Scary muddy looking brown yellow. Typical sweet cloying aroma of domestic rude barley wine. No co2 to speak of. Sweet and cloying on the palate as well. Does not seem to be as strong as most domestic barley wines nor as rude but make no mistake, this is not a refined barley wine form the old country. Lacks manners as with most american barley wines. Alky content makes me dizzy near the end of my glass. I think, even with years of aging this stuff still will not be civil. Rude style when brewed in america.

Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a caramel-brown color with a small soapy tan head that fades very quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was tart, sour, caramel and malt. The flavor was sour caramel, malt, honey and a touch of pineapple. Long caramel and honey finish. Medium body but undercarbonated. Beerman6686 (6611) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2014

Pours a clear ruby/amber with a thin off white head. Aroma has nice mild Pinot and barrel notes and a touch of fruit. Flavor follows suit and adds nice layers of candied fruit and sweet caramel...touch of vanilla...some mild earthy bitterness balances. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is dry and earthy/oaky/fruity.
