12oz bottle. Dark brown color, no head. Sweet malty smell. Taste is a little sweet, very nice though. AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - NOV 28, 2007
12 oz. bottle in the cellar since 1999.
Pours a burnt orange color with a slight tan head. Has a sweet cinnamin roll smell. Full bodied with a super smooth mouthfeel. Taste is sweet raisons, caramel, and grapes; not unlike a port wine. No hint of oxidation or off flavors. Finishes with a sweet alcohol taste on the breath.
Average as a fresh beer in 1999, it has aged surprisingly well over the last five years into an excellent brew.oct 2004

This bad boy has been in the bottle for seven years, and it seems that the style has changed a bit in the interim. Pours a clear bright amber with a thin tan head. Medium body (surprisingly light for the style) and light carbonation. Taste and aroma of caramel, figs leather and a bunch of raisins. Starts sweet and finishes sour. Whatever hops seem to have faded away long ago. hopdog (12510) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2005
Bottle # 11290. I picked this one up from an on-line auction (gotta it pretty cheap). Poured a cloudy dark brown color with small sized off white head. Aromas of molasses, leather, light citrus and caramel. Tastes of molasses, citrus, caramel, and light alcohol. I was surprised by how much I liked this one (didn’t have high hopes for a Pyramid beer). You could tell this one mellowed a little over the years, but it is by far the best Pyramid beer I’ve had. egajdzis (6574) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2005 Poured a hazy mahogany color with no real head or lacing. Aroma of chocolate, wood, caramel, light citrus, soy, and a touch of dried fruits. Taste of lots of citrus, caramel, molassas, light hops, and a bit of alcohol as well. Very smooth and mellow after 5 years, probably the best Pyramid makes (made)! Thanks hopdog for sharing!

Bottle pours a dark dark amber, almost light brown, minor off-white head, with spotty lacing.   This one seems to have held up fairly well.   Citrus nose, sweet, light malts and light alcohol.   Much the same on the tongue.   Clean tasting, but fairly light.   Finishes sweet, with a fairly strong orange peel.   Surprisingly good after 5 years.   Thanks goes out to mattbob for sharing this gem.   Probably one of the better Pyramid brews I have had.   Why dont they brew more of this?!?!?

A well crafted and well balanced barley wine. A big fruity nose that warms you inside. Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 12, 2003
This beer didn't impress me all that much. The medium thick head sits atop a slighlty cloudy amber brown body and a good amount of lacing is left on the glass. Teh aroma is sweet, malty and full of caramel/toffee notes with a slightly old mustiness. The flavor is sweet yet sour with a wierd bitterness. Medium to full bodied and warming.

I liked this beer. It's a bit malty, with some smokey notes with a bitterness at the end. Thx to herbjones for this one herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - NOV 10, 2003
I think I kept this one a little to long. Weird sour thing going on. The nose was very nice with a huge malty profile. Flavor was good with burnt caramel and brown sugar but the finish had that sourness that just detracted from it.
