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...

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 (1891) - 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

Wittales (626) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Appearance was clear red honey caramel with creamy diminishing off white 1 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are sweet caramel, honey, toffee malts with deep fruits, alcohol hidden well. Taste are sweet caramel, honey toffee malts,then cherry, plum, hints of pine, spices,and grass. Palate was silky creamy CO2 with meduim-full body, then long clean sweet(touch cloying) warming smooth finish. A wonderful Barrywine, might age well.

jkwood04 (3804) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 3, 2012
22oz bottle in a snifter. Pours copper/ruby with a lacy, light tan head. Aroma of a lot of citrusy hops, some caramel and toffee, and alcohol. Flavor the same, with not enough malts to cover up the alcohol. Average texture. The hoppiness is great, but the lack of malts to balance that and the alcohol takes away from this beer.
