First had: on tap at HUB, Portland, OR

Light golden-brown liquid, clear, with a small layer of white head. No real surprises in the aroma: toffee malts, dark fruits, perhaps a bit hoppier than you'd normally expect in the style. Taste was boozy up front, very heavy on the licorice, with some sticky toffee, raisins, and a little hop bitterness in the finish. Decent. Medium mouthfeel, a bit syrupy, alcohol warmth, a moderately drinkable overall. The barrel-aged version was tremendous...

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A: Poured a lighter golden color with good carbonation leaving a nice white cap

S: Plenty of hops and booze

T: Immediate booze, some grains, booze again, dry, floral, sweet corn it seemed like, just odd

M: Thin for the style, booze just not appealing at all

D: Average at best. Maybe this needs time to mature but with the thin body I dont see this doing to well past a year

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A deep orange amber color with a nice topper of white suds and plenty of lacing. The aroma is sort of vague citrus and alcohol, not very strong or alluring. The flavor brings sweet licorice citrus pine and woodsy caramel. I detect some candied apple malt and leafy maple. Nice. The body is solidly mid-plus with a smooth feel that offers modest carbonation. An aroma more consistent with the flavor would go a long way here , but still a solid brew.

Bottle poured into Stone Olde Guardian glass. Appearance is somewhat light for style, a bit of haziness, viscous looking as well. Nose is sweet and full of molasses, sap, maple, pine, and brown sugar. Earthy hops come through as well. Smells somewhat hot. Taste is sweet and boozy. Brown sugar and molasses are present along with caramel and piny bitterness on the finish. Flavors are big and bold. Mouthfeel is thick and somewhat high in the way of carbonation. Overall, nice take on a barleywine...very sweet and flavorful and definitely a heavy hitter..

3.4/5  rDev -9.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: (3.5)
- A so very lightly cloudy IPA-like brew. Much lighter in color than I expected, and glows like a west-coast IPA. Orange, a little murky splash of brown, and caramel. Off-white finger of foam quickly settled to a little bubbly ring in the glass, and some thin islands afloat.

Smell: (2.5)
- The scent is masked in its malty madness. Almost a touch vegetative, citrus-like, and grassy herbal. Roasty sweet caramel is very light, and a bit of alcohol shines through when forcing myself to take a deep whiff to get some scent. Touch of meatiness and rubbing alcohol really.

Taste: (3.5)
- Sweet creamy malts, caramel, esters, fruit, grass, and pancake. Certainly a unique flavor. Almost like a marshmallow pop-tart type of sweetness to it. Nice pine and grassy bitter hops. Chocolate even? Sweet cream? Kind of an oddball but not bad. Almost seems to have a slight corn and oatmeal flare to it. Also a touch of some interesting woody and vanilla like flavors.. though not barrel aged.

Mouth Feel: (4.5)
- Nice medium to heavy body... really rich, smooth and creamy. This might just be the best aspect of this beer.. which is kind of too bad really. Well carbonated, and leaves a nice thin layer of beer film behind to lend the mouth some chewiness.

Overall: (3.5)
- This Barleywine is just kind of strange and different overall. Has a great hop bitterness, and just a really odd blend of flavors going on overall. It's a touch lighter in color than most barleywines, and just has some taste that I can't put a flavor too... but it's familiar. It's not bad.. just takes a moment to adjust to. Bet the bourbon barrel version is killer.

Had on-tap at HUB in Portland, OR. Poured a clear golden color with a slight reddish/orange hue. Small off-white head that left sticky/spotty lacing. Had an aroma of malts, caramel and...well...nothing. Taste was really underwhelming. Extremely malty and sweet...not really "bad" but also not a good example of the style, IMO.

Light-medium in body with minimal carbonation. Smooth. Sessionable...which I never thought I'd say for a barleywine.
