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.

imaragingbull (569) - Sydney, - DEC 21, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear copper amber with big light tan head and good lace. Aromas of citrus, pine, sweet nutty malts, vanilla, oak and a touch of toast. Medium full body, a touch cloying with bitterness not altogether upfront; nicely balanced with a warming sweetness continuing right through the finish. Burnt toffee, toast and a light piney resinous citrus hop flavour/light bitterness.

jookos (1907) - FINLAND - 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

Tropisk humle i aromen, lite karamell, sötma. Alkoholen skiner igenom lite.

stefannilssons (1446) - SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2014
Det här var helt okej, men jag måste nog erkänna att jag blev lite besviken. Smaken var spretig och lätt spritig med inslag av russin och äpple, kroppen var dock stabil men balansen sken med sin frånvaro.
