This is No.13. Pours a dark amber with a thin tan head that recedes to an outer ring. Smells very nice. Got hints of pine resin, spruce and even some faint banana. Intense flavors. Bittersweet with a strong alcohol finish. banana, amber, clear, frothy, tan foam, Very bittersweet flavor. Intense. Starts sweet, then a sort of bitter fruit flavor. Strong alcohol finish. Thick feel with average carbonation. Definately a big beer with alot going on. beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - DEC 6, 2012
I didn’t quite cotton to this 2012 version. A little to sweet and strong for my taste. This dark orange brew was also a little chewy and viscous for me. Cristobal37 (1191) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 9, 2012
I’m not a big fan of the barleywine style. I’ve tried specifically those which others have rated highly. While I found this more drinkable than Anchor’s Old Foghorn, it was still quite unpleasant. Very full beer which stays on the tongue for a while. Rich alcohol flavor. Maybe I should give it another go, but didn’t like it the first time around. madvike (3285) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 12, 2012
On tap at Bridgeport Pub - Pours burnt siena with a thin foamy light tan head. Nose is dark fruit, sweet malt, peat, and a whiskey heat. Taste is pretty hot, with sweet boozy bread, light grassy hops, and bourbon-soaked raisins. Warming finish. Smooth, with a medium body. A little sweet for my tastes, but a half pint was a nice size.

Dark red pour with a small off white head. Fruity with sugary syrup flavors, a nice hop bite as well. Not great, but pretty good.
