AirForceHops (3115) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 18, 2013
22oz. Bottle. Winooski Beverage Wear house. Almost clear amber color with thin white head. Nose is caramel, toffee and the hops that they speak of. (Bravo). Flavor is malt forward with hops an after thought. Molasses, honey, figs, brown sugar and some citrus hops to cut the sweetness. Overall for the price it is a nice Barley Wine.

ABUSEDGOAT (2361) - California, USA - NOV 15, 2013
English style! Hazy darker amber color, moderate head, good lace/retention. Malt dominated aroma - syrupy thick caramel, some toffee, lightly floral hops. Full bodied, sweet, pretty nice.

Dorwart (2371) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 1, 2013
2013 vintage. Thin off-white head of fine bubbles with light carbonation. Sweet malts in the aroma with some caramel, buttescotch, a hint of orange and some vegetal aromas. Color is a dark copper. Body is a bit thin and watery with some sweet tarts, candi sugar, light caramel, toasted malts and some more butterscotch. Sort of a hot brew too with a big warming and burn on the gums. Finishes sweet and hot but quite tasty. A prett ygood barleywine but would probably be better with a few months unders its belt.

Pours deep amber into a snifter. Tan medium length head recedes to hug rim. Dark caramel aromas. Sweet caramel upfront turning to mild earth in the still sweet finish.

MadRobin (1899) - Silver Spring, USA - JUN 29, 2014
On tap 4 oz. sampler at Dan's Restaurant and Taproom in Boonsboro , MD. Lightly hazy , copper-red with a creamy off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of caramel, toffee, earthy hops, dates and brown sugar. Taste of dates, raisins, toffee, alcohol, more fruit, caramel and earthy hops. Medium body and medium carbonation. This 2013 edition is ready to drink now (end of June, 2024) and needs no further aging. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brewed in July 2012, drank in July 2014; brewed with bravo hops; amber color; fairly bitter, hoppy aroma for a barleywine; a fairly hoppy barleywine with a good deal of floral hops on a semi-sweet malt base; well balanced

cquiroga (371) - Tujunga, California, USA - JUL 31, 2004
2/21/04. On draft at Toronado Barley Wine Festival ’04 in San Francisco, CA 2/21/04. Pours a dark amber color with a thin, off-white head. Not much lacing, spotty. Light aroma, yeasty sort of like a Belgian. Flavor was mildly yeasty as well, not that hoppy with pale-amber malts. Very bubbly body, fizzy yet hot. Sort of creamy too. All over the tongue. Finish is bright and hot. A little too much. It’s kind of interesting, but I doubt it will get much better with age either.

motelpogo (6492) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 24, 2004
bottle at perkeo’s gathering. decent barley wine. some prune and fig aromas, golden syrup sweetness with some vanilla essence and pear schnapps, quite full-bodied, perhaps a little sweeter in the finish than i would like but still quite good

Poured a caramel color with a thin white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of port, lemons, raisins, and caramel malt. Taste of caramel malt, very sweet, some raisins, and lots of alcohol.
