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).

Draft (2014) at Flying Dog Brewery poured into a goblet. Pours an amber/caramel color with off-white head. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, spices. Tastes of caramel, brown sugar, resin, light citrus, light booze, sweet fruit. Medium body with a sticky and dry finish. Also tried the 2013 vintage on draft, couldn’t tell a huge difference but maybe a bit less sweet with a year on it.

Färg : BRUN! Aromen lite söt krämig kola. Tycker den är rätr välbalanserad i smaken och kroppen hyffsad fyllig.

Really yeast, malty aroma, the head disappears quite quickly. Licorice flavour very prominent . Going to leave the beerto warm up before I drink the rest .

330ml botte, pours dark brown with an off white head. Very caramel malty aroma, with fruity textures and a well balanced bitter finish. The sweetness of the malt is there but never becomes too sweet. Nice carbonation. Good barley wine.

Strykzone (5072) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2014
12 ounce bottle from jdb288. I rolled the bottle and a nice amount of yeast sediment was unseated. The result was a very hazy dark brown beer. Just a little head. An aroma that included dark fruit was noticed at a distance. Plums and raisins. Those are tasted along with big caramel malts. A really tasty beer that has a lot of good stuff going on.

angel77 (1093) - oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 16, 2014
Botella de 33 cl en el lupulo un montón de veces durante el año 2010 y 2011. Una gran Barley wine y con carácter gracias a sus 10.2 vol. Sabores bastante dulces de uvas y ciruela pasas, con toques tostados y cierto regusto final de amargor. Cuerpo medio con un color negro con espuma blanca marfil. Una gran cerveza inicio de mis andaduras por nuevos estilos y países, lo primero en llegar por asturias de eeuu. Para repetir sin dudarlo, pura nostalgia.

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.
