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.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - APR 11, 2003
Dark red. Citrusy, hoppy nose. Alcohol evident, but no where near 11.4%. Well balanced and an interesting hop presence. Overall a good beer that is drinkable.

VAYankee (345) - Virginia, USA - MAR 28, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2004 Re-rate: Bottle aged for one year. Cloudy light reddish brown body with minimal head. Beautiful sweet honey aroma also with malt, vanilla, and a touch of alcohol. Smooth and mellow. Fantastic initial burst of sweet malt, vanilla, light fruitiness, faint earthiness and alcohol that unfortunately fades to quickly. Aftertaste has mild alcohol bite and moderate bitterness. Both this beer and my palate have improved in the last year, so this rating is definitely being upgraded. Bottled Jan 2003. A rich red-brown color with minimal head. Sweet, light, malty, alcoholic aroma. Initially a hoppy and slightly fruity flavor. Defintely a strong alcohol taste. The hop bitterness tends to linger on lightly.

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!

obxdude10 (2270) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2003
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.

(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!
