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.

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 (10781) - 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

Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - SEP 5, 2003
Pours a cloudy, red/brown with very little if any head. Smells of Raisins, figs, spice with a background of alcohol--even brandy. Taste a little thin when cold but becomes richer as it warms. Like the description says, it’s malty without being overly sweet. An initial taste of raisins or dates, then a short bump of malt, then a mildly sweet alcohol taste. Do I get a vague metallic note at the very end? Let's try another sip..no, it's more of an almost imperceptible bitterness. I will admit this is a relatively complex beer, and as it warms its complexity and aroma increase dramatically. Not a quaffing beer, but a sipper.

bubslang (438) - Kentwood, Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2003
Garnet brown with a small off white head. Slightly alcoholic aroma of caramel and raisins. Initial taste is of sweet caramel malt, raisins, and black cherries. some mild spiciness and a slight pleasant alcohol burn show up midway, leading to a nice bitter finish. Full bodied and quite enjoyable.

Dogbrick (9446) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 3, 2003
This brew is dark amber with a medium thick off-white head. Thin lacing in patches all the way down the side of the glass. Strong caramel aroma with a little fruit. Rich body, with a lot of caramel and malt in the flavor. It is pretty hard to hide that high an ABV, but this beer does a pretty good job. The alcohol flavor is not very strong. The alcohol is sweet up front and gets progressively more spicey throughout. This is a very good beer.

Darkover (1528) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2003
Amber with a dark beige head. Caramel and toffee aroma. Very sweet with caramel and raison flavors. Full bodied with the alcohol well hidden. Very drinkable too.
