Very nice beer. Mellow, root beer and vanilla tastes. Sip this one. Characteristics of conoisseurship reek throughout this one, worthy of the name "barley wine". Yet raring enough to make you want to go shag like a horn dog.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, sampled at beer & chocolate tasting
Well crafted, balanced barley wine. The oat character is evident, and the body is fuller and more sweet because of it. The aroma is buttery (in a good way) and maple. Flavor is anise and butterscotch, with some English-style malt attributes. Finish is sticky, sweet and swell. Underrated on this site.

This bottled brew poured a very small sized head of foamy finely sized mostly lasting light brown colored bubbles that left behind a poor lacing. The body contained no visible carbonation, was nearly opaque and unnoted in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild vinous malt and raisin. Its mouth feel is initially slightly tingly with a lingering tingly palate. Its flavor contained different tastes than I have noted before with some dark beer brown malty notes and was tasty. An above average brew.

I found this in a back woods liquor store and was surprised to see it was 2003.The nose from this was quite nice,better than a lot of BW’s I have had.sweetness of malt,dark fruits blended together with a strong toffee aroma.Very nicely done.This brew was pretty syrupy but that syrup had a heck of a flavor.Thick mouthfeel.

Rich mahognay color with off white head. Chocolate covered cherry nose with pillowy malt aromas. Heavy mouthfeel with richness till the end which is long in coming. Chocolate, malt, tootsie roll, and some fruit all mingle. A nice brew!

Nice to see that I am not the only one that dislikes the flying dog line up of "beers" probably my second favorite from them though not as bad as I was expecting given my history with there other offerings....

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep brown with tiny tan head. Aroma of prunes, toffee, and a bit too much alcohol. Good body. This isn’t a bad barley wine but the appealing flavors of fruit, malts, and such are overshadowed by the strong aroma and taste of alcohol.
