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: JAN 7, 2008 Cloudy brown pour with a thin light brown head. Good aroma of hops and caramel malt. The flavor is solid with its sturdy caramel malt and resinous hops, it finishes with bitterness. The body is full with a liquorous texture and medium carbonation. Very well done and enjoyable.

Perfumey floral, aroma,all from esters, you can also detect a sugary sweetness in the nose, taste is a carmelly smooth sweetnesswith a big hop bitter finish almost excessive, wheat or rye slightly detectable, touch of toffee and hot alcohol. Taste was great,but the finish detracts.Thanks Kingpin

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2011 On tap at the Mad Mex. Smells like root beer and cotton candy. This is not yer typical barley wine aroma. The pour is light brown with a rootbeer head that matches the smell. Very strong alky flavor impact. You ceratinly know this is a barleywine when you taste it. The alky content is not hidden and you know this is above 10%. Very little carbonation, flat. Finish is back of your throat medicinal qualities with a bitterness that hangs on your uvula. Lingers and lasts for a while after you are finished drinken the last sip. Difficult. I am not a barleywine lover or expert but this is probably one of the better tasting ones I’ve had. IMHO much better than Laggy Brown Shugga and Bell’s Wheat Love.

Bottle. Burgundy red and brown colored body. Fresh hop and oak nose with some plum and port scents. Frothy and thick, spicy and peppery, flavors of dark fruit such as plums. Dose of yeast in the finish. Really reminds me of Bigfoot.

thin creamy light tan head, hazy dark scarlet-black body and lighter ruby at the edges. aroma is sweet vinuous malt, dried berry? vanilla, and sweet bourbon. flavor is vinuous malt, toffee too. gets a little hot, and carbonation perks up the heat a bit more. fruityness goes to bitter citrus. finish becomes hoppy and bitter.

This is a good Barley Wine. Pine Hop, malty, and earthy flavors. Finishes thick and chewy.

Thanks to awaisanen for the trade. Pours a deep translucent ruby red amber with a large creamy tan head that sustained and left lots of lacing down the side of the glass. Aroma had loads of crystal malt, some dark fruits, fresh citrus hops with hints of vanilla and toasted bready malts. Flavor was up front caramel/toffee malt quickly followed by a moderate hop bitterness. Hop flavors of pine and grapefruit. Also picking up some dark fruits rather dry and no cloying sweetness like you would tend to get with some Barley Wines. A nice hoppy West Coast version of this monster of a beer.

Clear, deep copper appearance with a large tan head and good lacing. Aroma is a blend of caramel malts and resinous hops. Full bodied mouthfeel with bready flavors interlaced with a sharp citrus hop taste. Dry, bitter, earthy finish

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - MAR 26, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2007 Bottle. Aroma of piney hops and some sweet malt. The malt dominates the flavor and leaves a peppery aftertaste along with the hop bitter aftertaste. Lots of throat warming, feels like more than 10%.

alexanderj (3486) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAR 26, 2007
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.
