Poured amber with a fluffy off white head. Aroma of fruit, candy, and hops. Lots of hops and sweet malt flavors. Some fruit in the finish. Really good. carl4beer (522) - Fairfax Station, Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2010
22oz pours a robust copper brown. aroma is malty with some brown sugar and hint of citrus hops. Has a smooth mouth feel with big candied coated hop goodness. barley wine... i would consider it more of an american strong ale, not much barley wine going on, but what is going on works! very nice big sweet sipper! jblendy (521) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - MAR 28, 2009
Good effort from troegs. Nice citric/herbaceous hops, some caramel sweetness, a bit of berry like fruitiness toward the finish, and a pleasant bite. Cakes (506) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2012

Such a good barley wine. Pours a dark red/brown color with a tan head. Aroma is brown sugar, caramel, honey, and toffee. Taste is a sweet brown sugar, caramel, hints of cocoa, and some bitterness bite in the end but mellow. Mouth feel is a tad light but other than that this is fantastic.

transfering from notes. Bottle from coopers. Poured a brownish red color with a big head. Lots of dark fruit and sweetness on the nose. Taste was very sweet with some hops at then end. mwelsh13 (499) - Maryland, USA - MAR 28, 2009
22oz bottle pours deep garnet in color with a head that quickly fades to a ring. Big citrus hop aroma with some sweetness. Simcoe tasting hop slight bitterness with a slight tartness. Caramel is the largest component of the sweetness. Very goo. Will Sit on the second bottle for a while and see what happens. lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - APR 12, 2009
Pours dark mahogany-brown with tan head. Great citrusy nose balanced with a touch of chocolately malt. Flavor is extremely well balanced, with bright citrus and herbal hops sitting perfectly on a backbone of caramel, chocolate, cola, and biscuity malts. This beer doesnt fit into any one specific genre, and its great to see breweries continually reinventing certain styles. Palate isnt outrageously sticky, which is a definite plus. rugbydude05 (478) - Bridgewater, NJ, New Jersey, USA - JUN 1, 2010
22 oz bottle, pours a hazy deep copper color with moderate coffee colored head, looks very enticing. Aroma is sweet and spicy with malt, some hoppiness, and prominent alcohol. Taste is a good mix of sweet, bitter, and spicy, in that order. Sits full on the palate and almost burns on its way down. Good barley wine, nice drink for a cool night. Not as great in warm weather. chicowv (477) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2010
22 oz bottle: Pours a hazy caramel color with a nice head and decent lacing. Aroma is hoppy with a touch of sweet caramel. Flavor is a hopped barleywine that I could drink again and again. Really good barleywine!
