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.

UDBeernut (1853) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Bottle pours murky tan, small head that fades quick. Nose of malt and fruit. Taste has a nice caramel base. Fruit and flower on the edges. This has a nice balance to it. Full body, a bit chewy on the edges.

MPA (838) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle. Bought at De Molen in 2011, rated 28th of november 2014. Mørkt brown with beige head. Some sediment. Aroma of figs, dates, prunes and alcohol. Sweet flavour of dark fruit along with burned caramel and a very decent bitterness. Alcohol dads warmth and it stays on the tongue and in the throat for a long time. Powerful in flavour without going over the top. Still something seems a bit off.

20/X/14 - 12Fl. Oz. bottle from Bierkompass (webshop, DE) @ home - BB: n/a (2014-1238)

Clear amber to red beer, small aery off-white irregular head, unstable, non adhesive, dissipates immediately. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bit sourish, lots of bubble gum, sugary touch, cherries, cherry ice cream, some caramel. Aftertaste: alcohol, bitter hops, sugary, some strawberry jam, boozy, sticky. Not bad, but I expected much more of this...

pivnizub (9030) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 14, 2014
Bottle: Deep golden, floaties visible, no head to speak of; nutty, sugary, caramelly and raisiny-vinous nose; solid sweet flavour with a well hidden bitterness; solid sweet flavour with a well hidden bittterness, full bodied; some flavours in the finish as in the nose, completed by warming alcohol. Good, but not earth-shaking...

Patrickctenchi (4107) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle: Cloudy, medium brown...a tan cap, for just an instant. Aroma of fruits....figs, caramel. Taste is smooth and sweet, fruits, caramel malt, fig, a little cinnamon.... Incredibly well done...almost no hint of alcohol bittering despite the high ABV. A true pleasure to drink.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks zvikar. Hazy deep reddish amber with a beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, a cookie note, fruits and alcohol. Sweet flavor, malty, caramelly, a bit cookie-ish, with some fruitiness and some alcohol. Rounded mouthfeel.
