COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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%

Atheist_Peace (927) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 30, 2012
341ml bottle, 2009 vintage. Deep amber/red pour with off-white head. Malty on the nose with some citrus fruit and bubblegum. Oddly fresh on the palate with lots of candied fruit and a lackluster finish. Thick but not overly sticky. Good stuff.

Originally reviewed Mar. 8, 2007: shazbot! first thing that comes to mind after tasting this. poured with a decent light tan head that vanished pretty quickly. leaves a skiff on the top. colour is a deep amber. smell boasts fruitiness, caramel and hops. once i tasted this, i was shell shocked. hahahaha. no seriously, i wasn't expecting the smoothness that it carries. can't taste the alcohol at all. nice and sweet malts. the hops don't jump out like you think they would after smelling it. great brew for the locals.

Great aroma of fruit and hop. Very appealing rich aroma straight from the pour. Lovely clear mahogany/amber colour with a thin disappointing lace. Thick syrup texture. Fruit hop, malt. Delicious fruit malt, whisky wood, earthy flavour. Very nice beer.
