I had this on-tap at Max's. Served in a sample glass.

Appearance: Pours a red/dark amber color with a layer of off white head that leaves nice lacing on the glass.

Smell: Malt sweetness with some fruit and berry notes along with a boozy bitterness.

Taste: Oh no! This isn't very good at all. Berries with a strong bitterness. Some malt and some booze. This one is a bit of a mess.

Mouthfeel: The body is syrupy with foamy carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: This wasn't a very good barleywine at all. I wouldn't want to have another.

Poured out a ruddy brown color with small off white head approaching beige.

Alcohol the most noticeable aroma, a cigarette ashtray comes across as well.

Ooof, tons of alcohol noticeable on the palate. It really is the dominant aspect of the beer.
A little bit of a thicker, more syrupy mouthfeel, but it still isn't getting me to a point where I like much of this beer. Alcohol dominates any hops or malt flavors. Caramel, raisins, prunes, rubbing alcohol. Pretty bitter, but can't discern if that is from the hops or something else.

Thanks to Reno Dave for bringing this bottle to the Reno bottleshare. No thanks to Dave Hurley of the El Dorado casino (sports bar suit guy) for renigging on their word allowing our bottle share so they could purportedly keep the BMC distributor happy.

This one is a pass for me, glad I got to try it without buying. Would not recommend.

This poured out as a reddish brown color. There wasn't much of a head on top, just some scattered bubbles on top. The smell of the beer has some sweet malts on the nose as well as some hops. The aromas of caramel and dark fruits are in there too. The taste of the beer has a light amount of raisin flavor with a hoppy bitter finish. The mouthfeel of the beer is watery, it's drinkable but not overly complex. Overall this beer wasn't as good as I was hoping it would be. There are better Barley Wines out there.
