3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft pour at Sybarite Pig in Boca Rayon, FL. A very cloudy amber pour into a tulip. This head disappears quickly. Medium lacing. Aroma is rather mild with with a floral alcohol dominance. The taste is first alcohol. Its very dominant. You really pick up the sweetness of figs or plums with a malty aftertaste. Mouth feel is smooth and refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle. The biggest flavor here is booze. Then there are figs and dates, but mostly booze throughout. Amber red color, film moreso than foam on top. Aroma is hot melted sugar and cinnamon. Taste is warm like youíd expect with an abv that weighs in at 11.1%, butterscotch, dried fruit. Mouthfeel is sizzling and itís medium bodied. Overall, itís a little too hot for my taste. Iíd like to try it after it has aged a bit and that alcohol settles down some.

Bottle 355 ml from erzbierschof.ch. Misty reddish with thin and fleeting foam. Thick malted aromas, very toffy, spices, alcohol and dry fruits. The mouth is average syrupy, liquor-like, very sweet and fruity (raisin, dry apricot, plum), spicy notes of white pepper and vanilla, barley sugar, not too alcoholic on the taste, acid point. Warming beer to be sipped.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Single bottle from Julios. Poured into a tulip glass. A gorgeous clear deep ruby brew. Little head, but with a fine carbonation. Aroma of sweet cherry and plum with a bit of alcohol. Flavor is deep and sweet, but kept well in balance. More cherry and plum notes. Some dry tartness on the backside. A good sipper.

To me, this beer looks, smells and tastes just like what you would get from the bottom of a jug of apple cider, only sweeter with some alcohol. Way too malty sweet for me. Seems more like a sweet juice than a beer.....

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Reddish orange, murky, head is a tiny ring of white foam. Aroma is very complex, orange, toffee, cloves, banana, more complex as it warms. Body is moderate and very little carbonation. Warming and spiced, orange and vanilla slight funk, biscuit and lemon. Very good, but minimal carbonation detracts.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2011 bottle. Pours a translucent amber with just a thin ring of beige foam around the edge of the glass. The aroma has notes of biscuit, toffee, dark candied fruits, apple. Taste is nutty sweet, toffee, a little bit of jam, and a warming in the chest to accompany the swallow. Definitely a sipper, but if you have a little while to sit and contemplate the beer, I think youíll be able to appreciate this one much more. Served at cellar temperature.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2013 Sat around for 6 mo. Sweet and well done. Well done. Definitely a sipper. Fairly hoppy. Nice complexity. Like most ive tried at weyerbacher, very good, not elite barley wine though.

Poured from a 12 oz.bottle while on vacation in SC. Amber in color with no head. Sweet, malty, fruity aroma. You can definitely feel and taste the alcohol in this beer. The taste is sweet but not overly-sweet. A nice sipping beer to be enjoyed slowly.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours a hazy dark amber with very little tan head which went away quickly, no lacing. Aroma of caramel, some bread and fruits also some booze. Taste is sweet mostly malts and caramel flavors mixed with the warmth that you get from the alcohol. Fruity finish not bad at all, very nice.
