UPDATED: SEP 14, 2006 Hazy orange amber, small lasting tan head.Alcoholic butterscotch nose.Taste is mostly alcohol and butterscotch, lots of hops. Thin and lacks body. The hoppiest,thinnest barleywine I have ever had. Don’t see what all the fuss is, the alcohol kills all the other tastes.6,3,5,2,11 Rerate Sept 14/06: Tap at the Archer. Wow what a difference!!.Hazy amber,lasting beige head.Toffee,brown sugar nose.Well blended and complex molasses.brown sugar flavor, decently hopped,with medium alcohol heat

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2006
Poured a hazy deep dark red brown color with a nice amount of froathy white head. Aroma is sweet caramel, pine, alcohol, and some citrus. Flavor is very very malty and sweet, almost syrupy, then swtiches quickly to a sharp citric abrasive hop finish. Overall, a nice cold night warmer upper.

Wonderfully aromatic and sweet essence coming off of this on the pour. It is thick, syrupy, and sticky sweet. There is some alcohol present, but then again, it’s over 11%, so it should be! Deep dark red in colour, nicely different than a golden colour from other barley wines.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - APR 26, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2011 Bottle 2006. Pours a deep amber with a small off-white head that quickly fades. Aroma is loads of sweet caramels, cookie dough and toffee, tons of pine and a heathy dose of alcohol. The flavor is very sweet and very bitter, lots of piney hops and caramel. Very warm and bitter finish. Mouthfeel is big and chewy.

22-oz bottle, Early Spring 2006 release. Pours clean copper and ruby with virtually no head. Aroma is caramel and maple malt (cookie), orange citrus and pine hops and an alcohol nose. Moderately sweet sugary malt, moderately bitter hops and medium acidity, piney and lingering hops. Medium bodied and warm, clean palate.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 24, 2006
Pours an orange body with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel and citrus with a touch of spice and alcohol. Flavour is full of malt and darker fruits with a sweetness to it. Finishes with the citrus and hops coming in for the finale.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 23, 2006
22oz bottle. Clear and ruby hue. Minimal white head. Sweet cinnamon nose. Syrupy. Full and lively. Smokey and dry with a slight alcohol nose. Flavors or notes of port, chocolate/cocoa, caramel, spices, piney hops and prunes. Sticky sweet with a cola like flavor and palate. Malt notes are sweet and pruny. Hops develope a citrus note to the finish. Fantastic! Prime example of a Barley Wine. Caramel sticky sweet with a ton of fruity notes.
