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.

Bottled on 2/19/98 - A hoppy barleywine with beautiful color. A nice beer to sip that's a bit different than most Barley Wine's.

This barleywine is a very hoppy example of the style, exhibiting exremely spicy Mt Hood/Hallertauer flavor, much like what I found in Avery Czar. The malt is big as well, sweet, honeyed, showing a bit of fruitiniess, but framed with the hop spice. I'm tempted to say that the hop spice might be a bit much for me. Handsome cherry color.

Bottling date: 3/05/2002 drank on 2/04/2003. Pours a dark orange color with a nice head. Plum alcohol aroma mixed with British hops. Starts sweet ends very dry and malty. You may need a knife to cut through it. Thanks to whoever traded this to me many months ago!

Copper colored, maintains a small head(what I'd expect for a barley). I like this beer. English hops and well malted, seem to have a nice balance. The aroma had more of an alcohol scent than the flavor. Nice sipp'n winter brew!

Cloudy brown color, sweet malty aromas, hints of honey in both the nose as well as the flavors, also some undertones of brown sugar, very sweet aftertaste, very well balanced & full bodied, slight hoppiness in the palate as well, very nice barleywine

(Aged 2 years in bourbon cask) No head at all. Ruby brown color -- deep, dark with ruby highlights. Very striking bourbon aroma (leaning toward sherry). Alcohol aroma. Very stong porty, bourbony, winey flavor (with some vinegar in it). Not a lot going on in the palate, though it leaves a faint butterscotch aftertaste. A bit of smokiness in the aftertaste, too, as it warms up a bit. As you can tell, there's a lot of alcohol aroma and flavor going on here -- deep, rich, meaty alcohol-ness.

argo0 (11329) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 17, 2003
(Aged 2 years in a bourbon cask): Clear ruby body with no head. Great aroma -- bourbon and wood, port-like. Taste is flat, but soft liquory, bourbon silky, vanilla, some wood and dark fruit. I can"t imagine the regular version is so good, but damn I hope to try it this way again!

A really good, strong barley wine. A bit heavy, but that is to be expected. Malt is dominant with a receeeding but distinct hoppiness. Not the biggest big beer out there, but a contender.

Pours a cloudy deep orange color with an off-white head that does not linger. Nice and strong malty aromathat warns what is in store for you when you drink this beer. Thick and malty flavor, with a touch of bitterness and alcohol in the finish. A very nice barley wine.
