BrotherLogic (252) - California, USA - OCT 30, 2011
Tasty - a little thin for the abv but a strong and not overly hoppy barley wine. Elegant rather than in your face. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DandyWolfFloyd (620) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2014
Aroma - oaken booze, alcohol, a definite oily hop quality Appearance - orange body color; cloudy haze, there is some sediment possibly protein breaking down; head sets up rocky about 2 1/2" and the color is Wheat Brown Taste - toffee presence is buried under boozy oak barrel liquor flavor. A musty funk as well Palate body is medium; texture is slightly oily, some vinous liquor, and a little slick; carbonation is average; finish is boozy of oaken barrel liquor charring Not sure if this is actually a Barleywine ~ it’s kind of confusing.

Barreras (849) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - APR 8, 2014
Pours an amber color with a soft fruity aroma. A slight caramel taste with a strong cask taste left on the palate after the swallow. A slight high alcohol flavor that lingers a little but gives a good burn. Overall a good Barley Wine.

williamstome (754) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Orange amber pour, aroma of hops and caramel, flavor of alcohol hops fruit and toffee. Not a bad beer but entirely unclear how it counts as a barleywine...

Garrold (738) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2014
Cask at SIBA Beer X. Lovely looking, clear amber. Bubbly, lasting, white head. Light caramel. Some boozy fruit. A lick of saltiness. Warmth on the palate. One to take time over.

deyholla (5974) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 14, 2014
On tap at Bangers & Lace. Pours a near clear deep amber orange with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a combination of sweet grains, light caramel, grass and pine. Flavor is also a bit hoppy for a Barleywine with pine notes but is balanced by sweet grains and caramel.

unclemike (2180) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Pours a clear golden color with a small off-white head. Fruity malty and slightly hoppy aroma. Sweet smooth warming malty flavor with hints of dark fruit. Sweet warming malty finish with a bitter aftertaste.

Chudwick (1790) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Draft - nose is fruity as in apricots. Sip adds fruit flavor with an almost ripe character. Very fruity for the style. Dangerous for the drinkabilty considering the ABV.

alexsdad06 (4538) - Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Draft at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a hazy dark golden /orange color with a thin off white film. The aroma and flavor have orange citrus, caramel, herbal, lightly toasted bread, mild bitterness. I like more malt sweetness with my barley wines. A bit thin.

Tmoney99 (10090) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Tap. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate fruit, sweet malt and small alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate complex sweet flavor with a medium complex sweet finish of moderate duration. This is was a good soft for style beer.
