For those not familiar with a Barleywine, it is a Strong Ale, originally brewed in England in the nineteenth century but is now brewed worldwide. The name Barleywine basically means that it is a beer as strong as wine. Guaranteed to warm you up on a cold evening! Brewed using premium 2-Row, CaraRed, Crystal, Carafoam, and Wheat malts. We also used Magnum, Cascade, Summit, and CTZ hops. Cheers!

Classic barleywine smell, good sweet, alcohol smell, brownish/gold appearance, one finger head, great sweet/bitter combo taste, almost a honey taste to it. This is a great barley, will taste even better aged.

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 2, 2015
Rich caramel and toffee along with dried red apples and herbal/resiny hop bitterness. Faint burnt sugar and wood along with a slap of fruitcake. Brash aggressive alcohol snaps at the palate and kept this from becoming cloy. Get rid of that Summit character and this would be a 4+ for me... Still a tasty treat, bottled in January of 2014.

JDBaker11058 (1624) - Maryland, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Appearance: clear copper, with a short, fizzy, light tan head. Aroma: caramel, toasted brown bread, fermented honey, vanilla, lemon soap, resin, grapefruit. Taste: sweet caramel malts, fruitcake, raisin, vanilla, brown sugar, light pine, hint of burnt wood. Finish: lasting malty sweetness, with a slightly astringent hop note at the very back. Notes: I’m not a huge barleywine fan, but this was really good. Malt-dominant, and alcohol was very well hidden. Palate was full but not overly thick. Bottle from Sarah for Beerthday 2015.

rosenbergh (8897) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 28, 2015
Draught at the Tenaya Creek, Las Vegas, NV. Clear amber colour with a small white head. Strong dried fruits, fruity sweetness, mild bitterness, sugar and malt in the aroma. Not bad. The flavour is super sweet and strong. Warms a lot... almost burns. Dried fruits, sugar, bitterness, hops and malt. Nice one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

monk191 (1379) - California, USA - MAR 20, 2015
A very nice barleywine. Pours a clear ruby red, with a super thick grey head. Smells of apples, vanilla and caramel. Taste is very smooth and creamy, with lots of cherry, along with vanilla, cinnamon and caramel, with more cherry coming out in the finish. Paired with buffalo chicken pizza, brings out more cherry, barley, vanilla and alcohol. Good stuff.
