COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At 10.5% alcohol by volume, barley wine style ale is in a class all its own. Intense caramelized flavors create sweetness which is balanced by huge additions of Galena hops. Cascade aromatic hops are added at the end of the boil to compliment this strongest of ales.

Ungstrup (29371) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 23, 2006
A hazy red beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has strong notes of alcohol and berries, while the flavor is very sweet with strong notes of caramel and malt. Not that complex, but still nice.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2006
(Bottle 65 cl) A beautiful, clear, reddish beer with a creamy, off-white head. Vinous, raisiny nose. Full-bodied, notes of caramel and LOTS of raisins in the flavour. And then some rather unusual - for its style - ashy edge. Typical - for a Barleywine - somewhat muddy hop profile. Still pleasant. 220406

fiulijn (14790) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle from CoOp Bellingham
Beautiful amber color with copper hue, small creamy head. Moderate malt and caramel aroma, light fudge. Good malt flavor, some caramel, quite sweet but not syrupy; strong bitterness with nice hop resins and light fruitiness. Bold Barley Wine. The final is expectedly long and powerful.
Straightforward American Barley Wine, very good.

Oakes (12639) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 26, 2005
Murky brown with a caramel head. Malty aroma with figs, plums and canned peaches. Sweet, plummy, burnt raisin flavours. Richly malty, but only slightly chewy. A little tart and vinous in the back - don’t bother aging this one as it may be turning in early.

bu11zeye (11955) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - APR 11, 2010
(22oz bottle) Pours a lightly hazy burnt orange with a spare off-white head. Aroma of caramel, new leather, cherry, florals, toffee, and bread. Flavor of caramel malt, grass, earth, and raisins with a dry, bitter finish.

bhensonb (11140) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 25, 2010
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours copper with a very frothy beige head. Sweet malt aroma. Medium plus body with very mild carbonation. Very little heat. It’s sweet, but there’s some bitter to help balance. Sweet wins though. It is a very tasty ale, and can be quaffed rather than sipped. The aroma becomes strongly caramel, and it is incredibly tasty.

kp (10886) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - AUG 13, 2008
Name: Barleywine
Date: 07/22/2008
Mode: Bottle
Source: Trade

Appearance: clear dark ruby red, wispy beige head,
Aroma: rich sweet fruity aroma with a brown sugar sweetness, lots of dark fruit enhanced by dark caramel,
Flavor: rich malt flavor, dark caramel sweetness, lots of fruity character, a bit too much earthy bitterness adds balance but restrains the ripe fruit, light bitter finish, with time the bitterness starts to fade a bit letting the caramel sweetness grow and bring out more of the fruityness,
Overall: should be great with just a year or two of age,
