A great base barleywine, very average, not too sweet or not malty, pretty cool.

Sample pour. Deep hazed red/golden amber. Little to no head. Aroma is malt and mild fruit, pears, light hop, caramel. Flavor is lighter and not overpowering. Caramel and toffee up front with light lingering fruit notes. Lighter body.

Bomber bottle: Pours a cloudy burnt orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet & roasty with hints of pecans, hops, brown sugar, & a mild alcohol presence. Sweet flavor has a creamy texture with hints of toffee, hops, & a mild alcohol presence in the mild bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 ml bottle shared by Chris- thanks again, Chris! Pours a hazy amber color with a tiny off-white ring for a head. Aroma of toffee, pecans, brown sugar, dates, and toast. Flavor of toffee, pine resin, pecans, brown sugar, dates, figs, plums, and some sneaky booze. Medium-bodied, with a smooth mouthfeel and low carbonation. Surprised to see this rated so low. I bet if it had been brewed at Cigar City its average rating would be about 0.5 higher.

Smell resembles cat food, kind of fishy/grainy. Slightly sweet but really strong hop presence that clashes unfavorably with the cat food taste. Just not good at all, on tap at the brewery.

Draft at Cigar City during release party for Roosevelt/Church(on a)hill collaborations. Poured into a snifter glass with minimal head it had a murky, brownish amber color. Lots of toffee, dark pitted fruits and booze in the aroma. Flavor was similar to the aroma. Noticeable alcohol, but a nice drinking barleywine.

The beer is a murky amber color with a small khaki head. Sweet caramel and toffee, a nice nutty note, and some pine hops. Maybe just a little bitter on the palate. Fairly nutty, sweet toffee, bread, and caramel. A light creaminess, toasted malt, and citric hops an pine. Hint of booze on the palate.

Dated Nov2011 I smuggled this back from Florida in April and I’ve had it sitting on a shelf in the fridge screaming at me since then. Pours a curiously murky light brown or dark orange color with a decent tan head that slowly dissipates to a cap on top. Well it smells like a barleywine. Lots of dark sugars and dark fruits, some floral and earthy hops, a bit of sweet overripe melon, and a touch of alcohol. I can’t smell any pecans, but I can taste em. The flavor is dark sugars up front with lots of fruits, cherries, raisins, and melons. There’s a solid punch of ethanol and higher alcohols as well as an earthy and resinous hop flavor that lingers long after each sip. Medium to thick body with a moderate level of carbonation, and a sweet resinous mouthfeel. Wow this is a big beer, I wish I had seen that before I opened this by myself. Nice big barleywine, the alcohol needs a little time to mellow imho, but its a very flavorful brew, I wish I had another to age.

Pours light brown. Nose is biscuit, caramel, nuts, toffee, earthiness, some herbal hops. Flavor is rich biscuit, toasted and drk roasted caramel malts with herbal and earthy hops. Sweet bitter finish. Heavy body, oily mouthfeel. Light carbonation. This was pretty good. Had a big toasted and bready/biscuity malt character with evident earthiness from yeast, good or something. glad to try.
