COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sweet, heavy, hoppy, high alcohol beer. Named a Barleywine because it's alcohol conent is closer to wine than beer. Estery and fruity characters are counter-balanced by medium to assertive bitterness and extraordinary alcohol content-12%!

Draft at the new Bardo. Murky brown color, thick beige head with amazing retention and solid lacing. Aroma is like snorting lines of butterscotch, very intense. Taste is really sweet and smooth butterscotch and caramel candy. Amazingly drinkable after 14 years.

Thanks to Travlr! At the (new) brewery. Grapes on the nose, but similar in smell to riesling grapes before being turned into wine. Very sweet with tiny bubbles. Great thick beige head. Alcohol is very hidden. There’s a bit if umami but not too much soy sauceness. Really tasty.

Much blacker than the typical barley wine. Nice aroma but not quite as strong as you might expect. The high-alcohol content is masked well by the hops and malt. Finish is strong and bitter.

2000 vintage. Velvety smooth aroma with a light carmel colored appearance. Very welcome mild carbonation adds to this beer’s enjoyment. Very malty with a deeply bitter hop finish.
