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.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2006
(Bottle 65 cl) Pours a clear orangey brown with a creamy, yellowish head. Very caramellish nose. Full-bodied with lots of caramel and a vague burned edge. Pehaps a note of vanilla. Marked bitter finish, but it’s a somewhat blurred, not distinct and crisp, hop profile. 220406

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2006
65 cl bottle. Reddish dark amber colour with a weak head. Aroma of caramel, nuts and sweet alcohol too. Very tasty flavour of heavy malt, caramel and with quite much hops at the end. Very nice endeed.

hopscotch (9550) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2006 Bottle... DLD06... Lightly hazy, deep copper ale with a small, fizzy, off-white head. The aroma is perfumey, nutty and fruity. The medium bitter flavor is of both dark and fuzzy fruit, grapefruit rind and alcohol. Full-bodied and creamy with mild carbonation. Lengthy, bitter, dry finish.

tjthresh (1866) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - MAY 2, 2006
Sampled at the Dark Lord/Hampton Inn tasting 06. Pours very dark mahogany. Damn near opaque. Nice lasting khaki head. Big time malt aroma with some floral hops. Some cherryish flavor, but mostly just a booze bomb. There is some nice bitterness. Sturdy, full bodied. Middle of the road.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 23, 2006
A hazy dark amber beer with a nice thick orange head, that leaves slight lazes on the glass. The flavor is sweet with lots of hops and lots of caramel. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of caramel and hops, the hops giving it a good bitter end. Nice, but closer to an Imperial IPA than a Barley Wine IMO.

GG (2326) - NorCal, California, USA - APR 7, 2006
I enjoyed this. The 2nd time I’ve had a Green Flash product and this time it was actually pretty darn good. A nice hoppy, piney aroma, a sweet( albeit thin and watery in the mouth) taste with a nice hoppy citrus bite to it with a mark of alcohol to it. I definitely enjoyed it.

Dough77 (821) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2008 Nice caramel brownish/reddish looking pour with small foamy head. Aroma a nice malty caramely sweet bitter, quite pleasent. And the flavor......Well still caramely and malty, slgiht hops just hanging out in the background. Overall a very chewy nice barleywine thanks to secret santa...or somebody else.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 23, 2006
Tap in tasting “corner” at brewery in Vista, CA: Ruby color, dark, chewy sweet malts. The age is starting to show with some sherry notes and the hops are noticeably fading. Still a bit strong in alcohol too but I think it’s peaking right now. I snagged a bottle of this that I’ll rerate at a later date.
