Olde Deuteronomy is a beer that is high in alcohol, full-bodied, and has a "chewy" maltiness. Because it improves with age, it is called a barley wine. Olde Deuteronomy is truly a beer to be shared with friends and should be sipped out of a brandy snifter. Each vintage will age and improve for several more years.
ABV varies from 10.2% to 11.5%. 26.4°

UXO (1406) - CANADA - MAR 2, 2015
Pours medium amber with a thin tan head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, spotty lacing. (3/5) Nose is brown sugar, dark boozy fruit, caramel and toffee, some bitter chocolate, earthy vinous notes. (6/10) Taste is moderate to strong sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Medium body tending to the watery, moderate carbonation, off-dry mildly bitter finish. (4/5) Meh. I dunno, barleywines just continue not to do it for me. I can’t quite put my finger on what it is about this one, but there’s something in the flavour that puts me off. (12/20)

Bottle @ Presidential Suite. Thanks to the Canadians. Copper colored beer with a small white head. Nice malty aroma of caramel, toast, and toffee. Light booze, plenty of brown sugar, and some vanilla. A lot of dark fruit, too. Good sweetness on the palate without it being overwhelming. Good mix of chocolate, dark fruit, and sweet sugar/malt. Nice toffee, caramel, and brown sugar. Mild earthy hops.

Bottle thanks to someone! Pours a clear light amber with a tan head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grain with touches of caramel and toffee. Flavor is full of sweet grains and caramel with a touch of caramel.

Taster at RBSG bottle share. Moderately hazy dark red color. Thin ring of off-white head. Couple bits of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Light slick finish. Big tropical fruity red jolly rancher aroma. Moderate sweet taste. Alright barleywine. Works, but not much special about it. Hides ABV reasonably well. Light earthy spicy hop.

Pours cloudy Amber. 2011 brew. Unique nose, dried apricot, candied apple. This is an incredible beer, high bitter but the malt balances it out.
