UPDATED: APR 13, 2005 22 oz bottle. Served in NB worthy glass @ 63.2°. Pours light red with an of white head. The nose is hoppy. Perfumy, piney, and floral aroma. The flavor is a HUGE malt, brown sugar, and mollases with a touch of bitterness at first. The midfinsh is spicy and somewhat hoppy. Tasty stuff. Thick in the mouth.

Pours a lovely garnet color with a small light amber head. The nose is full of hops.Hops all the way through with some carmel. Great mouthfeel. I think Hog Heaven is best when fresh from a keg, but if your not a hophead it ages nicely! SayNoToCoors (65) - Wheat Ridge, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2005
Wow! What a damn good barley wine! This one pours a dark ruby with a head that goes away almost as fast as it comes... that sounded bad... anyways, this brew hides the alcohol very well. There is a nice sweet caramel flavor... kind of like caramel apples actually. Very good. One of the best brews to come from Avery. Ungstrup (37317) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 6, 2005
An amber beer with a small light brown head. The aroma is grassy and hoppy. The flavor is very hoppy combined with notes of caramel. Nice Barley Wine with the alcohol really well hidden. Ray1975 (251) - Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, USA - APR 6, 2005
Poured a dark red color with a medium sized white head. Heavy hop citrus aroma with a small hint of malt. Flavor was heavy on the hops with a bit of sweet malt and a alcohol finish. Nice barleywine.

Bottle. Deep red colour with a big off-white head. Hoppy spicy aroma and a light sweet hoppy bitter taste. Medium to full body and a light sweet long bitter dry finish. daalamar (405) - new albany, Indiana, USA - APR 2, 2005
Really is dangerously drinkable. Wonderful hoppy yet sweet and powerful aroma. color is orangish brown with a medium head that quickly dissipates. Flavir is initially hoppy but quickly turnd with stong malt finishing clean. Only downfall is the abruptness of the finish. Wonderful beer. Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - MAR 28, 2005
Transparent deep orange/red, slight head white in color. Seemed to have good carbonation flowing up through the beer. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, sour fruit, earthiness, and pine trees. Flavor is begins with bitter hops which fades into a sour biting alcohol taste. Alchohol is poorly hidden. Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Very nice. It actually is a garnet color, as advertised, with a whisp of a white head. I thought I’d poured myself an IIPA at first, the hop aroma being that intense. But the strong floral/grapefruit/herbal /piney scents couldn’t completely cover the sweet caramel aroma. The two tastes battle it out to create a strong but well balanced barley wine, the alcohol telling your throat that it’s there. Sticky, bittersweet finish. Nice. thegreenrooster (4373) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 25, 2005
Pour is a deep red with almost no head. Aroma is of faint hops. Flavor is of faint hops and faint malts. Pretty weak overall. So many people rated this 4+ but I don’t get it. I guess cellering this many bring out more to this brew but i found it average at best.
