DRaft. Amber/dark pour. This is definitely an american barleywine, super hoppy, feels like a double ipa with jsut loads of malt character, the two balance. tekstr1der (481) - New Hampshire, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Possibly too fresh? This had a harshness I did not expect. Alcohol was forefront, more so than other barley wines I’ve enjoyed. Poured brown, with little head. Aroma’s of malt and alcohol. Flavor was slightly astringent, with more bitter than malt, and more alcohol burn. Finish could be smoother, again perhaps needing aging. nealblind (1848) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - JUN 11, 2015

Bottle. Murky orange-amber pour with a small rocky white head. Malt, dark fruit, toffee, and some nice hop assertiveness to offset the sweetness. Creamy but not heavy on the tongue. Good stuff. degbert (1772) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle. Pours a deep red-brown with a high, very solid, lacy light brown head. Nose is toffee, boozy, herbal, walnuts, and fruitcake. Drier than I expected on the tongue, with a hefty dose of black tea and spice; comes off almost chai-like, with oak and herbal elements. Finish is long and a little hot. Quite good. thomat (3828) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2015
