3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at brewpub. Poured a copper color with a medium white head that was lasting and produced good lacing. Good balanced malt and hopd aroma. Medium body. Heavy hoppy flavor with a more balnced sweet finish.
Draft to taster at Tampa Bay brewing at 10.2%. Pours a clear dark golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, herbal notes, some moderate fruit character, alcohol, decent enough. kathouse (1942) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - MAY 15, 2016
Cloudy red with an off white foam. Malt nose and only hints of caramel. Good body and alcohol balance. S_Side_Smitty (802) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - APR 22, 2016
Pours cloudy orange-amber with a substantial off white head. Aroma is sweet & slightly muted grains. Taste is hop forward with some syrupy sweetness up front. The hops take over after that with a not-quite-citrus fruit quality and stark bitterrrrness that goes to a lengthy finish. Definitely an American style barley wine. brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 29, 2015
On tap @ Tampa Bay Brewing. Copper in color with a thin ring of white foam. Sort of on the boozy side and, of course, quite sweet. Plenty of caramel, brown sugar, and toffee. Big time gold raisin fruitiness, too. Maybe a hint of cotton candy? Light floral and woody/herbal hops. Not a winner for me. drfabulous (8825) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Draught at brewery. A bit of a boozy pour. Sweet with caramel and brown sugar. Orange body.

Draft at the original Tampa location. Clear ruby color with tiny head retention. Aroma is candied dark fruits, thicker caramel and a hop I can’t really place my finger on. The body is medium and the best from the sampler so far. The flavor has a huge amount of candied fruits. Sugar coated grapefruit, raisins, plums, with a mild floral type hop. Nicely done.

Sample at the brewpub. Dark amber color with a thin white head that recedes quickly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of malt, caramel and fruity hops. Full-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, ripe fruit and earthy hops. The finish is syrupy with a grainy malt and fruit aftertaste. Decent overall.

Clear copper pour with no head. Aroma is non existent. Taste is dark fruit and Brown sugar. Syrupy. jrodooo5 (1749) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - APR 9, 2014
