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: FEB 9, 2004 Fiery,hell,red.Head is fizzy,and leaves a ring,but overall is small. Airy,dry aroma. Big fruit,nut,fig and underlying alcohol is well hidden. Mouthfeel is soft,and creamy(similar to Heathen).Candied fruits start,following are some serious malts.Finish is sweet,earthy,and alcoholic.Hops are notieable but well balanced with the alcohol in the finish.Elegantly done!

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2003 Dark fruits (raisins, maybe figs?) abound in the very smooth, very thick malts. Some apple sweetness too. Not very hoppy, or, more appropriately - very malty. I liked this, but it gets too sweet after a couple of bottles.

Butterscotch aroma. Syrupy, sweet flavour. Mellow, yet sticky. Cloudy brown-orange colour. Could use a bit hore hopping. This one is definitely on the sweet side.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2012 In the bottle. This is a bit sweet and not quite as strong as some other Barley Wines out there. Still, it is strong and fruity.

Dark amber. Big head. Spicy nose with some notes of dark fruit (plums, dates?) The flavor starts out very spicy. Maybe a hint of pineapple? A bit underhopped. Alcohol is present but well covered. All in all a decent barleywine.

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2003
This beer poured a nice dark red amber color and formed a huge foamy off white head that left circular lace as it subsided. Some carbonation is present. An aroma of malt, caramel and grapes with a slight wine aspect to it. A flavor of malt, caramel and chocolate. A warming aspect of the alcohol present is apparent in the medium body smooth finish. This beer could use some aging, but is not a bad barley wine.
