The romantic term "barley wine" is used for the beers with an alcoholic content similar to the one of the wine. Of color bronze, the Antares Barley Wine is a hard licorosa beer and maltose, with an intense frutado accent, that remembers white grapes to us, originating of leavenings.

Hazy golden bronze. Almost no head. Sweet, musty, spicy, toffee aroma. Sweet toffee flavour and a bit too flat.

Draft pour as part of a flight at their taproom in buenos aires. Darker oranges with a ton of foamy head. Crazy. Fruit loop and tangy taste. Massive flavor. Scorcht. Complex and not like a barleywine I've had before. Good?

Was not a fan of this beer. One of the last ones I had, and both my friends and I agreed it was not that good. We shared a pint of it, as no one really wanted to drink it all. Read other reviews for more deScription. I took pictures and made notes, but in all honesty I don’t think I will encounter this beer again, and if I have the chance, I will pass. That is enough for me to note on it. I am not too familiar with barley wines, but the few I had did not correlate with the taste of this one.

A bit weird, and not great for a barley wine but acceptable when ignoring the style. Bubblegum and bitterness but strangely mixed, or rather not mixed in a successful way. Strange beer but at least it has flavour.

Bov (10914) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 1, 2014
from Mondial de la Bière 2013, Mulhouse - hazy reddish-brown beer with a modest foam left; aroma of tea, peaches and caramel; fairly sweet; full-bodied, quite lot of residual sugars, more notes of tea and apples in the finish

Rodriguez (322) - Quito, ECUADOR - JAN 12, 2014
Copper-amber in color. Good head retention, tons of CO2, not good for this style. Floral aroma, not malty at all, a lot of sugar cane sweetness. It is the same with the flavor, you don’t feel the alcohol because of the sweetness. It has a pungent dry aftertaste that stays forever. This is not a barleywine, it is just an ok imperial pale ale or something, with tons of sugar.

Welley_Alves (228) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - DEC 7, 2013
Bela breja dos hermanos argentinos da Antares. Cor vermelho cobre, com pouca formação de espuma e aroma com notas de cerejas maduras. Na boca, ótimo corpo, com baixa carbonatação e álcool presente, bem inserido. Amargor evidente, bem balanceado pelo malte. Final longo e aquecido. Bela breja! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark ambar with a thin head. Taste fruity at the beggining with a good bitterness. Then, you can feel the alcohol fluents and some sweetness in your mounth. Soft carbonation.

2008 Vintage sampled in 2009. Hoppy tropical fruit aroma. Spicey and figgy palate. Lighter for a BW. Interesting flavors, but not excellent.

Sampled randomly from some dude that brought a bottle to the JRHB meeting. Thanks, random dude! Light amber, very slight head. Hoppy aroma, lightly citric, with a bit of caramel. Flavor matches. On the light end of barleywines, and not very complex, but the flavors that were there were nice enough. I have memories of a very different Simpatico that was a random Mexican lager that came in a solid black bottle. It used to sit proudly next to Corona, Dos Equis, etc. back in the early 90’s. This fortunately is a step up from that one.
