12oz bottle. Thanks to MaltOMeal for including this as an extra. Pours a very pretty burnt orange/red color with low carbonation. Some traces of a head start but quickly recede to just a thin layer of bubbles surrounding the glass. The aroma shows candied fruits, traces of hoppiness still linger (or are those just spices?). A lot of fruitiness with some pineapple and other tropical fruit. Smells remarkably similar to a Barley Wine though a little more tame perhaps. Taste is pretty thin and watery. Some traces of maltiness and caramel are present but it tastes like a normal BW watered down. Very quick finish. Interesting but not entirely successful. blutt59 (6564) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2008
bottle, clear copper colored with slight dishwater head, aromas of molasses, dried fruits and spice, taste is sweet caramels, flat TAB cola, some malt, finish is thin and weak kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear copper body with a small thinnish looking fizzy off-white head that faded quickly. The nose is slightly sweet with a light spice and herbal accent. A little husky and grainy smelling. Pretty sweet flavor with a thinnish grainy cereal malt base. Some light spicing late in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a course grainy texture and moderate fizzy carbonation. Not really caring for this one too much, but maybe it is a bit over the hill by the time it got too me. jzzbassman (1631) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 3, 2009
Bottle. Malty aroma, with a bit of spice. Flavor is more alcohol dominant than the ABV would suggest, with a bit of pepper and biscuit malt. pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2009

Poured a hazy copper color with a thin off white head. Sweet and malty aroma with some notes of maple syrup. Light spice. The flavor too was sweet and malty. Very spicey on the flavor. Almost burns. The finish was dry and spicey. chef201atc (261) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - NOV 3, 2006
Clear copper color with moderate tan head. Nose is slightly malty and fruity with hints of plums. Flavor is fruity and spicy, but not much hops. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 25, 2006
(12oz bottle) Hazy copper body topped by medium beige head. Aroma is moderately sweet, orange, allspice, bread. Taste is moderately sweet, candied orange, bread/caramel, spice/allspice, some raisin. Medium body, alcohol warming. Good, but a bit too sweet for my liking.
