( 22oz bomber thanks to mar) Pours a clear yellow-orange with very low head. Some oily bubbles. Nose of citrus, grapefruit, caramel and quite bready. The taste is pretty bitter with a linger of grapefruit oils. Wish it was sweeter.

1 L flip top purchased and rated fresh(notes). Had many times since. Originally this poured a clear dark amber/copper color with a small beige head collapsing to a thin film. The aroma and flavor had big caramel malt, dark fruits, orange citrus hops some floral notes. Fresh this was an American barley wine for sure. In more recent tastings, original bottles are more sweet malt, caramel, toffee and dark fruits. One of my first purchases once I found this site at my first stop to Bruisin Ales.

Poured a hazy amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, floral hops, caramel malts, resin, and dark fruits. Taste of caramel malts, juicy dark fruits, pine, tobacco, resin, and a bitter hoppy finish, with some light alcohol as well. Thanks to Steve for this one!

This barley wine pours a medium orange gold color from a 1 liter bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is caramel, fruity and sweet. A medium to lighter bodied barleywine. The malts are fruity and very sweet. The hops are earthy. Nice balance. Good carbonation. Kind of sweet and malty, with a bunch of hops. Its kind of the in that 2xIPA and Barley wine mix, its not really either one. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is sweet.

Seriously? I get to rate this first? WooHoo! Iím awesome! Huzzah for me! Anyway, this made a surprise appearance the 2007 Asheville Brewgrass. I accidentally cut line to score some of this, so I guess I burned a lot of Karma getting this. Itís caramel colored, with a big beige head. Huge aroma, with plenty of sweet caramel aromas and plenty of huge hop aromas. Lots of sweet flavors at first, like toffee and some fruity apple-y notes. Then it melds seemlessly into a huge piney, sticky hop finish. Seems a little raw, but not in a negative way. Good now, and i would love to let one sit for a year or so.

More classy names form Sweetwater. The body was deep orange to amber. The aroma was massive grapefruit with some bread crust. The taste had some oranges and bread crust. There was also some almond character. On the hoppy end of the style, this had alcohol burn in the finish.

1 liter- batch 1. Pours a medium to light amber with a thinning white head. Aroma is light boozy, alcohol is apparent upfront, still ok though- tons of big sweet caramel and sugary malts, lots of citrusy hops, fruity as well- amarillo-like. Flavor is citrusy with lots of big sweet malts, sugary almost, with an earthy leather thing going on in the end- good bitter hops to counter the sweet malts,
