COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big malty flavors, including licorice and chocolate, are balanced with a moderate hop profile. Brewed with copious amounts of prized malts and flaked oats, the Barley Wine is so strong that it has to be aged for several months before we can bottle it. Like a fine wine, it will continue to improve with age up to 2 years after bottling (If kept cool).

Bella barley wine dal corpo pieno e alcolico ben arrangiato. Gusto sprezzantemente dolce, con notte di frutta scura. Agguerrita e allo stesso tempo penetrante e oleosa. Da meditazioni memorabili.

Pours a clear dark orange. Aroma is a nice mix of malt and dark fruit. Taste is what you’d expect of a barely wine: malt, dark fruit, grape. Sweet to start with a hard alcohol taste.

Doften är full av russin och plommon. även smaken gĺr tydligt ĺt det hĺllet. Riktigt fyllig med bra tyck. En trevlig bekantskap

Bottle - dark with beige head. Sweet malty aroma with liquorice and dark fruit. Sweet, rather cloying taste, full bodied. Smooth with some late warming alcohol in the finish. Nice.

Great Barleywine. Especially for the one who wants to break into a different style. Pours copper with a khaki head. Floral hops fill your nose with a hint of booze. Taste is balances between malts and high levels of hops. However, there is no lingerong bitterness. There for you can sip again and enjoy the roller coaster rode all over again. Overall a great Barleywine. Aging the last few years to see how the floral notes diminish to see the effect. One of flying dogs finest!

Ruprecht_007 (549) - Cesky Tesin, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 20, 2013
Tmavá barva, Vůně příjmená karamelová a bylinná. SLadká vůně. chuť: sladký příjemný nástup, mléčná čokoláda, koňaková stopa, alkohol příjemně lehce v pozadí. Plné tělo. Chmel v pozadí, pouze lehký náznak, ale střední dozvuk. Výborné pivo

elbernays (310) - IRELAND - DEC 19, 2013
Pours amber. Aroma is toffee, caramel, alcohol with slight herbs. Sweet aroma is very much in prominence. Flavour is syrupy sweet, cough medicine texture. Bit of spice and cream chocolate. Alcohol burn on the finish. Body is medium which is surprising and I do not think the alcohol is managed too well. The hops give it a very dry finish and this accentuates the alcohol. Its okay but I think it is missing a more rounded finish.

allmyvinyl (2173) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 16, 2013
355ml bottle at home. Pours clear copper brown, no head. Aromas of syrup and cough medicine, heavy caramel. Taste is mostly more sweetness, but a light herbal bite at the end. More like a British barley wine than a US one. Very nice on a cold winters night.

Cerveza tipo Barley Wine. Color marrón oscuro con capa de espuma blanca casi inapreciable, gasificación media. Olor dulce y acaramelado. En boca se nota el alcohol, con toque también acaramelado y con notas a plátano y chocolate. El final es dulzón.

Bottle at home. Red-brown with small white head. Sweet and fruity aroma. Thick and oily. Taste of sweet malts and alcohol. Warming aftertaste.
