A - Served a cloudy brown-black color with half-finger of frothy khaki colored ehad. The head fades slowly leaving behind some good lace. S - Aroma is a mix of rich caramel malts with lots of citrus hops with some earthy hops and roasted character. T - Starts off with some big rich roasted caramel malts with some caramelized malts and brown sugar and some light citrus hops. Through the middle some more earthy hops come through with some bitterness. The finish is a mix of sweet caramel malts with some light bitterness, dark fruit, light brown sugar, and a touch of booze. M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and warming finish. D - Very drinkable. Nice big malty profile with enough hops and body to keep a good balance.

On tap at Triple Rock pouring up clear amber to brown with garnet hues and lasting tan head that leaves behind spotty lacing. The aroma is sweet with malts and then picks up sweet dark fruity esters and a bit of roasted maltiness. The taste begins smooth and sweet and then becomes somewhat roasty with malts followed by sweet prunes, sweet dates and a bit of hoppiness from seemingly pine like hops. Consuming more and more of this I notice the level of roasted malts becomes formidable and does a good job balancing out the hops and sweet dark fruity esters and booziness. Solid brew.

Draft. Dark brown beer with a cream colored head. Light toffee aroma. Toffee and light grapefruit flavor. Medium-plus bodied. Toffee and light grapefruit lingers with light earthiness.

marcus (6343) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 13, 2012
On tap at Triple Rock. Pours black with a decent tan head and a treacle aroma. There is a hearty chocolate and dark molasses flavor with a dry finish.

robertjm (761) - Albany, California, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Draft at Triple Rock - Pours very nice looking head. About one finger in snifter. Ruby read color held up to skylight. Very slight piney aroma. Definitely resiny piney flavor. No real malt character. Light body/mouthfeel for a barleywine. To me more of a dark IPA than a barleywine. Either that or a thin Bigfoot, just not as bitter. Take your pick.

joeneugs (3119) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 6, 2012
On draft at the brewery. It pours orangy brown with a small off white head. The aroma is very fruity with berries, cherries and hints of caramel and chocolate. The flavor is alcoholic with some pine, cherry and hints of cocoa and caramel. It has a strong bitter finish. Pretty nice.
