COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ben brewed this ale to mark his 100th batch of homebrew. The beer is rich and malty, with a hint of caramel and plum. Brewed with citrusy American hops and a blend of six varieties of malt, the sweet and dark fruit notes in this beer linger on the palate.”

Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of byaeger. Pours an almost clear amber with an off-white head. Caramellish nose, slightly nutty with some alcohol. Rich body, sweet caramel, somewhat spicy - almost peppery - with only a vaguely oxidized edge. Very subtle bitterness. A very easygoing Barley Wine that will offend no-one. 150812

Clear amber beer with a big off white head. Light palate, a little dry and crispy. Very light malt with a lot of floral things going on. Very mild citrus underneath. Semi dry finish with mild bitter linger. The most floral barleywine I’ve ever had!

bhensonb (11251) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 10, 2010
Bottle from the Natomas BevMo. Pours antique copper with a 4 finger foamy beige/tan head. Rich sweet caramel aroma. Backed by some herby/citrus hop. Full bodied with mildly creamy carbonation. The first impression is roast caramel and darkish fruit. With a bit of time there’s some citrus hop bitter. It seems much more balanced than most barley wines. Let’s hear it for Ben Miller. Heck of an ale.
