COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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”.

12 oz bottle multiple times notes and a recently popped bottle. Pours dark brown to black in color with reddish highlights at the edges and a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, some earthy hops, resin, dark fruits, berries, some alcohol young but not as much as the previous year, still drinks pretty nice today.

JPDIPSO (5519) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 11, 2016
Dark brown color with a moderate, fairly stable, dark beige head. Nice lace. Big hops aromas atop a dark rich fruitcake. Citrus and pine mix with dark fruits of fig, dates, dark cherries and berries. There are some liqueur scents rising, mostly I believe from the alcohol. I’m nit picking in that it is a bit too sweet in the aromas, but I do find the aromas very nice with all the fruit scents. Smooth, chewy to stick liquid on the palate. Sweet start with a real malt base. Caramel, marzipan, and light candi lead to A mild bitterness with some pine and citrus. Much less than the aroma suggests. A nice balanced barley wine. Late roasted and toasted malts. Reminds of a brew once brewed in the area - Nocturne Ale by RWS (RIP) or a strong OSA. 6/10

badgerben (4822) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 29, 2016
Deep brown color with a whispy head that quickly vanishes. Very rich aroma of toffee, dark caramel, coffee. Certainly some oxidation. Flavors of toasted brown bread, thick molasses (borderline blackstrap), chestnut, walnut, caramel. Some raisin. Thick body, slightly astringent finish. Not sweet at all. Delicious, and I can’t tell if I let it age a year or two too long, or a few years too early!

onceblind (6914) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Aged 5 years! Deep dark brown with a thin bubbly light beige head. Big boozy brown sugar and oak and earthy dark chocolate on the nose with a touch of caramel and plum. Big huge flavor with robust cocoa, brown sugar, boozy honey and fruity undertones, lots of roast, lots of oak. Big booze and roast and herbal bitterness behind it all.

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.
