dfinney23 (1586) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Pours murky brown that glows red when held up to a bright light. Aroma of toffee and caramel, with a hint of something dark and, perhaps, evil. Taste is sweet caramel with a bitter grapefruit kick at the end.

weihenweizen (1624) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a sampler glass. Pours translucent red with white-head. Good lacing, medium body, low carbonation. Taste is caramel malt and some alcohol. Pretty good for a style I don’t really care for.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 6, 2013
12oz bottle. Murky amber with a small head. Aroma is caramel, Pac NW hops, dark fruit and some alcohol. Flavor is sweet caramel malt with a firm bitterness and some alcohol head. Medium body with a sweet finish. Kind of like a sweeter Bigfoot.

fletchfighters (1039) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 5, 2013
Dark amber color, half finger of light brown head. Good lacing and retention. Big ABV legs. Nose is of raisins, dark fruits, brandy, pine, and grapefruit. Big and bold nose. Thick, chewy and sweet beer. Notes of brandy, pine, raisins, figs and dates. Very heavy feel but well hidden ABV. Some jam notes but not enough to offset the other notes. Solid as heck Barleywine. MOAR please

nimbleprop (4613) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 1, 2013
12oz bottle pours a clear, caramel amber with some creamy, off white head. Nose is heavy pine tar, soap, some booze, tropical fruit. Flavor is strong pine, some grapefruit, candy, tropical fruit, malt, some bitter greens. Full bodied, sticky finish.

brian60625 (742) - Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2013
12 ounce bottle from Madison, WI, $3.99. Big, malty, woodsy, floral, butterscotch aroma. Appearance was opaque and orange with long-lasting foam on top. Taste was rich and buttery with scotch and cake. Palate was appropriately and comfortably mid-bodied. Overall a good barleywine that affirms my impression of Central Water’s high quality stuff.

mrjaxson (283) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 8, 2013
The most consistent element of Central Waters’ Brewers Reserve series is there is a certain hugeness involved. The Kosmyk One is no exception. Huge head, aroma and taste. The body is heavy enough to be chewy. Quite boozy. Quite lovely.

budznsudz (554) - Audubon, New Jersey, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Pours dark red with a creamy white head. Aroma is dark candied fruit and malt with a touch of sweetness. Taste is brown sugar, dark fruit, and sweet malt that come together nicely with a bitter hop note. Very good barleywine.

Lighter copper pour with no head. Caramel malt, raisins, soft sweetness. Cinnamon. Semi spicy sweetness with a dry finish.

OnWisconsin (132) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Even though this beer has been cellared at the brewery you can tell this beer is young and will improve 10 fold in about 2 or 3 years. Appearance is very dark amber with minimal head. Aroma has the caramel and malt up front followed by some dark fruits and a nuttiness. Alcohol is pressing. On the palate you are hit right away with burnt caramel and malts followed by some dark fruits and finish with a noticeable alcohol burn. Mouth feel is very smooth with just enough carbonation and finishing on the dry side. This beer has a lot of complexity and will smooth out so much in years to come. High potential!
