4.58/5  rDev +8%

Comes out of the tap a luscious, opaque, dark golden amber with a very thick and rather persistent light golden-tan head. Strong, malty aroma has fruity and caramel notes as well as a subtle woody undertone. Flavor has a woody core with fruity and malty notes and hints of caramel and horehound. Alcohol bite is strong but not too fierce. Firm-bodied texture is smooth yet edgy and leaves a strong and fairly persistent tingle. Finish has woody and fruity notes plus a respectable alcohol bite. Let this bombshell explode in your mouth! But please don’t get, ahem, bombed if you have to drive. ;)

Sampled @ Strong Ale Fest San Diego

The beer pours a somewhat hazy deep orange with a modest head that is semi-creamy in texture and the color a light tan with a decent covering of lace. Nose is fusel alcohol, sweet malt, light bit of earthiness also noticed, and start is quite sweet, nicely malted and the top moderate in feel. Finish is stern in its acidity with the hops dynamically spicy; dry but somewhat sweet aftertaste, a decent a decent representative to the style and the 10.2 ABV does warm the tummy.

4.22/5  rDev -0.5%

Deep orange color. Aroma is malty. A full-bodied Barleywine. Malty and hoppy and sweet. Complex mix of flavors. Some alcohol bite at 9.8%. Very smooth. Nicely balanced. Slight smokiness. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
