This one I like a lot. aromas of prunes, raisins, dates and in the taste that seems to heighten ten fold moderately sweet. the after taste is of bitter alcohol.

Brown, slightly hazy pour, small and quickly receding head; aroma gives hints of soft alcohols and rich malt (dark fruit) complexities; each stylistic component of barley wine is cleanly and independently expressed as a harmonious symphony of olfactory and taste sensations, finally succeeding a slightly hop-induced bitter finish with warming alcohols.

Nice warmer, lots of malt, caramelize brown sugar, presentable hops with the necessary ABV for a Barley wine

Bottled 11/15/2002. A beautiful red color with a small off-white head. Very nice aroma, with hops of course but maltiness and some alcohol too. Rather sweet, very smooth. Lingers for a long time. Recommended.

Typically well done brew by Victory. This beer has a nice balance and gets better as it moves to room temperature. Not as hoppy as big foot, but probably a better balanced beer.

It has a very full bodied flavor, but it is relatively light on the tongue. It deserves to be rated very high...

Nice amber color and low carbonation. Like they say, perfect for a cold night. Drink a 6 pack and youíll feel warm and fuzzy swimming naked in a vat of icewater, assuming you donít die. Iíd recommend letting it age a bit, just cracked open a bottle from 2005 for comparison that I enjoyed a bit better.

I loved this beer a lot...I am a big fan of all the Victory beers...I thought the beer had fine hop content....but I was looking for just a little more in that category....

A little harsh for me. I think it confused my stomach a little, considering i had a ketchup soaked Patís steak (provi with) in there which i consumed 15 minutes earlier. I recognize its a good beer, I justdrank it at the wrong moment.

Poured from 22oz bottle. Beautiful syrupy amber with an aggressive head Which dissipates quickly. Fruit favors and booze dominate the palate.
