Poured from a 12oz. This is not my style of beer. Aroma was a boozy sawdust. Not super pleasant for me. Taste was like a grape must spritzer. This beer did have a very inviting color to it. AdolfoCC (256) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - SEP 12, 2016
Vintage 2016. De color ámbar cobrizo, con una corona de espuma color marfil de buena retencion, con burbujas compactas y abiertas. En el aroma destaca el dulzor, notas a caramelo, toffee, algunos frutos oscuros maduros, madera, en boca es similar. Retrogusto ligeramente dulce con un amargor medio bajo no astringente. crispaire (255) - - DEC 12, 2017
i drank this as the current year (2017) vintage. maybe a couple years in the cellar would've improved it. all i got was cloying, sweet, dark stone fruit, especially of the prune variety. definitely one of my least favorite styles of old ale. Jvittorio4187 (255) - Boardman, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2007
Pours with the color of a burgandy wine with a head that disipates. Molases, pine, cherry, chocolate on the nose. Sweet on the palate with molasases, cherry, pine, orange, and hops. Finish is dry with a bitterness. Good.

Bottle of 2012 vintage.
Dark brown, some head that disappears quickly but remains on the edges. Plums, dates, caramel, vanilla. Light sweetness, medium bitterness, full palate.
Alcohol hits pretty harshly but, well, that’s what Barley Wines are. It’s a strong one, perhaps aging would have balanced it out. Suits well as a night cap instead of the regular whiskey or cognac. lopisar (255) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2015
Malty smoky aroma. Reminds of whiskey. Brown reddish color. Sweet taste and a little boozy. CopterScott (254) - Kansas, USA - JUN 30, 2016
opaque amber color with a thin tan head that goes away. aroma is caramel, dark fruit, and yeast. Flavor is caramel, raisin, leather, and booze. n0mel (251) - FINLAND - JAN 20, 2013
02.01.13. Bottle. Not much foam, beige color though. The beer is a clear, dark copper. Aroma of some yeast, sweet, malty, some berries. Taste consists of a bit of coffee, alcohol, dryish bitter. Creamy mouthfeel. Warming alcohol & bitter finish.Ray1975 (251) - Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 26, 2005
I would have hoped for sweetness in the flavor. Nasty bitterness. Not for me.
2004 vintage... Poured an amber brown color with a mediium lasting head. Spicy aroma with a malty sweet flavor of Bananas, Figs, and Raisins and a heavy flavor of Brandy. Nice thick mouthfeel and well balanced.. Much different from any other Barleywine I have tasted but very good!
