degbert (1481) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2015
Bottle, 2012 release. Pours a deep red-amber with a slight orange tinge and a light tan, mixed-grain, lacy, sticky head. Nose is blood orange, turbinado sugar, dried apple, toast, and maple. Dry on the front of the tongue, with definite earthy and rye bread notes; it stays dry and a little hot all the way through to the back of the palate. Hops bitterness kicks in in the mid-palate; it isn’t a hot sweet mess like some barleywines, though you can definitely sense the ABV. Finish has herbal and camphor notes, along with the booze heat. Restrained and quite good.

thedm (5215) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUL 17, 2015
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light brown orange colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was musty. The mildly vinous mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering mild vinous hop aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of mildly vinous dough hops and malt. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

hayduke (4123) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 15, 2015
On tap at the brewpub in Portland. Pour was amber gold with with a dingy white head. Nose of rich caramel malts and fruit. Medium plus body. Flavor is sweet caramel malts, dark ripe fruit, and floral hops. Finishes with some alcohol burns Seems like it could use some additional aged to smooth out.
