2009 reserve on cask in brandy sifter at pub: sparkling clarity in ruddy brown pour, mild carbonation. Brassy caramel malt and fusel alcohol aroma. Floury nose with complex caramel malt flavors blunted by harsh alcohol in a too-thin medium body, some oily hold on rim but not ’legs’.

brokensail (13231) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 9, 2014
On tap @ Third St Aleworks. This is the 2009 Version. Not sure why this needed to be aged 4 years, but okay. Sort of rust, copper colored pour with a small off-white head. Aroma is intensely sweet. Oxidized sherry notes, port, and chocolate. Tons of sugar, caramel, and dates. A bit of booze as well. Flavor is really, really sweet. Lots of sugar and caramel. Dates, slight sherry, some vinous fruits, and maybe a touch of chocolate. Not terrible, just not great either.

From tap at Toronado, Barley Wine Fest 2010. Pours murky brown with a small tan head. Aroma is yeasty and caramelish. Light fruity. Sweet and dense caramelish with a light hops fruity note. Bitter, caramelish and dry finish.

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - SEP 17, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2007 Thick and rich in appearance, texture, and flavour. It has a deep, slightly reddish brown colour and it is somewhat cloudy, giving it a different and memorable appearance if not exactly ideal. it has a nicely laced, long lasting, frothy head that is indicative of the thick & frothy, but not fizzy, texture. The flavour has a definite sweetness to it, but this wonderfully offsets the strong, rich, full bodied flavours and the hoppy bitterness. Heavy duty, but also very drinkable and memorable.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 6, 2007
Draft at the brewpub. Poured a murky brown color with red highlights. Head was thick and off white with decent lacing. Smelled of raisin, port wine, and molasses. Thick, full bodied mouth feel. Very sweet on the tongue with lots of raisin flavor accented by molasses and light brown sugar.

DenverLogan (866) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - AUG 16, 2007
On tap at brewery. Dark amber; min. head. Aroma and flavor of Scotch wood, bitter fruit rind, molassas & booze. Very rich with significant bitterness. Some funky tropical fruit rind finish lingers. Big, flavorful but a bit rough.
