Austinista (11) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Sweet and heavy, but mellow. "Antique" artisan brew feeling. Notes of honey, chamomile, and hay. Autumnal.

Gription79 (2227) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - APR 23, 2013
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber that has been kicking around for a few years. Nose is filled with bread and fruity alcohol. The flavor is fruity, chocolate, buttery(not diacetyl), toffee, some oxidized notes, vinous. Very nice barley wine.

Crispy34 (349) - Texas, USA - APR 18, 2013
Bomber bottle. Aroma is slight barley wine with more carmel malt in it. Appearance is a dark brown with little tan head. Taste is dark for a barely wine. Very earthy. Palate is barely wineish. Overall, a decent beer. Could have had more hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

solidfunk (3567) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 8, 2013
A little underwhelming. Pours cloudy red with some head and lacing. Aroma of booze and malt. Not particularly balanced. Finishes boozy bitter. Syrupy. Bottle at volos.

screigh (440) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Pours a very hazy copper color. Very thin off-white head. Aroma is malty with hints of copper. Sweet and malty gives way to a tartness quickly. Finishes a bit dry with some hop bitterness. Can get a good amount of the alcohol in it too.

jlanning215 (363) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2013
A powerful and delicious barley wine. Full bodied. Deep brown in color. Smells of wet, minerally malts. Sweet yet finishes dry and leaves me wanting another sip. A rich and delicious beer.

So I picked this up for a $1... thatís right, one dollar. Guess the lineup didnít do too well around here, so they were just getting it out the door. I picked up a case, think "how bad could a barley-wine really be?" Man, I should have bought everything they had! A VERY respectable barley-wine that already had 6-8 months of aging on it and was tasting great! Plenty of malt sweetness with a bit of booziness that Iím hoping will fall off with a bit more aging, and lots of dark fruit complexity. Not the best barley-wine Iíve ever had, but itís without a DOUBT the best Iíve had for the price!
