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).

Bottle at North Bar, Leeds. I think this was my first barleywine, so I’m surprised I’ve not rated it yet. Pours a deep, ruby brown, small head. Aroma is red and dried fruits, big caramel, cinnamon and other spice. Taste is sweet (particularly for an American barleywine), with caramel, treacle, liquorice, sultanas. Full bodied, lasts forever, with bitterness finally showing up then. Oooh yes.

Dark burnt bronze pour. Negligible head. Caramel and alcohol are the Predominant aromas. Sweet caramel flavor, spread across a bready backbone. Strong alcohol presence. Could probably benefit from a little celering time. Generally, good barelywine.

A- Pours a murky brownish hue with a huge, chunky head. S- Plum, raisin, fig T- Lots of dark fruit, fig, brown sugar, a tad cloying M- Thick with medium-low carbonation. D- Nice little english barleywine. Nothing too special but a solid barleywine that’s great on a cold night.

33cl bottle sampled in a snifter. Pours a dark brown brew with a small light beige head with low retention and nearly no lacing. Aroma honey, bread, alcohol and lots of licorice. Taste of caramel, licorice, dried fruit. I really like the subtly sour though against all the sweetness. Very well balanced brew! Mouthfeel is warm, full and slighly creamy. Instant favorite and highly recommended. Get’s better while the temperature rises.

Great deep and very rich barley wine taste. The first zip was a feast I didn’t expect the intense taste.

12oz bottle, served in a snifter glass. Pretty good barleywine, and definitely one of Flying Dog’s better beers - but not the greatest.
