Draft at the brewpub (Munster, IN). Pours a rosy coppe, well hazed, glowing brighr red with decent frothy offwhite head that laces well, dies to a film. Pretty but a dying head. Aromas are deadened, caramel and toffee pair with deadened floral hops, dry toffee and biscuits, a touch of spiciness. Fuller bodied beer with thicker sweet toffee, caramel, biscuits, a touch of vanilla. Sweeter malts with a light spicy pepper move into it. Soapy qualities, sweeter malts, decent floral and spicy hops with a touch of grass. Thicker bodied, sweet and silky with sweet malts, decent floral and lightly spiced hopping. A faint cocoa, caramel, toffee. Simple yet well balanced with decent hopping, sweet strong malts, sturdy body and balanced with a sweet slant, floral grassy hops. That slight touch of spice really wins me over StoutFest (77) - Stoutville, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2010

This was an OK barleywine. It is slightly sweet & sour. A light lingering bitter after you sip it. It is nicely carbonated. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2011

Pours a dark, hazy orange colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of sweet caramel and nuts. Flavour of floral hops, bready malts, caramel and toasted nuts. Medium bodied with a thick mouthfeel. English malts/hops are not my favourite.
