Palate: Dry with a great finish.
Overall: This brew was the shizzle for the night and hit the tasting meter very high in our book.
05 vintage on tap at BPP. Lots of brown sugar and maple and still too much alcohol bite after a couple of years. Tasty, but nothing special. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - APR 10, 2006
This was a big mess of a barleywine, fragrant hops, aroma is cheap perfume and warm alcohol notes. Lots of alcholic heat in the flavor, rich and brown sugary sweet, with a hint of fruity citrus rinds. Unbalanced. Oakes (17831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 21, 2006
Cloudy dark amber colour. Slight dark fruit amidst a rich dark malt aroma. Light perfumey hop. Soft, but kind of astringent. Some late heat. Chewy, big, yeasty and lots of citrusy hops. Not entirely focused.
