Draft courtesy of argo0, thank you sir! Hazy amber brown color, beige edge head. Aroma of oddly spiced caramel. Taste is odd spice too, a bit of vanilla. Hmmmm. mrhoppy (1288) - Santa Clara, California, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Aromas are sweet and spicy like womens perfume. Inticing. Dates and figs oh so good. The alcohol is in the flavor but strikes a good balance. Crystal Clear burnt orange. BeerandBlues2 (13697) - Escondido, California, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Tap at Max’s Taphouse. Pours clear dark amber with a large, creamy tan head, long retention and excellent lacing. Aroma is dates, plums, and apple esters with earthy and spicy hops, and biscuit malt. Flavor is malt dominant with medium fruity esters, medium hops and bitterness, sweet malt and a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation. sonnycheeba (6259) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 27, 2012

Hazy copper with a lasting off-white head. Malty aroma with toffee, along with citrus and peach and a bit of alcohol. Sweet malty flavour with caramel and toffee, with fruity notes and plenty citrus hops and a bitter finish. Reasonably balanced American BW close to IIPA territory.

Stockholm Beer & Whiskey 2012: En mycket maltig och lite för rå barley wine. Behöver nog lite lagring för att hämta fram den tyngre karaktären, men helt ok. gyllenbock (9711) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2012
Sample at SBWF 2012.
A bit hazy amber with a small head. This was a tasty one. Sweet with malt, dried fruit, toffee and some light hops. Warming alcohol. A nice beer to sip.
