A little on the hoppy side but still a good strong barley wine. Easy to drink. Has that hop after taste similar to a home brew hop.

On tap at City Tap. Pours dark reddish brown with tight, thick, off white head. Aroma is dried cherries and toasted bread. Flavor is sweet to start with bread and dried fruit. Then bitter piney hops take over. Finish is long and bitter. A perfect American barley wine with European nuances. Very good. Pyrmir (6210) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2015

2007 version on keg at Craft heads. Big caramel, cherries tons of milk chocolate sweet malty nose. Mildly sweet so integrated body. Thick body. Excellent and has aged so so well. BlazerT (1253) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - SEP 9, 2015
Bottle. Sensoric. Deep red almost brown with medium, densed, ligh brown head. The head retention is not co bad, as well lacing. Heavy malty aroma - mainly caramel and toffee. In the second row some medium fruity and piney notes, but partly covered by heavy malty profile. The taste is highly bitter, the real hop bomb. The bitterness is long and intense, little balanced by malty sweetness. Full body, sticky and oily texture, average carbonation. Finish is bitter and hoppy. Alcohol warming is quite recognizable.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2015 Hazy red. Big malts, fruity with oxidation notes, big grassy bitterness. A bit brutal, but still good. angelkostvo (1247) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 15, 2015
