Dominion Millennium is a very strong ale brewed in the English Barley Wine style. Often called the "sherry of the beer world", barley wine is best sipped at warmer temperatures, and should be enjoyed in moderation, as it contains twice the alcohol of regular beers.

BoydJustitz (58) - Maryland, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Amber-brown pour, slight off-white head. Strong caramel, honey and alcohol aroma. A bit of a tannic oak bite after a sweet fruity flavor. Medium body, mild carbonation. This is a heavy beer both in alcohol content and in flavor... no seconds needed.

Lucked out at a bottle share and got the 1998 version. Pours clear mahogany, no head to speak of. Aroma is very sweet and boozy. Flavor features roasted malt, caramel, woody and fruity tones. Mouthfeel has decent body of not much fizz - but it has been 19 years, maybe 20. Toast the Dominion!

vyvvy (6363) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Bottling date Feb 1995 - 20 year old bottle. Pours chestnut brown with minimal head. The aroma has toasted malt, dough, toffee, richness and English yeast. It has a rich body with very little soft carbonation. The flavor starts with toasty malt, wood, oxidation and weird household cleaner. The finish is dry, but has a broken sugar aspect as well. Interesting. Not perfect, but for twenty years old its held up pretty respectable.

Great reddish dark garnet red color, clear. Earthy hop aroma and sweetness. Strong malty flavor with some old ale sherry going on. Overall pretty good beer.

12 oz bottle into a Chimay goblet. A: Pours a dark amber color with good clarity. While the head is quite creamy, it only pours about half a finger high (eggshell shade) and doesnt even have good retention to make up for it. Small hints of lacing are left on the glass. S: Immediately, I notice a boozy character, albeit a defined and non-harsh one. Caramel is (expectedly) strong here, along with toffee, earth, leather, and even something suggesting candy-coated hops. Honey is a lesser characteristic semi-hidden underneath the primary notes. Aromatically, there isnt much to get excited about, but by no means is it unsatisfactory. T: It starts with a healthy nutty flavor. Its past the midpoint where this one gets interesting. Theres just enough hoppiness here - existing as a slight herbal (and, at points, even citrusy) tone on the back end - to ballast the sweetness without coming off like some big DIPA. Did I mention its boozy? Theres no monstrous sugar note here (it is a bit sweet and candy-like at times, but hey its 10.5%) to cover the alcohol, so the latter is rather prevalent. However, it does its job well: it gives the beer some complex nuance without being ruinously burning or unbalanced. Its both complex AND well-integrated, so in that regard, its a big success. M: While its boozy, it isnt a harsh booziness. Plus, its rather dry. While it could use a longer finish by all means, that means this one is easy to drink, even with its full body. Maybe I should call it an easy sipper...yeah, thats perfect, easy sipper. O: This is a barleywine for barleywine lovers. Its boozy, kind of challenging, but drinkable to those who can handle it. Its a fantastic aging candidate - too bad the twist-off cap is going to oxidize it too quickly...

Bottle at home from notes 07. Pours reddish copper with a smaller disappearing white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel, dark fruit, fig, dates, brown sugar, a hint of vanilla, and some citrus elements. Decent mouthfeel. Decent enough, sweet, I definitely liked the oak aged version better.

Nero55 (933) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Draft. Deep copper with thin beige head. Strong aroma of fruit esters (raspberries), caramel sweetness, and resinous hops. Heavy body with resinous hop bitter, medium sweetness and a bitter finish. I expected more malt presence and it feels more like an American than an English Barley Wine.

Damico (3146) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2014
This bottle is about 5 years old, and is an ABV of 10. Pours thick dark brown amber with a beige head. Aroma is sweet honey and malts, quite beautiful! The flavor brings some big sweet malty booze with some aged sweet alcohol, Body is medium, not too big but welcoming for the ABV.

jrodooo5 (1628) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Interesting take on a barley wine. Very good boozy, hoppy, and possibly a hint of honey aroma. The pour is copper with a nice white head that leaves a good ring of lacing. The taste is somewhat sweet upfront but abruptly finishes quite bitter. Pretty unique and overall a solid beer.
