An English style barleywine, Razorback has a dense, fruity bouquet, an intense flavour palate and a deep reddish-brown color. Its big maltiness is superbly balanced by a wonderfully bittersweet hoppiness

Faint aroma, little bit of hops. Tastes winey, with a bit of malt. Little bit of hops. Semi-strong aroma. Pretty weak mouthfeel. The alcohol predominates the flavour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark reddish-brown pour with a tannish head. Fruity, winey, malty aroma. Taste is similar - fortified wine, caramel, piney, sweet. Not bad

Oakes (13140) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 7, 2014
Slightly hazy dark amber. Thick head. Rich hoppy, fruity notes with sweet, slightly caramelly malts. Has a nice, balanced, chewy barley wine character like a cross between Big Foot and the departed Young’s Old Nick.

Sweet fruity aroma, sweet flavours of fruity. Very thick in the mouth, a little syrupy.

Davros (2168) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2013
Pours dark brown with ruby tints and a lasting head. Vinuous malty aroma. Lots of caramel alongside floral and piny hops, booze and oxidised port notes. Rich malty flavours too. Again theres lots of caramel and masses of piny hops. Nice syrupy body, could use a little more carbonation though. The alcohol seems a bit to bold.

Draught @ Feral Brewing Company.
Last beer for the day. Well last taster at least. Holds aloft a decent, compact pad of foam for the length - unusual of a Barley wine. There is minimal lace but good legs as it is swirled around the glass. The body a shimmering ruddy copper. Ultimately shows fresh baked sticky date pudding with caramel sauce on the nose; savoury, sweet, boozy, thick and hinting at butterscotch, madeira and sherry. Very medicinal in the mouth, warming, hot and again sugary sweet like that aroma. The alcohol tickles and tingles at the palate like a nip of Single malt. Bready, baked pudding malts with yeasty undertones and a hint of vanilla. Fruitcake fruit mince bitterness with the Sherry taking on a solvent-like tone late. A little on edge this one; just seems messy and erratic. Another go on another batch maybe, but on the day this was nott too pleasant at all! (10% ABV)

Tap at feral. Pours a dark brown with a disappearing beige head. Nose full of dark fruits and sweet malt. It's intense. Taste has the dark fruits blending with a strong malty caramel backing. Taste is quite sweet with the caramel, hops and malts hiding the alcohol content. Pretty good beer great barley wine.

On tap at the Alehouse Project. Great. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, wine, cherries, and alcohol. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and very long length. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied. Brown, with a frothy head.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2012 On tap at Mane Liquor. Pours a copper-red with a small beige head. Sweet malts immediately hit the nose with a slight backing of mildly dark fruits and chocolate. Tropical hops swamp over the top as it warms. Nuts and dried fruits in the taste with a lingering sweetness and a hint of milk chocolate. Again the tropical hops dominate once there is a little warmth. Mouth feel is average with a mild bitter linger. Much better than off the hand pump at the Sail

This is retired. Anyway, it was a bit messy. Muted nose. Very medicinal. Lots of sweet syrupy like flavours. Can’t say I would recommend this.
