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.

Shared 12 oz. bottle poured to snifters, showing a hazed, copper hue, with a bubbly layer of off white head foam, and minimal spots of lacing. The nose was sweet grain, light dried fruit, and some lurking alcohol presence. The taste was similar notes, decent malt, and alcohol warmth. All the right components were present, but didnít impress as anymore than an average Barleywine.

Bottle from Beer heaven. Malt dominates, semi-sweet aroma, some wood, and peat. Taste is more malt, burnt toast, oak barrel. Very abrupt finish and just a hint of alcohol warmth.

Bottle shared by sonnycheeba. Pours a darker amber with a minimal ring of off white head. Aroma of dark fruit and malts. A bit sweeter aroma than most, but not overly sweet. Taste is raisins, caramel, and booze with nice carbonation.

Totally good this. Very strong and malty. The shape is notorious and it is also very cloudy there.

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 donít 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.

Darwenus (573) - Virginia, USA - MAY 4, 2014
I love this barley wine. It pours a bright, copper color, the little bit of foam fades quickly, and thereís no lace. The aroma is herbs and sweet tones, apples, molasses. The flavor is not overly sweet. Itís 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. Itís thick and viscous.
