COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dominion Millennium is a very strong ale brewed in the English Barley Wine style. Often called the "sherry of the beer world", barley wine is best sipped at warmer temperatures, and should be enjoyed in moderation, as it contains twice the alcohol of regular beers.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 5, 2013
2010, 10.5% abv bottle thanks to billshmeinke. Pours with a quite murky deep bronze to amber hue with a medium sized offwhite head that fades to a ring. Big aroma of booze, sweet cara malts, stewed fruits, figs, dates, marmalade and honey. Very sticky smelling yet pretty refined. Flavors are malty, sweet, toasty, honeycomb, tea, marmalade and raisins. Lots of crystal malts, yet surprisingly not quite as sticky as expected. Medium to full body, medium carbonation with some alcohol.

On draft at the Mad Fox Barley Wine Festival, Falls Church VA. Pours an almost clear amber with a creamy off white head that receded leaving lots of lacing. Caramel and raisin notes in the nose. Viscous mouth feel with medium carbonation. Flavors of honey, caramel and citrus hops. Alcohol strong in the bitter finish.

Delicious Barley Wine-style beer. Malty with fruity notes. The heaviness of this beer means you won’t be tempted to "throw them back". This beer should be sipped and enjoyed. Works very well as a "dessert beer". 2012 vintage was MUCH better than 2011’s.

radio_nowhere (820) - Maryland, USA - JAN 20, 2013
12oz bottle into snifter glass. Reddish brown color with off-white head. Aroma of sweet bready malt, caramel, honey, dried fruits(raisins, plums, figs) and alcohol. Taste is the same as aroma, a little tartness too. Moderate mouth-feel and carbonation, balanced, somewhat hot alcohol and hoppy finish after the overall rich sweetness. Very good.

coolfunnj (323) - Margate City, New Jersey, USA - JAN 11, 2013
yeasty,roasty malts in the aroma,a bit fruity and raisiny too,honey,and a hint of hops as well...appearance..slightly cloudy brownish amber creamy white head good lacing...i get a strong and slightly scotch like alcohol hit up front in the flavor and finish.. fruitiness and surprising bitterness,or is that burn,in between..some barleywines tend more toward the scotch ale side and this is one.if thats your bag you might like this,but for me it’s.not bad but not a fav

sonnycheeba (3554) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Tap. Pours mostly clear brown with a hint of amber and average, creamy, off-white head; decent retention and spare lacing. Aroma is cookie and bread malts, cherries, figs, yeast, and light chocolate. Flavor is sweet malt forward with a heavy dose of dark fruit esters and faint floral hops; dry finish with light booze. Full body and low carbonation.

Butters (3763) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 17, 2012
’04 vintage shared at Blue Christmas 2012. Near clear amber copper pour with minimal offwhite head. Notes of plum, figs, raisin, and mild alcohol. This had mellowed quite nicely. Still had some decent carbonation on it too. This was pretty tasty,even if a good bit oxidized, but the ’05 oaked version was superior.
