At the Barleywine event. Aroma is booze, hops, caramel, sweet, ok. Appearance is light brown, light tan head, clear. Taste is booze, caramel, hops, toffee, eh. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, bready boozy caramel aftertaste. Overall, eh. hopdog (12953) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2016
12oz bottle. Poured an amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Caramel, dark fruits, and a bit sweet. An enjoyable sipper. jinroh (2122) - ESTONIA - OCT 18, 2015
Pours amber, bit of foam. Aroma is nice, smooth and velvety. Sweet and candy-like a bit. Taste is also sweet, caramel, bitter kicks in there. Quite sweet but not cloying. Drinks easy, even dangerously so for a 14,5 percent beer. Herbal notes linger in the aftertaste.

Bottle. Aroma is great, that barley wine thing, tutti fruttis, honey, sticky, pineapple. Taste is great, so easy drinking. Sweetness, little bit of hoppiness, no hint of the booze, caramel. Really nice.

Medium amber color. Lots of pineapples, cherries, brown sugar, bread in the nose. The mouth is very full body, lots of brandy in the mouth. Boozy and fun

On tap at Kuhnhenn. A dark golden color with a frothy head. A slightly boozy caramel nose. A sticky sweet honey flavor with lots of caramel to back it up. Weirdly thin and light. Very different. Petkus331 (389) - Redford, Michigan, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Handpull at the brewery. Aroma of golden malt wort simmering at about 155ish degrees farenheit and some acidic apple and very mild herbal hop. Clear copper with thin head. Tastes mildly sweet up front for a barleywine, refined cane sugar, some mild raisin, followed by a mellow oaky-hay like bitterness. Fizzy thick palate, but a bit oily. Overall, very mellow barlywine, but very nice. firstsip (733) - Michigan, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Tap at brewery. 2014 brewing. Deep clear blood orange color. Very mild sweet fruit nose. Not syrupy. Very mellow for a barleywine. Not very raisiny at all. Cinnamon, still lightly present hops. koleminer20 (3840) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - OCT 10, 2014
On tap at Kuhnhenn. The pour is a more golden ruby with a nice white head and some great lacing. The aroma is very boozy. There isn't strange sweet fruit to go along with a light malt. There is almost a little pineapple there. It's quite strange for what I was expecting for a barleywine. The flavor is somewhat boozy and bland. It's light. Some malt and a little caramel. The mouth feel is thin and slick with minimal carbonation and a presence that's difficult to classify as the barleywine it's presented as. The aftertaste is lightly malty and there isn't a whole lot going on. Somewhat forgettable.

2012 vintage - Maple pour with off white head. Good lacing for a BW. Nose is caramel and light vanilla. A little bit of oxidation. Taste is similar with some sherry notes. Back end bitterness but otherwise lightly sweet. Good.
