BOttle shared by Pinkzambia redish amber nice light brown head. Some papery wet cardbord bitter sparp flavors but not much maltiness. A barleywine but w/o the camely character. fiulijn (21470) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
Bottle from Brews Almighty, Everett Oakes (19045) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
Dark amber color with red hue. They went heavy with the caramel here; strong hops, more resiny than fruity, a bit nutty, roasted nuts, quite hard beer.
Reddish-brown, rich hops, touch of toffee, and a touch of chewy malt and dried fruit. Good brew. mcberko (19227) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
22 oz. bottle, pours a clear dark mahogany with a small white head. Aroma is quite spicy, with toasted malt and toffee. Flavour is very malty but not too sweet, with notes of toasted nuts, dry caramel, and spicy hops. I thought this would be on the sweeter side, but the spicy hops pierce through to make this well-balanced. Enjoyable stuff in smaller amounts.

Dark amber body with a cream caramel head. Hoppy and candied malt bouquet. Candied malts and biter hoppy body with a touch of diacetyl. cobaink2 (818) - seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Beer from beer junction. Nice sized head. Tastes of slight caramel and lots of toasty malt goodness. It’s drinkable but not overly impressed. bhensonb (15861) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours bright ruddy copper with a orangy/beige head. Aroma of a hoppy barleywine. Med body, maybe better. Flavor is malty, even a touch of treacle, and there’s hop burn. Sort of herbal/earthy hop burn. Barleywine? Red IPA? My mouth hungers for more. Really nice! after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - FEB 2, 2014
22, capped. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a dense and creamy dark tan head and plenty of lace. This is a big dark and dirty nose, lots of toast and burnt business, tortured malt, and heavy earthy hops. Creamy thick body with bright forceful carb. Dark toasty caramel with bright tangy fruit and heavy earthy notes from the hops. Heavy, tangy finish. Really interesting. Not an everyday drinker, not an all day drinker, but very well made, and all about a certain vision without a doubt. Not for everyone, but definitely for people who like stuff that isn’t all about the everyday.
