Imaena (1796) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Bottle. Hazy caramel colour with a thin head. Lots of bitterness on this one and the malts are not as rich as I would have liked.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Murky Sedona pour with a cloudy eggshell head spotted with a combination of pinhead and pebble-sized bubbles. Pretty subtle aroma...light caramel and honey. Flavor shows some of the alcohol and also displays toffee, brown sugar, and a touch of citrus. Medium mouthfeel.

Theis (13286) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2014
Draught at Fermentoren. Clear red/brown - offwhite head. Freshish aroma. Ok malty. Citrus. Fruity. Barley. Ok toasted. Nice drinkability. Ok hoppy. And of course some sweetness.

mansquito (3281) - Nueva York, New York, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Proletariat, NYC tap ($9): Pours reddish with an off-white head. Aroma is a little smoky and burnt, with sugar, molasses, and some caramel. Taste is sweet, but powerfully counterbalanced against the bitterness. Certainly a sipper. Not too heavy body. Alcohol is well-covered. Pretty good.

Ibrew2or3 (6779) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 26, 2013
50cl bottle pours with a clear amber to ruby red body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up sweetness, a dash or two of prunes and figs and then a touch of smokiness. The taste starts with smooth sweet malts and then it gets into some prune and fig like sweet dark fruity esters. Toward midway a nice smooth smoky to peaty note takes over the flavor and takes everything right to the finish. This is a smooth tasty and rich barleywine. I like it.

Iphonephan (3041) - McLean, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2013
On draft at ChurckKey during its Christmas Beer tap takeover. Pours hazy brown with a bubbly off white head. Malty nose. Flavors of caramel and raisin. Medium bodied. Light carbonation. Smooth finish.

Tmoney99 (10444) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Tap. Poured clear dark copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy tropical fruit, sour citrus hop and small alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate complex bittersweet flavor with a medium complex bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good beer.

b3shine (5184) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks solid; a mostly transparent amberish orange with light beige lacing. Smells sweet and malty with notes of caramel and toffee. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. A nice example of the style.

DrSilverworm (6002) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 30, 2013
On tap at Dutch’s. Mostly hazy dark red brown color. Thin khaki head, with some loose bits of lace. Bigger body, lightly slick. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Malty, dark fruit, light spice, toasty malt. Sweet taste overall, light hint of alcohol warmth, moderate bitter. Pretty solid barley wine.

bluejacket74 (1275) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2013
500 ml bottle, I’d guess it’s about a year old more or less. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours a hazy copper color with about a half inch off-white head and some sediment floaties noticeable. There’s a small amount of lacing. The brew smells like caramel, dark fruit, toffee, herbs, and some sweet malt. It tastes like caramel, dark fruit, molasses, herbs, toffee, and some booze. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it’s chewy, coating, and easy enough to drink. I thought it was a good enough brew, definitely worth a try if you’ve never had it before.
