Bottle. Pours reddish chestnut brown with tan head. Nose/taste of citrus, caramel, bready malt, toffee and pine. Semi sweet mouth feel with lots of citrus and caramel malts - like a heavily malty double IPA. Finishes with some pine and resin along with a touch of warming alcohol. Good mouth feel.

mcberko (15000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2014
22 oz. bottle, pours a dark caramel orange amber with a small head. Aroma brings out toasted chestnuts, spicy hops, and a touch of caramel bready malt. Flavour is very similar, with lots of spice, toasted nuts, and dry dark fruits. Too spicy and nutty for a barley wine. Acceptable, but off the mark for me.
