Aromas of dark fruit, caramel, and perhaps hints of oak. A moderately hazy, dark copper pour with a thin off-white ring and no lacing. The taste is caramel, roasted fruit, oak, with suggestions of molasses and tobacco. Some alchocol is present. A long satisfying aftertaste. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall,somewhat sweet up front giving way to a rich roasty quality. This brew has more character than Deep Ellum’s Numb Confort or Saint Arnold’s 20th Annivsary Ale offering.

Excellent after dinner barley wine served on tap at Taphouse Grill in Seattle. Definitely a sipping beer that was my desert for the night.

rougeau13 (1987) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Clear ruby-amber-brown with a beige head. Aroma of raisins, caramel, sweet cake, toffee, and wine barrel. Taste is full of sweet dark fruits; very desert-like, with nice bitterness and woodiness, and very little booze character. Medium-full bodied, somewhat light carbonation. Very well balanced. Amazing stuff.

This is one of the best barley wines I’ve had. Aromas are sweet and vinous. Grains too. Flavors are sweet. Sherry, grapes, brown sugar. Excellent stuff.

Voodoo (304) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Pours a deep, hazy chestnut brown with a fairly dense head. Aroma is woodiness, raisins, sweet maltiness. Taste is very smooth with fair mouthfeel, fruitiness, wine notes and raisins continue in the taste, sweet with slight boozy notes in the end. Quite a nicely built brew.

Pours dark with hints of amber and small head. Great sweet aroma with hints of wine. The mouth feel on this Barleywine is perfect, so smooth. The ABV is hidden well. Great taste and palate. Overall one of my favorite Barleywines. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasting at Chez Bruce. Thanks to Colin. Hazy deep amber beer, good bubbly pale tan head. Palate is airy and a little dry. Light fine carbonation. Sweetish light malt with a nice toffee streak. Spice. Touch of dried fruits but it’s mostly toffee and big beer spice. Light dry finish.

Bottle split at Bruce’s pad, big thanks to my OR supplier - he of said pad, 28/05/14. Dark amber with a moderate light beige swirl and edgeing. Nose is toffee, woody notes, dark fruits, vanilla, light booze, figs and dates. Taste comprises caramel, fruit cake mix, light spice, vanilla, bread pudding, dates, light boozey wash through, candied orange peel. Medium + body, fine carbonation, sweet licks in a drying close. Solid barley wine.
