COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American Barleywine. First brewed to celebrate the end of strong beer prohibition in Ohio (thanks, ex-Governor Taft!) We use more malt and more hops to create our strongest, most full-bodied flavorful ale. 11% ABV and 107 IBUs! ...low beer warning...

Bottle, courtesy IBrew2or3. Hazy cloudy mango pour, thick head and lacing. Nose has big hops, caramel, some banana and clove. Big caramel flavors, piney hops, some brown sugar. Bitter finish, creamy body, smooth and drinkable.

Murky copperish orange, creamy nitro-head. Solid barley wine, bright flavored. Full bodied, creamy. Some sweetness, but for the most part this is a hop bomb, especially towards the end. A good example although I like my barley wines on the hotter and maltier side.

12oz handbottle from moejuck. Whoa, first rating in nearly 14 months, but I got me a fresh bottle courtesy of my man. Bright orange pour gleams like a jewel beneath the earth. Faint head and carbonation, but the body is fairly lively somehow nonetheless. Sharp, pungent, and fruity aroma, with faint notes of sweet malts. But damn, there are some hops in this bad boy. Intensely bitter but in a way that complements the florat notes. Crazy drinkable even while warming. My second beer from these folks, and another big winner. Thanks, Joe!

ogglethorp (917) - Ohio, USA - OCT 24, 2007
Cask. Pours a medium copper color with a smallish beige colored head. Aroma is sweet caramel malts, brown sugar and a blast of floral hops. Flavor is brown sugar, raisin, pine, caramel, floral. Palate is full bodied, medium carbonation, sticky sweet, well hidden alcohol, finishes sweet and floral like. A really nice, very drinkable BW. One of my favorites from Barleys so far.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - AUG 29, 2007
Growler of Divine thanks to KP. Poured a very deep hazy reddish-brown with an off-white head. Sweet fruity malt aroma with dark fruits and some citrusy hop. The malty flavor was sweet and fruity with hops cutting through to make it soooooo drinkable. The was medium to full bodied. I don’t know the ABV but the alcohol is hidden. It was so tasty I almost drank the whole growler myself.

nolankowal (923) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Draft at Alehouse#1. Orange red pour with an off white head. Aroma of rasins, dark fruits, booze, toffee, and caramel malt. Flavor of toffee, rasin, light earthy bitter hops. SMooth creamy mouthfeel though with a lively carbonation with a sweet and sticky finish. Pretty good stuff.

Wonderfully hoppy barleywine. Orange pour with minimal head. Great hop aroma and sweet malt scents in the background. Taste is very hoppy, sweet, and balanced with medium sweet malts in the back. Love the hops in this one!
