COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At Weyerbacher, we prefer to brew things true to European style guidelines, so our barley wine is definitely on the malty side, without being overly sweet. Notes of date or perhaps fig on the palate follow a pleasurably malty aroma to your taste buds. The finish is warm and fruity, and begs for the next sip.

Deep amber color, slight tan head. Sweet aroma: raisins, dates, brown sugar. Similar flavor, sweet and malty. I agree with ChimayBabe about the alcohol being unleashed as it warms. Just a tad too much burn once it gets to room temp. Other than that it's a fine barleywine.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2009 dark amber with small tan head, raisi & fig with malt roastiness. Great mouth feel not to syrupy or too sweet. Extremely smooth, not overly complex How does this manage such combination of up front olfaction and lingering flavors and still be so thin in the body?

Aspen and suede aroma waft from a gorgeous malty syrup colored brew. Raw flavors of distilled carmelized Golden Delicious apple and raisins, touch of molasses. Overpowering alcohol when warmed to room temperature. Definitely drink this one not much above cellar temp. for the best combination of flavors and aroma.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - SEP 23, 2003
brownish red color,nearly no head but a small lacing was there.The first aroma i get is Juicyfruit gum,malt and fruit.The taste is great with a nice malt in the beginning and then the fruity gum comes in nicely sweet with other fruit tones coming through as well.The after taste is fruity and malty with a nice bitterness coming in at the end.The alcohol stays well hidden for the most part,just barely showing in the taste and coming in at the after taste as a mild burn going down.The feel is slightly syrupy but not to much so.Highly drinkable brew.Thanks Pabobcat for another good brew.

Aurelius (4593) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2003 Good. If I had a criticism worth noting, it would be that this brew is bi-polar -- the sweetness doesn't quite cover the ABV. Malty, bready, some fruit (figs?), nicely done in general. Prunes and alcohol aroma. Good hazy nutbrown beer, decent label.

Another hit for Weyerbacher. I like this one a bit more than Victory's Old Horizontal brandywine ale. This one by comparison is a bit smoother, yet still has that kick in the back of the throat taste thanks to its high ABV. Tasty through and through, and not too heavy, either.

madsberg (10602) - Søborg, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2003
Bottled: Clear amber coloured. Beige lasting head. Malts, fruits, some spices and distinct wine notes in the aroma. Alcahol, malts and a somewhat grainy flavour. Vague. Dosn't last long on the palate. Thanks to Raindog for this beer.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - SEP 17, 2003
Dark Amber color, and a continouos cream bubbly head. Flavor is too sweet for a good barley wine. Not enough of the barley malt flavor, and a tad bit too much sweetness. Regardless, still a damn fine beer, but a seemingl mediocre barley wine.

Another great weyebacher this time from Jsquire. Sweetness in smell and taste, perfectly textured, warmed even well like fruitcake.

JohnC (3004) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - SEP 9, 2003
Appearance: This is a reddish-brown colored ale that is cloudy and has very little head. Aroma: The nose is very malty with lots of alcohol. Mouthfeel: This puppy quickly slides thru your mouth. It doesn't leave a trail Taste: it's a nice, simple straightforward (if there is such a thing) barleywine. It has a nice flavor, but it doesn't try to be over the top. It was enjoyable
