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).

Dedollewaitor (15230) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2007
Bottle says "vintage??" Amber brown with fast disappearing white head. Aroma is sweet sugar, malts, hops, bread & cookies. Sweet spicy warm, sticky & a bit alcohol burning. However alcohol is well hidden in the flavor. Nice lacings. Very well balanced. Complex barley wine & still easy drinkable. Wauw!

Theis (14937) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2007
Bottle at home. Dark dark red/brown - small offwhite head. Aroma: Brown sugar, syrup, raisins, dried dark fruits, light hoppy bitterness, grassy. Taste: Barley, sweetness, brown sugar, dark bread, citrus, light woody. Nice - not much obvious alcohol just a light alcho-burn !!

MiP (14723) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2009
Bottle. Good caramelly sugar aroma, some alcohol, hint of grassy hops. Deep dark red/brown with small floaties. The flavour is very sweet, caramelly, slightly roasted. Slightly rough finish, probably both from alcohol and hops, but good. Too sweet, though.

Oakes (14669) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 7, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2003 Completely muddled. Terrible structure problems, as alcohol, green apples and poorly extracted malts compete for attention. And where are the hops? Finishes like a durian smells.

bhensonb (13510) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 10, 2007
Labeled 2006B. Aroma of malt and chocolate - I think there really was a light wiff of licorice when the cap came off. No head. Brownish color. Starts dried plum and raisin. It’s malty sweetish, and has a firm mouthfeel. Hop is very light. The alcohol warms the palate, and the throat, and below. As it warms, there does seem to be pear, probably not apple.The mouth sensations do seem to turn a bit unpleasant, if one quits sipping. Sort of like heated banana. This is pretty complex.

Tmoney99 (12987) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2007
Bottle. Poured hazy brown color with an average off-white frothy head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate spicy malty and alcohol aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Medium sweet spicy flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.
