01 Bottle with Evan, pours murky caramel color with no head or lacing, pretty carbonated for a beer that old. Aromas of fig, plum, dates, caramel, toast. Taste is plums, toffee, cherry, bread, molasses. Lightly tart, very smooth for 11 percent. Bitterness came through as it warmed. Sticky palate medium bodied barley.

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 (924) - 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!

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 (3993) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2012
