COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full-bodied barleywine that includes biscuit malt. This is the 2006 Homebrew Competition winner from Joe Eckhart. Enjoy it while it lasts, because we won't be making it again!

Dark copper to chestnut color with a tall, by style, off white head. Lightly fruit aroma with prunes, figs and apricots. Hints of floral and herbal hops spring in. Flavors match up with the aromas, but there is a light nuttiness as well. A true malt barley wine. Not over done or too hopped up. Fairly simple and easy to drink.

7/7/07: On tap @ Ale House #1.
Red to brown body with a flat, tranquil quality. Sweet caramel aroma. Flavor is fruity (apricot and raisin). Finish is also sweet.

Dogbrick (7998) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2007
On draught at Ale House #1: This beer is a lovely dark mahogany color with a thin beige head that does not last very long. Spotty, quick lacing. Rich malt, caramel and fruity aroma. Full body with lots of toasted malt and caramel flavor, along with touches of hops and nuts. The finish is round and smooth with sweet malt and dark fruit at first, followed by moderately bitter hops. Enjoyable overall, as these annual homebrew competition winners tend to be.

On tap @ the Ale House: Pours a deep brown with a medium tan head. Aroma, caramel, molasses, some fruits, and a bit nutty. Flavor, smooth caramel, roasted malts, some toasted flavors, molasses, sweet fruity boozy notes as well.

Ughsmash (7126) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 26, 2007
Bottled. Poured a deeper, garnet-tinted amber. Aroma first found sweet lighter fruits (apricot, passion fruit, and pear come to mind).. dried floral notes accented.. a bit of warm caramel trails.. enjoyed it much! Flavor had a sweet, decidedly English feel to it.. sweet fruity base with toasted caramel and medium floral bitterness.. tasty! Medium-bodied with a higher bitterness to it.. decent flow.

Thanks nolankowal for sharing this growler. The beer pours to a chestnut caramel colored body with a very thin white head. The aroma is sweet barley, strawberry seeds, and strawberry leaf hops. The flavor is sweet strawberry leaf hops and clean pale malts. "Simple", but quite good. The flavor finishes nice. Sweet full palate. Nutty chocolate. Nougat.

On tap at Alehouse #1. Poured a very cloudy light amber color. No head upon arrival to the table. It was served very cold, which I did not care for. So I let it set for a while to warm up. Smelled of sweet caramel. Taste was FABULOUS. Sweet toffee, vanilla and MALTS. I LOVE malts! A very slight hop finish. I thought this was a beautifuly blended barley wine and I can not believe it is a home brew. The alcohol was very well hidden. DELIGHTFUL!

Had this on tap at the alehouse last week. Pretty tastey barleywine. It had a real solid malt background but still had a light citrus to back it all up. This was pretty sweet but it was a solid beer overall.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - JUN 21, 2007
Pours a hazy amber golden color. Small white head. Aroma is kind of noble, kind of spicy, some sweet candy. Sweet, somewhat candy finish. I like the beer, the sweetness makes me thinkg I couldnt drink more than a pint or so.

From the firkin: Opaque brown color with a small beige head. Aroma of caramel malt. Flavor caramel malts and citrus hops. Pretty sweet, but not syrupy. Has some alcohol warmth.
