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.

Hazy dark copper with a big off white head, much bigger and more stable than I would have expected on a barley wine. Aroma of dried fruit, dark caramel, and raisins. Taste full and malty, dried fruit, sugar, raisins, caramel, and just a hint if dryness to balance it out. It is everything you should expect from a barley wine: full, rich, malty, but not heavy of cloying. Damn good (and I don’t even like the style...)

This was a damn good beer. If you can find it, you should try it. Great taste, nice finish and worth every penny. -via BBapp

Decent barley wine. Nice taste of malt and dark dried fruits. Not very special though, expected more from it.

I love this barley wine. It pours a bright, copper color, the little bit of foam fades quickly, and there’s no lace. The aroma is herbs and sweet tones, apples, molasses. The flavor is not overly sweet. It’s very malty, very boozy, but not extremely hot. In fact, the 11+% ABV is buried under the richness. Not as viscous as some barley wines can be, which is a plus from my perspective.

@zebf 2014 - Amber brown colour. Aroma and flavour are very malty and quite sweet too. Some dryness in the finish. It’s thick and viscous.

martjoobolut (713) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 1, 2014
0,33L bottle. Pours murky hazy copper with off white head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is very sweet, caramel, fruits, and herbal. Taste is fruity, caramel, malt, watery, noticeable alcohol, and spicy. Finish is mild hoppy bitter. Overall: very nice brew; feels a little bit like Belgian.

Poured a deep caramel color with aromas of dark fruit, caramel, some light wood, and some bread. Flavors were the same, decent malt backbone and a decent amount of sweetness.
