COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Did you also at some point in your life get seduced by promising words like ’probably the best in the world’, ’it works every time’ etc.? This American Barley Wine Ale says it how it is. It’s intense, attention seekingly hoppy, and definitely your kind of beer. A beer with a big ego, drive and a huge thirst for recognition.

Reddish brown pour, cream colored head. A mix of resiny hops, toffee, brown sugar, spiced apple, pear. Bold and pretty nice.

Pailhead (4897) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy caramel, toffee, light-moderate aged citrus hops, and oxidation. It pours a cloudy orangish-brown with a two finger khaki head that quickly fades to a thin film. There is a good sheet of lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate caramel and toffee. There is some light fruit in the middle. The finish has aged citrus hops, light oxidation. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel.

thebeertourist (4859) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2014
On tap at Olympen. Dark ruby red with a creamy head. Delicious chocolate marzipane aroma with hints of wood. Marzipane, nutty, woody and fruity flavours, quite dry. Body could be slightly fuller. Still a masterpiece.

Cirrhosis (1215) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 15, 2014
Dark amber body with micro floaties everywhere, a quarter inch cap floats on top. Aroma is sugary sweet, oaky grape, caramel, lots of yum. I can smell this all night......... sooooooo good! Taste is good but not as good as the aroma, heavy wood, big sugar, grape. Brew has a very mild sour hiding in the aftertaste. Bitterness is mild and lingers in the finish. I taste lots of stuff but they have no name. The flavour with no name. My opinion of this keeps shifting from a 4.5 to a 3.0 and back again on every sip. I do love this beer but..............

ansalon (1500) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2014
SWBF 2014. Pours caramel with a low tan head. Aromas of caramel, raisins, figs, dates, honey, slight roasted notes and some butterscotch. Taste is very much a classic american barley wine: sweet yet hoppy with that nice malty backbone that ties it all up. Mouthfeel is smooth with slight carbonation. Very good!

Då var vi på Isikaya Dricker Flarra. Ok rätt spännande Freudian öl. Menar söt Barely Wine. Men väldigt passande till japanska maten som serveras här. Frisk ren med lite oljig sötma i gommen. Medel beska. Fy..a. Hick .

SudsMcDuff (5866) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Had the night before i headed to my first GABF .. . deep brown .. mild foam .. . rich malt, boozy bread, and dark toffee .. . solid mouth and a mild sweet boozy finish .. . a fantastic barleywine, would do well in a barrel .. . . If you tell me to make myself at home, I’m going to pee in your trash can, it’s what I do.

crossovert (7565) - Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2014
355ml bottle. Amber pour, soapy off-whit head. Scent is booze, perfume, caramel soy, slight balsamic, bread. Flavor is burnt sugar, booze, medium/persisting bitterness, caramel, some floral herbal hops, not really my type of barleywine, just too many off-notes.

libertine (215) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - OCT 4, 2014
pours a cloudy dark burgundy, sediment floating in my snifter with a thin white head. aroma is fantastic. Burnt sugar, dark fruit,molasses and light resin. Flavor is more intense on the hops than you get from the aroma. light citrus, candied sugars,plum, resinous. full bodied. oily/slick mouth feel. Big dry bitter finish. Fantastic.

NeuroPliny (159) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 2, 2014
Poured into a tulip glass. Cloudy mahogany in colour with a quickly fading off-white head. Aroma is sweet malt, caramel, citrus, dried apricot, and peach nectar. Flavour is hoppy grapefruit, burnt malts, brown sugar, peach, and spices. Wonderful barley wine!
