Bottle from Manchester W&L. Poured into a tulip glass. A deep ruby black color with frothy medium tan head. Aroma of alcohol and roasty malts. I let this one warm a long time. Flavor is smooth and silky. Lots of roasty chocolate and coffee notes. Medium bitterness. Some alcohol burn on the backside. Not bad at all.

Boozy thin malt bomb. Toffee, dark fruits and caramel sweetness. Taste is moderately sweet with some bitterness and a thin seltzery palate. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - DEC 4, 2014
bah, barleywine. It was ok, hoppy still, sweet and boozy. I do not like these, i did dump it out so i can’t go higher than a 3.4 hopscotch (11048) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle… Clear golden pour with dirty orange highlights and a small, fat-bubbled, white head. Decent retention. The aroma is a marriage of caramel and earthy hops. Full-bodied and fatty with mild carbonation. The flavor emulates the nose while presenting a nice balance between bitter and sweet. Lengthy, moderately sweet finish. Bottle courtesy of ctipping!

Bottle. The pour is a ruby red/copper color. The aroma is typical barleywine. The taste is just an average barleywine. Not impressed.

Pour is murky brown with red hues and tan head with large bubbles. Nose has rich dark malt up front with a light grain immediately behind. A bit of root beer and a touch seltzery in back. Taste has a lot of the rich malt up front, caramel and chocolate, a bit sugary and burnt sugar, a note of root beer behind, not as thin as I thought through the finish. Well carbonated and full body, a bit grainy on the palate.
