I always love a good barlywine, and this one does not disappoint. Dark and cloudy amber color. Citrus and caramel aroma. Very bitter flavor is balanced by a fairly smooth mouthfeel. This is not the most unique barlywine Iíve ever tasted, but it is still wonderful.

Thanks Chris and Meredith! Bottle. The aroma escapes the instant I break the capís seal -- rich with warming sugar and a sense of home. It carries almost 2 feet from the goblet! The beer is deep brown, like stained oak furniture. The head is firm and stoic. The beer drinks with an amazing balance, rich with baked brown sugar and warming ethanol, laced with some pine and citric acidity. Remarkably easy to drink for its depth and strength. Amazing stuff.

11/23/13. 22oz bottle. Amber brown pour with a nice khaki tan head that sticks. Malty aroma, some distinct fruitiness, dark fruits, brown sugar, burnt toffee and caramel. Nice flavor, mellow, good bitterness balances with dark sugars and fruits, toffee, and biscuity malt. Tasty.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark red with white head. Aroma is caramel, strawberries, raspberries, fruity, wood, sweet and aromatic hops. Flavour is medium to heavy bitter, fruity, wood, caramel and sweet. Full, thick and medium carbonated. Normally I love bitter but maybe they went a bit over the top with the hops for this one. Iím not sure it should be this bitter. Nonetheless, excellent brew.

Medium beige head. Clear deep dark red body. Fruity resiny
raisiny aroma with strawy chocolatey notes. Dry-sweet strawy
roasty fruity taste with resiny raisiny notes. Mid-to-full body.
Sharpish mouthfeel. Dryish resiny strawy marzipan aftertaste
with raisiny toffee and spice notes. Lovely! Highly drinkable,
gorgeous malt character, well balanced hop spiciness. A very
good beer. (0.65l bottle, from Kihoskh, Copenhagen.)

looks beautiful, amber with nice head. Aroma is resiny hoppy, malty, caramel. Taste is similar, nice balance, typical US barleywine with big hop profile and bitterness yet very well balance by a complex and smooth malt profile. Not alcohol noticable, - very underrated imo.
