Had this barleywine as a sampling at our store. Orange-gold color with very little head. Moderate cloudiness.
Smells of dark honey with a slight creaminess, and a background of European hops.
Tastes of dark honey and cream, soft hops and a slight booziness in the finish.
Overall this gave a great barleywine experience with a nice balance.

Served from a 375 ml, wax-finished bottle.
A - Medium copper color with some orange and red. Thick, off-white head that lasts. Slightly hazy.
S - Clean, fresh aroma of bready malt. Some bourbon-like notes, honey. Light oak. Hops are earthy and are very much in the background.
T - Lightly toasted bread, sweet and spicy gingerbread note. Light bourbon, honey. Hops bitterness, but flavors are not distinctive. Sweet alcohol.
M - Medium to heavy body. Moderate, silky carbonation. Strong alcohol presence.
O - This is a deep, rich barley wine that favors malt over hops. It appears to be aged in whiskey barrels, but the character it gained is restrained and subtle compared to many barrel-aged beers. This one is still drinkable without being cloying, and it is certainly delicious.

Nice one from the dudes at ranger creek.
Presents a hazy gold with light tan head.
Aroma of honey and orange.
Lightly Sweet. Butterscotch. Not much hops. There is an off-putting after taste that develops when it warms.
Thin mouth feel. Didn't detract from the overall. Good quaff.

This was an English-style barleywine, according to the brewery. I didn’t find it true to what I know as the style but I found it terribly enjoyable all the same.
It pours a light orange amber with light foam. I get an aroma that has hints of orange and toffee on it. There’s a rounded characteristic to the flavor, with a light bitterness and a subdued sweetness. Some orange candy and a touch of toffee-caramel come out. I know this has had some time to mellow out.
