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.

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.

ben4321 (4887) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Location: 22 oz bottle from Whole Foods Bowery, 3/15/13

Aroma: The nose has a nice hop presence, some floral/earth, pine, wood, and caramel/toffee notes as well
Appearance: This one pours a mostly clear golden color with a smallish head and light lace
Flavor: The is fairly heavy malt flavored as well as fairly bitter with a bit of boozy flavor to it also
Palate: This one has a fairly full body, creamy and thick, medium heat, and a somewhat dry finish
Overall Impression: Solid stuff overall. Fairly big across the board with lots of malt flavors, hop flavors, and some booze. Pretty good stuff. Leans almost toward the DIPA direction.

jkwood04 (4882) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 3, 2012
22oz bottle in a snifter. Pours copper/ruby with a lacy, light tan head. Aroma of a lot of citrusy hops, some caramel and toffee, and alcohol. Flavor the same, with not enough malts to cover up the alcohol. Average texture. The hoppiness is great, but the lack of malts to balance that and the alcohol takes away from this beer.

ClubGonzo (4817) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours a deep hazy orange-amber body with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is caramel, nougat, nuts, vanilla, deep malty tones, hints of red berries, toffee and bread. Taste is vanilla, booze, caramel, burnt sugar and hints of rum, white sugar and bread. Medium body and carbonation. Pretty nice American barley wine with no great surprises.

On draft at the Brass Tap, pours a burnt caramel color with aromas of toffee, caramel, light dark fruit and some grapefruit. Flavors follow suit, light sweetness up front with a boozy aftertaste.

wlajwl (4807) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Aroma is malts, a hint of sweetness and a mint/clean element. The flavor is medium sweet (caramel) malts, fruit, a syrup note and a decently warming finish.

AirForceHops (4804) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 18, 2013
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.
