Iím not a big fan of the barleywine style. Iíve tried specifically those which others have rated highly. While I found this more drinkable than Anchorís Old Foghorn, it was still quite unpleasant. Very full beer which stays on the tongue for a while. Rich alcohol flavor. Maybe I should give it another go, but didnít like it the first time around.

Bottle.2003 Vintage. Pours a deep rich caramel/red color with a thin head and some lacing. Nose of caramel apples. Very balaced maltiness with a slight hop bite. Very drinkable.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2006 One of those great finds that you have had a few times and assumed you have rated but low and behold have not, malty with bold spiceyness. A bit more chunky than most barleywines, but a nice drink.

ruby chestnut pour with fading head.Oaky vanilla scents are coupled with a dried fruit, toasted chocolate, quiet burbon and brandy aroma. A piney hop bittering and almost nutty flavor works with a brandylike warming taste which lingers with complexity on the palate. Nice.

Deep amber in color, initially a thick tan head. Alcohol and ripe fruits. Big and full, very ripe. Yeasty hints. A creamy mouthfeel and a warm yeasty finish.

Pours reddish brown with a creamy tan head and plenty of lace. Aromas of fresh hops, grassy, floral. Taste is rather light for a nine percent, making drinking it a bit dangerous. Slightly bitter finish.

2003 - Nice subtle malt aroma. Malty backbane with a good balance of bitterness. Still a bit young. This beer should age quite well.

I really liked this barleywine, which is not one of my favorite styles. Attractive pour at the brewpub and inviting. Aromas are vinous and sweet. Flavors are ever so slightly sour with caramel and toffee plus hop power. Body is rich and decadent. This is really great IMHO...a top tier barleywine.
