The 2010 release of Nemesis is best described by our brewing team as “a dark barley wine that pours black with a subtle mahogany hue. Brewed with 5 malts and no shortage of hops for a pleasantly bitter booming flavor. Roasty and toasty with a multitude of tastes that melts on your tongue”.

Pours a clear, very dark crimson/brown. 1/2 finger foamy tan head with great retention and lacing. Chocolate actually stands out in the smell most prominently; caramel and dark fruits add to the malt flavors. Resiny hops slightly detectable. Sweet dark fruit dominates the flavor; raisins, caramel, prunes, and molasses quite noticeable as well. Not much direct hop flavor, but a subtle balancing bitterness which stops things from getting anywhere near cloying. Thick and syrupy, with light but prickly carbonation.

Pours a very dark brown (almost black). The aroma has dark fruits and heavy candies. The flavor is of sugar, dark fruits, and heavy candy. Overall a very delicous beer

GD50 stream, night 2. 6/28/2015 tasting. This beer is tasting better than it ever has. The hops are taking a backseat without tasting stale. Some oxidation in the nose, but the flavor is sweet molasses and caramels with an assertive bitterness to cut through. Sherry-like oxidation notes & lingering bitterness finish.

Bottle thanks to deyholla! Pours rich deep mahogany, small tan head, decent lacing. Aroma is full of dark sugars, raisin, prune, fig, a touch of pine, chocolate. Flavor is a bit oxidized, medium sweet and medium bitter, chocolate, fig, raisin, cardboard, pine trees. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Pretty hot. Likely a bit past its prime, but still a nice sipper.

slowrunner77 (7884) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 1, 2014
never woulda guessed barleyine. black, super-hopped (100 ibus) and 12%. rich, dark roasted malts and a ton of hops in the flavor and aroma. would acheive pretty good balance except that everything is so in your face (not that there’s anything wrong woth that). overall, a good but not great beer with a lasting chocolate bitter finish."

May 19, 2014 - bottle via trade. Dark brown pour with limited bubbly head and some lacing. Aroma was roasted malt, caramel and some hops. Taste was as advertised - roasty, little bit sweet and a citrus bitter finish. Smooth and easy to drink with a medium to full body.

A- Pours a deep, murky, dark black with little to no head. S- Light maltiness, toasted bread, huge citrus and hop notes. T- Light fruits, citrus up front, large wave of hops followed by a coffee like burnt malt flavor. M- Thick with low carbonation. D- This is definitely more of a big stout than a barleywine. There was a strange aftertaste that didn’t sit quite right with me. Definitely not as drinkable as it could have been.
