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.

Ungstrup (29828) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2005
[1998 bottle] A hazy dark amber beer with a disappearing off-white head. The aroma is of alcohol and yeast. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol and oranges.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 26, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of nicolascage. Hazy, amber golden with an off-white head that leaves some lacework. Extremely dry whiskey aroma. Medium in body with a strangely limited malt base and again these very distinct notes of whiskey. Somehow the body isn’t huge enough to contain all the alcohol hence the beer appears somewhat inharmonious. But not unpleasant in any way. 201107

19th April 2008 Silky smooth but low carbonation. Hops dominate but the bitterness doesn’t. I find it to hoppy for a barleywine but very decent though.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2008 2008-09-06, draught at Old Dominion Brewhouse, Washington, 6-3-7-4-14=34
It’s served in a completely wrong glass; hazy amber color. It has some malt aroma. Good body, good caramel flavor, with correct sweetness, good bitterness level, some alcohol feeling.
Powerful but not exciting, it doesn’t keep up with the bottled version.

Beautiful red-amber color. Buttery malt aroma. Strong mouthfeel, rich malt flavor, very sweet, with sweet caramel, fudge, cookies, sweet chocolate; warming, with a touch of aged rum; a good hopping provides the necessary balance. The flavor is a bit more on the sweet side; the palate a bit more bitter, with strong toffee character. Excellent.

Comparison to the oak aged version. This one has a stronger character and is more warming, both the aroma and flavor are maltier, resulting in a stronger body too, and the final is more bitter; in other words, it’s more complex. This beer can stand a longer cellaring. A solid beer to be fully enjoyed, whenever there is a chance.

MiP (13774) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2006

Travlr (13196) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Bottle. Gold color, not much head or lacing. Pretty much a straightforward caramel color and flavor barleywine.
