Thanks IBrew2or3 for the share. An English Style Barley Wine from Mexico enjoyed in Florida. That is right up his alley. Pours brown with a white head. Nose is caramel, brandy, booze, and raisin with a bit of hops. Flavor is similar with raisins, brandy, malt, and some hops dominant. Interesting, medium-bodied barleywine.

Bottle, 750ml. Pours a heavy, black liquid with a small offwhite head. Aroma is of dry fruits, dark chocolate and coffee. The body is heavy and robust, with a strong alcohol and raisin aftertaste. Best beer made in Mexico.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2010
750ml Bottle: Aroma of malt, toasted caramel, light rubber, slight alcohol, slight dark ripe fruit, and some burnt sugar. Poured copper/deep amber/mahogany in color with a small, creamy, dense, tan head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Slightly sparkling. Full of tiny particles throughout. Flavor is medium sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of malt, light dark ripe fruit, smoke, wood, toasted caramel, and some hops. Medium body. Slick, then dry texture. Soft to average carbonation. Malt, light dark ripe fruit, wood, light smoke, and toasted caramel finish is lightly dry. Wood and oak flavors really enhance this one.

Bottle from a trade with cbkschubert. Pours cloudy dark reddish brown color with tan head. Aromas of molasses and dark fruits. Big sweet flavors of caramel, molasses, raisins and figs. Alcohol is well hidden. The best beer I have ever had from Mexico. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Thanks Craig.

Bottle shared by someone at the Bruery Reserve Society Initiation. Pours a mostly clear orangish-amber color with a decent off-white head. Aroma is caramel malt, wood, dark fruits, and faded hops. Flavor is pretty solid with caramel, toffee, vanilla, fruity notes, mild sherry oxidation, wood, and citrusy hops. Medium body for the style with some booze and a some slight hop oils. Maybe the best Mexican beer I’ve had, not that that is saying too much.

Bottle shared by alexanderj. A bit clear in appearance for a barleywine. Aroma is slightly aged malt, caramel vanilla and toast. The flavor is the same, subdued hops and nice sweetness.
