Butters (3686) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Sampled at the Blue Christmas tasting 2012. Clearish amber copper pour with small tan head. Smells of sweet pine and vanilla, but not like oak aged, just plain vanilla. Sweet caramel and alcohol and pine on the on the flavor. Very boozy.

Sammer (1006) - Plano, Texas, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle. Taste has a bit of everything, thick malt, hops, charred wood and hay, with a nice blend of booze tossed in. Nice.

wlajwl (3557) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Aroma is malts, a hint of sweetness and a mint/clean element. The flavor is medium sweet (caramel) malts, fruit, a syrup note and a decently warming finish.

On draft at the Brass Tap, pours a burnt caramel color with aromas of toffee, caramel, light dark fruit and some grapefruit. Flavors follow suit, light sweetness up front with a boozy aftertaste.

AdamGott (386) - Idaho Falls, Idaho, USA - DEC 23, 2012
copper orange pour - aroma of pine and grapefruit - rich brown sugary malt flavor followed by orange/grapefruit and all of these flavors linger. The alcohol is evident but everything is at an almost perfect mix.

Great barley wine, glad I bought it. I really like it. Wish I had more around. I got it at a special store at a high price...

Pours a deep brown with a thick creamy head. Big toffee, spicy hops and burnt caramel notes in aroma. Thick creamy body, big spicy hops and burnt caramel taste. Finishes with a creamy finish. Pretty good.

rjwhite41 (40) - osceola, Iowa, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Bottled 7-18-12. 22 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber with a thick fluffy off white head. Lighter in color than most barley wines. Smells malty, grassy, and floral. Tastes like crystal malts, grassy, and boozy. Body is moderate for style and the boozy finish burns for far too long. Not sweet enough for my tastes and not very complicated. There are better barley wines out there.

BrewBoxer (1765) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Draft. Pours a ruby red cloudy color. Nice head that lightly remains. Abv is not as present as expected. Tastes boozier and a little more flavorful as it warms up ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
