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.

12 ounce bottle- poured a wonderful pumpkin orange with a light head. Aroma took me a few moments to classify, but definitely favored melon and dates. Taste was distinctly cantaloupe, (I couldn’t make that up), raisin and date, almost cloyingly sweet. the palate was thick and syrupy. A nice diversion, but almost too sweet.

poured into snifter a very slightly hazed bottle brown with thin just off white head and some lace. Aroma is figs, alcohol, and caramel. It’s fruity and candy sweet. Taste is sweetined figs, with a gaining grain taste as you swallow. Finish is slightly alcohol and warming. Like drinking a Fig Newton. Really like this one.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a cloudy copper with small off white head that diminishess to nothing. The aroma is dark fruit, figs, and caramel. Thin mouth with caramel, candy sugar, dark fruit, very good.

libertine (255) - 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 (476) - Fenton, Michigan, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Tap, another overly sweet BW that is a struggle to finish and reminds me why I don’t like this style. Although, there are some very good BWs; this isn’t one of them. This really suffers from lack of hop aroma, flavor, and bitterness. Unbalanced and boring.
