Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - MAR 26, 2009
3/26/09 on draft at Brouwers, Seattle, Wa. Aroma is perfumy caramel malt forward with a strong citrus hop balance. Appearance is rich ruby, faintly hazy with a well maintained cream head and heavy lacing. Flavor is complex herbal malt forward with balancing sourness and rich candilike citrus that only helps. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with a citrus tang and low carb texture; low warmth. Overall, not as heavy as expected, but highly drinkable and balanced for a barleywine.

(02/20 Toronado Barleywine Festival) On draft. Small head as they filled up the glass pretty close to the brim. Ruby read color. Not much of an aroma. Cherry-like character in flavor. Hops come out more in the aftaste and palate.

Ibrew2or3 (7260) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Sampled at Toronado 2009 Barleywine Festival. Pours hazy copper to gold with off white head. The aroma has a mild mix of pine hops and dark fruitiness to go along with milder notes of malts and alcohol chemical heat. The taste is bold and nearly harsh with pine hop resiny bitterness moving into modest levels of dark fruity esters. By midway it maintains mostly pine hop bitterness only tempered by mild malt sweetness. Nice American style barleywine.

bb (7133) - Alamo, California, USA - FEB 20, 2009
Draft. Amber beer with a cream colored head. Sweet malt aroma with some earthiness and very light hops. Sweet malt flavor with earth and light citrus hops. Medium bodied. Sweet malt lingers with some light mustiness and hops backing. Well balanced.

12oz bottle from 5000, huge thanks Andre. Clear dark amber color, very little head. Sweet friuty, malty aroma. Very swet flavor, in a good way though. Very easy to drink and very tasty.

Sammy (9190) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2008
Trade with New Hampshire, one of the non-breakingbottles sent to NYC. 2007 edition. Pours medium amber with a bit of foam and minimal head. Good malty barley aroma, though sweet. Medium mouthfeel, nice barleywine not at peak and not young either. Quite drinkable. Bit sugary sweet aftertaste.

12 oz. bottle from a trade at Brawley’s Beverage in Charlotte NC, served in a Duvel Glass. Thanks Mike! Usually not big on barley wines, I find this one to be wonderful. Most of the ones I’ve had tend to be too big, and cloyingly sweet. Although similar to a west coast amber ale, this barely wine is tasty. It is very well balanced an hides the 9.8% alcohol well. Finishes dry with a good bit of residual sweetness but not cloying. No hop bite, smooth, and refreshing. Dangerously drinkable in colder weather, especially for a barely wine.

Bottle in trade courtesy of joepais (pastor). Thanks Joe!!
Pours semi rich amber with a light beige head. Smell is semi hoppy but balanced with nicel lightly sweet maltiness. Taste is fruity, bright and lightly sweet red fruits and a touch of balancing hops and some tea flavors as well. Bit drying, and medium bodied. Overall I thought it wasn’t bad, but didn’t blow me away.

hopdog (9453) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2008
12oz bottle shared courtesy of Josh. Poured a medium and clear amber color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of citrus (oranges), nutty, dark fruits, and caramel. Tastes started out tinny then caramel, dark fruits, oranges, and citrus. Light alcohol in the finish, but overall well hidden.
