Pours a small, off-white head that recedes somewhat quickly. Color is orange-amber and no lace. Smell of blonde malt, light brown sugar, light vanilla and a some dried fruits. Full body with ample carbonation and a slick finish. Tastes like yellow raisins, blonde tobacco leaves, plum skin, kilned malt, mellow brown sugar and faint leafy hop. Not bad. Surprised it’s so blonde and that there’s some hop left being over three years old.

BB log, Draft, hazy reddish orange with a smaller sized top and not much lace. Notes of maple syrup, dark fruit, candy sugar, booze, and wood. Really strong tasting and warming in the gut. Body was too thin for its own good. Not a fan. CloakedDagger (2958) - - OCT 7, 2016
Bottle 75 cl. Pours a hazy, pale amber with a small, off-white head. Surprisingly little aroma, I just smell sugar and booze. Rich, sweet body, some subtle fruit and even more subtle caramel, there’s not exactly a ton of flavours here. Ends with some balancing hops and quite some booze. It’s a Barley Wine lacking a lot in sophistication, but if you just wanna get wasted in a very short time you’ll fid this more than adequate. 071016 Tmoney99 (15116) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2016
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Pours a clear dark orange golden color with a small off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sweet malts, nuts. Average body. Medium sweet flavor and a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. alexsdad06 (11223) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2016
750 ml bottle shared with Tmoney99 and a small group at Dutch’s. Pours a clear dark orange golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, slightly nutty, caramel, Maris Otter, I tend to like sweet more than most with barley wines, but this may have been a bit much, some sweet candied fruit, honey, all malts, ok.

Red berry aromas, red apple, biscuit, earthy hops. Clear orange with a mostly lasting off-white head. A little sweet, bready, somewhat fruity. Full bodied. Beerdedone (3480) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2016
Bottle. Pours a cloudy dirty brown with a foamy beige head. Aroma of caramel and light fruit. Flavor was slightly sweet with caramel, bread, raisins, light toffee and had some fruitiness. cheap (6203) - CHINA - MAR 25, 2016
Tap, bocktown. Clear pale with hints of vinegar on the nose. Big strong volatile impressions on the uptake. Rude, nasty and uncivilized. Ubiquitous uncivilized and just like so many other big domestic beers. Don’t know if aging would round out this BW er not. Warming upper digestive track finish. Yes, terribly on style for a domestic BW. raymow (1865) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2016
on tap at the brewery - nice golden color. Not much aroma. Decent flavor - better than I thought it would be. SteveOrz85 (256) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2016
750 ml bottle served in snifter, One finger white head which takes a few minutes ti dissipate. Beer is a clear golden color. Aroma at first resembles honey, later aroma becomes more typical of a barlywine and retains a slightly sweet character. Taste is faintly sweet and lightly bitter. Some hops.A slight bite and a little alcohol warming is present. Strong yet fairly lightly bodied beer. Light carbonation. Over all not a bad barleywine but far from the best. I wonder what a oak aged version of this would taste like.
