3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Notes from my backlog: Opaque pour with a khaki ring of head. Big boozy aroma. Licorice, anise, alcohol- stings the nostrils. Big alcoholic palate. Lots of burn and ethanol in the flavor. Licorice, salty notes. Abrasive with no subtlety.
Aroma is toffee, English toffee and sweet oak barrels.The thick malt profile is multilayered and complex. A very good palette given the ABV. 60minuteman (1765) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2017
Bottle from Canals. Clear ruby red color. Warm boozy feeling in the nose, dark fruits, figs, clove, cardamom and coffee. Earthy taste, more dark fruits, medium bite and wood with a semi-sweet finish. Coffee grounds. jflopsu (1801) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 20, 2016
Pours a ruby red with heavy light tan head. A sweet make, caramel and alcohol aroma. A sweet malt, caramel, and dark alcohol taste. A dry and sweet malt aftertaste. tombutlin (369) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 9, 2016
I’m not a fan of sweet beer, but this was a good one. Quite spicy and actually improved as it warmed onceblind (10570) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 14, 2016
Slightly hazy deep roast Amber, with a delightful looking cap of a foamy light tan head. Rich bready boozy English Barleywine notes with a dash of wood and cherry and dates. Smooth and semisweet fruity flavor that’s got almost like some red grape and dark red berry flavors with a malty boozy depth and that woody tone is back from the nose. Semi fruity and fleshy with an almost boring malt base.

Pours a half finger of head on a hazy light brown body.
The aroma has a little caramel, lots of hay, barnyard and plowed dirt.
The taste is grainy, a little caramel sweetness, more dirt and grains.
The texture is fairly light with nice fizz.
The aroma is great, the flavor fine. Oscbert (1319) - Lincoln, California, USA - AUG 12, 2015
Strong woody spicy sweet caramel cocoa aroma. Reminds me of their prohibition ale.
Pours an amberish brown with small creamy yellowish head
Strong malty sweet flavor of caramel and cocoa well balanced with woody spicy hop. Surprisingly easy to drink.
Medium full bodied, medium CO2, slight alcohol warmth, tongue numbing, lasting bitter finish that beckons for another sip.
Very well balanced American Barleywine. I enjoy the hops that Speakeasy likes to use. I have no problem sipping this all night

Draft at Eulogy. Murky dark brown pour with lots of beige foam on top. Left a sheet of lace. Solid dark caramel flavors. Espresso. Semi-sweet cocoa. Molasses candies. Has an interesting powdery texture. Alcohol feels big but not overly boozy. A big toffee malt bomb. BrewBoxer (2664) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 29, 2015
Bottle. Pours a muddy brown color with a Carmel note that's heavy and boozy. Taste is the same with some more sugar. Not a bad sipper
