Aged one year in our cellars, this delightfully friuty treat is smooth enough to help you slide over the worst Y2K glitch. As you enter the 2nd millenium, take the time to enjoy Kosmyc Charlie's. Seasonal November - February.

12oz 2012 bottle in a tulip. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Aroma of caramel and toffee and light nuttiness, some light bitter notes, and dough and grains. Flavor the same. Smoother texture. A decent barley wine, but not as good as the BA version.

Medium brown in color, very light brown head. Lots of caramel, some dates, hints of brown sugar and honey. This is pretty decent overall.

Tried a glass of the Y2K and a glass of the BBBW at the brewery. Both are great. I think I prefer the BBBW version more, but the regular Y2K is much easier to drink and you notice the sweetness more. Very sweet bread like aroma. Taste is very smooth, lots of sweetness, some caramel notes, some fruit. Overall, a great beer.

For being 10%, this one is smooth and sneaky. Nice amber color on this, malty and roasty. Caramel, light fruit, and a hint of fig come through on this one.

Drank with Thijs at easter evening. Looks and smells really good. Nice golden brown beer with yellow foam. Carbonation is not so present in the taste, which starts nice and sweet, rich, but ends with an unpleasant, slightly weird bitterness.

Dark amber pour with a tan head. Aroma is sweet malt, caramel, light fruit. Taste is light fruit, alcohol, caramel, little creamy. I listed to Grateful Dead’s Cosmic Charlie as I drank this- no influence on the rating just 2 enjoyable pleasures shared.

12oz bottle pours like an Irish Red with a medium off white head. Aromas of toffee, fruit, and malt. Flavor is malt heavy with alcohol notes. Not bad.

Bottle, thanks Jimmy! Clear chestnut, small beige head, nice lacing. Aroma is dark sugars, toffee, pine. Flavor is medium sweet, fairly bitter, some vanilla. Medium body, fairly harsh finish, some astringence.

Ericular (933) - Minnesota, USA - APR 13, 2014
Sampled at the Rapids Liquor Tasting. Pours dark brown with a quickly fading head - great for the style. Aroma is dark fruits. Taste is juicy dark fruits, and tart which balances the typically heavy malts. Very nice.

A- Pours a deep brown hue with a nice, light brown head that fades fairly quickly. S- Lots of dark fruits, raisin, fig, brown sugar. Very similar to the BA version. T- Same raisin, fig and huge brown sugar notes as the nose. Finish is a little hot with some hop bite. Well balanced. M- Thick with medium carbonation. D- This is definitely a solid, drinkable barleywine. The BA version takes it to another level but I loved this one as well.
