From a non-barley wine person... Pours and looks great, but is way too malty for my tastes.

12oz bottle shared with mr_h. Reddish brown, reasonable head. Barley malt aroma. Barley sugar flavour. Strong sweet alcohol aftertaste. Not my thing.

2003 - Perhaps I had a bad Bottle, but this beer reaked and tasted of Alcohol. The color was a cherry red. A slight hoppy taste. But, everything was overpowered by the alcohol.

Den var väl sådär. Funkar i brist på annat. Snygg flaska och hyfsat bra pris.

2003 vintage. Deep amber with thin beige head, sweet honeyed aroma with some cooked veggies. Flavor rather ordinary some caramel and almonds with a hot finish. Average to just below average barley wine (IMHO)

Okay, everyone likes this beer but with about 13% alcohol, I can’t get past the high alcohol content. The palate and flavor just does not do it for me!

On tap at the Vintage Estates, nice place. Not much aroma, does not come across as volatile. Color is darker than a lager, more brown or orange in there. Strong, almost like smoother whisky in flavor. Decent carbonation for a barley wine. For 12+ abv, this stuff hides the alky well. Medicinal at times. I think I’m getting dizzy. Finish is somewhat cough medicine linger. One of the smotther barley wines I’ve had.

Bottle (2011) - Where do I start? While I loved the smell, appearance, and mouthfeel of this beer, the powerful taste of sweet syrup just couldn’t be ignored. It is possible that I got a batch that hadn’t been handled properly. Oh, certainly I know that I’m in the minority here, but I know barley wine. I absolutely love Old Foghorn and Bigfoot, but this was freakin’ ridiculously sweet....at the moment of tasting it. Maybe similiar to someone on a salad diet drinking a coke for the first time in months, .... and it tastes so SWEET. I may store this and re-rate after some time. Merci beaucoup.

2012... Pours very nice red with a dissipating tannish head. Aroma of alcohol dominates for me. Other aromas kind of weak. Don’t taste much, kind of disappointing. Will try this one again tomorrow, because something isn’t right with me.

Fin röd färg, men doften är nästan helt borta.
Smaken är lite källaraktig med svaga toner av malt. Aningen oljig och jag får en liten trappist-känsla
Lite besk och torr känns eftersmaken.
