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 orange in color. Very malty. Very sweet. Prob needs a little aging to fully apreciate. Alcohol presence strong. Very good barley wine

I liked this beer a lot. Fruity tastes and aroma (raisins, berries). A full body and syrupy texture. A noticeable amount of alcohol kicks up the flavors a notch.

Hazy brown, malty nose, minimal head. Not much in the hop department, and pretty sweet with a vinous note.

Cocolate malt nose. Cloudy brown body. Acidic, chocolate, banana taste. Very yummie! Thank you Richard, great!

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 dark & evil browness with halo'd head and lacey middles...
Aroma stung with cherry twizlers and alcohol..
they just couldn't hide that 11.1%..Not saying its easy, but they could have tried harder..its way too overpowering..there's some cherry notes, maybe some licorice and a tad of sweet orange..but its driven by pure unadulterated alcohol! I can't handle it..

Murky brown pour with no light showing through the middle. Quickly diminishing head.Now this is a nice malty b wine that isnt overly sweet.ABV is hidden expertly! 11.1% wasnt even in mind. WOW this could be a dangerous beer.A bit thin for the style but regardless of that its a good beer.

This is an excellent brew. The finish is bitter but still very enjoyable. Ranks up there high with Dogfish Head

Fabulous barleywine. Rich, sweet fruity aroma. Short lived tan head with lacing. Sweet flavor, grape, fig?, some caramel. Syrupy mouthfeel, some bitterness at the end. One of my favorite barleywines.

This is a fitting name for this beer. It is a very strong beer, but is also very tasty. It has a fruity taste and a nice finish.

Malty aroma, rapidly dissolving head, and a nice burgundy color. Finishes very sweet, but not overly so. I do not detect any alcohol. It has a very good flavor, but maybe slightly on the weak side. This is an easy drinking barley wine, which could be dangerous since it’s 11 % ABV. Very good.
