BeerFest2010. Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, wood and some mild yeast, alcohol and gluelike sweetness. Flavour is fruits, alcohol, a bit gluelike sweet. A bit unbalanced, and not all too pleasant.
This big barley wine was on tap at Rattle’n’Hum. ABV was listed as 12%, not 17%. Lightly fruity and honey-sweet aroma. Sheet lacing on the glass. Very smooth for the style, without a lot of the earthy, yeasty funk one sometimes finds in a barley wine. Fairly sweet, but well hopped too. A very good barley wine that was selling for the high price of $7 (US) for a half pint. bb (9241) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 26, 2010

Medium head, dark amber / brown appearance.
Aroma of caramel, citrus, berries, dried fruits. Flavor was very similar, allthough the alcohol was present too.
Throat-warming beer, but the sweetness hides the high ABV very well. Very full body, creamy and oily. 6-3-8-5-16: 3.8
