Tap at Snallygaster 2014. Typical American style Barleywine. Hit with piney hops upfront, ended with a bitter sweetness. slowrunner77 (12051) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 12, 2014
"Dark fruit, caramel, and slight chocolate combine harmoniously in this aged (our draft was 3 years old) barleywine. Big alcohol was evident, but was warming, not hot. Full feel, slightly low on the carbonation, likely because of the age. Good brew. Still had a little hop bite even." skoisirius (1909) - Earth, Washington, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Tap at Jernigan’s a few weeks ago. Nice fruit malt nose, hint of booze. Straw and elements of bread with a boozy apple on the flavor. Little thin but good. baraciisch (3239) - California, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Clear caramel orange... Aroma of sticky toffee, caramel, oak, syrup... Flavor is fairly balanced, sticky caramel malts balanced by dry bitter earthy hops, more bitter than your average bw... Decent

Aroma of molasses funk, amber malts and maple syrup. Appears a dark crimson/amber with a thin foam rim. Taste is syrupy amber malts, cinnamon, toffee, biscuit malts, and some hop presence. Finish is very boozey. Overall, this is very balanced and complex. I’d give this an A rating.

Draft at Brass Rail. Honey color. Not as much aroma as I was hoping for. Light fruit, caramel. Light sweetness. Creamy texture. Some warming alcohol. Nice balance of malts and hops. Would get again.

March 24, 2014 - on tap at the Stone bistro. Opaque muddy brown pour with some head and lacing. Aroma and taste were sweet malt and piney hops. Seemed to be more of a double ipa than barley wine. douglas88 (9188) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 18, 2014
On tap at Baileys. Pours a deep amber color with a medium white head. A big sweet malty nose with some fresh citrus. The flavor is almost reminiscent of a wheat wine to me with light grainy tartness, very earthy, sweet toffee, yeast, some fruity hops. Pretty good. A bit of heat. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Draught. Pours a very cloudy amber color with a moderate light tan head on it. Nose is slightly hoppy with some citrus elements to it, which I was pleasantly surprised over. Taste was bitter, yet had a strong bite to it; even so, it managed to stay a lighter drink, even over 10%. Not bad. Dogbrick (13018) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Sample at Rattle N Hum. This brew pours a muddy orange color with a medium frothy white head that recedes gradually. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, pine and malt. Full-bodied with flavors of resiny hops, malt and fruit. The finish is malty up front with a lingering piney aftertaste. Above average overall.
