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.

Aroma has some fruit to it, but also earthy hops. Taste is a mix of spices and sweetness with some bitterness. Overall well balanced.

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

Yorker (1110) - 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.

MSBrindbergs (243) - Solna, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2014
Flaska från SB. Delad med broder MrHult. Fantastisk fin dimmig rödbrun vätska med ett bra beige skum. Vet inte hur den skulle kunna se bättre ut. Mycket bra doft av bränd kola. Kraftig smak, en skön bränd sötma som översköljs av en grym beska. Långt bak i munnen ligger den sen kvar och skvalpar en bra stund. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is tense. Has a lot of burned sugar palette but also fruity. Color is caramel.

jookos (1994) - - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle@5p. Mahogany hazy. Sweet malty nose with raisins, plums, earthy hops. Full bodied, sweet, light port- like, but well bitter (doesn’t cloy). Sort of dry bitterness, some oaky vibes, earthy hops. Decent barley wine. Well bitter, bit too well almost. Drinkable.

Writing this based on what I remember from last night's consumption. Nice amber color. Pleasant aroma with a somewhat thick mouth presence and quite tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rarbring (1269) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUN 21, 2014
Aroma: Smelling of sweet bread, apple, vanilla and egg.
Appearance: A hazy chestnut colored beer. A off-white head with good lacing and good curtains.
Taste: Tasting bread, orange marmalade, vanilla and peel.
Palate: Medium carbonation, a soft texture. A big body with a dry finish.
Overall: Very/too young. But promising.
Note: Bottle 650 ml at home. Reviewed 2014-06-21.
