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).

Strong malty aroma. Deep brown/red appearance. Malty flavor is citrus undertones. Very smooth with poor bitter finish. High quality.

kwerikson (178) - burlington, New Jersey, USA - DEC 11, 2009
pours a dark clear amber with a thin tan beige head. aromas were really strong when i opened it. the body is a clear dark amber and the head faded to just about nothing. it is almost full bodied and a little on the sweet side. has nice mouth feel and the alcohol content is well hidden. i smell a lot of malt, some alcohol, and some really ripe fruit with spices. it tastes nice with a really nice aftertaste that is really plesent to enjoy. it is also a little spicy before it finishes and has notes of bitter vegetables and pungent fruit. nice warmer for the body on a cold night.

tabernae (178) - Latina, ITALY - MAY 16, 2011
colore caramello scuro con una schiuma chiara poco persistente, al naso alcool, poi malto, caramello, frutta secca, cioccolato. al palato è un pò stucchevole, l’alcool è evidente,ma fa da contraltare una struttura dolce e burrosa, che non mi convince, solo alla fine le note luppolate riequilibrano un pò la beva. tutto sommato una buona birra, a tratti troppo dolce, ma nello stile ci può stare.

Murky pour of disparate stew yields a sweet malty nose that is deep. Palate is smooth, if a bit uneven. Flavor is malt tones of licorice and oak that melds together nicely, is enjoyable, but is ultimately frustrating as it becomes monotone. They have one foot out the door here with some richness in malt tones, but it stumbles before achieving true barleywine success. Kind of, sort of worth a try.

12 ounce bottle- poured a dark caramel brown, clear, with a moderate beige head that dissipated too quickly. Aroma was all caramel and smoke. Caramel and dark fruit taste immediately filled the mouth. Very smooth, very enjoyable. The alcohol content caught me by surprise. All in all, an excellent brew.

A little to sweet for my taste, I prefer a hoppier Barley Wine. This had a fruity taste, and the aroma was also very fruity. I wasnt that impressed with this beer. However, the ABV is well hidden.

Pours a beautiful, dark ruby/mahogany with a small, off-white head and slight carbonation. Aroma is caramel, vanilla, raisins, plum and alcohol. The alcohol is present, but well masked by the dark fruits. Mouth is delicious. Strong dark fruits again, mainly plum and raisin. Hints of caramel, licorice, malt and alcohol. Once again, the alcohol is present, but perfectly blended with everything else. The finish is very smooth, with almost no alcohol burn which is what I normally get with barley wines.
