COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Go big or go home". Jänkare är kända för att göra allting lite större än andra. Men när det gäller Barley Wine så brukar dom göra "lite mindre" öl än i Europa. Så när Mohawk skulle göra en amerikansk Barley Wine bestämde vi att verkligen gå hela vägen. Det här är en stor öl fullproppad med malt och humle. Precis som det skall vara "The American Way".

pilsnerrogge (2461) - Finspång, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2014
Bottled:
Pours deep amber with a mid sized head. Sweet and malty aroma with hints of toffee, marshmallows and alcohol. Thick and sticky mouth feel. Taste is sweet and has notes of caramel, toffee and alcohol; a little bit too much alcohol I think.

Lilja (1535) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 30, 2014
Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, torkad frukt, russin, alkohol med toner av mjölkchoklad, jord och marsipan. Fruktig, kryddig med tydlig beska. Bra balans, lagom sötma men en aning lätt i kropp och doft.

klas (239) - SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget (30 SEK). Red-brown with nice head. Intense taste with fruit, a bit sweet, a bit bitter and some alcoholic notes. A real warmer aduring winter. Very good! Might get even better if stored.

HULK777 (333) - - JAN 19, 2014
Beautiful beer. Intense pineapple aroma with hints of grapefruit, peach, passionfruit, and caramel. Creamy crown. Sweet taste of pineapple, exotic fruits, peppermint candy cane, light bread, with a modest bittersweet finish.

panacea (54) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JAN 18, 2014
Pours dark brown with subtle white head. Nose is dates, raisins and other sweet dried fruits. It is discrete but perfect for a barley wine in my opinion. Taste is also dried fruits with lingering finish of citrusy hops. For an american barley wine the hopping rate is quite low. In my opinion it is for the better. Body is quite thin also, would like more residual sugars. Still, this is the best barley wine yet from Sweden! I am hoping for more to come since it is my favorite style.

ansalon (1269) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - JAN 18, 2014
Pours medium amber with a low white head. Aroma is caramel, butterscotch, dates, honey. Taste is caramel, toffee, dates, honey, sugared apples. Qute good if a little one-dimensional. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mikeyo1 (149) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JAN 17, 2014
Bottle @ home. Pours copper reddish with a small head, nice lacing of tiny bubbles. Nose is sweet with red fruits, toffee, caramel, raisins & bread. Hints of grape and pine in the background. Soft carbonation and medium body for a barley wine. Sweet taste of caramel, toffee, raisins & grapefruit, hints of vanilla. It finishes drier with lots of bitter citrus that lasts long.

rarbring (1255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JAN 17, 2014
Aroma: Smelling weakly of bread, grape-fruit, pine and vanilla.
Appearance: A clear chestnut colored beer. A off-white head with good lacing and good curtains.
Taste: Tasting bread, grape-fruit, resin and citric peel.
Palate: Medium low carbonation, a coarse texture. A big body with a dry finish.
Overall: Feels very young, a boozed up AIPA. Could be better after some years.
Note: Bottle 330 ml at home. Reviewed 2014-01-17.

omhper (19214) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 11, 2014
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Hazy copper colour, small head. Grapefruit and caramel lures underneath a thick blanket of fine brandy. Sweet with full body and rounded, oily mouthfeel. Heavy, but not overpowering. Good balance of caramelly malt and aromatic hops. Long bitter finish with balanced peppery heat. Flawless, but I miss a soul.
