Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 13, 2012
Bottle at home, from my MTH glass Pours murky orange, thin tan head, ropey lacing. Nose is grassy/hoppy, with tight grapefruit, buckwheat, tart yeast, very interesting nose. A real nice change from "just another barleywine".. Flavours of spicy, lemon-driven hops, white pepper, rather grainy, and a touch tart and astringent. fascinating, not great, but fascinating...

ContemplateBeer (2079) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Aroma of heavy spruce, caramel, brown sugar and nuts. Appearance is caramel/copper with patchy tan head. Flavor matches the nose; heavy spruce over uninteresting malts. Palate is creamy. Alright.

Dogbrick (12633) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 11, 2012
This beer is a clear copper-brown color with a medium light beige head that recedes slowly. Rings of lacing. Aroma of hops, grainy malt and fruit. Full-bodied with a caramel malt character and notes of resiny hops and grapefruit. The finish is hoppy with notes of yeast and dried fruits left behind. Pretty good all around.

Boutip (6214) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 11, 2012
Bottle: Poured a deep dirty medium brown color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma of deep caramelized grain notes with some dry and somewhat grassy hops is quite unique. Taste is dominated by deep caramelized buckwheat malt with strong grainy notes which are somewhat unique offset by some dry and lightly grassy hops notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Interesting too try a beer with so much buckwheat malt and a strange but enjoyable mix with hops.

trapez (1563) - Hilleroed, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2012
Bottle. Aroma of hops, roasted malt, grapefruit and grapes. Clear red amber colour with huge beige head. Very hoppy flavour with plenty of grapefruit but also some sweetness and a bit oily texture. Liquorice in the aftertaste.

Lukaduke (3168) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAY 8, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2013 Pours a rich dark copper color with a big rocky head that laces out tremendously. Aroma has a lot of fresh piney hops, sweet malts, with a touch of herbal grapefruit and caramel. Rich full body beer with a hell of alot going on... lots of hop flavors right from the start; pine, citrus & grapefruit lead into the sweeter malt flavors but you never lose the big hop bitterness. Great carbonation keep this from getting too sticky, though it does have a full mouthfeel. The finish as goo as the start... lingering piney bitterness crossed with the roasted malty flavors and hints of tea and graham crackers.

Guyute_Pig (103) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark copper color with a beige head. Aroma is big hops with fruity notes, toffee and caramel malt. The flavor is quite hoppy with citrus, earthy notes, caramel and toffee sweet malt. The body is medium to full, with a dry mouth feel. Super hoppy, bitter barley wine that is one of the best Ive had. Abv is hidden well. Had this laying down and decided to crack it, wish I had bought more. Id drink em now to enjoy the hop forward nature of the beer. Hooah!

BOLTZ7555 (3022) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Was excited to see this on the shelves in AZ! Dark rusty tangerine pour with a milky eggshell head that left a spot or two. Toffee, brown sugar, dark fruit and candied citrus in this one. Can detect the alcohol but it isnt distracting. Not bad and glad I had a chance to try it!

Murky brown; creamy beige head. Malty sprucy aroma. Very hoppy flavor, harshly bitter. Not really how I like my barley wines, tbh.

Una de mis cervezas preferidas de las que hemos probado ultimamente, sencillamente excepcional. Roja, amarga muy equilibrada
