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".

"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!

MrHangover (3305) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy light brownish colored beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma is very hoppy, some grapefruits, loads of malts, sugars, dark fruits and a touch of boozyness. Flavor is quite bitter and quite sweet. A typical example of an American Barleywine, with influences of both hops and malts. The aftertaste is quite sweet, boozy and fruity. Starts off fairly prickly and bitter. Nice in balance. Carbonation is low in this one, yet full bodied. Good stuff!!

Signar (1) - SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2015 does not count
Got this from Systembolaget, Sweden, in Dec 2013. Black with very small head and practically no bubbles. Fantastic smell, almost impossible to describe, caramel, sweet, raisins and phenol in a dark mild and amazing blend. A hint of resin and herbs, Taste is complex and well mixed, sweet in fine concert with bitterness, dry fruit, caramel, liquorice root and a mild tone of alcohol. Round and full body, very well balanced and almost mild. Finish is very long with a extremely fine balance between bitterness and sweet alchohol. Amazingly hard to fully understand, analyze and describe. Fantasy trigging. A very good Barley Wine. I kept this bottle in my beer cellar for more than two years - and it was worth every day of waiting. Why didn’t I save a few more bottles?

_angst_ (3648) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours dark amber with a small frothy goldenish beige head that leaves a small spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty and slightly fruity with caramel, sweet dark bread, cereal, raisins, dates, mango, dried papaya, resinous wood, moist soil, pine needles, orange zest and hints of alcohol. Taste is sweet, bitter, slightly fruity, slightly earthy and tiny boozy with caramel, sweet dark bread, golden syrup, honey, grapefruit rinds, orange zest, dried tropical fruits, resinous wood, pine needles, moist soil, liquorice root and hints of burning alcohol. Mouthfeel is round, sticky, tiny astringent, slightly boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet, bitter, slightly fruity and slightly earthy with caramel, sweet dark bread, honey, resinous wood, pine needles, grapefruit rinds, raisins, dried tropical fruits, moist soil and alcohol. Very nice American Barley Wine. Held on to my bottle for about 6 months so it’s showing some pleasant signs of oxidation. Would have loved seeing this forgotten for about a year in a bourbon barrel.

Hopmaestro (657) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2014
The aroma is quite heavy and thick from sweet malts, hops and dried fruits. The flavor follows the aroma but adds some notes of butterscotch, plums, caramel leading into a alcoholic tickle on the tongue. The aftermath is warming and pleasant. It’s not the best barley wine around, but it sure is decent and well balanced. Easy to drink if you are kinda new to the style.

BiffNilsson (270) - Perstorp, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2014
Rödbrun vätska med kraftfull bege skumkrona. Kronan sjunker ganska snabbt och lämnar mycket rester. Doften är kraftig med viss syra. Doft av körsbär och obehandlad malt. Smaken är syrlig och frisk med balanserad beska. Efterbeskan är långlivad och syrligheten lever kvar länge. Svårt att tro att alkoholen ligger närmare 12%. En trevlig barley wine.
