cloudy brown in colour. thin to medium brown thin head. Not much of a head and seems runny off the sides of the glass. Sweet malts in the nose, the taste is spicy but malty and crisp. Feels clean in the mout. Overall, fairly drinkable. Britales (56) - Cape Charles, Virginia, USA - FEB 5, 2004
Strong malt laden aroma and apretty deep red/ brown color. Light tan head, sweet and fruity, ( raisin/prune) out front but a pretty dry finish. A nice example of the style! P-tor44 (886) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JAN 27, 2004

Murky muddy brown color, small foamy white head. Aroma is of caramle, malts, prunes and raisins. Flavor is malty with notes of caramel and toffee, hints of dark fruits. Mouth feel was slightly chalky. Thanks IPFreely for sharing. IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2004
Dark chestnut color, tan head. Sweet malty aroma, pretty earthy. Earthy and malty again, some hoppy bitterness. Medium to full body, some alcohol came through. Pretty nice. Shared with frielock.

This Barley Wine pours a dark reddish-brown color with a thin light brown head. Thin lacing. The aroma is malty and fruity. Lighter body than most Barley Wines, with flavors of roasted malt, caramel, and fruit. The finish is very sweet and borderline cloying. Not the best of the style, but maybe a "Beginner's Barley Wine" due to the lighter body and more sedate flavors. Zach Diesel (906) - Sisters, Oregon, USA - JAN 20, 2004
tobaccolike and slightly smokey aroma, chocolate brown with sand like sediment, burnt maltiness, some chewy meat like flavors and dark chocolate notes Kaya161 (1139) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 20, 2004
Too much chunky brown sediment. Deep auburn/ruby colour. Malty/spicy aroma with similar flavour. Braudog (6674) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JAN 4, 2004
Solid leather-brown color with cratered foamy head. Yeasty and fruity aroma. Acidic mouthfeel, tart and roasty. Alcohol is evident. Good desert beer; why am I drinking this with football? JPDIPSO (6216) - Wauwatosa, USA - DEC 28, 2003
Slightly cloudy brown color with a modestbut stable small bubbled light tan head. Rather light in aromas, with some toffee, caramel and light fruit with a yeasty backdrop. Sweet plum and dates fill the flavors. Some undertones of cask wood and chocolate malts. Nothing overly complex, but quite soothing after an exciting NFL Sunday. Go Pack!
