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).

Pours a brownish color with a small off white head. Aroma is of sweet cherry.. Taste is of fresh cherries, roasty and some smokiness. Finish is a bit on the thin side with some stickiness on the palate.

Procent (102) - POLAND - AUG 19, 2014
W aromacie likier, jabłka, rodzynki. Barwa ciemnobursztynowa, piana znikoma. W smaku słodko, jakby syrop, także likier i rodzynki, goryczka niska ku średniej, alkohol wyczuwalny, ale dobrze zbalansowany, nasycenie niskie, pełnia w ustach wysoka. Dobry Barley Wine, po prostu.

Bottle. Pours a muddled, light brown body with a little off-white head. Smells of dark sugars and tart fruits. A flavor of sweet malts with little hop profile, but the alcohol is very present. Thick, yet smooth texture. Not my favorite in the Canis Major series and certainly not the best barley wine.

Rutzicka (102) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 28, 2002
The colour is cloudy brown with few foam. The aroma is fresh and quite fruity, floral. It has a long, pleasant, finishing bitterness.

I am not a Barley Wine drinker and that may be why I am missing it here with this fine brewer’s offering. Strong as heck (a little to strong for any food at the Blake Street) but I will try it alone again.

hammerbeck (101) - Kentucky, USA - DEC 28, 2007
Undrinkable. I’m supposed to stretch this out to 75 characters, but there’s not much else I can say beyond "bad." Nasty, thick, alcholically too hot, acidic.

ChrisJ (100) - Warrenton, Virginia, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Bottle @ home. Pours in dark brown with some red around the edges. Thick head. Strong aroma of caramel, slightly sweet, some alcohol too. The flavor is caramel some hop bitterness, well balanced and moderate. The mouthfeel is medium full with some pronounced warming from the ABV. Good balance creates a nice beer, not as exciting as some but still quality.

gferd (99) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 21, 2006
This beer was good. Better than a lot of B-wines I’ve had, but certainly not the best. Good balance of sweet malts and bitter hops.

Under-age Drinker (96) - Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2009
Amber, burnt wood brown. Banana on the nose, some other fruit, and alcohol. flavor is just off, nothing like a good barley wine should be. Weak

Dark amber brown pour from the bottle. Little to no head. Aroma is fruits up front with raisins, black cherries, and figs.Tastes of spices and sugary sweetness. In the middle is the strong alcohol taste.
