I guess I’m 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.

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.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2004
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 don’t care. I do know I didn’t like it. Maybe use less types of malt and more quality ingredients. Taste more like a brown ale.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 14, 2004
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.

DYCSoccer17 (3547) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 21, 2003
Metallic flavor throughout. Start is chocolatey and bitter. This persists throughout. This is not a barleywine. Tastes more like a porter/stout.

freekyp (1776) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 6, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2007 Dark auburn with a THICK everlasting tan head. Butterscotch, caramel and sweet green apples in nose. Tart candied apple flavor. Though it is a barley wine, it is unusually thin bodied. This is not necessarily a bad thing, however, as it makes it very easily drinkable.

I have to give Matt alot of credit here. In Vermont anything over 8% abv falls under some serious legal stipulation, so making something that resembles a barleytwine under that mark takes some doing. Though it is more of a brown ale it is now one of my house beers. Deep clear brown color with a small head. sweet taste and aroma, but a hint of clensing finish.
