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.

Poured from a 12 oz.bottle while on vacation in SC. Amber in color with no head. Sweet, malty, fruity aroma. You can definitely feel and taste the alcohol in this beer. The taste is sweet but not overly-sweet. A nice sipping beer to be enjoyed slowly.

libertine (249) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - FEB 17, 2015
color is burnt copper. Aroma is thick of sweet dark fruits. Its boozy, and gets more intense as it warms. flavor is sweet, bread and dark fruits. sticky mouth feel. The alcohol is not hidden in the malty sweetness. alcohol gets real intense in the finish. Good barley wine. They advertise this as not overly sweet but it is. That is my only knock on it.

paintedmaple (471) - Fenton, Michigan, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Tap, another overly sweet BW that is a struggle to finish and reminds me why I donít like this style. Although, there are some very good BWs; this isnít one of them. This really suffers from lack of hop aroma, flavor, and bitterness. Unbalanced and boring.
