COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Luxuriously rich in character, this warming winter ale delivers over 10% alcohol in an oh-so-seductive manner. Deliciously fruity flavors lie under a bracing hop nose.

Poured from a bomber into brandy glass. Light golden brown appearance. Flavor was classic american style barleywine. Noticeable hops, but not overdone like some. Large malt character with toffee chewiness and a good mouthfeel. Very solid beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from notes. Loved this stuff being year round out here. Just like Bourbon County in 2008 and drinking bottles of it in a cemetery while watching movies in LA. Pours a deep brown to tan. Aroma of barley chaff and booze. Taste is boozy IPA with some orange in there.

Amber body white head. Hoppy aroma for a a barley wine also dried fruit. This comparison won't mean anything to most of you but it tastes like last years demeters harvest not third years. A hoppy barley wine. Nice.

Deep red-brown, no head. Roasted nuts, grain, some hints of pine. Both sweet, caramel and bitter quite quickly. Fairly present alcohol, heavier body. Quite good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bbbeer (586) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Dark red-brown, small tan head. Aroma brown sugar/caramel, piney hops. Full body. Alcohol is there but more of a warming presence than interfering with the flavor. Up front sweet malty flavors, molasses, finish is fairly bitter and hoppy,

Danyel (735) - Colorado, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours brown, lots of red hues with off-white head. Smells like lots of barley, sweet. Tastes rich, bitter for a barleywine, interesting. Don’t think it’s that great.
