Bottle from Star Grocery, Berkeley. Pours orange copper with a short orange-tinged beige head and a toffee aroma. There is a complex flavor that includes candi sugar and lots of bitter hopping. An interesting brew.

Thanks Stela for sharing! :) Poured a misty red-amber body with a creamy off white head, small and persistent. Malty, slightly dusty, creamy aroma, dried fruits, just a bit too sharp dustiness here and there, otherwise pleasant. Lovely fruitiness in the taste, apricot, solid bitterness, herbal hoppiness, quite creamy, not cloying, dried fruits / heavy malt mixing with good aroma/bittering hops. Everything’s there but remarkably well balanced/integrating with very few clashes. The heavy maltiness is obvious, but the alcohol is extremely well hidden. Light, slightly bitter finish, bitter hopp aftertaste. Pretty great barleywine.

37,5cl bottle shared by Alexcg. Clear amber with an off-white head. Fairly malty with caramel, herbs, fruits and hints of wood. Fairly sweet with nice bitterness, a bit too much on the sweet side. Decent barley wine.

wzorzec ilości cukru w cukrze i amerykańskich chmieli w barley wine. Bardzo ciężkie oleiste piwo, do długiego delektowania się z szarlotką (nie za słodką) i lodami.
