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".

Tydlig klasskillnad mellan arom och smak, där smaken dra det längre strået. Aromen rätt svag, smaken däremot....

Fruity and alcohol aroma. Sweet, fruity, yet with just the right flavor. Not too strong or too weak. An aftertaste which lies down long back of the mouth of fruit. But still not as excessively long. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Go big or go home, this brew obviously should have gone home.. A mess of syrupy malts, tired hops and boozy, not even worth to down quickly, another letdown from Mohawk..

Dark amber color, clean, with small head, not persistent. Caramel aroma, some hop, maybe fruity, not convincing (6.5). Good malt and caramel flavor, but the body is too lean, and less sweet than a typical Barley Wine, it’s therefore easier to drink, nevertheless not on style; quite strong bitterness, not overwhelming, with mostly a resiny character, and not much fruits; the alcohol tickles the tongue in the end.
Good, without impressing; balanced and clean.
Probably not suitable for aging; probably better moved to another style (American Strong).

"None see-through" but kinda clear, ruby red liquid. With really small white-ish head. The aroma is quite anonymous but makes me think of barley like Dark Crystal, some sweet fruits and some alcohol. Taste is sweet, a little bitterness (should be 80 IBUs). Nice soft, medium mouth feel. Was expecting something more like Bigfoot or Old Ruffian, but this was still pleasant!

Bottle. Clear amber with a white head. Aroma is malt, raisins, hops. Taste is very sweet with caramel and alcohol. Medium to full body. Sweet warming finish with slight bitterness.

Bottle. Clear deep copper liquid with small off-white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, bread, toffee, dried fruit, raw sugar, alcohol, toast and light fruity yeast esters. Taste is light to medium sweet and medium bitter with notes of toast, alcohol, bread, citrus and toffee. Nice malt base. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Undercarbonated and a bit boozy, could use more hop punch as well. Otherwise, nice.

Smells far more boozy than it tastes. Excellent balance between the sweet raisin notes of the malt and the generous fruity hops. Pleasantly warm alcohol finish. Good!

luktar en aning för mycket spya för att vara behaglig. Smakar dock aningen bättre. Lättdrucken barley wine med fin balans. Möjligen lite för lättdrucken.
