Sweeet cherries, toffee, and brown sugar notes meet the nose while a light and slightly hazy plum pour sustains a thin white ring and no lacing. The palate is overall sweet, but there is a welcomed bitter finish. Dark sweet cherries, brown sugar, toffee, wood, hints of molasses and bitterness. Light body and moderate carbonation. Overall, while softly sweet this was an enjoyable barley wine. TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Pours a nice brown color with almost tan head. Dark fruit, whiskey, and sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes sweet. I’m not usually a fan of barleywines, but they did a pretty darn good job with this one. tdubesq (14) - - MAY 17, 2014
Whiskey aroma thst Pours dark reddish brown. Thin Carmel head. Sweet malt finished with alcohol and oak overtones. Hops are well balanced and you can feel the alcohol on your tongue.

Tasted at a bottle share in a hotel room after the most recent Jackie-O’s bottle release. Mostly clear red orange color. Thin off-white head. Couple bits of lace. Lots of caramel, dark fruit in the nose. Bigger body. Smooth, lightly soft, lighter carbonation. Tropical fruity hop notes. Moderate sweet taste, light bit of tartness. Light bit of spiciness. Alright barley wine, for me. I don’t care for them being this tropical fruity. phaleslu (10456) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2014
