The Mighty Fish Brewers first produced 10˛ Barley Wine Ale to celebrate Fish Brewing Company’s tenth anniversary. The ale was so good and the response to it so overwhelmingly positive that it has become the crown jewel of our new RELEASES line. Ten different hops - Horizon, Chinook, Columbus, Willamette, Tradition, Northern Brewer, Santiam, Tettmanger, Cascade and Golding, in the order of their use - give Ten Squared a unique hop character which has to be tasted to be believed. Even with 100 IBUs, this brew sports a strong malt backbone. Two-row Pale, Caramel 40, Caramel 75, Special B and Aromatic malts impart remarkable balance for such a hop monster. This is smooth ale with surprising similarities to ten year old malt whiskey. Produced for the Holidays 10˛ Highly-Hopped Barley Wine Ale is usually available into late spring.

22oz bottle. Pours a dark amber with a thin white head. Caramel, toffee, pine, very bitter. I'm not a fan of Barleywine as I find them to be too sweet but this one had a nice bitterness to balance it out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MadRobin (2830) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Poured from 22 oz. bottle. Densely murky with an enormous volume of assorted sizes of pale sediment, a small yellow-khaki head and very good lacing. Aroma of aged leather, caramel, apples, tobacco, pears, leaf mould, earthy hops, pine and brown sugar. Taste of apple cider, caramel, earthy hops, old leather, tobacco, leaf mould, pine, apples, plums and toffee. Medium/full body and medium/high carbonation with only an occasional piece of sediment noticeable on the palate. Except for the excessive sediment, this is a nice, complex barleywine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Bomber. Dark amber colored with a small layer of tan head. Aroma is a potent blend of earthy hops resin, caramel, dark fruits and citrus. The flavor follows through with a hefty dose of caramel malt, grapefruit rind and resiny hops bitterness as well as some pine, oak and honey. Moderately thick and creamy body with soft carbonation and more caramel sweetness and herbal bitterness in the finish. Definitely one of the more aggressively hoppy and bitter Barley Wines around. Not that I’m complaining.

jcartamdg (3144) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Pours a deep amber brown with no head. Aroma of malt, bitter hops and booze. Taste is bitter yet malty, pine and citrus with a lot of caramel. Medium mouthfeel, more going on than your average American barleywine

Bacterial (2871) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Slightly hazy bet pour with an off white head. Hoppy and malty nose. Soft and mellow but still sweet and hoppy. Very good.

maxwelldeux (4351) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy reddish brown color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is hoppy and a little funky and very characteristic of the style. Taste is a little sour and definitely bitter from the hops, though it tastes like the hops are a little old. Not a great barley wine.
