3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

Bottle in a wine glass at Split thy Skull. Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma of caramel and toffee malts, some light hops, and light bitterness. Flavor sort of watery. Lighter texture than others. Not the best barley wine.

On tap at Global Brew. Pours a dark brown with a thin light tan head. Vinous aroma. Taste is smokey dark roasted malt, dried dark fruit, molasses and a bit of whiskey and hop bitterness. Lots of warmth after the swallow. Strong and assertive, but really good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 11-02-2013 (Bottle) The appearance is a small smooth beige head with a short retention, transparent amber body, extremely fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, pine hops, grassy, and alcohol. The flavor is moderately bitter, pine hops, caramel malt, sweet, and the ABV makes an appearance. The mouthfeel has an alcohol burn on the first taste then is a bit thick and chewy. This beer is medium-full bodied. A sipping beer for sure. It has a very enjoyable flavor and is worth trying. It is a barley wine I would drink again.

Cervesa bastant dolÁa perÚ amb un petit toc llupolitzat que la fa molt interessant.
Cerveza bastante dulce pero con un pequeŮo toque lupulizado que la hace muy interesante.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle. Poured a nice ruby copper color with a pretty off-white head. Aroma was lots of toffee, sweet boozy malts. Bitter hops present, which provides some nice counterbalance to the boozy malt character. Flavor was nice, boozy crystal malts. Good light resin, floral hop character. Went down way too easy for 10%.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle from Vice Versa shared with JF.Aroma : malty a lot, cereals (barley), App : clear copper with red tint with minimal head. Taste and palate : full body, medium high sweetness, finish is really malty and sweet. Overall : don?t think I?ll buy again. Too malty. Too sugary and quite unpleasant aroma.

From a bottle. Pours murky brown, minimal head, malty biscuit aroma, smooth, warming on the palate with some hop punch. Great stuff.

"another big sweet beer from Moylanís. A little on the maltier side, with a thick, soft mouthfeel, this is a good after dinner sipper. Ages well, and itís very nice on tap."

A nice barley wine. Reddish body. Nice sweet malty aroma. Kind of a hoppy element to this considering it's a barley wine. Nice.
