COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Alaskan Barley Wine has been produced in limited edition vintages each year since its introduction in 2003. A big beer for big winters, this brew has garnered a steady following in Alaska. Bottled for the first time in 2007, the balanced flavor collaboration between hops, malt and high alcohol showcases the barley wine style, winning first place at the 2007 Toronado Barley Wine Festival and bronze at the 2008 World Beer Cup.

2011 bottle that has been chillin’ in my cellar. Dark amber pour with a slight off white head. Massive toffee and caramel nose - really nice. Nice mouthfeel - but but not overpowering. Very little hop presence, lots of malty goodness. No alcohol heat in the finish - very smooth. Yummy.

stevoj (5031) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 4, 2015
barley wine bottle share on 1/31, 2008 vintage. What a away to finish the night. Pours beautiful orange-red with thin white head, aroma has awesome notes of rich caramel, toffee, vanilla, some candied fruit, sticky honey, and some slight bread notes. Perfectly aged barley-wine. Taste is sweet and sticky caramel, vanilla, toffee, honey with some slight bitter hay and grass, finishing dry and slightly sweet.

Crispy34 (496) - Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2015
2013 edition bomber. Aroma is barley wine with lots of yeast present. Appearance is brown with a tan head. Taste is a smooth barley wine flavor that is not over powering. Not boozy, just right. Overall, a well aged barley wine. Will buy and age again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SHIG (4962) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Draft of 2013 version at GABBF : Poured a murky brown with a tan head. Aroma is a nice blend citrus, hops and sweet sugars. Taste is mixed with hops, caramel malts, and loads of alcohol burn.

4.1
ajtrupp (340) - Broomfield, Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Sweet and boozy. What you'd want from a barley wine. I'm wondering why Lucky Pie is selling it for $5. My gain. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
