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).

split a bottle between two little EKU glasses. another one of theose big ole fluffy pillowtop head deals. dark cloudy sienna color, pecan pie sluiced with jack daniels aroma. hubbie took a sip and said "harsh". i took a sip and said "alcohol". i think this may be the first barley wine i've tried, and could very well be the last.

Procent (62) - 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 0.35 l. Hazy liquid, brown amber color, small beige head. Full body, light carbonation. Heavy sweetness. Strong fruity aroma, taste of overripe fruits, touch of honey. Rich in taste, good, but it’s sugar overdose.

fitwitchik (282) - USA - JUN 24, 2014
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass brown slightly amber with a tan head that didn’t hang very long. Aroma is sweet-strong like golden raisins a touch of booze. Flavor is candied brown sugar with a finish of definite hops. Rich not too thick. A better than average American Barley wine.

Digzis (68) - Nancy, FRANCE - MAY 29, 2014
Couleur Très sombre, entre brun et rouge. Peu de bulles, ce qui n’est pas très étonnant vu la consistance très huileuse de cette bière… Au nez, on a une petite odeur de prune et de chocolat. Le goût est puissant, avec des notes de chocolat, de miel, un peu de réglisse, et du caramel… Un ensemble assez bon et assez complexe, mais il faut aimer les bières bien fortes et bien lourdes…

Extremely clear pour, no lacing, little head. Sweet caramel aroma. Smooth on the palate but very overpowering alcohol taste. Perhaps too strong - distracts from the nice flavors below
