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.

OnWisconsin (132) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Poured a cloudy dark amber red with a very minimal head. Aroma hits you with dark fruits, mostly cherry followed by caramel and malt. Taste is sweet up front of the palate with a alcohol soaked cherries and finishing with the heat that I would expect. Mouthfeel is medium with carbonation that tickles the tongue and just a tad syrupy. A nice average barleywine for the abv.

ilovedarkbeer (2446) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Pours a deep reddish mahogany color. Notes of heavy fig, licorice, belgian candi sugar, and dried fruit. Way too sweet and the alcohol is not well integrated.

Teku glass. Bottle.Fruity and caramel aroma. Malty, dark fruits flavour with booz noticable. Medium body, sticky texture, lively carbonation, finish is semi-sweet and bitter. In overall not the best barley wine.

Pours very attractive dark orange amber with red highlights and small tan head that dissipates with little trace. Aroma not as big as one might expect, but intense malt, alcohol, caramel and honey. On the palate, it has a hot, buzzy sweetness turning bitter on the finish, burnt caramel. Points for attempting an actual barleywine, as opposed to the unpalatable over-hopped frauds often passed off by US breweries. But its not as deep and unctuous _ as winey _ as the best barleywines, and needs time in the cellar to smooth its rough edges. I may come back to this in six months or a year and see if it has progressed.

rumproasts (4132) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 16, 2015
bottle. Amber with small head. Sweet caramel malt base. Medium body. Moderate hops, but low bitterness. Very slight booze. Itís amazing how smooth and easy this drinks for an 11% barleywine. Really well done.

Pours hazy reddish amber with little head. Intense aromas of honey, caramel, citrus drop, orange candy, ripe plantain, dandelion... Taste begins sweet and powerful. Full body. Good sourness that matches the sheer bitter flavour. Medium finish. Very good.
