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.

So this isn’t my favorite Barleywine, but it has is high points. A deep caramel color, poured with little head. Almost a medicinal quality to it. It is nice to see a beer that isn’t completely clear I must say. Claims to be malty, but could use more.

MPA (845) - 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...
