COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dangerously drinkable garnet beauty is a hop lovers delight. The intense dry-hop nose and the alcohol content are perfectly balanced for a caramel candy-like malt finish. This is a serious beer for serious beer afficionados and it only gets better with age. Cellarable for 3 years.

Palidor19 (3182) - Brandon, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2007 Be warned, this is not for a beginner. At first smell, traces of Grapefruit, and caramel. At first sip, taste of cloves, grapefruit, and caramel. The hops overpower your taste buds and the malt is very noticeable. A strong beer, drink it slowly and savor it

entertheiceman (242) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 3, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2006 Floral hops, caramel, and some fruit in the aroma. Sweet and fairly soft in the mouth, full bodied, mollases, and a strong bitterness. Nice alcohol warming. Fairly bitter this barleywine is a good example of the hop forward American style.

BrewEd (182) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - MAY 1, 2005
Bottle: Gorgeous in appearance and aroma! Much hoppier than many barlywines. Warming alcohol esthers, but the alcohol is not overy apparent.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 29, 2005
An amber orange color that glows light red when held in the light. It had no head but some white film on the top. Aroma was sweet orange and lemon hops. The alcohol was noticable in the aroma too ever so slightly. The flavor is strong hops right out of the gate. It is a little thin, and some alcohol is noticable in the finish. The finish is grassy hops and dry.

Engelsmann (651) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 24, 2005
Pours chestnut brown, with a light tan head. Aroma is very hoppy, with grassy notes. Taste is sweet, full, and very hoppy. This is a full bodied beer, with a long, full, bitter aftertaste-

nquantz (28) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 19, 2005
22 oz bottle - Pours clear, dark red with small tan head. Smooth, hoppy taste with hardly a hint of alcohol considering the high abv. In sum, a very good, and easily drinkable, version of the "western" (hoppy) Barley Wine-style beer.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2005 22 oz bottle. Served in NB worthy glass @ 63.2. Pours light red with an of white head. The nose is hoppy. Perfumy, piney, and floral aroma. The flavor is a HUGE malt, brown sugar, and mollases with a touch of bitterness at first. The midfinsh is spicy and somewhat hoppy. Tasty stuff. Thick in the mouth.
