porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - SEP 10, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2010 (Bottle from Garyís Beverage, cellared for 8 mos. after purchase) This is a decent barleywine...Pours dark amber with a small biege head that recedes to the edges. Aroma of candyish malt, some pine and light vanilla. Mouthfeel is fairly smooth, a touch pebbly, a bit sticky, about the normal amount of heft for the style. Light patchy lacing. Flavor of medium-rich candyish malt and light vanilla overlain by medium piney bitterness. Bitterness builds a bit towards finish and provides a bit of a bite at the end. Lightly hot and a nice bit of alcohol warmth. Could stand to be a bit richer but no big flaws. Not the biggest or richest barleywine youíll find but kind of holds its own. UPDATE 12/3/10: Wow, this aged well (based on about 3 years of cellaring). Big malty flavor, a little smoky with a very mellow, rich, warming character although not nearly as complex as a really good b-wine. Subtle notes of chocolate and toffee and any hotness has really toned down. Current rating is an average of the two bottles.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - AUG 12, 2008
12 oz bottle, Limited 2007 Release. Clear copper with a small off white head. Citrus and fleashy fruit nose - orange and peach - with some sweet, syrupy malt and alcohol. A phrase, "maltarded", was coined awhile ago, and it partially applies here. Big, sweet, syrupy malt with a distinct orange hop edge. Thick, syrupy body. It’s very simple, and on a simple level, it works. A barleywine with training wheels.

Haslinger (865) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2008
Sampled at Empire State Brew fest in Syracuse. Malty aroma, great malt taste with some hops mixed in, VERY nicely blended hops and malt. Great finish Would buy again

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Poured a clear copper color with an off-white head. Toffee aroma with light notes of oxidized malt. Some notes of oranges in the malt. There was also a dirty quality to it and even hints of almonds. The flavor was a mix of pine and malt.

beastiefan2k (2524) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - APR 28, 2008
Shared by goldtwins. Pours a completely lucid copper color. Aroma is super-sweet-hard raisin candy. Itís actually your pretty basic strong, filtered to the gills, barleywine. Taste is strong, raisin, and astringent caramel. Itís not necessarily bad, just not interesting and trite. What is worst of all is an AB-like dumb catch phrase on the label; "hand brewed."
12oz bottle, Stone 11th Anniversary tasting glass.

IrishBoy (3883) - Bakersfield, California, USA - APR 5, 2008
12 oz bottle from Porterhouse! Thanks Kevin! Nose is berry, caramel, and alcohol; clear, rusty copper with a small straw head; flavor is sweet strawberry, warm alcohol, and some hop bitterness; finish is alcohol and bitterness; not a great barleywine but a warm flavorful one; would probably be better with some age on it!

LooseCannon (938) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAR 30, 2008
12oz bottle. Pours clear amber in color with very small white head, which does not last long. Aroma is sweet and citrus hops. Taste malt, hops and alcohol with bitter finish. You will feel the alcohol.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 27, 2008
Golden-amber colour. Peachy-malty nose. Hints of pears. A little bit stiff - unbalanced booze. Deep, tasty fruitiness and a hint of caramel malts, but itís a little simplistic.

Courtesy DaCheeseMan. Clear copper color, thin soapy white head. Biscuity malt aroma with a mild earthy hop character. Mild uneventful, mostly malt sweetness, canned fruit cup finish. The start suggests some hop presence, but it never materializes. Alcohol is well-hidden.

TheCheeseman strikes again! Pours a clear copper amber, with a tiny little white head. Smells very syrupy and malty. Maybe a touch of some apple in there, but mostly sweet smelling. The flavor is quite sweet as well, but lacking a significant little bite you usually get from barley wines. You get light alcohol heat from the 9.8% mostly in the finish, but wasnt stinging on the palate. Alot of boring caramel malts and apple citrus like you usually get, but this beer is lacking on something.
