3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours ruby red with a thin head. Syrupy, as expected from a barleywine. Strong aroma and flavor of caramel. Sweet with a definite hop and alcohol presence, but not so hoppy or boozy as to overshadow the malty, caramel flavors. A solid barleywine that I’d drink again.
650 ml bottle. Number 16 bottling, about 2 years old. Clear brownish color, fast dying head. Sweet fruity and malty with some dark dried fruit, some caramel and toffee sweetness, brown sugar, sweet malty into the finish. Standard but very well made. monk191 (2023) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 22, 2016
A very nice example of a barleywine. Pours a beautiful dark ruby red with a tan head. Smells of barley and orange. Taste is very orange, with caramel and vanilla, and some warming booziness in the finish. Had on tap at the brewery. vanvenlo (1992) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2016

On tap at the Brewpub. Amber with a small head. Sweet with caramel, dried fruit, warming alcohol and hints of oak. Dogbrick (14532) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 29, 2015
Sample during the 10th Annual Day Before Labor Day Party on 09/06/2015. Clear reddish-amber color with a medium thin light beige head that dissipates quickly to a wispy film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Malt, fruit and caramel in the nose. Medium to full body with flavors of caramel malt, cherry and slight hops. The finish is chewy with a fruity and malty aftertaste. Decent overall. jdchamp (34) - - JUN 7, 2015
This one stole my heart. While debating what to get next at a World of Beer, our server brought me this beauty - on sample. Great lingering taste and flavor. This is one to include if you?re in the mood for barleywines. My wife is taking it from me right now... miyauchi38 (1117) - chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2015

Rich vanilla and Carmel taste I think. Weird iPa. Not bad not great. Had this poured in small glass from draft at the American Beer Classic 2015.
