a beautiful clean deep amber in color with a finger of creme colored head which dissipated slowly and left behind a nice creamy looking lacing. smells of very sweet malt, vanilla, oak, barley, dark fruits. an earthy bitterness up front followed immediately by a roasted nutty profile which is just mindblowingly delicious. lots of sweetness from the malted barley, a nice dark cherry fruity profile, all with a tiny alcohol bite. creamy mouthfeel, medium to full body with a low-medium amount of carbonation.
this is just a fantastic barleywine. got it in a surprise trade with a punk rocker from nevada.. he got it because it's put him on his ass a few times.. and i gotta say, this is one sneaky beer! thanks again frank!

22oz brown bomber with a bottled on date.
LOOK: Massive sticky head, dark amber.
SMELL: Spicy, figgy, alcoholic, sweet, caramel, toasted malt, dried grass, floral.
TASTE: Creamy, potent, sweet, hoppy, caramel, resin, citric rind, rustic grain, ripe figs, yeast, warming alcohol.
A solid barleywine from first sniff to the last sip. Balanced though the hoppiness resonates for a good while. For its size the alcohol is still pretty manageable. This one is worth the hunt.

A: Golden orange tending towards brown with two finger off white head that lasted a good while with moderate lacing.
S: Sweet caramel mixed with floral hops.
T: Plenty of hop bitterness up front, and sweet caramel and butterscotch malts in the back.
M: Medium body with a nice sweet finish.
O: Good barley wine. I liked it enough to pick up a bottle at Whole Foods to bring home.

Super hoppy and spicy nose with a nice, white head. The taste is conflicting...lots of sweet malt (as expected in a BW) and an overpowering amount of bitterness that hangs around long after your previous sip. Maybe this should be called an imperial brown IPA?

White wax topped 22oz bottle from VegasHopHead (thanks Anthony!). Bottled 4/2/13. Served in a Clown Shoes snifter.
Pours an opaque orange hued russet with almost two full fingers of fluffy off-white head. Nice retention as a quarter finger cap lingers, leaving large sheets of lace.
Smells of nondescript sweet fruit, old orange peel, slight pine and caramel.
An interesting blend of flavors. Caramel, citrus rind, toffee, pine, pears, plums, bready malt, woody and earthy notes, raisins and a blanket of booze that creeps in and amongst the other flavors.
An almost chewy, medium-heavy feel with moderate carbonation. Long, bitter sweet finish with caramel, pine, citrus and dark fruit.
While there may be nothing to really elevate this above the herd, Old Jackalope isn't bad at all. I think I'm drinking this during an in-between phase where there are still hop notes clinging on that have not faded to let all the malts truly work their magic. Not hunt-worthy for my tastes but a solid brew.
