UPDATED: FEB 19, 2016 2012 version on draft at BPP. Dark amber. The good kind of age for a barleywine. Light cardboard mixing with aged toffee malt. Good for the age but probably shouldn’t be aged any further. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 23, 2006
Draught 05’ vintage @ Brouwer’s Café during Hard Liver 2006: Dirty caramel, moderate to large foamy head, very nice lacing. Nose of alcohol, slight hop, otherwise fairly non-descript. Fairly heavy citrus rind on the tongue, low malt profile, with alcohol not being as strong as suggested by the nose. Does trailer off with a bit of alcohol heat tho. Moderate body and mouthfeel. Finish is fairly hot... alcohol seems to have become too apparent at this stage.   Simmer down naw! Sammy (12837) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2014
On tap at Bottleworks. Rich malty beer, some odd flavours. Worth a try,drinkable. DSG (15256) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 16, 2015
[3/1/15] Draught at Beveridge Place Pub in Seattle. 2011 edition. Hazy amber. Aroma of malt, caramel, dried fruits, vinous oxidation note, stale hops, a bitterish note and a finish with some alcohol. Rounded mouthfeel. Hawksfan17 (890) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 20, 2008
Sweet barley, rice, red licorice aroma. Brown in color. Barley in the flavor and besides that it is just sweet and syrupy. The only beer I had that was not watery.
