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.

The nose greets you with a sweet, flowery and alcohol aroma. It is a beautiful glowing ruby color. It has a semi-creamy, sweet malt taste. Eventhough, this was one of my first Barley Wines, I just couldn’t get past the OVERLY flowery taste that resides after drinking it. A bit sweet for me, but still very good.

Bottle. Pours a rich brown/red color with a slight head. The aromo is sweet candy with the presence of alcohol. very complex sweet flavor. Caramel hints with a nice malty finish. The alcohol comes through strong in the flavor. The mouthfeel is nice and sweet

Pours very dark in color with an amber hue to it. Low head retention, but this may be typical of the barleywines. I’m new to the barleywine style - this is my second one. Very complex flavor that starts surprisingly smooth with a little fruit and not overly sweet. Then it comes on with the sweetness that I believe is synonymous with barleywines, but not overly sweet. This one will keep me trying barley wines for a while and has restored my interest in the style

An amazing Barleywine beer! has a taste of raisins, brown sugar, toffee with a nice hoppiness and some malt. has an impressive aroma, which is what got me interested in the first place and is a flavor explosion to the palette.

Every year this beer knocks me off my feet. I have yet to find a better Barleywine. Fruity, malty, hoppy, sweet...this beer has it all. I can't say enough about it.

Amber red color with only slight head. Wonderful ale aroma of spices, hops and alcohol. Extremely smooth for a high alcohol content beer. Great beer for any occasion but watch the abv ;)

An enjoyable BarleyWine style. Not too strong. Good choice for a cold winter’s night.

Pour is dark brown/red with small head. Aroma is fruity and a little sweet. Taste starts off smooth then comes in sweet with a little alcohol bite, but nothing overwhelming. A really great beer. Highly recommended.
