3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep medium amber; really nice lace patterns. Smooth, weighty and syrupy mouthfeel. HUGE caramel and toffee flavors throughout. Notes of molasses. Fairly mild hops (English slant), but they were nice (sweet grass; mildly bitter). Tasty beer, but the sweetness kind of weared on me.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, coompliments of Joe with some friends. Pours a light orange red shade with white small head and barely any lacing. Notes of pine, syrupy honey, cherry, sugar, citrus hops, vanilla, and burnt toast. Light bodied for a barleywine. Nothing too memorable from this beer. Just ok.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz. Bottle. Winooski Beverage Wear house. Almost clear amber color with thin white head. Nose is caramel, toffee and the hops that they speak of. (Bravo). Flavor is malt forward with hops an after thought. Molasses, honey, figs, brown sugar and some citrus hops to cut the sweetness. Overall for the price it is a nice Barley Wine.

Tap. Pours clear deep amber with a medium creamy off-white head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is pine, citrus and wood. Flavor is medium sweet malty, with caramel, pine and citrus notes. Light bitter finish. Very alcoholic throughout, including a strong warming finish. Nothing special.

Pours clear copper color with light tan head. Molasses, pine and grapefruit aromas with some alcohol. Sweet molasses and toasted malt flavors with some citrus and pine. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. A decent hoppy American style barley wine.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle. Rating #82. Real good looking beer, dark red/brown with a bit of the red giving off a glow. Aroma is pretty much all soapy hops with a little pine. Nice flavor though, hops came through nicely, but it also had some toffee and dried fruit. Pretty tasty. (2613)

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Widmer brew pub. Pours very light orange almost more like a pale ale or ipa, not as cloudy as most barley wines. Aroma was sweet with a caramel aroma. Taste was sweet and smooth but not overly exciting. Decent brew but a bit less than i was expecting for 11 percent.
