliciously malty with a pop of hoppy goodness at the end. Speakeasy is the best California micro, bar none.

40oz (181) - Newport Beach, California, USA - JAN 7, 2002
Dark colored. Thick and sweet like a young barleywine but very hoppy like a strong ale. Much hoppier than the typical barelywine. Finishes dry and not cloying. Unusual but not unplesant beer.

joet (2055) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JAN 5, 2002
Tastes like a thick gruel of hop juice and cane sugar. It seems West Coast brewers will either find one of these mega-hops/mega malt brews that actually work -- and it would be a great discovery -- or they’ll back down to just plain ol’ big beers of Bastard proportions.
