Chuckaduck (610) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Pours very dark brown-black with almost no light tan head. Aroma is dark fruit, alcohol, syrup, vanilla, berries. Taste is vanilla, dark fruit, alcohol; really good! This is really enjoyable. Full mouth feel. Get this.

Aroma is dark fruit, malts and mild/medium vinous. The flavor is dark fruit, grapes/vinous, malts, very little carbonation, berries/raspberries, very slight astringency and a tangy/mildly alcoholic finish.

monk191 (728) - 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!

bhensonb (10361) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 12, 2011
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.

BMan1113VR (7788) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 14, 2011
2008 bottle. $20 375ml...not sure why I bought this, but there are a couple other Italian beers locally that are over $30, so I guess this isn’t a horrible price...wait, it is! Pours with a murky brown body and a very minimal (if any head). Some alcohol legs. Aromas of brandy, brown sugar, dark fruits, raisins, almonds, red wine, red licorice, earth and tobacco. Mellow alcohol. Flavors are super sweet, licorice, prunes and ripe plums. Tons of brown sugar. Raw turbinado sugar and raw hazelnuts. Fruity. Sweet, boozy and tasty, but not worth the price. Not remotely worth it (if it was half the price, then maybe). Syrupy. Light bubbles.
