Bill Becker (410) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 12, 2014
2012 edition. No sound when I popped the cap, itís a very dark brown, almost black, with a very fine layer of foam. The smell has some Port like aromas coming from it...dark fruits, and a sweetness to it that seems to come with all Port like brews. Made with candi sugar and it tastes it. That kind of drowns out the promising Port flavour I expected from the smell. Thereís a strange hop bitterness that I canít quite put my finger on but it isnít all that forward so thatís okay. Medium bodied with surprisingly little heat coming from the ample abv. I sense no carbonation. All in all, itís pretty good but NOT at +$19 for the 375ml bottle. I know, no one forced me to buy it but I had to check it out. ;^)

monk191 (1098) - California, USA - FEB 14, 2014
A good, boozy barleywine. Pours a very nice cloudy red with a thin white head. Smells very smooth, a bit of booze and caramel. Taste is very malty, with a bit of chocolate. Very sweet aftertaste that lingers. Had in the bottle at La Trappe's Italian event. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy brown - red beer, good creamy head. Sweet malt nose. Soft smooth palate. Sweet caramel malt with some toffee. Figs and dates when the beer is cold. As it warms up there is honey, guava and traces of red wine and aniseed. Smooth creamy finish. Tiny bit of bitterness in the aftertaste. Delicious!! Unusual and highly drinkable!

Bottle at Open Baladin. Beer list said 12%. Pours garnet with a few bubbles. Very fruity aroma.Very fruits de bois. Med body. Little carb. Flavor is lightly herby medicinal, but still fruits de bois. Sweet but not too strongly so. The fruit tends to cut the sugar. Amazingly there is no heat. Tho my brow begins to emit droplets. Brilliant beer.
