2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Drank it a couple of days ago (bought a four pack - not sure if that was a good idea right off the bat) so I’m trying to remember much about it. It poured pitch black, ZERO head, and being my first Barley Wine, I’m not sure how to describe it further.

Amber pour into glass. Tastes like a pretty standard barley wine. Pretty good beer, but nothing exceptional.

So I hear that you should let the barley wines age a little bit, but of course I had to try one. Pours dark with a sweet smell. Very rich beer that tastes of fruit and alcohol. Leaves a nice little burn in the chest that is not at all unpleasant. I’m going to wait a little while to try the next one though.

sweat malty aroma. Thick, dark color with dark tan head that fads quickly. Flavor is too sweet ofr mt tastes. Heavy malt that overpowers any other components to the flavor. Good to try, but I would not buy again.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amanzing odor, very unique smell, very pretty reddish color. Sweet flavor, strong alcohol flavor, perhaps too much so. Heavy and fuzzy/bubbly mouth feel.

Pours dark ruby red/brown ish. Little brown-ish/beige head, fell quickly. Moderate lacing in the glass.
Roasted sweet aroma. Not much hop aroma, dried fruits.
Light carbonation. Full, creamy texture. Malt, coffee and alcohol warmth. Medium sweetness. A bit too much alcohol in the aftertaste.

This would be an incredible beer if I were into fruitier maltier beers. It was stuck in what I thought was a four pack of Double Dog, so I figured why not give it a try. Great color dark brownish with a good head that stuck around. Very plummy, fruity taste with a slight hint of grape. I could taste the alchohol in this bad boy. Great mouthfeel very full bodied. I’m a hop head so it missed the mark for me overall.

Bottle--vintage 2007. Dark red pour with thin tan head. Sugary, caramel aroma with slight hop notes. Solid maltiness with toffee flavor. Alcohol adds to aroma about mid-glass. Not overpowering but slight bitterness at finish. Good barleywine style from Flying Dog.
