Braudog (6379) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2014 Bottle. Attractive pour of dark bronze with a firm top. The aroma is sweet and outdoorsy, but what follows is a thick syrupy drink. Rich with maple, caramel, and butterscotch notes, this is a thick drinker. (#3599, 11 July 2009)

Bottle at a friends house. From notes. Loads of dark fermented fruits and a decent toffee backbone. Awesome beer.

Ibrew2or3 (8207) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 2, 2006
12oz bottle. Clear copper color with fluffy tan head. Early the aroma is light with sweet sugary malts and pine hops. Really nice west coast style Barleywine flavor. Caramel malts are big and then pine hops hit. Just beyond midway a faint dark fruitiness emerges to add interest. Really nice drinkable flavor in this 10.2% ABV brew.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of fiulijn. Clear, amber golden with a rough, off-white head. Fat nose of aroma hops and caramel. Very full-bodied with plenty of caramel malt. Some almost medicinal notes. Extremely intense with a very solid hop bite in the finish and also some very warming alcohol. Yummy. 171107

2006 vintage. Pours a clear coppery amber with a red tint and a creamy medium sized beige head. Aroma of caramel malts and slight pine. Taste of caramel malts, faint pine and candied sugar. A tasty barleywine.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 19, 2008
Pours a beautiful clear ruby-red with a short-lived head and some lacing. Fantastic aroma - sweet caramel and nice, crisp, fresh hops. Wonderfully malty, fruity taste - very fresh hops, very present alcohol. Light diacetyl. Resinous, astringent hop character in the finish. Body can be creamy and pleasant when a head is worked up, decent carbonation. What a real treat - I look forward to ageing this and tasting again in a year!

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 27, 2008
Fresh citrusy hops over a round malt sweetness with a touch of alcohol in the nose. Brilliantly clear amber brown body is topped by a decent tan head that recedes to a partial cover with slight lace. Plenty of fruity esters over sweet malts and citrusy hop flavour. Bitterness creeps in and is quite pronounced and lingering. Alcohol is very present in the flavour and is quite warming as well. Medium body with very creamy texture and pleasant, lightly pointy carbonation. Snifter. Cellar temperature. Bottle (Brewery Creek, Mar-08).

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2010 very bold but easy drinking beer. Gotta be careful been caught a couple of times with this one. Very hoppy and a bit syrupy. Seems a little unrefined but a tasty drop none the less.

riversideAK (6160) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 22, 2010
Sweet sugary/hoppy nose. Some citrus/pine/floral notes + caramel toasty and some fruity malt notes. Well rounded aroma, very enjoyable. Another beautiful beer - copper, bright filtered, awesome head retention and awesome lace. Fuck yeah hoes. Full of fruity hops - grapefruit and citrus, floral notes - toasted malts, caramel, light iced tea, lots of lingering bitter hops. Smooth and well bodied with solid drinkability all things considered. Yes.
