Our American-style Barleywine undergoes a three hour boil to intesify the caramel malts and the enormous Pacific Northwest hop charge. The result is a rich, estery brew with toffee notes and citrus hop flavors layered throughout. Enjoy this brew fresh today or lay it down for aging to see how the flavors of each vintage evolve.

brnandersen (2452) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2014
65 cl. bottle - 2012 "Vintage" - poured in to a Snifter. Slightly hazy amber colour with orange hues. Sweet aroma with rich caramel malts, resin, oranges, lightly toasted malts - the richness is balanced by grapefruit and citrus hops. Some alcohol. Taste is sweet - and well balanced - the best feature for this beer. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Long lasting drying finish with rich malts, toast and fruits. Pretty straightforward American Barley Wine.

andriesradu (576) - ROMANIA - AUG 25, 2014
Vintage 2012. Pours dark amber with a big white head. Aroma is heavy sweet with notes of hops, caramel and light alchool. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter, hoppy, dry fruits. A bit different from your usual barleywine.

Lisowczyk (67) - POLAND - AUG 15, 2014
Butelka Barwa mocnej herbaty. Piana solidna i trwała. Cudowny aromat: cytrusy, iglaki, kwiaty, maliny, owoce, kremowe nadzienie waniliowe z wafelków, kiwi. W smaku silne nuty ziołowe, lekkie igły sosnowe i cytrusy, przypalony karmel, owocowy miks. Silna goryczka, dobrze równoważy się z likierową słodyczą. Piwo bardzo gęste, likierowe, mocno rozgrzewające.

Alengrin (3148) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2014 Californian barley wine with a big hop dosis, making it somewhat akin to the famed West Coast IPAs. Yellowish white, regular, stable head, colour an orangey bronze, hazy. Complexely and attractively perfumed aroma of honey, madera, chocolate, sweet tobacco, tonic water, grapefruit peel, pineapple, white pepper, papaja... One of those delightful aromas I could sniff for hours. Exotic fruits in the mouth, citrus peel, soft and very agreeable nutty malts, spicy, peppery and resinous hoppiness in the finish, drying, cloying in a pleasant way, with a warming, brandy-like alcohol effect as any good barley wine should have. Very American in style and very enjoyable; I have no doubts that this has a great ageing potential too.

haukur (1345) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - AUG 12, 2014
Hot, malty aroma with caramels dominating everything. Hot finish, some hops but a malt bomb. Nice take on the style though

ben4321 (4690) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Location: Bomber brought back from TapNY and shared by my buddy Dan, 6/27/14

Aroma: The nose is full of caramel, heavy malty, with some hoppy and boozy notes as well
Appearance: It pours a darker amber color with a creamy beige colored head
Flavor: It tastes much the same, heavy malty, strong caramel, boozy, and a little hop bitterness
Palate: The body is fairly full, with a good bit of heat, and a long and strong finish
Overall Impression: I was actually shocked I hadn’t rated this one before, so I wrote down a review. I have a comfortable respect for this beer, as I think it is well-made, but it doesn’t quite work for me. Still, solid stuff.

Great beer with a burger. A little cloudy and persistent foam. Solid barley flavor and dark bread after taste.

Yorker (1549) - Herning, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2014
65 cl bottle @ home (2012 vintage). Pours dark amber with a little sediment and an off-white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are hops, caramel, sugar, and dried fruit - with a bitter finish.

Flaska delad med @msbrindbergs, tack! mörkröd vätska med stort smutsvitt skum. Doftar dovt men sött av nypon. Stor fyllig smak, Välbalanserad.
