Murky copperish orange, creamy nitro-head. Solid barley wine, bright flavored. Full bodied, creamy. Some sweetness, but for the most part this is a hop bomb, especially towards the end. A good example although I like my barley wines on the hotter and maltier side. Brodie (540) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - JAN 5, 2005
Fruity aroma - mix of hops and esters. Amber color, off-white head. Rich, complex flavor, sweet malt, ripe fruit, citrus, hops, hop bitterness, and peppery alcohol (in that order). Full bodied, syrupy. Best offering from Barley’s on the night I was there. Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - JAN 25, 2003
This beer was a very dark amber brown color with a small off white bubbly head that left some trace lace. The aroma was of malt and caramel with a small hint of alcohol. The flavor was of malt and caramel and it had a medium body. The finish was a touch sweet with a slight reflection of the alcohol present. Another winner from Barley's.

On cask. Dark copper, thick and bitter. Very hoppy. Rye/oat notes.
pleasant astringent flavor. Strong, too. bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2002
Copper body with a white head. Lots of lace.
Tons of hops in the nose and finish.
Alcohol (12% ABV) is completely hidden. Dangerous beer.
I need more barley wines...

Very nice fruity aroma with hint of chocolate.. feels smooth with mild alcohol and a hint of sweetness... BeerDork1968 (1) - USA - OCT 10, 2005 does not count
Off of the firkin cask this beer was copper hued. Due to cask conditioning the pint was less than clear but the palate was divine. with a slight naturally carbonated head. Aroma is strong. The ale is well balanced for a strong ale (12%).
