Hazy deep amber beer, good off white head. Palate starts smooth but has a minerally crisp edge. Nice creamy malt base, rich but not heavy. Caramel and a trace of toffee. Good balance of orange pine hops. Mild aniseed. Creamy finish with a mellow bitter pine linger. Nice balance.

fiulijn (15360) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 29, 2012
Bottle at Freakin’ Frog, Las Vegas; vintage 2012, featuring Bravo hops
Clean dark amber color, with medium sized head. Light aroma of malt and caramel. Smooth and round mouthfeel, medium body strength; it has some caramel and malt flavor, with a light nutty touch, moderate sweetness, and correct bitterness.
Strong beer, not enough malty to be considered a Barley Wine.

bhensonb (11530) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle (’12) from the Vacaville BevMo. Pours ruddy copper with a 3 finger light beige creamy head. Aroma is earthy/floral over a substantial roast malt. Near full bodied. Flavor is very earthy, arguably floral, maybe a hint of citrus? maybe not. It’s quite balanced. Heat is detectable in the gullet - unless that light burn is from hop. Finishes on the bitter side for me, but arguably less than dry. Nice drink. Could sub for a DIPA when fresh.

Tmoney99 (11093) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Bottle 2012. Poured clear reddish brown color with a moderate frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate dark fruit, bubblegum and alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a dry smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a complex solid beer.
