On tap at the brewpub in Fall of 2011. Pours with a clear bronze body and an off-white head. Aromas of overripe fruits, plums, figs, esters and caramel. A bit of bready malt. Flavors are estery, dark fruits, plums, malt, caramel, cereal, alcohol and rum. Medium alcohol warming, thick bodied, lighter carbonation. onceblind (9442) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2011
Dark hued clear amber. Mild aroma but contains sweet bready malts and spicy ripe fruit. Taste has a lot of honey from start to finish. Very sweet yet rounded and not palate assaulting like some other barleywines. Ripe fruits abound with the honey and a warm, subtle alcohol burn. Not too complex but perhaps the most approachable barleywine I’ve had yet.

OK, so back in 2004 we went to the Great American Beer Festival. At the time, I wasn’t able to find this beer. I have taken some time off from rating beers but, I thought I would go back at it. I noticed that it wasn’t in my top 10 so with the help of my friend, I’m retro rating it. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2008
