Elaborada con 10% de alcohol con una senasión vicsosa y lúpulo que equilibra su enorme cuerpo, es esta una cerveza compleja que cambiará tu vida.

dreamflower (575) - Steinbach, Manitoba, - FEB 9, 2013
Bottle shared with northropfrye. I love this because it’s sweet, maybe a bit of oak, beautiful cognac colour, a little heavy with the alcohol but it makes sense here. Very enjoyable.

It lacks the kick of a barley wine really. Just to sweet. Plus the traditional spicy malty elements of barely don’t really appear until the last few sips. So, palate is poor. Decent thick brown looks with small, tan head. Slight aroma of woods, berryrs and malts.

DuffMan (6679) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 2, 2013
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Davey. Dark amber with golden highlights and a medium light gold head. Sweet and brandy-ish through and through, all the way to the boozy finish. The body delivered fruity toffee and dry woody notes before alcoholic warmth burned them away. Missing complexity and malt structure-- their Centenario is a much better barley wine.

mcberko (6333) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 27, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours an orange amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of toffee, alcohol, caramel malts, and dark fruits - quite a bit of heat. Flavour is similar, with buttery caramel, dark fruits, brown sugar, and booze. This is a lot better than the average rating suggests. Not that complex, but still pleasant enough, despite a decently harsh booziness. Decent.

tobias (202) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2013
22 oz bottle: color is a nice ruby, garnet color. Thin head that fades very quickly. Aroma seems to be fairly oxidized, almost sherry like. Some hints of sweet, candied fruit and alcohol. Taste is pretty much the same. Overly sweet, unbalanced and noticeable, harsh alcohol with oxidization. This is my first beer by this brewery and i am not a fan.

patricks110 (1620) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 8, 2013
A boozy mess thatbisnt really a barleywine. Pours a dark murky ruby colour with a thin dead head. yhe nose is fruity with brown sugar and dried prunes and raisins. Mild flavour with a bit of fruitiness and mild toffee fruits. Boozy and boozy finish!

Chudwick (2110) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - SEP 5, 2013
bomber - pours ruby amber with light tan head. Nose is booze, dark fruit, brown sugar, and more dark fruit. Flavor adds caramel and nuts. Really harsh, wow. Dry from the booze. Pretty sure that this beer will NOT change my life. I wish I could find a date on the bottle, because the nuttiness makes me think this is really old. Metallic aftertaste. Very sweet!

BeerKurve (500) - - JUN 30, 2013
Dark Red when held up to a light but looks pitch black normally. Pretty strong caramelized malts and mild hops in the nose with plum, grape and fruity notes. Flavor is caramelized malts, mild hops, booziness, slight spice and plums. Maltiness also feels very artificial, almost like syrup. Body is light and carbonation moderate. I never had a bad barleywine until now, avoid this at all costs!

fonefan (34777) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2013

Bottle 22fl.oz.

Unclear matt medium amber colour with a small, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, vintage - oxidide, sweet malt. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet with a long duration, alcohol, caramel. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20130315]

I really like this brewery but unfortunately their beers seem to sit around in weird places, never had a really fresh bottle of any of their beers .. . pours out copper .. good foam level .. . dark fruit, mild oxidation, syrup, and mild resin .. . easy going mouth, a pretty nice beer- nothing outrageous but solid .. . . Ignore that bloated corpse! Look at how safe our new building is!

Chuckaduck (640) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle. 5/9/13. Pours deep translucent red with a thin, bubbly, off-white head. Some oily streaks of bubbles hang around for a while. Aroma is pretty nice; vanilla, caramel, fruity, berries, alcohol, bread. Taste is very similar; caramel, vanilla, sweet fruits and berries (just a touch cloying); bitter finish, grass and citrus peel. No lacing. Medium carbonation. Mouth feel is slick, oily. Alcohol is relatively well hidden. However, there is something in here that tastes artificial, overly sweet but sickly; reminds me of aspartame. It’s subtle; but when I pick up on it, I don’t like it. Loses some serious points there; exercise that demon and you have a decent barley wine.
