2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. Murky honey orange with a sparse head. Tastes like a light fruity bitter syrup. Slightly burned maple carmel apple. Some hop bitterness present but was too overpowed by the sweetness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at MacGregor’s in Henrietta. Amber color with a thin white head. Very sweet aroma with spice and earthy notes. The flavor is overly sweet and lots of abrasive spiciness. The malts are heavy and sticky. The finish is a little smokey and earthy. I understand the point, but I just didn’t enjoy it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Pours a amber with not much head. Tastes smells of caramel, bread, floral, light sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, sticky, average carbonation, not really that great kind of a dry hop finish I wouldnt buy it again...bartender gave me wrong beer I wanted the Yeti I guess all those snow men look alike ?

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted in late November 2011 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle at UncleJedi’s birthday tasting, thanks to Josh. Pours cloudy burnt orange with an average beige head that slowly recedes to thin lace. The nose is burnt hair with caramel, toffee, and bread malt, and some hops bitterness. The flavor is lightly sweet burnt bitter caramel, much less offensive, with nice bitterness on the back of the palate. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long burnt bitter finish,

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy, hazy amber color with a creamy tan head...lively...great lacing. aroma is a bit boring but has some caramel, toffee, and a bit of earthy hops. Flavor follows suit with toffee and some bitter, earthy tea-like hop notes. Mouthfeel is medium...slightly watery up front...and the finish is bitter and earthy...dry.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(draft @ Tap and Mallet - Rochester, NY) Copper pour with a very thin off-white head. Sweet and sticky aroma. Not much in the way of hops or anything beyond caramel malts. Flavor is a nondescript mix of sweet malts, alcohol and a very light and dry hop bitterness. Standard barley wine IMO.

bottle... this was drank after some really good barleywines so then having this probably put it at a big disavantage, merely average wasn’t a big fan
