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).

lembeek (143) - ITALY - OCT 13, 2013
Rosso-ambrato, con schiuma non molto persistente. Aroma di malto, caramello, vino passito. Nel palato dolce, oleosa, equilibrata.

7oz bottle, dark amber with a thin off-white head. Sweet, fruity with a mild hop taste. A decent barley wine.

bmanning (142) - Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Pours dark brown with a tiny tan head (high alchohol content). Very weak malty aroma of caramel and raisin. Flavor is better - nice balance of sweet malt with bitter hops, with notes of coffee, molasses, figs, and almonds. Lacks complexity of the Belgian barley wines however, and it is fairly thin on the palate.

A reddish brown pour. Taste is sweet, alcohol, caramel, malt and fruits...missing some hops. Okay Barley Wine.

mecafilo (141) - Perugia, ITALY - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle @ home. Pours with a very dark red colour, small medium lasting off-white head. Aroma is medium to heavy malty, with complex notes of caramel, fruit, nuts, and softly hoppy. Taste is heavy sweet, soft bitter. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation.

Quiver (140) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - DEC 15, 2005
A very nice barley wine on tap. dark mahogony brown. nice frothy tan head. You can taste the alcohol a little... but what do you expect from a barley wine. Full of flavor, but well balanced. Sweet smooth, a little hops for balance, and notes of roasted coffee.

TheBeerNinja (137) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 1, 2006
Pours a deep reddish brown. With little to no head. Nose is very fruity with a pleasant bannana aroma with a spicey hop punch. Flavor is again fruity with more bannana and a mild hop bitterness. Not overwhelming, a very mild barley wine.

jonnabrix (137) - Newberrytown, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2006
Poured from a vintage 2003B bottle, this is a deep, dark amber color, pretty thick and syrupy coming from the bottle. The aroma was like wine: with grape/raisin and alcohol most noticeable. The flavor starts with some hoppy bitterness followed by fruity and wine tastes, and finishes with some nice alcohol warmth. Enjoyable.

japi (135) - Neubrandenburg, GERMANY - JUL 1, 2012
A dark amber coloured beer with a thin, off-white head, that mostly disappeared. The aroma is fruity, dark dried fuity, malty - like bread, with hint of cascade hop’s citrus aromas and dark sugar. The taste is very sweet. The texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
