COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2007 Poured a dark ruby-brown; large off white to light brown head. Good aroma, very strong, of pine, citrus, caramel malt and alcohol. This one is definitely a sipper; alcohol not even hidden a bit. Leads to some throat warming. Bitter ending, follows a huge caramel malt beginning. Fruity throughout. I liked it, but would not be able to drink this too often. Just so strong and powerful.

Nate (3648) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2007
On tap at Mad Mex, Robinson. Mild alcoholic estery aroma. Fruity, mild acetone or ethyl acetate, very aromatic and addictive but odd. Fumes, a lot of fumes. Deep brown-amber clear with a bit of haze. Thin tannish head. Heavy body, watery with a bit of silkiness to it. Mild carbonation. Starts with a lot of acetone and ethyl acetate vapors, alcohol and sharp sweetness. Fruity. Quite a mix of chemically sharp compounds, sweet with some molasses and licorice. Good hit of bitterness in the finish, with nice bitter and sweet balances. After is dry and bitter, with estery lingering burn. Harsh, but a nice barley wine.

Arayaga2 (1769) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 23, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2008 Nice dark brown with small off-white head. Aroma is very sweet and citrusy and not unlike an IIPA. Taste is a quite bitter but balanced by equally high residual sweetness, and lingering fruity notes. $5/22oz

carl4beer (522) - Fairfax Station, Virginia, USA - MAR 23, 2007
pours a dark amber with a nice head. has a fresh sweet grassy aroma, very not barley wine... but nice. mouth is sweet and malty with some fuityness that is overtaken with a big floral hop. way over hopped for a barley wine, but i like it. it is like a barley wine for hop heads. pleasantly different

This had a small head.dark murky brown.Aroma was somewhat inviting of sweet caramel and biting green apple tart.It has a heavy body and malt taste.Very much a barley wine.I am not a big barley wine fan,so i didn’t enjoy this beer .The barley wine flavor is very strong.Kind of medicine taste,with a sweet caramel topper.Hard for me to drink this,as it is a heavy tasting beer.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - MAR 15, 2007
Bottled as 2nd Anniversary Ale, number 4884/6000. Murky, opaque mahogany body with a sturdy tan head and sticky patch lace. Aroma is toffee, caramel, burnt brown sugar, and dark fruits. Creamy body is almost full bodied. Taste has some roast, dark fruits, molasses, grapefruit and pine hops and alcohol warming. More like a Belgian strong dark ale with serious hops bittering than a barleywine.

riversideAK (5594) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2007
Aroma of sweet malt, some hoppiness, and some alcohol. A nice mahogany color. Man is this hoppy. Really not too balanced. Some sweet fruitiness, but a ton of hops. This is pretty much an IIPA. The beer has a lot of gumption. It attacks the palate. Fan - fucking - tastic!

Kinz (3258) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2007
Pretty deep amber with a hint of ruby, good head. Aroma of toffee and boiled grapefruit. Flavor was a significant load of toffee malts with a bitter, almost acrid, sour grapefruit hop finish. The individual components weren’t bad in and of themselves, but ultimately the toffee and grapefruit did not hang well with each other. Muddled.

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 2, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a mahogany body with a small creamy beige head. Aroma of pineapple, grapefruit, banana bread, caramel, and spices. Flavor of hops, bready malt, fruitiness, cocoa, and toffee with a somewhat bitter, dry finish.
