Very nice sweet and strong. Like a good barley wine. With that cinnamon hint although was not as heavy in aftertaste.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tampa Bay Brewing in Coral Springs. Draft in a snifter. Pours a dark amber with thick head. Heavy booze aroma with some spices, roasted malts and floral. Taste is not as impressive as the aroma. Heavy booze, too light in the malts, and dry finish which is weird for a barleywine.

Tap at the brewpub. Clear orange-amber pour with a spotty head. Caramel and butterscotch - palate is moderate. Good beer but not a great barley wine.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Growler, overnighted. 3 days old when I had this. The beer pours a dark amber with slight head. Aroma is urine on baby diapers that have been sitting in the sun for a few days. Very off putting. The taste is banana and fruit stripe gum with loads of heat. There is definitely some hop presence to this but itís just very overwhelming with the alcohol. Overall, the smell just was too much and the odd mash of flavors in the beer didnít really help things out.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours clear golden with small whitehead. Little lacing, light body, low carbonation, and sweet aroma. Taste is sweet floral grain and some alcohol. 100 IBU, is this a misprint? Surprisingly good for a barley wine (rating toward the end of my evening).
