Pours a cloudy dark brown amber color with a tan head. Aroma is caramel malt, brown sugar, dried plums, and herbal hops. Flavor is thick sweet caramel malt, dark brown sugar, molasses, dark dried fruit flavors and a pine hoppy finish. Thick syrupy mouth feel.

Muddy reddish brown with a one-finger beige head and a thin veil of lace. Aromas is all sweet and fruity caramel with ample dried fruits and resinous hops. Big caramel and dark fruit sweetness up front with grassy and pine hop bitterness adding lots of life. Medium body, minimal carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a hoppy but boozy finish.

Bottle. Pours clear deep amber with a beige head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, dried fruits, citrus and hint of alcohol. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long caramel and bitter finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. The alcohol is only slightly noticeable. Maybe I’ll pickup another to cellar. Jay_Dubbz (103) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Poured from 12oz bottle. Really nice take on the barley wine style. Smooth opening with a light hop finish. Hides the double digit abv very well.

Bottle. Pours a dark ruby red with a decent-sized, dark beige head. Aroma is lightly tropical hoppiness on the pour. Resin, caramel, pith, pine later on, from the glass. Taste is a lot of resin and caramel, pine too. Some orange, dried fruit on the finish. Full with fairly high carbonation.

Bottle sample at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks zvsn. Clear deep amber-brown with a nice stable beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, biscuits and some stale hops. Sweet flavor, malty, with caramel, cookies, stale hops and a bitter finish. Rounded mouthfeel. Decent. Aurelius (5382) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Dark, ruddy walnut brown. Tight tan head. Bright, hoppy 2xAIPA aroma. Very nice. West coast hops, lots of darkish malting, sturdy bittering but I wouldn’t call it aggressive. A bit on the acidic side, but great balance otherwise. Maybe a little fruitiness. Tell ya what... sight unseen, I’d bet on a Uinta brew anytime based on what I have had to this point.

2 year old bottle. Aroma of caramel and tobacco. Taste is medium hoppy, with notes of said caramel and tobacco, but also some tofee, bread and pine. Really, really good and balanced after 2 years. dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 11, 2014
Bottle @tasting. Aroma is huge fresh hops, caramel, liquorice, fruits, raisin/plums, etc etc. Promising. Flavour is liquid bitter and hoppy for a barleywine, with big caramel, liquorice and fruits. Very nice. mstrcrwly (1000) - New York, USA - DEC 7, 2014
