Sly Fox’s Barleywine is big and satisfying, made with British Pale and Crystal malts and four varieties of hops. Panacea is full bodied, with an intense hop flavor balanced with a ton of malt and clearly defined alcohol warmth.

On tap at the Blind Tiger in NYC. Poured a deep orangey brown, ok head for the abv, even some lacing on the way down. The aroma was fruity, grapes, sweet malts. The flavor was white grapey fruity, caramel, candy, rich, alcohol a little sharp, yet the zing finish was somewhat balancing to the sweet malts. The mouthfeel was full, a touch sticky sweet, not bad, though.

Pours a transparent reddish color with copper tones and a slightly off white head. The nose has lots of sugar, caramel and some light citric hop notes. The flavor has burnt caramel malts, lots of sugar, a resigny oily hop and light citric note. Full bodied and syrupy, a touch oily and a bit off carbonation. Has some balnace and is drinkable but overly sweet and a few unpleasantries.

italarican (1543) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - JUL 9, 2009
Pours a dark bronze with moderate off-white head. Aroma of caramel and hops. Some initial sweetness of caramel and malt turn to a fruity hoppy finish. Slight alcohol rush at the end. I don’t know. I definitely could drink this, but I think my description is more exciting than the beer itself.
