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!

On tap at alehouse #1 - Pours cloudy copper with a short tan head that fades back pretty quick. Aromas of big caramel malts, toffee, and a slight whiff of citrus. Flavor is mostly malts with a good dose of sweet caramel and toffee notes. A touch of raisin there too and some citrus on the finish. Sticky sweet on the palate with low carbonation and a delicious full mouthfeel. A very well done English style barleywine!! Try this one...

hazy dark amber, wispy off white head, huge rich dark caramel malt aroma with lots of earthy hops and some hot alcohol to add to the sweetness, sticky sweet body, rich dark caramel flavor, lots of sweetness, touch of earthy bitterness tries to add balance but instead adds complexity,

hazy dark amber, headless, almost produces legs on the glass, light sweet caramel aroma, creamy body, rich fruity flavor on dark caramel malt, sweetness is present but appears tempered in relation to the big fruity character, a touch of vanilla in the sweetness continues to grow, little to no aparent bitterness, only a hint of alcohol shows up in the very last sip of the second glass, more subdued and fruity than the draft growler, not sure which I prefer

muddy burnt orange, fine beige head, drops of lace, light sweet malt aroma with no alcohol, sticky sweet body is back, rich dark caramel malt flavor with a fruity sweetness, light bitterness, on second visit the draft version does have a bigger body and more assertive dark caramel flavor and bitterness than the cask, draft wins

Pours hazy brown with a tan head. The aroma has smoky rich malt, lots of caramel and toffee - very sweet. Medium / full body with soft carbonation. The flavor has rich caramel malt and lots of fruitiness. The finish adds some thick biscuit qualities to the malt. An okay barleywine.

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.

JPDIPSO (5597) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 17, 2007
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.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 22, 2007
Tosa gathering, thanks nolankowal for sharing this growler: Hazy amber hue with a small fizzy head and some lace. The aroma has notes of fruity esters (pear, apple, fig), noble and grassy hops, floral aromatics and a touch buttery. The taste is acidic fruits, biscuity and nutty malts, with a light bitterness and a hint of pepper. The mouth feel is biting and warming, does smooth out in the end, a chalky aftertaste. Not too shabby but it would be better with some age to it.
