BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 7, 2004
Golden bronze color, a touch of ruby. Light creamy white head. The aroma is faint as is the flavor, no mistaking the gravity though with a nice hop bite followed by the alcohol. Nice mix of aroma balanced between the malts. Definately feel the alcohol, but not necissarily taste it. The aroma really developes in this one as it goes on.

Pailhead (5374) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JAN 8, 2006
Bottle: Courtesy of JCW. Aroma of sweet citrus, toffee, light honey, and slight hints of banana bread. Pours a transparent amber with a small white ring for a head. Caramel and toffee up front. Slight hints of banana bread, honey, and candi sugar. A light bitterness is added in the finish. Sticky and syruppy mouthfeel.

gyllenbock (5343) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle, thanks Eddan. A bit hazy reddish/orange with a medium head. Sweet with toffee, malt, light bread and some hints of orange in the finish. Not bad but a bit one-dimensional.

onceblind (5147) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2013
At Big Beers, Belgians, & Barleywines Fest 2013. Clear orange copper with a sticky aroma of caramalts and grapefruit pulp...by aroma alone I would have guessed this to be a DIPA. Flavor is smooth and sweet with toffee and caramel malts dominating, along with some sticky grapefruit and piney hops. Strong bitterness tempered by strong sweetness.

Zwicklemania 2011 – Widmer Brothers Brewery
Brown in color clear with a thin head. Tons of malt and raisin malt aroma. Big barrel aging flavors and thick sweet malts. This was a tasty beer. Warms up well and was great for the cold day. Dried fruit flavors and finish.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a paperthin off white head that diminshes to nothing. The aroma is booze oak and fruit. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet malt and light booze, not much going on with this one.

dwyerpg (4754) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Not all that much in the aroma for a barley wine. Maybe some honey, but not really molasses. I really love this style but as usual I just don’t think these guys make beer that’s all that great. This a low barley wine score for me.

thornecb (4689) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Pours deep amber into a snifter. Tan medium length head recedes to hug rim. Dark caramel aromas. Sweet caramel upfront turning to mild earth in the still sweet finish.
