From notes. Enjoyed at the 4th Annual Barleywine Tasting at Nicole’s house on January 28. 22 oz bottle. The pour is a clear, light amber with a thin cap of light tan head and a spot or two of lace as it falls. The aroma is messy. There is a heavy alcohol and a light spiciness right up front. A light pumpkin and a hint of vanilla come in late, but it’s mostly spicy booze. The flavor is much better. I love the pumpkin to this. It’s like a pumpkin pie. The spice, vanilla, and alcohol all meld together well with the gourd flavor. The mouth feel is a little light with a softer carbonation and a lingeringly spicy booze finish that has a light vanilla to it. This is a completely different beer from the nose through the taste. I like the finish. ebone1988 (1969) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JAN 28, 2017

hazy golden orange. smells pretty good. smells like sweet portatoe pie and cinnamon. Hmm, this is a really nice beer. sweetness comes on like you have a dessert coming to you then there’s this great yam flavor finished by brown sugar. pretty good DuffMan (10451) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 22, 2016
