It pours a dark amber with a white head that produces a fair amount of lacing. It has aromas of dried fruits, plums, caramel, and bread malts. The initial flavors are a heavy plum flavor. There are also elements of vanilla, sweet dried fruits, and a not so bitter effect on the palate. There is a bit of higher than normal carbonation.

Copper, clear, thin white head. Smell of dark fruits, plums, port, malts, oak and vanilla. Heavy sweet, malts all over the place, fruits from the malts, this is really malt heaven. Moderate to medium bitter, resin finish. Very nice

Gription79 (2441) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - APR 28, 2015
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber, vintage is 2012. Hazy brown with thin off white head. Strong alcohol notes, fruity, warming. The maltiness is pleasant, not overly sweet or sugary. There is still plenty of hop character to keep this interesting. I find this to be a nice barley wine.

joeneugs (3981) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 16, 2015
On tap at the First St. Alehouse. It pours a dark reddish orange color with an off white head. The aroma is sweet with mixed berries, caramel and a little brown sugar. The flavor is the same with lots of fruity berries, a little mango, papaya, brown sugar and caramel. Sweet and fruity. Pretty thick on the palate as well. Kinda simple, but not bad.

Bottle @ Post-Easter Procrastination, Ulfborg. Pours hazy darkish amber with small off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and fruit, with notes of hops, touches of yeast and caramel. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt, with notes of vanilla and barrel and touches of hops. Sweetish aftertaste with bitterish notes. Well-balanced and pleasant.

olio (7367) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 10, 2015
65 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori. Bottled on 18.07.2012.
Pours clear copper color with a medium sized head. Pine needles and caramel on the nose, sweetish fruits, resin, the hops have vanished almond completely. Sweet orange and caramel malts on the flavor, some resinous hops, quite faint on the flavor too. Very smooth and quaffable, alcohol dangerously well hidden. Tasty.

Braudog (5978) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Old Embalmer ’12, bottled 7/19/12. I’m tellin’ you, this Total Wine carries some old sh*t. I just bought it last week. But for once, an old beer on the shelf is a good thing. This has aged gracefully and is unbelievably smooth. This goes down devilishly delicious, without a high-alcohol burn, instead drinking like a finessed nightcap. (#5949, 3/27/2015)
