Olde Deuteronomy is a beer that is high in alcohol, full-bodied, and has a "chewy" maltiness. Because it improves with age, it is called a barley wine. Olde Deuteronomy is truly a beer to be shared with friends and should be sipped out of a brandy snifter. Each vintage will age and improve for several more years.
ABV varies from 10.2% to 11.5%. 26.4

341ml bottle. [Vintage 2016] Pours a clear red-brown with a thin, tan head that leaves spotty lacing. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, overripe fruit and alcohol. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, overripe fruit, brown sugar and a hint of oak with warming alcohol in the finish. Medium body with a sticky, oily texture and soft carbonation. A pleasant surprise.

355ml bottle, a screw-top bottle of all things which is sumpthin I dont appreciate on a barley wine of all things - like, chug! chug! chug! Is that the barleywine motto? Nah, didnt think so. Has minimal head and dark ruby clear colour. Candy, rosewater, toffee on the nose. Flavour is thick caramel with candy sugar molasses hints. Alcohol is not present, so a point for that. Very pancake-syrup like, kinda if you mixed Aunt Jemima with a few shots of vodka.... hey, thats giving me ideas if Im hard up for booze or barleywine at 3am and the craft beer store is closed. Must investigate....

Murky deep brown pour, thin dark head with little retention. Aroma of big malt, toffee, brown sugar, dark fruit, and some alcohol. Taste is is sweet heavy malt. Thicker, leaning towards syrupy body. some warming alcohol comes through but not unpleasant.

Rating #1429 08.01.2015 - Beer #12 in @beerblast #Beermas. Amber pour with a bubbly tan head, decent retention. Aroma is brown sugar, caramel malt, alcohol. Low-medium carbonation, explosive alcohol warmth and depth. Palate is a whirlwind of malty sweet, and boozy alcoholic notes, mild astringency, mild bitterness that lingers into the finish. Very nice.

Bottle traded with TimE about 3/4 years ago. Thought Id age this a bit and my has it turned out well. Colour is murky reddish/orange, few bits in it, off white head which dissipates to nothing. Nose is musty grain, barley sugar boiled sweets, burnt sugar/caramel, citrousy blood oranges, bit of grapefruit peel, little yeast extract and slight oxidisation. Taste is musty grain, citrousy blood oranges, grapefruit rind, caramel, barley sugar. Really lovely blood orange character providing bitterness and then softer sugary notes complimenting it. Musty and soft, just how I like my barley wines.

341 ml bottle shared by DrSilverworm, left over from a tasting. Thanks, Chris & Beau! Pours a clear burnt orange color with no head. But its been open for a bit. Notes of tea, brown sugar, toast, caramel, earth, toffee, and some underlying bitterness. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a malty, rich, somewhat bitter and earthy mouthfeel. Now I need to try it fresh, because open for a while, I liked what was there. Ill visit Edmonton for it someday.

11.2 or 12 oz bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a clear dark amber color with a thin off white film. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, an herbal hop character, fruit, some oxidation, though it says 2015, leans more toward the malty side.

Bottle to snifter (shared with the Cincy crew; thanks DuffMan). 2015 vintage, 20th Anniversary Edition. Looks solid; a transparent brown with thin off-white head that quickly dissipates into thin lacing. Smells bittersweet with notes of toffee and oak. Tastes like it smells with a medium full-bodied mouthfeel. Unbalanced, but may settle down with some age.

Erzengel (8174) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 30, 2015
The beer starts fresh but viscous. Easy to drink but deep and thick. Malt, dried fruits, intense. Viscous, smooth, sticky. Toffee, dried plums, moderate bitter, smooth and malt. Not too sweetish, but easy to drink. Nice but not as complex as it could be.
