Pored brown from the bottle, no head great lacing. Aromas are subtle hops and malts, sweet carmel notes in the background. Flavors are of sweet carmel, maltyness with nutty undertones, subtle hop and fig notes. The Finish - carmel and nuts with a strong malt body with subtle fruity hops. Makes me think of an english barleywine with the sweetness!

Dueling Pipers is a boozy, malty affair with prominent but not entirely overpowering barrel contribution. There is a lingering bitterness that may come from aged hops, barrel tannins, or rye. BlowOffTube (501) - Michigan, USA - AUG 31, 2013

12oz bottle courtesy of joeneugs, thanks man! It pours a sort of murky mahogany body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma dishes up molasses, raisins, prunes, sticky pine infused malts and a bit of booze near the end of the draw. The taste is a rich mix of spicy rye bread and resiny pine hops as well as some molasses and then a bit of prunes and raisins. This is rich and good and pleasing from front to back and seems very barleywine like. Nice, boozy, resiny sipper, yum. daknole (11044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 27, 2013
