3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bought @ Steilacoom Wine and Brew. Pours kinda murky, no head until I glug the beer into the glass. The head fades fast. Malty nose, with sugar too, somewhat reserved. Color is pretty dark for a barley wine. Mouth is flat, oily, sweet with a slight hop midway, and a little harsh. All in all not as good as some but better than many! Bottle may soften with age...

Deep dark fruity aroma, with hints of chocolate and toffee. Dark amber color though clear not cloudy. Initially big taste, malty slighly sweet, oatmeal and fruit. Light on palate interesting aftertones. Absolutely delicious overall. Great by itself would not pair too well with food.

Had this last night at Blind Tiger. This was a delicious treat especially for someone who usually likes ipa's. Can't wait to try another on tap again it's a must-have!

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

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.

Licorice taste. No hop flavor at all. I guess I like hoppy BW’s because I had this after a Hog Heaven from Avery and BIgfoot is my favorite. This one just didnt do it for me. Real malty and dark.

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.
