Pours a brilliant orange brown hue with a one inch head. Aromas of caramel and fruity hops. Tastes very rich with caramel, fruit, citrus, and chocolate. A really interesting dessert beer.

Good barley wine. Heavy malt aroma and taste, but not overwhelming like others. Balanced with dark fruits, toasty bread, and slight hop bitterness. Good amount of lacing on glass and is dark brown in color with a tan fluffy head. Creamy mouthful. Would recommend to others.

This 22oz. beauty was gifted to me from Mike J. @ Wine World(Thanks Mike!) :D Bottled 4/6/10. Nice woft of fresh hoppage after the first crack. Mmm those malts. Dark rich chocolaty a tad of bottle cap(metallic) in the nose. Nice hops. So far this ale has held up excellent. A super fresh Moufy is what I’m after. What a wonderful barleywine, unique and impressive.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a very dark amber with little head. The aroma is not very exciting, slightly on the hoppy side. The flavor is outstanding, just a really good mellow beer with a nice mix of hops and malt that seems to be a perfect balance. The 9% alcohol is not overpowering. For as large a beer as this is, it is very easy to drink. An excellent barleywine.

Pours dark amber with a light ring for a head. Aroma is sweet caramel, figs, licorice and vanilla. Flavor has a bit left over hop bitterness, vanilla, caramel malts and hints of figs. Light carbonation and light bodied. Alright barlywine.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear brown pour with a tan head. Big aroma - strong hops presence, and strong sugary/honey component. Hoppy flavor on top of a strong sugary base and also bit of dark fruit (this has more hops than I’m used to in a barley wine). Bitter finish with a much fainter amount of sugar. Light bodied and lightly carbonated mouthfeel. Good beer, but there are other barley wine style beers that I would recommend before this one.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark reddish brown with medium khaki head. The aroma is sweet malt, caramel, spicy, floral, and slightly fruity. The taste is really well balanced between malt and hops with a really nice firm hop bitterness. This is a quite enjoyable barley wine.

4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark red, coppery pour with a thick tan head that looks more dense than fluffy. Nice lacing. Not much of an aroma. Some hops, caramel, dark fruit. Full body with a creamy, oily texture. Very sweet and malty. Definitely getting some toffee, figs, even a bit of chocolate. Very mellow hop character that adds a touch of balance. I havent had many barley wines but this is excellent. I cant wait to go back to the brewery and grab another one to cellar!
