Tap at Beer Revolution. Deep amber-red pour with a thin white lace. The nose is really lovely. Sweet slightly fruity malt base - not cloying, but definitely on the rich side. Nice bright fruity hoppiness that cuts the malt without being too aggressive. A little bit chewy and malty, but again, it’s well-balanced. Some chewiness. It’s a damn solid barleywine.

Draft at Beer Revolutiin - Muddy dark amber. Slight head. Sweet makty aroma. Thinner body than expected. Flavors of peaches and apricot followed almost immediately by bitternrss from the hops. Only slight warming in throat. Due to bitternrss is definitely a sipping beer. joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 31, 2011
On draft at beer revolution. It pours dark amber with a creamy off white head. The aroma is amazing with lots of dark fruit and hard candy. Caramel, cherry, plums, raisins, toffee. Very potent. The flavor is rich, smooth, and bright with fruit flavors , caramel and toffee. Tastes a bit oxidized with some nuts and sherry, but it adds another great dimension to this beer. Alcohol is pretty potent with a big plummy caramel finish. bb (9657) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 1, 2011

On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours foggy amber with a fruity aroma. There is a typical bareywine flavor - very fruity with a bitter finish. However, this one is quite tasty without being cloyingly sweet.

Draft. A pale amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of hops, grass, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of hops lending it notes of spices and grass as well as lighter notes of lemon peal, combined with medium notes of malt, leading to a dry and very bitter finish.

On tap at PP Carlsbad (6/12/09): Pours a transparent bright copper orange with a well-lacing off-white head. Aroma of light caramel maltiness and some light fruity esters. Starts semi-sweet and toasty malty with a touch of caramel toffee before a drier bittersweet finish. A decent hoppy barleywine. wetherel (1888) - Cupertino, California, USA - SEP 2, 2009
