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°

Reimer96 (1544) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2014 2011 edition. Pours a clear reddish copper with a small head and some lace. Aroma is caramel, Vanilla, cinnamon and a faint bit of wood. Taste is sweet caramel with a hint of cinnamon and vanilla with a smooth bitterness on the end. Excellent barley wine. This beer ages so well and just keeps getting better... Looses some hop bitterness but still so complex and smooth.

Scopey (9384) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2012
2011 bottle at 10.3%, from Kensington Wine Market. It pours deep mahogany brown, with a thin yellow-white head. The nose is toffee, wood, varnish, raisin, caramel, spice, cinnamon bun and umami notes. The taste is wood, varnish, leather, spice, toffee, cinnamon bun, over-ripe fruit and booze, with a dry finish. Medium-full body and fine, prickly carbonation. Well balanced. A solid barley wine.

JulienHuxley (4319) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 12, 2012
Bottle. Clear bright mahogany pour with little head. Aroma of rich toffee, barley sugar and plums - very traditional barleywine aroma. Taste is rich, very sweet with some alcohol notes. Pretty intense beer, palate is very full bodied with moderate carbonation. Pretty archetypical example of the style.

slimspady (217) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 10, 2012
Poured into snifter. Deep, clear, red, with almost no head. Plums, fruit and alcohol. Some of the malt comes through. Nicely complex, very smooth. A little boozy in the finish, but that’s a barleywine. This lived up to the hype. Good beer. 080712

hopscotch (10142) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Bottle… Clear, deep, dark, burnt orange ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. Great retention. The nose suggests vanilla, caramel and cotton candy with a splash of port. Full-bodied with a fatty mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Sweet toffee, cotton candy and a medicinal note up front; loads of bitterness on the backside. Finishes medicinal and mostly sweet. Kudos to jyoungsbcp for sharing his bottle of this!

Atheist_Peace (981) - 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.
