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%. 26.4°

This gnarly barley wine is super sweet and chewy. Malty and fruity, with well hidden alcohol and good flavor intensity. Notes of spiced apple, raisin and hard candy. This is badass liquid nectar in a brown bottle. Thanks to Mike T for the bottle!

Sampled at Mechazilla’s epic insanity tasting session. 2011 vintage. Rich toffee, raisin and dried fruit, quite estery, can feel the alcohol heat too on the sweetish finish. A tad boozy maybe but still an impressive 5 year aged barley wine.

willisread (2210) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 6, 2016
Bottle shared at Mechazilla event. Thanks Tim! 2011 vintage I believe. Caramel, aged musty notes with some apricot and oak. Soft and full-bodied with brown sugar, and a quality like a heavier campari as it warm, light vanilla. A great sipper.

341ml bottle. [Vintage 2016] Pours a clear red-brown with a thin, tan head that leaves spotty lacing. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, overripe fruit and alcohol. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, overripe fruit, brown sugar and a hint of oak with warming alcohol in the finish. Medium body with a sticky, oily texture and soft carbonation. A pleasant surprise.

355ml bottle, a screw-top bottle of all things which is sumpthin’ I don’t appreciate on a barley wine of all things - like, chug! chug! chug! Is that the barleywine motto? Nah, didn’t think so. Has minimal head and dark ruby clear colour. Candy, rosewater, toffee on the nose. Flavour is thick caramel with candy sugar molasses hints. Alcohol is not present, so a point for that. Very pancake-syrup like, kinda if you mixed Aunt Jemima with a few shots of vodka.... hey, that’s giving me ideas if I’m hard up for booze or barleywine at 3am and the craft beer store is closed. Must investigate....

RhetoricalAns (816) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 25, 2016
Murky deep brown pour, thin dark head with little retention. Aroma of big malt, toffee, brown sugar, dark fruit, and some alcohol. Taste is is sweet heavy malt. Thicker, leaning towards syrupy body. some warming alcohol comes through but not unpleasant.
