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 (5360) - 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 (2416) - 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 (3344) - 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 (1747) - 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.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2006
Clear red-orange / amber body. Thin big bubbled off-white head. Dry cheap caramel, thin hops, alcohol, some oily automobile aroma. Flavor is interesting... dry sweet pine, odd things too. Bitter oil.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2006
light copper color w/ a small tan head thin lacing. Smell is pretty lazy a bit musty raisens carmel, canned plum liked the components but not the sum. Palate is fairly average some ok coating. Flavor is a very dry grassy/piney hop w/ some artificial carmel flavors dark fruits w/ some alcoholic notes showing through in the finish. I wasn’t a fan.

blackmurder (236) - Whitaker, Oregon, USA - JUL 25, 2006
A nice one for the price, but not too tasty in the summer. Pours a hazy amber with hues or maroon. Smells of muscat grapes, raisins, and figs. A very mellow barleywine flavor with a thick mouthfeel that clings to your tongue. Great for the price.

IrishBoy (3958) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Bottle a gift from Odeed! Thanks Jacob! Nose of caramel and dark fruit, mixed with some malt; transparent rust color, with a ring of beige bubbles around on side of the glass; flavor shows the caramelmalt and fruit, but also a lot of hops. It fades into a nice hoppy bitter finish with a little alcohol burn.
