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).

Aggy360 (115) - Anchorage/ Vista,CA, Alaska, USA - AUG 18, 2009
Pours a clear dark copper/amber with a thin tight off-white head. Bourbon, licorice, toffee, and malt aroma. Taste is strong dark fruit, toffee, sweet malt, and light hops. This has a smooth and creamy mouthfeel with light carbonation and light hop bitterness. There is a low alcohol warmth on the finish. A good take on an English-style Barleywine.

HopsformyHips (113) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - NOV 30, 2004
Little to no head on top of an opaque orangy brown pour...butterscotch aroma with some crisp fruity notes. it was bitter and astringint. It got syrupy sweet as it warmed. There is a lot to it, but just a little too much. There is not much tantellizing subtlety to this one.

japi (112) - Kisvárda, HUNGARY - 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.

Not my thing. Nice dark color but had way to much of a kick even for me ( i enjoy the hops ).

pours very dark brown, mahogany color. I got no head outta this one, so no real lacing to speak of either. BIG malty taste with this one, a little bit sweet, not sure if i could drink more than 2 or 3 for that reason. Has just enough hops to balance out the malt just a bit, but is not bitter whatsoever. more i drink it the sweeter it seems to get. not sickening sweet just yet, but im thinkin maybe i could now only drink one of these bad boys at a time. Alcohol is also hidden very well in this one.

Elizavyeta (110) - Minnesota, USA - APR 14, 2008
Deep amber in color with a wispy white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma has strong mineral notes punctuated by that of pineapple, butterscotch, and coconut. The actual flavor is remarkably intense with sweet, toasty notes giving way to a long, slightly bitter finish smacking of bittersweet chocolate, tart apple, and toasted malt. Have for dessert along a slice of peach pie and vanilla bean ice cream.

DonBirnam (108) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 29, 2009
Looks deep copper-red. Aroma is syrupy and dark-fruit, cherry and plum. Flavour is dry malt and a bit of hop, with a long sweetish, dark fruity finish. Smooth in the mouth.

bierslaaf (105) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - FEB 1, 2010
Pours hazy orange with small diminishing head with no lacing. Sweet fruity aroma with distinct malt notes and some alcohol. Full body with minimal carbonation. Taste of malt and fruit, no distinguishable hop but surprisingly bitter in taste and finish.
