Bottle. Pours a clear ruby color with a huge creamy off-white head that would not diminish and produced excellent lacing. Second most attractive brew I have seen. Heavy complex aroma of roasted malt , molasses, citrus and brown sugar. Medium to full body with a thick texture. Good flavor with heavy sweet and bitter and a long finish. Great brew for number 800.

Amber with a lasting white head. Intense malt aroma with lots of peach and pine hops behind it. Intense and huge sweet malty flavour with lots of pine hops for a near balance. Too sweet and big to drink a lot, but a wonderful sip!

Tap at CBC, May 2012. It pours orange-amber, with a thick off-white head. The nose is spice, honey, hot cross bun, sweet fruit, grass and pine. The taste is wood, leather, lemon pith, varnish, grass, resin, golden syrup, booze, spice, grass and hot cross buns, with a long, warming-bitter finish. Full body and moderate carbonation. Overall a good hoppy barley wine, which I think I would prefer with a few years on it.
