A- Pours a cloudy copper color with very little head.
S- Smell is huge ... lots of dark fruit, prune, raisin, brown sugar.
T- Tastes more like an english barleywine, very strong prune notes up front followed by fig, plum and hints of caramel with little to no hop on the back end.
M- Thick with medium carbonation.
D- This is a very drinkable barleywine. I enjoyed it so much that I got a growler to take home. JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 31, 2012

Light light unclear medium to dark amber color with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white to beige head. Aroma is heavy malty, caramel, nutty, rye, raisin marinade in alcohol, alcohol. Flavor is light heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily - syrupy, carbonation is soft to flat. It feels a bit young - IMO it will be better with the aged. 
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark ruby brown color with a small tan head. Aroma is very fruity with a variety of esters and a little bit of booziness. Flavor is burnt brown sugar, caramel, berries, and alcohol. Medium-full body makes this a luscious slow-sipper. Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2009 Growler, courtesy JMFG. Pours a clear crimson color with a small, fleeting, foamy head of khaki colored foam. A soapy wash of lacing leaves some legging on the glass. The nose is very fruity for a barleywine, notes of dark black cherry and licorice proving quite unique, with a rich caramel undertone adding further sweetness. Hop notes add background earthiness, while hints of toasted bread adds a sharp, edgy finish to the malts. Flavors are similar, toasted caramel and biscuit melding with sweet red licorice candy, fig, and other assorted dark fruit. The finish is slightly earthy and darkly roasted. Big in body, with balanced carbonation, the mouthfeel is syrupy and somewhat hot. It’s a little weird and doesn’t really suit my taste, but I can see how malt fans would dig this one.

Very sweet aroma with a cherry brown pour. Almost no head. Tastes like cherry cough syrup. Very sweet and alcoholic. Nice flavors, a bit abrasive for me, but I’m a perfectionist. Not much subltety here, but thats OK. A pretty interesting beer. wetherel (1880) - Cupertino, California, USA - MAY 9, 2009
2008 22oz bottle from cquiroga tasted at Lost Abbey 3rd anniversary party. Probably an excellent handbottle via the brewer. Very nice. Had some age on it, which I think has led to some oxidation and mellowing of the flavors.. Alcohol well hidden. Not sweet or dry. Dark amber color. Malty. Very nice. goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - APR 26, 2009
Thanks to AgentSteve. Poured a deep red amber color with a small off-white head. Sweet and fruity. Maybe even a little plum. Some alcohol and a little spicy. Fruity start with a sweet malty middle and spicy finish. Pretty warming with a medium body. cgarvieuk (24230) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 12, 2009
Bottle at home ... with Jan and Charlotte ... red copper ... sweet toffee nose ... sweet caramal ... light hop ... little suger ... little banana ... lacking a bit of depth ... think age would have done this well ... none the less quite a plesant drink ... probaly suffering a little as it followed a really great example of a beer in my favourite style jsh12bama (681) - Alabama, USA - MAR 8, 2009
Bottle split with jimbowood. Pours amber with thin off white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and dark fruit. Taste is sweet with sugar, and some spices. Just your average barleywine.
