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”.

A really smooth barley wine. Just enough hops to mitigate the malty and overt alcohol flavor that hampers most barley wines.

This was a beauty. This beer was almost six years old when we enjoyed it. Very breads and oh so tasty. Thanks to a good friend for cracking this beauty.

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.

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."

Bottle. Brown pour with some head. Some malty, and reminiscence of hop aromas. Sweet malt, oxidation, spice and dry flavors.

ryanfolty (2017) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2014
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.

Lothore (585) - California, USA - MAR 29, 2014
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.

alobar (3017) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Pours a dark brown color with no head. Aroma of vanilla, toffee, oak, and dark fruit. Vanilla, toffee flavors with raisin, oak, and toasted malt. Four year old bottle and no hint of alcohol. Impressive.

jgb9348 (5010) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Ridiculously deep dark brown body with a non-existent tan and oily head. Aroma of strong alcohol, nuts, earth, pit fruit, oak, vanilla and quite a bit of toffee - deep and very strong. Full-bodied; Pungent and showing a ton of alcohol and warmth with the roasted malt, chocolate, pit fruits and especially oak flavours really coming out. Aftertaste shows a nice earthiness with a super complex finish having the roasted malt, chocolate, alcohol, pit fruits, oak, toffee and nuts all a part of the mix. Overall, a super pungent and complex beer with a great flavour profile and even better richness throughout. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Norm’s in Vienna, Virginia on 05-March-2011 sampled at home in Washington on the day of the closing ceremonies for the Olympics to celebrate Team USA in Sochi during the past four years. 2010 Vintage // Purchased in 2011 // Drank in 2014
