Bottled on 06/04... Poured a dark crimson with a white bubbly head and light lacing. Musty fruitiness, apples and sweet malts in the aroma. Roasty, sweet malts, nuts, fruits, and a little pepper in the taste. The heartburn reminded me there was a little alcohol here, but not much. This was not a very complex barleywine.

Light caramel malt aroma. Dark amber-brown with two finger tan head that recedes to a fine cover. Bitter sweet chocolate with light roastiness. Tangy raisin towards the finish. Some cardboard-like oxidation noticeable. Body is a bit light for style. Mouthfeel fairly simple. Overall, itís really a bit plain but not bad. Bottle.

I guess Iím out of step him. Dark brown small head. Aroma is some what similiar to an English old ale, but will some chocolate. Flavor is chocolate, with twig like hops, slightly dry and bitter finish. As a barleywine it is different, but enjoyable never the less. Thanks, DirtyMike

Dark orange to brown. Wood apple nose. Apple again in the taste. Not as complex or flavorful as expected. No alcohol taste at all.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2004
Pours a brownish/mohogany color with an off-white head. Kind of a hoppy/yeasty smell. Nothing like any barleywine I've had. Taste like a yeasty pale. Good beer, mediocre barleywine.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - FEB 16, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2005 Not strongly hopped enough for a Barley Wine although it could be called a srong ale and do well. Other raters have mentioned its "watery" flaovor and I agree. An OK beer.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2005 Brewer said this stuff is brewed in Morrisville, VT in a 7 barrel system. He thought it very important to mention to me twice, so here it is. Also fair to mention there are 6 types of malt. I know I donít care. I do know I didnít like it. Maybe use less types of malt and more quality ingredients. Taste more like a brown ale.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2004 Bottled on 3/31/04, drank on 5/28/04 Ruby brown color, spicy hops nose that gives way to sweet malts. Then it falls apart. Weak bodied and watery for a barleywine, watery taste too. This is more like a brown ale than a barleywine.

Metallic flavor throughout. Start is chocolatey and bitter. This persists throughout. This is not a barleywine. Tastes more like a porter/stout.
