COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Barley Wine is dark red in color and has an original gravity of 1.120 (24 Plato). The malt complexity of this classic ale style is incredible. The Broad Street Market is located just blocks from the Appalachian Brewing Company. This indoor farmers market was built in 1863 and is one of the oldest continuously operating farmers markets in the United States. The beautiful brick façade and natural wood doors are typical of the structures in Downtown Harrisburg; including our own building.

Ungstrup (32889) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2007
Draft at the Gettysburg location, July 2006. A pitch balack beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet alcoholic combined with notes of roasted malt and prunes. The flavor is malty with notes of bourbon, fruit, and chocolate, leading to a dry chocolaty end. Not your standard barley wine, but nice.

Theydon_Bois (15552) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Keg tap at Appalachian, Collegeville, 29/11/13. Dark mahogony brown with a good sized pale tan head that retains well. Nose us thin, light toffee, touch of booze, earthy, metallic notes. Taste comprises dark toffee, hint of cocoa, sweet fudge, metallic nip, dark fruit. Medium body with bite, fine carbonation, sweet finale. Very mediocre for style, severely lacking in depth, really not much there at all ! The 12% ABV doesn’t show its face much in its defence.

Lubiere (12284) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2006
Tasted at Belgium Comes to Cooperstown, July 16, 2005. Deep red brown ale with a nice creamy moka head. Sweet caramel and raisin in aroma with good floral hops. Sweet caramel with too much intense hops, not much fruity raisin or dates, liek a BW style. Still, a pleasant offering, more like an old ale.

Drake (11469) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 16, 2010
12 ounce bottle, 2009 vintage, from the Gettysburg location. Pours a dark brown color with not much of a head. The aroma is dark and malty,... toffee, dark fruits, soy and chocolate. The taste is toffee, leafy hops with some bitterness, nutty notes, cherries, chocolate and dark fruits. Full bodied, with a very mild lingering bitterness. Pretty nice.

hopdog (10731) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2009
12oz bottle. Poured a medium to deeper mahogany color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, nutty, citrus, and some dark fruits. Tastes of caramel, chocolate, dark fruits, brown sugar, molasses, citrus, chocolate, and some roastiness. Light alcohol in the finish, but not giving way the almost 13%. Well done ABC.

Sammy (10564) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2007
On-tap at Hop Devil Grill. Very dark brown with lace. Good roast aroma. Good hops and citrus lemon worked. Very nice and smooth.Full mouthfeel with bagel dough, tabacco, toffee, molasses, roast malt sweet but not cloying. Complex and unique, a beer geek out-of-mug experience. Wow at 13% alcohol.

GT2 (9411) - Oceanside, California, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Growler courtesy of Brian. Pours a clear, bright ruby. Weak bubbles. Nose is vegetal with thick, sweet cherry twizzlers. Taste is sweet sugary cherry drops. Medicinal, syrupy cough medicine taste. Some gas station candy bar is in there too- artificial cherry chocolate with heavy corn syrup.
