Pours a cloudy mahogany brown with thin light tan head, minimal lacing. Aroma of caramel, herbal hops, citrus, vanilla, chocolate, cream, and a slight nutty character. Flavor matches well and is a great drink, only knock is a really slick mouthfeel, almost like it just wants to slide down my throat...it’s a conspiracy!
A really solid american barley wine (reminds me of a Old Numbskull). Balanced, heavy hopped (kind of bitter). Not to sweet or raisin like. Really a fine one. Vells (1967) - Rīga, LATVIA - DEC 7, 2017
Interesting aroma with some smoke, distinct maltiness, caramel, some oak and bourbon BA imapct somehow, dried fruits. Moderate sweetness with some bitterness and tartness. Enjoyable Habanero (4876) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2017
Bottled. Pours deep brown with a small tan head. Aroma of toasted caramel, toffee and quite some citrus and apricot. Flavor with alcohol. Sweet taste that ends up being more dry and a little bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice Barley indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 BytesAndBrews (66) - - JAN 29, 2017

22oz bottle. Strong plum, molasses aroma and flavor. Can feel the alcohol. Nice combo of a quad with winter. TBone (18373) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 26, 2016
Tap at CCB, Tampa. Abv 12%. Copper color, small steady off-white head, lace. Aroma has dark sugar, malts and molasses. Medium-bodied to full-bodied. Very malty, dark fruity, plum, raisin, molasses and caramalt. Notes of fresh wood too. A bit too raw brew for my liking. EricUhle (4) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2016 does not count
Bottle pour, 2013/2014 cellar- hopped barley wine with dark fruit backbone. Aroma still present however naturally must have mellowed with age. Dark brown colour with a touch of ethanol from alcohol however 10% abv masked quite nicely. kathouse (1940) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - JAN 20, 2016
Advertised at 12% at the brewery. Spicy brown with aromas of cinnamon and nutmeg. A big beer to say the least. No head but good flavor makes up for the appearance. Best one so far. Fritz123 (1597) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Bottle from 2014. Pours a muddy deep brown with small head that lasted about 20 seconds. Aroma is fruity with plums, peaches, prunes, and currants with some slight booze and barrel. The taste is similar with the aromatic fruits, thick barleywine style ale, and some booze on the finish. Well balanced though. Medium to full body, moderate carb. Slightly sweet. Really a great beer.
