Bottle: On the label it says best before 11-97, so whatever year that makes it. Aroma of wine, vinegar, chocolate, and a little tartness. Pours a dark reddish-brown with lots of sediment. Small off-white head. Not a lot of flavor up front. Has a vinuous, caramel, chocolate, and light apple finish. Thanks to Styles.

Cask @ Buckeye: Wow, dark color. I thought I had my order screwed up till I took a whiff. Soft, lightly sweet aroma of crystal malt and flowery hops. Flavors basically followed the aroma: Pleasantly malty sweet with a touch of flowery hops balancing everything out. Very mild compared to what I expect when I see a beer advertized as "barleywine". But that being said, it was quite pleasing and very drinkable.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - MAR 14, 2005
Huh, so this is a barleywine. On cask at the Gaslight. Dark brown porterish look, small head, fine bubbles. Smell toffee, molasses, some sort of roastiness and floral hops. Mouthfeel slightly chaky, medium-full. Taste mild coffee, semi-sweet chocolate, and a slightly crisp hoppy finish. Kinda wierd.

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 9, 2005
A very decent english barleywine that pours a deep amber/brown with an of-white head. Aromas of spice, and flavors of old hops, honey and a light bitterness.

This is worth going out into the cold. Winterís are made for such beers. Warming. Sweet, but also roasty and dark. The interest is in that ending swallow.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 2, 2005
Cask @ Moan & Dove, Amherst, MA: Deep ruby brown, chestnut beige head. Fruity grain malt nose. Rather sweet, chewy caramel malts, big toffee, plum, raison, treacle. Finish with a firm hop bitterness. A bit clashy are the malts and hops sometime, but still a very drinkable and enjoyable offering.

Cask @ Akkurat, Stockholm 15 Jan 2005
This is a full bodied x-mas pudding in liquid form. Very filling and full of a diversity of tastes. Something to sip on, on a cold windy winter day. Iím not sure I agree on the barley wine lable though. To weak for that, in my oppinion. It has a long lingering after taste of licorice, black chocolate, prunes and roasted nuts.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 14, 2005
(Cask-conditioned at Akkurat, stockholm, Sweden) Clear, dark ruby brown colour. Thick long lasting tan head. Rish malty aroma of light chocolate, figs, pear, butter with acidic undertones of raspberries and wood. Malty flavour of black chocolate and toffee with delicate vinous undertones of black cherries and raspberries. Long, woody finish with notes of herbal hops and tart raspberries. Quite good stuff!
