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.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2014 On tap at Local Option. Pours a hazy deep amber with a yellowish tan head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has notes of toffee, caramel and a strong pine hop notes. Flavor begins sweet with grains but finish is hoppy and resinous with a hint of backing caramel.

mcberko (6734) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 3, 2012
On tap for Hard Liver ’12, pours a murky dark orange brown with a small tan head. Aroma is extremely hop-forward, with citrus fruits and grapefruit peel - some caramel malt to back. Flavour is also extremely hop-forward more reminiscent of a IIPA - very dry palate with citrus fruits / peel and just enough malt. Delicious hoppy barley wine.

marcus (6606) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours reddish brown with an attractive tan head and a sugar and alcohol aroma. There is a raspy caramel malt flavor with s some tobacco and brown sugar and noticeable alcohol. It’s much more bitter than the average barleywine. It all works pretty well.

DrSilverworm (6602) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2014
10oz on tap at Dutch’s. Mostly clear darker red color. Good thin cream-colored head, leaves good thicker lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Great texture.. Lightly dry finish. Great dark fruit aroma, and bigger hop to balance it out. Tropical fruit, some resin, pine. Moderate sweet, bigger bitter taste. Light bit of hoppy heat at the end. A real nice barley wine. A bit of heat to it, but a nice bit of hop as well. Nice, hoppy aromatic stuff.

lusikka (6354) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2012
750 ml bottle. Thanks hanniku.
Pours a hazy dark amber colour. Aroma of stinging floral hops, caramel and gooseberry bush. Rich flavour of floral hops, gooseberry bush, strawberries, caramel and hay. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a long, bitter and very harsh finish. Too raw at this point, but on the other hand I don’t think that this will improve much after some aging.
