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.

2012.08.07 - on tap at Always Ron's. Pours a ruby copper with thin white head. Aroma very nondescript to my nose. Taste is fleeting, off the taste buds as fast as it was on. Mouthfeel very smooth, almost "flat", little carbonation. For a barley wine, this is very smooth and hides the alcohol well.

12 oz single bottle from Molly’s Spirits. Reddish brown appearance with a tan head. Aroma of caramel malt, toffee, resinous hops and light alcohol. The flavor adds medium to heavy bitterness and mild sweetness with hints of fruity esters. Full body with a lingering hoppy finish that mellows out to a nice balance as it warms. A nice sipper overall.

SvanteL (307) - SWEDEN - SEP 25, 2016
Mörkt bärnstensfärgad, disig. Alkoholig doft med apelsin- och grapeskal. Vinös smak med en stor beska som kommer direkt, mycket av det vita på grapenfrukten. Tja, lite för mycket beska, blev lite enkelspårig. De Klomp: Barley Wine-provning

the aroma is fruity and spicy with hints of plum, berries, grapes and toffee... the taste is fruity and caramel with notes of plum, dog-rose, garden berries, red wine and dark fruits... sweet, dry and warming aftertaste...

Rei00 (66) - CHILE - SEP 8, 2016
Una Barley Wine de color marrón anaranjado y baja carbonatación. Su aroma es a caramelo toffee, manjar y toques frutales de mango y plátano maduro. Su sabor es a toffee, caramelo, ciruelas, vainilla, chocolate amargo y cáscara de pomelo con el alto amargor del lúpulo y un final alcohólico a cognac. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Echon (387) - Århus, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2016
Deep red. Malt, caramel, dried fruit, a bit of alcohol and some spicy hops come to mind here. The taste is full and sweet, with a good bitter finish. It hides the abv fairly well. Full body. Overall, a great barley wine. It is not overly sweet, as some of Evil Twin’s beers tend to be, and I enjoyed it until the last drop. Not as vinous as The Perfect Nose. Rich and tasty.

Bottle from Spec’s. Hazy reddish amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of toffee, toast, fig, and caramel. Taste is sweet and full of dark fruits. Full bodied.

dambor (429) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 27, 2016
Pours ruby red with medium head. Aroma: very pleasant aroma of malt (a bit nutty), herbs, pine tree, some biscuit and bread. Taste: a bit sweet, with hoppy counterbalance, some biscuit and hazelnut. Palate is pretty extreme regarding hops and long. A very good representative of the style.

thirstyrabbit (1751) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 25, 2016
Bottle, BB 01/02/2020. Clear bright copper body, medium head. Aroma has American hops, liquid caramel and some figs. Also some sweet vanilla. Medium thick body for the style and the drinkability is nice. Taste has smooth caramel, dried fruit, figs, vanilla and a reasonable dose of American hops. And even the sweetness is in balance (at first I was a bit skeptical that it could perhaps be too extreme like Molotov Cocktail). Feels quite complex, yet also easily drinkable. Good one.
