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).

Koelschtrinker (9996) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 25, 2011
Süßer und tiefgründiger Malzantrunk mit nur leichten Röstnoten. Die Süße wird zum Mittelteil hin zuckrig, der Alkohol schmeckbar, das Malz aber nur wenig intensiver. Die Süße hält an, zum Ende wirkt das Bier unausgewogen. Insgesamt aber dennoch gut. 6/11/11/9/9/10

bierkoning (9826) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 1, 2008
Grassy hops with hints of butter and nutmeg in the aroma. Malty, somewhat buttery flavor, dry and alcoholic, with brandy notes and grassy hops, especially in the aftertaste. Not too bad, but a bit too alcoholic to be well balanced.
