500 ml. bottle. Pours a thin, very short lived, head, with slight lacing, over a slightly hazy, reddish amber (SRM 15) body.....nose is treacle, plum, dates, fig....taste is sweet with treacle, plum, date, finishing with a moderate spice, pepper bitterness.....mouth feel thick, slightly astringent, sticky, alcohol warmth present, carbonation low, but adding slight tingle. This is an English style Barley Wine, with the complex malt back bone, being slightly dominant over the hops, which add a nice balancing bitterness on the finish. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

500ml bottle. Murky orange brown in colour with a long lasting beige head, excellent lacing. The aroma is very hoppy, lots of candy sweetness, caramel, pepper. The flavour is warming, quite sweet, some fruit, caramel malts, light spice. Warming mouthfeel, medium/large body, high carbonation. Finishes long, warming. A big bold hoppy and chewy barley wine. Fantastic stuff.

Draught (backlog). Murky reddish brown colour with a mediumsized small off-white head. Aroma is rather fruity along with some slight alcohol and mild malty sweetness to it. Flavour is similar with some mild toasted maltiness as well as some earthy and alcohol sweetness kicking in the finish.

Bottle from Mike’s Barleywine tasting, thanks for the opportunity! Earthy spicy pine hops against a fruity caramel sweet malt base. Nice hop blast after a night of aged barleywine drinking.

Hazy dark copper with a thin off white head. Big lovely sticky nose with plum and toffee and boozy dark malt and apple and honey. Lovely big flavor of the same. Lots of honey and pale malt for the backbone with some boozy toffee and apple and dates and raisins. Nice.

Draft at Churchkey. Poured a nice orange color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was sweet malts, some sugar notes, booze. Flavor was pine needles, with some sweet brown sugar. A bit of heat to it, but tasty.

solidfunk (6843) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Decent barley wine. Pours paler than many barley wines, with a hazy orange hue. Light sweet finish with some caramelized malt and sugar. A touch of hops as well. A little syrupy, but not unbearably so. Tap at Churchkey.

bottle. hazy red with some sediment under a small head. strawberry and caramel aroma. a warming finish and full body. most of the hop notes have dropped out at this point leaving a nice berry character. abv still shows some strength and leaves a strong warming sensation. moderate to high malt sweetness for the style.

Bottle. Hazy caramel colour with a thin head. Lots of bitterness on this one and the malts are not as rich as I would have liked.
