Light on the hops. Malty enough, with a funny aftertaste. Still, at 10%, you really can't get angry. Party on.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 25, 2003
A deep brown color with a small frothy tan head. A hop aroma with alcohol and a touch of malts. A nice hop flavor right up front with alcohol and a malt flavor to balance. A full body, a lasting flavor and dry finish. A great beer to compliment my chili.

BeaverBrown (245) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 25, 2003
Brown in color with small tan head. Full bodied with taste of hops. Doesn't taste like a barleywine untill I let it sit for a while then the ETOH was almost overwhelming.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - MAR 10, 2003
Reddish brown, not much foam. Aroma is sweet and fruity with hop overtones. Alcohol is well hidden behind the sweet malts and balanced hops. Substantial body, complex flavors and is very good as it warms.

21iceman40 (1731) - vienna, West Virginia, USA - MAR 6, 2003
A nice deep golden brown color to it. Little head, especially the day after when i left half the pint open all night. A good mix of malts and hops in the aroma with a hint of a black twizzler in it. Lots of malts make up the body of the taste with a good amount of alcohol flavor. Slightly bitter, with hints of caramel and a few fruits and maybe even some spices. A nice barley wine, very big beer, why must almost all barleywines have the word old in the name.

Ernest (6160) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 4, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2008 Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark amber. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel), lightly hoppy (resin, grapefruit), lightly yeasty (dough), with light notes of alcohol and dried mango/papaya. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Full body, syrupy/velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Very simple and faint aroma, not much going on at all. Good flavor balance and mouthfeel, though.

On tap at the 2003 Toronado Barleywine Festival: Somewhat sweet and syrupy. Not bad though. Some bitterness to back it up. A little too sweet. Huge malt backbone in this beer.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 2003
This one pours a slightly cloudy dark amber color with a small, off-white head. It has a nice malty sweet aroma with a touch of floral hops and a hint of licorice. Full bodied, thick, and rich, the flavor very malty with nutty undertones. The finish is balanced between the malty sweetness and hop bitterness and has a slight vanilla aftertaste. The alcohol is well hidden, not showing itself anywhere in the profile of this great beer. This one is very smooth and drinkable, probably one of the most drinkable barley wines I have had. Excellent!

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 13, 2003
amber/copper color with a light beige head. Fruity sweet aroma with a nip of alcohol. Fruity sweet flavor with a nice balance of hops to carry things through. Smooth body and alcohol starts to show. Just balanced and drinkable. An excellent cold night sip and enjoy barleywine.

DrBeer (829) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2003
Red-brown hazy beer. Flowery aroma with alcohol and chocolate tones. Tones of soil and malt. Fresh and hoppy. Malty flavor with alcohol and bitter tones. Full sweet peppery flavor. a bit leafy. Like this one !!!
