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.

Sample at the brewery. Pours caramel colored brown with thick head and nice lacing. Malty, brown sugar on the nose. Full bodied. Heavy alcohol flavors alongside some surprising sweet notes--malts, caramel, earthy oak. Pretty cool.

Bottle pour reddish copper. Nose sweet malt, raisin, toffee, hint of floral. Taste sweet dried fruit malt up front then early palate bitterness. Late palate heat and alcohol. Jammy raisin finish.

Barwa:Barwa: miedziana, lekko zmętniona, praktycznie bez piany, wysycenie minimalne. [2/5] Aromat: zaskakująco ubogi - karmel, alkohol, owoce (wiśnie?) [2,8/5] Smak: słodki, karmelowo - owocowy z nutami herbatnikowymi, bez gazu, z wyraźną nutą alkoholową. [2,8/5] Cena / jakość: [3,7/5] Przykro to mówić, ale kolejne barley wine wypada bardzo słabo. Ostatnio ten styl niczym mnie nie zaskoczył, a wręcz rozczarowuje na każdym kroku. Idiot nie zawiera gazu zatem pije je się faktycznie, jak wino, ale nie działa to na korzyść. Poza wyraźnym alkoholem trudno powiedzieć coś konkretnego (i pozytywnego) o tym piwie. Trzeba było chociaż dodać więcej chmielu...

Pours dirty brown copper with a small disappearing white ring. Aroma is dark fruity, loads of malts all different kinds. Taste is sweet, caramel, dark fruits, grape, small hop bitterness. Nicely complex. Tons of stuff going on.

A good strong drink. It was surprising at first due to the fact that poured out like cough syrup. The taste was good but had a very string alcohol after taste.

Duhast500 (378) - Cumberland, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a tulip glass. The color is a deep maroon/red with some light brown fomay head with some nice lacing. The smell is a fruity alcohol mix with some grape flavor as well as a sugary candy flavor. The taste is sweet with a dark fruit and surgery flavor that did make me wince a little but settled in pretty quickly. The alcohol feel does seem to slide over the tongue and latch on as the aftertaste lingers for a bit but no unpleasant. The mouth feel is a bit heavy at first but lightens up a bit after the first contact of the flavor hits the tongue. Goes down well especially on a hot day like this when I tried it. Anything would go down well tonight.

Kolor: Bardzo ładny bursztyn, pływające drobne cząstki . Piana: Coś na początku, potem 0 . Zapach: Owocowość(jabłka), słodycz, alkohol. Nie powala Smak: Delikatna słodycz, delikatny alkohol, delikatna goryczka, nuta owocowa. No właśnie wszystko takie za delikatne. Jakby czegoś w nim brakowało. Wysycenie: Trochę za wysokie Opakowanie: Opakowanie bardzo ładne
