Pailhead (6426) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - SEP 25, 2006
Bottle: Courtesy of DarkElf via trade. Aroma is very weak. Caramel, light fruit, and muted citrus and flowery hops. Pours a bright transparent with a minimal off-white head. Flavor is very weak and watery. Weak caramel up front followed by a muted flowery and citrus hopped finish with some mild alcohol. Very boring and bland.

DrunkenWeasel (224) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 24, 2006
Pours dark amber with a small white head. Smells of coffe and strongly of caramel and barley. Taste is a smooth barley sweetness with some caramel and coffeee notes, not as intense as some barleywines but nice. Despite being quite alcoholic there is no taste of alcohol and it’s quite easy to drink. Enjoyable beer, not ground breaking but quite nice.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2006
Abit blander flavor for a barley wine, even though its 10% alcohol, its not too noticable, and flavor was middle of the road. Usually takes me at least 1 hour to drink a barley wine, this one took me 15 minutes! Malty, not too much in the way of hops as I was expecting, maybe an older bottle that had mellowed, ok drink, but drank too easy! lol!

SDalkoholic (2359) - Linda Vista, California, USA - AUG 28, 2006
Color is a dark amber copper color with perfect whtie head. Small aroma and based off malt and light hop. A strong delivery of caramel malts and pine hop but they sort of cross cancel each other out and balance it out even though it still gives a jolt of character. The high alochol is well masked but apparent in its effect.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2006
Crisp, clear flavor - it is sweet, filled with raisins and sugar-candy, with slight hints of bitterness. The high alcohol leaves a fairly harsh burn. The body is very thin for a barleywine. No meat to it. It’s OK, but probably I wouldn’t look for this again.

notalush (5732) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2006
Thanks to Odeed for this - man, I hate when brewers filter their barleywines - totally clear, bright red with zero head - aroma of fig, caramel, and a slightly medicinal alcohol smell - very thin on the palate - hints of herbs and spices, subtle hops - light sweetness, with some biscuit and caramel - astringent, phenolic finish - not a lot going on - "middle of the road" is a compliment for this beer.

ABUSEDGOAT (2606) - California, USA - AUG 7, 2006
Poured a deep copper body with a fairly large head, solid lacing. Caramel, citrus and grapefruit in the aroma. Fairly typical American style BW. Slightly sweet finish, light alcohol. Nice one.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2006
Thanks Jason. Pours to a clear glowing amber body. No head. The aroma is leafy and stemy with light malt. The flavor is bitter leafy hops, malt is hard to be found but is lightly caramelly. The palate is moderate, lightly resiny, alcoholic.

DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2006
Bottle shared by Jason. Clear carmel body. Nougat, cracker, spoiled cherry and gin in the nose. Leafy bitter flavor (orangey hops/bitter stem) over moderatley sweet dark caramel malting. Sort of a dark IIPA.
