Irish Walker is brewed with six different malts and a blend of four classic hops. A long fermentation and cold aging makes Irish Walker a well rounded and complex Barley Wine. Irish Walker exhibits malty sweetness, fruity esters and malty balance. This ale will age well for years to come, or just enjoy now with good company. Cheers!

On tap at Appalachian Vintner. Nice mellow hop aroma on top of malty sweetness. Toast, biscuit, light fruity character. Some oak, vanilla, and brown sugar. Caramel and alcohol. Dark copper brown clear with foamy lacing light tan head. Medium-heavy watery body with medium-low carbonation. Starts sweet with roasted grain, brown sugar, and caramel. Alcohol and light carbonic tang. Nutty bittersweet hop finish with some neutral fruity warming in the after. Nice ale.

On tap at, then from a bomber purchased from Appalachian Vintner. What an interesting brew from Olde Hickory. There is a lot going on here. It seems like some whiskey in involved due to the rich vanilla and oak flavor and aroma on this one. There is a fair amount of roastiness and a rich cherry fruitiness imparted in the flavor. Palate is thick and suitable. This has some typical barley wine notes of molasses and wood, but Olde Hickory has made something much more interesting while maintaining the feel of the style. No hop character is of any consequence. I hate aging beers, but this one might actually be intriguing.

Bomber from Brawley’s. Pours hazy reddish brown with large creamy light tan head. Aromas of caramel, toffee, english hops, figs, and dark malts. Flavors of caramel, toffee, dark fruits, and dark malts. Fair amount of hop bitterness and some booze. Bit of chocolate there as well. Finishes warm and bitter. Nice malty english style barley wine. Carbonation and mouthfeel are fine. Could use a little bit more sweetness.

Straight forward barleywine, so good... Pours a clear medium copper, good carbonation... Nose of hops with some whopper malt, sweet, this would be unreal barrel-aged... Taste is great, smooth, so drinkable. Kept going back for this.
