On tap a clear wine like orange, tiny ring of white head. Smells of clove, sweet malt and cherry, gum and juice. Taste is initial sweetness with cherry and fresh fruit there. Then it calms with a residual sourness and overripe fruit. Very layered and awesome

Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Hazy amber color with compact beige head. Good depth of malts, good body structure, the right sweetness, elegant all round, but also with a strange ester and soap aroma, candies, so I wonder which yeast was used here, and if the mild sourness comes from the spelt or because its not too fresh.
But its a very positive experience.

Andrew196 (1809) - Katy, Texas, USA - APR 20, 2016
Pours a deep amber, thin head, light beige. Rich caramel, plum sweet aroma, some raspberry in the aroma. Full mouthfeel, some barleywine qualities here, grapes, roasted toffee, caramel, but lots of deep sweetness to it, a tad boozy in the end.

Smoothsippin (48) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Pours Amber with a thin beige head. Spicy sweet to the nose and the mouthfeel is similar. Tart and flavorful on the swallow with a pleasant lingering. The difference in the malt makes for a nice change of pace. Enjoyed it. Reminds me of a good whiskey, something to savor over a period of time.

22 oz bottle poured at a tasting. Best by 6/17/15. Oops. Did this keep fermenting in the bottle? Tastes even stronger than the already sturdy abv offering, and its hardly close. Caramel amber color. Comes off as a barleywine. Tomato juice barleywine? Wheat finish. Need to try a fresh bottle of this. Ill actively seek one out if possible, and rerate. All things considered, pretty good.

JaBier (7705) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - OCT 7, 2015
Bottle shared by a friend. Clear copper pour with a thin beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, booze and slight banana. Malty and caramelly flavor with lager yeast before a boozy and nutty finish.

Fantomasus (291) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 7, 2015
Pours a beautiful caramel amber with a fizzy tan head of loose bubbles (aggressive pour). Would rate a five for appearance but, its flat looking. I know thats true to style but... Aroma is a bit simple but still very nice. Tons of malt, some floral hops, and alcohol. Taste is near perfect balance but theres some glue in there? Palate is nice as well but the slight stickiness adds to the sensation that youve been licking stamps. Of beers that I consider good; this is better than average. I wouldnt need to drink it or try it again.
