JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 15, 2009
Deep amber brown beer with a thick sticky white head. There is a lot of sticky foam and lingering lace. Aroma is quite sweet and sticky initially. Nice fresh pine resin over some other herbal hop aromatics. Flavour has a nice soft biscuity maltiness and a lingering hoppy finish. Quite bitter with a lot of sticky pine and some earthy resinousness. It’s kind of simple but quite appealing nonetheless.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 12, 2009
Bottle at the “Drink for Charity” event at Rattle & Hum. Brought I think by Max. Pours a clear light brown. Dead still, no head. Smells like rubbing alcohol and plums. Flavor is all burnt malt and isopropyl. Terrible.

larryLSB (418) - La Selva Beach, California, USA - APR 19, 2009
Poured from 22 oz, golden amber with huge off white head that stuck around for a while. Subtle nose of sweet caramel, smooth taste with nice balance of hops and fruit. Very good finish that left a warmth in the mouth.

Not terribly interesting. Caramel aroma and flavor. Some citrus in the flavor.

after4ever (6108) - Brier, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2009
On tap at Hard Liver Barleywine Festival 09, Brouwer’s Cafe. Crystal clear, somewhat rubied medium amber. Dense creamy tan head. Caramelly nose, a little boozy. Creamy medium body. Caramel, doughy malts, tangy oranges on the mid-palate.

mcox90 (1535) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 31, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a receding off white head. Aroma is sweet candy, dark fruits and alcohol. Flavor is caramel, dark fruits ( dates and figs), with powerful hop background. Smooth, warm palate with a lingering burning finish. A sipper for sure. Very good.

trevor211 (1298) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 22, 2009
On tap at Brouwer’s Hard Liver 09. Pours a crystal clear copper color, with a mostly malty nose, and a thick, dense, retentive head. Artificial fruits on the nose - seriously like a watermelon Jolly Rancher. Nice and hoppy, especially in the flavor, countered more with fruit than with malts or alcohol. Effervescent - really good stuff. I could certainly have a bigger glass of this.

rmussman (1702) - California, USA - MAR 15, 2009
A good brew. Very little head on it, but dark brown. A good barley wine, strong alcohol percentage. Taste of caramel and hops is strong and sweet. A good brew.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - MAR 6, 2009
Bottle. Hazy amber color with a thin broken light tan head. Heavy malts, some alcohol, mild earthy hops, not a notable aroma. Taste is pretty hot up front, hoppier tasting than it smells, bitter finish. Decent taste, aroma is underwhelming. Rough around the edges.
