COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imagine if Red Trolley T-boned a semi full of hops. Brewed with an overload of hops and five types of caramel malt, this full-bodied strong ale has plum, raisin, and caramel flavors that are balanced by an aggressive hop bitterness and warming finish. ABV: 8% 30 SRM 70 IBU 22 Plato

Pours a nice reddish brown with an off white head. Aroma of sweet malt. Caramel, and a bit of a nutty flavor. I think this would age pretty well, it did seem a little boozy but I think that will mellow with age.

Blueshawk (451) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2016
- orange-rote Farbe mit guter Schaumbildung - schne Aromen nach Sherry, Malz, getrockneten Frchten und Honig - perfekte Carbonisierung - geschmacklich erinnert das Ganze vom ersten Schluck eindeutig mehr an ein Barley Wine - die beschriebenen Aromen verbinden sich mit der dezenten Hopfen- bitternis zu einem herrlichen Geschmackerlebnis - der erhhte Alkoholgehalt ist nie riech- oder schmeckbar - der Abgang hinterlsst mit der schlussendlich dominierenden malzigen Honigse ein angenehmes Mundgefhl Fazit: Kein Imperial Pale Ale, aber ein klasse Barley Wine

I wouldnt say the hops are aggressive at all, but a nice suped up version of red trolley. Big in body without being hot.

rosenbergh (10905) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2015
22 oz bottle. Bottled on 11/19/14. Thanks to Timo A! Clear red amber color with a small tan head. Berries, sweet dark fruits and mild hops in the aroma. The flavor is sweet hops, dark fruits, strawberry, grainy malt and mild bitterness. Quite balanced but not my favorite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

olio (9544) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2015
65 cl bottle (8.5% abv) @ Timo A. BBE 19.11.2015.
Pours clear amber color with a small head. Very nutty and bready aroma, sweet caramel malts and resinous hops, some pine also. Sweet caramel malt flavor, nuts, subtle coffee notes, toffee and resin. Sweetish, full-bodied, tasty. A bit Bock-like. Definitely better than the Red Trolley Ale, more balanced.

Idiosynkrasie (6717) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 22, 2015
650ml bottle. Clear copper colour with average, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Caramel malty aroma with a touch of almond and powdered sugar, some mandarine zest, a touch of plum. Taste is caramel malty, notes of almond, diluted plum. Simple and a bit monotonous - diluted Barley Wine.

beer-yum (1424) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 3, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2016 Restrained aroma in a copper pour. Full bodied flavour tends to the sweet/malt but quick clean finish leaves one wanting another (and theres nothing wrong with that).
