"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".

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2015 The aroma is strong and tangy with citrus, caramel and a bit of coffee in it. The palate is well balanced. The beer has a good body with flavors of mainly wood, hops and something simply described as "flowers". The finish has some metallic bitterness in itself, but it probably depends on the alcohol content. For being the first barley wine I have drunk it was good ... really, really good.

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?

Bottle. Pours a deep orange-amber clear body with a small off-white head. Nose is red fruits, honey, biscuits, muscovado sugars and hints of caramel, pineapple and bready malt tones. Taste is sweet red berries, caramel, dark malts, muscovado sugar, mild cinnamon and hints of nuts and toffee. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Quite enjoyable and rather original barley wine with a pleasant fruity touch; good stuff from Mohawk.
