"04 Harvest- Brown body w/little head malty aroma and taste. Alcohol taste on back end. Fairly decent Barley wine. KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 27, 2006
Just a hint of alcohol and fruit. Little or no head. Cloudy amber color. Fruity and bitter taste. Very weak for a barley wine and I don’t think it because of the organic products they used. brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 27, 2006
Aroma was carmelly,chocolate,of medium strength, chill hazed amber orange color, red licoricey sweet malt taste,with a sweet chewy red fruit middle,touch of bitterness at the end. Alcohol makes brief appearance in swallow. Nice enough,but just lacks the bigger body and complexity to be a great bw TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAR 11, 2006
2005 bottle. Pours a hazy brownish amber with a very small off white head. Aroma was sweet and fruity, caramel, gapes and the alchol as it warmed. Flavors of the same. Was picking up some light bitterness from the hops. A solid BW, would like to see how this one played out as it aged. IrishBoy (4199) - Bakersfield, California, USA - FEB 28, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2006 Cloudy, dark amber with a small tan head. Aroma is fruity with citrus and taste is hoppy with a grapefruit tang and a slighty bitter finish.

Bottle, 2000 harvest. Dark amber and cloudy w/ light brown head disapearing to a few bubbles. Sweet malty aroma. Malty taste with tobacco and oak, slightly sweet. Nice smooth finish. High gravity with out being to boozy tasting. Not bad at all, goes right to the head, rather drinkable. *Designer note* I kind of like the packaging for this brew, a nice homey wood block illustration on natural colored label. Not flashy but stood off of the shelf amidst some of the design disasters that exist in craft brew packaging. bb (9268) - Alamo, California, USA - FEB 13, 2006
Draft. Reddish, dark-amber color with a nice off-white head. Sweet malt and orange aroma. Nice sweet malt and big orange and resin flavor. Full bodied. Hoppy barleywine - nothing too overwhelming, but somethign that can easily be sipped. TheBeerNinja (137) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 10, 2006
Pours a deep copper amber with a very quick tan head. Nose is heavy with earthy citrusy hops. There are heavy sweet notes in the nose from the malts. Flavor is actually very subdued. Thick sweet caramel maltiness with a rock solid hop bitterness. Unexpected and nice.
