Not the best tasting beer. Murky yellow amber color. Very intense alcohol flavor.

Cerveza color cobre intensa notas malta ,caramelos ,dulce de leche en nariz..con aroma a lupulo....atenuada no enpalaga con el dulzor residual..bien balanceada con el amargor ...creo que se podria catalogar como una american barley 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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ home. Poteva andare meglio per il milestone.... giallo ambrata limpida schiuma bianca minimale, grossolana e poco persistente. Aroma intenso fruttato, agrumato, scorza d’arancia e pompelmo.Erbaceo da luppolo aromatico, liquoroso. abboccata all’ingresso, fruttata di agrumi e maltata, poi secca con finale decisamente amaro. calda, poco carbonata, non molto rotonda, corposa. Non del tutto equilibrata, solo in parte armonica

Not as bad as the overall rating would indicate. Slightly hazy copper color, small white head, some lacing. Fruity aroma but pretty bitter flavor. Maybe more of a strong ale or IIPA than a barleywine, but a decent effort, especially for South America.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden brown from the bottle with thin ring of off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of big malt sweetness, hints of dark fruit and burnt caramel. Taste follows, more of the molasses and big booziness. Warming on the way down, thinner mouth, soft carbonation, solid beer.

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.

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

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.
