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. Cakes (498) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2012

Pours a copper amber with beige head decent lace. Aroma sugar, pine ,sweet, caramel, citrus, slight booze.Taste caramel, butterscotch, pine, citrus, brown sugar, resiny hops, with a great malt flavor taste and good bitter back ground. 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!

22 oz bottle served in a tulip. Pour was maple syrup with two inches of thick beige head. Nose is hops, loads of malt, grapefruit, oak, and light caramel. Taste is mimics the nose very, very closely on this one. I enjoyed this brew quite a lot actually, and I am not big on most of the barley wines I have tried. Though my list is not that long for the style, this ranks up close to the top. fro2218 (471) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 23, 2007
Deep brown in color. Sweet caramel aroma. Fairly thick and smooth texture. Tastes of dark caramel and is nicely balanced by the hop bitterness. nyindiansfan (465) - rochester, New York, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Bottle. Pours a brown lot of head. Smells tastes of pine citrus maple sugar. Sweet with a bite of hops. I’m tried of hoppy barley wines I think. Bring on the booze. Not bad for the type of barley wine that it is. msojka (457) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 18, 2011
Pour is a cherry mahogany color with a small tan head, less than a finger. Nose is of dark dark fruits and burnt brown sugar. Taste is rather malty, nothing exceptional, however very indicative of the style. Adam77 (457) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - APR 3, 2009
Poured amber with a off white head. Aroma of fruit, caramel, and pine. Thick with lots going on. Fruit and spice mix with caramel and citrus in the finish. Delightful.
