Pours dark reddish brown with a cream colored head of foam. Aroma is candied figs, dates, and dark fruity malt. Taste is deep malty goodness. Dates, figs, and dark fruit dominate the palate with caramel and oak nuances. Light carbonation and easy drinkability. Very nice barleywine.

minch25 (576) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 21, 2012
2010 bottle. Deep mahogany red body; thin head. Sweet malty caramel aroma. Flavor - same. Not bad, a bit on the simple side, maybe a little over sweet, just not a standout barley wine.

3.2
badhack (571) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 7, 2012
2011 vintage. Brown, the color of cola. Just enough fizz to remind you it’s beer. Smells of yeast, cola, dark fruit and a hint of berry. Taste is subtle, hints of malt and chocolate, alcohol. Sweet and heavy on the tongue. Caramel and hops in the finish.

graham515 (537) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 8, 2010
Pours brown with ruby red highlights into the glass and an off white head. Aroma is caramel and dark fruit. Flavor is a bit odd to me with a very unique sweetness not unlike a cola. Body a bit thin. Not really what I was hoping for.

3.4
natejgood (533) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - JUL 18, 2011
Pours a clear medium brown/amber with an light tan head. The head does not go down quickly. Smells hoppy and sweet with hints of citrus. Lots of malts and molasses. Quite a strong aroma. Sweet and malty with less hop than I would have thought. Can taste a bit of alcohol in this beer. Very smooth with tiny bubbles, but a bit syrupy in the mouth. This beer has a lot of flavor but may be a bit too sweet for my liking without enough bitterness to cut the sweetness.

4.2
BeerKurve (520) - - FEB 12, 2014
Hazy red/crimson color with mild carbonation and a filmy head. Aroma of grapefruit, piney hops, caramel, toffee and orange peel. Flavor starts out quite malty with notes of caramel and dark fruity notes before settling to a piney & citrus hop finish; Mellow flavor. Body is moderate and mildy carbonated. Pretty good!

Courtesy of OldMrCrow. Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a slight head. Aroma is mostly vanilla and caramel. Tastes of caramel, wood, nut, and a bit of malt. Finishes with a nice alcohol presence. The palate is mostly sugary and spicy. Thanks Carl.

Jethro6191 (508) - Indiana, USA - AUG 13, 2010
2008 bottle. Dark amber with an off-white head that laces the glass. Malt and vanilla notes with a slight hint of alcohol. Sweet mellow flavor. Full bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and a low level of carbonation.

3.9
Crispy34 (496) - Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2015
2013 edition bomber. Aroma is barley wine with lots of yeast present. Appearance is brown with a tan head. Taste is a smooth barley wine flavor that is not over powering. Not boozy, just right. Overall, a well aged barley wine. Will buy and age again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
