12 ounce bottle pours an amber color, aromas of honey, toffee, caramel, and some dark fruit. Flavors follow suit, with a slightly sweet honey aftertaste. Nice beer overall. phaleslu (10551) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2012
12 oz. bottle; no year, but it has to be 2011 or 2010. Pours a hazy, wood-amber color with a small, yellowed off-white head. Aroma of toffee, brown sugar, dates, raisins, rum bread, and berries. Flavor of leaves, wood, toffee, cookies, brown sugar, plums, dates, and figs. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, boozy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Lingering sweetness. Good barley wine. Nice to have a non-DFH Delaware beer on a rare occasion. JoePeesie (925) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2012
Pours a beautiful ruby red to brown with a touch of head that laces thinly around the glass. Nose & taste are of caramel, toffee, sweet fruits like plum & raisin. A bit of tartness almost of cherries without the cherry flavor. Solid brew, thanks for the toss in Watson1977! blipp (9590) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 14, 2012
Draft. Pours golden orange with an off white head. Sweet fruity aroma, almost juicy, with light toasted malts. The flavor has some peach-like fruity sweetness, toasted malts, and honey. Not bad. alobar (3879) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2012

Great dark brown appearance. Smells and tastes of honey. Strange, papery aftertaste. arkurzynski (2456) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Pour thanks to motortoddhead. Orange-amber in color. Nose is very caramel with a bit of fruitiness. Flavor well-refined toasted malt, dried apricot, caramel sweetness, and a bite of hop bitterness at the end. Residual sticky malts and hop bitterness to the finish. Alcohol moderately well hidden with a little trailing heat. chicowv (478) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2011
