22 oz bottle shared by Tmoney99 in October 2012. Pours a clear reddish amber color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel, ripe fruits, a strange bubble gum note, some resiny hops, earthy, wood, pretty decent, alcohol is warming.

Draft. Rich amber beer with a dark cream colored head. Citrus (grapefruit) aroma with light summer fruits. Grapefruit and light tropical fruit flavor with plenty of malt and caramel. Medium bodied. Tropical fruits and grapefruit lingers with malt and a light sweetness. Well balanced. Easy drinking for 9.5%.

douglas88 (8146) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 3, 2013
Bottle at Vinno Rosso thanks to Ray. Pours a mostly clear dark copper color with a medium white head. A big sweet nose with caramel and fruit, some heat. The flavor is really nice: malt forward, big strawberry, some toffee, caramel, very rich. A bit of heat which is fine. Very good. Reminds me of Uinta BW.

Ibrew2or3 (8024) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Sampled at Toronado 2009 Barleywine Festival. Pours clear deep gold with copper core and nice off white head. The mild aroma has notes of dark fruitiness, some sweet malts and floral hops. The taste is very much to English barleywine style to me with rich chewy dark fruity esters coming from prunes, cherries and ripe plums. It slowly takes on sweet malts and a hint of caramelization. Nice brew that is right on the mark now.

drowland (7868) - Georgia, USA - SEP 21, 2012
9/21/12. On tap at Kickback’s. Clear red amber pour with a nice fluffy khaki head that sticks and laces plenty. Sweet dark fruit aroma with touches of alcohol, plenty of sugars, and citrusy hops. Dark fruits, must, and sugars in the flavor with hoppy bitterness and some citrus. Surprisingly not terrible.

bottle at perkeo’s gathering. decent barley wine. some prune and fig aromas, golden syrup sweetness with some vanilla essence and pear schnapps, quite full-bodied, perhaps a little sweeter in the finish than i would like but still quite good

gunnar (7653) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 13, 2014
Shared bottle at Cardinal. Pours clear dark golden with a small fast disappering white head. Aroma is malty,plums, earth and cellar. Taste is moderate sweet with a hoppy dry finish, spicy and minty, nice.

22. Pours a crystal clear rubied medium amber with a dense and creamy tan head that sticks around, leaving deeply ringed sheets of lace. Big fresh pineapple and orange nose, very fragrantly tropical. Creamy thick body. Toast, caramel, oranges, and pineapple on the mid palate. Very pleasing to drink fresh as a DIPA. Not sure I see enough malt complexity in this to age as a BW, but they can put vintages on the label every year if they want.

Sampled from bottle at James’s November 2012 tasting courtesy of Blipp. Pours an amber body with off white lacing. Aroma is sweet malt, soft hop, grass, and fruit. Mouthfeel is light and carbonated with notes of fruity malt, light floral hops, very light bitter grapefruit, and light alcohol in the finish.
