AdamGott (386) - Idaho Falls, Idaho, USA - DEC 23, 2012
copper orange pour - aroma of pine and grapefruit - rich brown sugary malt flavor followed by orange/grapefruit and all of these flavors linger. The alcohol is evident but everything is at an almost perfect mix.

mjs (5372) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2015
(Bottle, 0.65 l - 2012 Vintage, 20150821) The beer poured deep copper coloured and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had raisins, pine and sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, biscuits, sweetness, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and quite intensely bitter. A brew with good aroma and disappointigly thin taste.

degbert (1403) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2015
Bottle, 2012 release. Pours a deep red-amber with a slight orange tinge and a light tan, mixed-grain, lacy, sticky head. Nose is blood orange, turbinado sugar, dried apple, toast, and maple. Dry on the front of the tongue, with definite earthy and rye bread notes; it stays dry and a little hot all the way through to the back of the palate. Hops bitterness kicks in in the mid-palate; it isn’t a hot sweet mess like some barleywines, though you can definitely sense the ABV. Finish has herbal and camphor notes, along with the booze heat. Restrained and quite good.
