shigadeyo (3637) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Vanilla, milky caramel, slightly nutty (hints of hazelnut), gets more complex as it warms. Cloudy brown color, bubbly beige head. Sugary and sweet, dates, honey, dark fruits in the background, real toffee in the finish. Complex and delightfully drinkable. Nearly cloying and warming, but no alcohol can be tasted at all. Full body, smooth and milky, slightly creamy. This is definitely a dangerous beer. It?s truly a "deal with the devil."

22 oz bottle consumed at my 8th and possibly last US Open/Fathers Day weekend barleywine tasting. Deep crimson brown with beige froth. Nose is caramel, brandy, raisin and dates. Sticky medium to full body with a buzz. Taste is brandy, caramel, raisin, oak and citrus peel. Simple base brew allows the cognac to shine.

Aroma: intense caramel, molasses, some spices, anything sweet that comes to mind. Appearance: hazy brown, no head. Taste: heavy sweet. Palate: intense sweets, creamy, full bodied, molasses, toffee, some barnyard / brett, slightly toasted flavours in the finish. Overall: excellent Barley Wine, incredibly sweet, doesnt give the ABV away. Pint at CASK Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico.

Fra fat p CBC mai-13: barley wine er godterier for greie gutter, og denne er intet unntak. Brun ravfarge, klar og fin med beige skum. S kommer aromaen opp og jeg greier ikke vente lenger. Barley wine lagret p cognacfat, ah so smooth. I toppsjiktet denne kvelden.
