Pours a Orange amber. Pretty thick head, later pretty thick lacing on the glass. Aroma faint sweet malt. Taste Pretty good Hoppy, More towards the Bigfoot side of Barleywines. Nice bitter finish. Pretty tasty Pretty full bodied, smooth nice finish. Probably will age well. bit pricey, but they all are getting that way...

For a barley wine beer I was not expecting a smooth tasteful beer I could enjoy to the last drop. This beer has defied my barley wine perspective making it one of my favorite redhook ales of all time

22oz bottle. Pours a deep dark amber. Slight head. Aroma is slightly spicy. Taste is smooth. A slightly caramel and maybe banana taste but definitely some kind of fruit-hop taste in there. Alcohol is well hidden. A lot going on but very smooth. A nice beer.

A pretty good barley wine. Less sweet than I like and slightly hoppier than Id expect. Good, but I wouldnt take this over other barley wines.

Pours a clear amber reddish color with a moderate beige head that leaves a nice sticky lacing. Aroma is of distinct citrus notes, with pine, floral, and caramel underlying it. Taste features hop bitterness up front, with a sweet and prominent caramel to follow, and a long boozy roasted malt finish.

Sampling thanks to RockCrawler. Pours a clear dark honey color with light head. Aroma of sweet caramel and resinous hops. Taste is intense on both fronts. FULL bodied and finishes with an intense sticky resinous hop bite.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2010 (22oz Bottle - 2009 Vintage) Thanks to Mora2000 for sharing this bottle! Pours a amber color with a small off white head. Smell is lots of citrusy hops, with a slight caramel maltiness. Taste is very hoppy, but not very bitter with some light fruits, and caramel malt. Medium mouthfeel, and very drinkable. Overall, its an ok barleywine, but theres a lot better out there.

12 oz. bottle from a trade at Brawley’s Beverage in Charlotte NC, served in a Duvel Glass. Thanks Mike! Usually not big on barley wines, I find this one to be wonderful. Most of the ones I’ve had tend to be too big, and cloyingly sweet. Although similar to a west coast amber ale, this barely wine is tasty. It is very well balanced an hides the 9.8% alcohol well. Finishes dry with a good bit of residual sweetness but not cloying. No hop bite, smooth, and refreshing. Dangerously drinkable in colder weather, especially for a barely wine.

Big beer at 10.1 ABV. Nice malty sweet, citrus hop aroma. Deep caramel and toffee flavours with a smooth bitter finish. Heavy, slick body. Alcohol very well hidden. Damn good stuff.
