Hazy red/brown and creamy. Caramel/toffee hints of fruit (deep and darkish) Quite toasty and savoury though. Very big booziness with kicks of liquorice very rich treacly flavours. Amazing burnt sugar finish. Still. A great snifter. Enniskillen (2061) - Bakersfield, California, USA - FEB 25, 2006
At brewery. Dried fruit, cherries, chocolate, alcohol. Taste is raspberries, chocolate, alcohol. Nice modest barleywine. skoisirius (1908) - 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. wetherel (1899) - Cupertino, California, USA - DEC 6, 2008
On tap the 2008 Strong Ale Festival. Amber color. Very oaky aroma. Some tartness. No oxidation. OK. LtDan (1808) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - DEC 7, 2008
English snow taffey and apricot in the nose. Bright auburn with no head. Flavor had resinous hops, tart unripe peaches and boose. A bit heavy and not impressive.

this is a perfect looking beer as far as im concerned.murky red body with a lovely looking head.as the head sat it left a thick wall of lacing.a little light on the aroma but the flavor was a mix of chocolate,malts,and cherries.very nice stuff indeed. 21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 12, 2003
Alcohol, bleach and vinegar combine to form the potent aroma in this one. In addition it also smells like chocolate chips straight out tha bag. A burnt orange hue with little if any head. Tastes like a combination of chocolate chips, licorice, alcohol and raisons. bth122 (1704) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2014
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.

On tap @ Bear Republic. Pours dark amber copper with very thin white head. Aroma is sweet boozy malt; raisins, port, and oak on the back. Taste is big heavy caramel malt, dry and oaky on the finish. Bitterness is restrained and easy drinking relative to the big abv here.
