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.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2005 Sometimes I get my barleywines mixed up from the past because I could swear this had some hop character in the past, but I could be wrong. Caramel malts and alcohol are out front with the alcohol being a bit strong for me. A run of the mill barley-wine that I can not figure why it is a top 50 beer. Very average IMO.

nice lemon-grass in the nose and flavor. bright, lively, piney, solid barely wine. malty sweetness followed by citrus hop finish.

Bottle. The first word that came to mind after I had a sip was ’wow!’ It is a dark amber beer with a malty taste. The first sip can take you back. The 10.5% alcohol was not noticable, which could be a problem if you do not read the label before drinking! A good, hearty beer but not something I would try during the warmer months. Cheers

Decided effervescent, this positively scarlet ale has a deep aroma of molasses, nutmeg, and butterscotch. Flavor itself has an absolute "zip" that hits the sides of the taste buds and offers a long, gentle finish with toasty, cinnamon notes and hints of citrus, pear, burnt coffee. Ideal as a sipping barley wine, a braised pork dish with dill potatoes would really hit the spot.

bottled dec 06. Aroma of oranges and grapefruit. nice two finger head that subsides to a thick lace. soft mouthfeel. deep amber color. Very nice, mellow malt flavor with a very nice alcohol warmth. Overall, a great, great barleywine. Perfect to savor at the end of the night. I bet this is amazing aged for a few years

This beer is named appropiatly. The alcohol is noticable but not overwhelming. Aroma is a sweet, fruity nose. Taste is lightly malty and fruity sweet. This is a excellent Barley wine.

Big big big flavors happening here in a very good beer. 22oz bottle shared with friends poured into 7oz glasses. Lively carbonation, great lacing. Bitter and earthy hops, caramel and fruit.

Deep orange, almost red color with off-white head. Sweet malty aroma woth some hop spicyness. Lots of malt an hops with a slightly bitter, warming aftertaste. Wonderfully balanced. This is a great one.

This is my favorite of this style. Deep amber, sweet malty. Enough hops to satisfy. DELICIOUS! Victory does it again!
