3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
