SamuraiArtist (292) - portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 24, 2007
Bottle: Pours an amber color with a 1 finger off-white dissipating head. Aroma is malty sweet with green and seedy fruit aroma. Flavor is malty and fruity with some alcohol burn and a pretty decent bitter finish but without any hoppy flavors. Far too much of the flavor is alcohol. And the body is a bit light especially for the style. Pretty bad barleywine wise.

monk191 (1092) - California, USA - NOV 12, 2014
A quite nice barleywine. Pours a beautiful red with a thick white head. Smells of malt and raspberry and brown yeast. Taste is nice and malty, with a booziness and fruitiness and slightly hoppy finish. Tasted at the BevMo Holiday Beer Fest.

CampesinoTino (782) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bomber (9.5% ABV). Hazy brownish amber pour with a sudsy layer of off-white head. Mostly herbal hops, pine resin and caramel malt sweetness in the aroma. Taste is resiny hops, orange rind and caramel at the start along with some candied citrus, pine and toasted malt to round things out. Medium-bodied mouthfeel with soft carbonation and more resiny bitterness and dark sugars in the finish. Pretty good balance overall between the bitter hops and sweet malt characteristics.

Iphonephan (3643) - McLean, Virginia, USA - JUN 30, 2014
From a 22 oz bottle purchased at Whole Foods Pasadena. Pours a clear copper with an ecru head. Aroma of malt and grass. Flavors of caramel. Boozy finish.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5095) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a caramel brown color with a large foamy tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sour caramel, wood and had a bitter presence. The flavor was sour caramel, wood, bitterness, tobacco and an off presence. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Very disappointing.

obguthr (4082) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Little aroma. Hazy copper, huge yellow head, decent lacing. Overripe orange, marzipan accents. Some oxidation. Grassy finish. Medium body, warm. Drinks old, but I couldn’t find a bottle date. A good candidate for a re-rate, but this just fell flat. At any rate, it doesn’t seem to age well.

Landmonger (156) - USA - MAY 18, 2014

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