mcberko (15016) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 15, 2012
500mL bottle, pours a murky dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma of dark fruits (raisins, grapes, black currants), caramel and toffee, and candied sugar. Flavour is extremely well-balanced, with tons of dark fruits as aforementioned, caramel malts, toffee, decent hop character, some coffee, a bit vinous (red wine) and slight sweetness. This should be rated higher than it is. Excellent depth and design on this.

Bottle from Beer Revolution. Pours ruby with a 3 finger foamy beige/tan head. Aroma of pine twigs and brown sugar. Med + body. Flavor is brown sugar, roasted caramel, and something resiny. Theres’ enough hop or something to mostly offset the typical barley wine sugar. There are unusual flavor aspects. Herby. And more herby. Damn good drink.
