lamas (1527) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 23, 2006
22 oz. bottle from "twenty ’aught-6". Pours a cloudy amber with a big khaki head that leaves a little lacing. The aroma leans toward the hoppy side of things. Grapefruits, lemons and some oranges dominate, but there is still some caramel, malts, vanilla and alcohol in the aroma too. A medium, smooth body. The initial taste is quite sweet with plenty of plums, caramel and sugar. Finishes with a decent amount of hoppy bitterness, a little graininess and the SLIGHTEST hint of alcohol.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 20, 2006
Nice ruby body, minimal tan head. Awesome aroma, yeast is pronounced, caramel malts also. Great body, typical taste of a barley wine, nice malt accents, some fruit is evident as well. Green grass in the end, some light straw as well. Very nice.

DiamondD (38) - Sammamish, Washington, USA - MAY 20, 2006
This a nice barley wine. The nose on this one is very complexed as it warms. Reminds be a little of the Lee’s Harvest ales from England. Not to hoppy. A classic barley wine should not be overhopped. Leave that to the IPA’s. This should age well. I have’nt put a review in for a while, yet this one spurred my thoughts.

gputty (456) - Virgina Beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 15, 2006
From bomber. Copper/amber pour with tan head. Caramel malt and brown sugar with some fruits in the nose. Flavor followed with an added dose of sweetness. Not much bitter to speak of. Pretty solid BW.

jrob21 (3163) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 14, 2006
Average light brown head. Clear brown color. Smells of caramel and resin. Tastes of vanilla raising, plum, and prune. Full bodied and sticky texture. Long finish and heavily sweet. Smooth balanced beer.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 9, 2006
Fairly standard viscous amber. Aroma of raisin bread, dates and rich caramel. Subdued hop aromatics. Wholesome, slightly salty malt goodness jibes well with some slightly citrusly hop intonations. Like outerupt noted, this tastes like it has more age on it than it does (I mean that in a good way, not an oxidized sort of way). Enjoyable but not quite outstanding - a little more syrupy than I like my barleywines. Very nice warming finish though.

outerupt (133) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2006
22oz. bottle. 2006 vintage. Nice aroma and a reddish brown aspect. Hops are there but subtle and integrated. The malt stands out with a decent amount sweetness blended with toffee, honey, and tones of toasted multi-grain bread. Clearly benefits from the month in tank as it is much better integrated than others of the style at this early stage. quite nice.
