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.

madmitch76 (14744) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2010
24th September 2008. Clear brown beer. A nose of bubblegum. A sweet start with a clear bubblegum tone. Then turns spirity and hot. Licorice undertone and ends with a bitter dry finish. Tasty but it’s a bit off the leash!

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2009 2009-09-02, bottle at Akkurat, Stockholm, vintage 2004, 5 years old, 7-5-7-4-14=37
Hazy red-amber color, hazy; creamy head. Caramel aroma, with a plum side, and some alcohol. Reasonable body stength, mature caramel flavor, medium sweetness, plum touch and raisins; correct bitterness, but the final is not sweet as it should be. So aged, it reminds me more an American version of Belgian Strong Ale than a Barley Wine.

2007-04-25, bottle, 8-4-8-4-17=41
Beautiful amber color; thin persistent head. Malty aroma, spicy, perfumy; interesting. Malty flavor, not too sticky, spicy, peppery; sweetness and balanced bitterness; the alcohol burns a bit. A very good strong ale, powerful; too much yeast in the bottle. More Belgian style (the yeast?) than English.
