Bottle: The aroma consists of toffee, caramel, light wood, and some oxidation. It pours a somewhat cloudy orangish-brown with a small beige head that quickly fades to a thin film. The flavor starts with caramel and toffee. The finish has some aged citrus hops and oxidation. Itís medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, it tastes like a aged and oxidized Barley Wine.

Hearty dark malt body. Rich and dripping with winter beer seasonings. Sweet toffee notes with raisin and caramel. Some brown sugar character and perhaps a bit of rye spice. Grass and orange peel.

Bottle from Belmont Station. Pours hazy dark glowing amber with a beige creamy head. Aroma is quite malty with some floral aspects. Med body. Flavor is an English ESB morphing into a barley wine. Quite nice.

Reid (1988) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 3, 2011
12 oz single from "Lifesource". S.Salem. $1.75 THis beer is listed as 8.6% on the bottle Dark murky brown/amber ale with a lovelly thick light tan head. Pretty hoppy aromas..resiny,spruce like type...a little caramel malt. Despite the hoppy nose the flavour is full on chewy,toffee,caramel maltiness..hops you can feel them underneath..stopping this from being over sweet. Nice palate..strong and smooth..very chewy. Overall a very very nice malty winter ale.
