COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brew this in early January and start selling it the following November. It takes two times as much barley and hops to make a single batch of this very strong ale. The reason wine is in the name is because of the wine-like strength of 10 % alchohol

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Tap at brewpub.<br.Pours a deep amber with a nose of deep, boozy molasses and plumb/raisin malt. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, raisin, molasses, and a funky sour note in the finish. Oily on the tongue. Not bad but the sour fruit finish doesn’t work.

rougeau13 (3195) - Richmond, Texas, USA - APR 23, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2016 Bottle from brewery. Opaque medium brown with a small, but lasting, off-white head. Aroma of figs, figs, and more figs, caramel, molasses and slight hops. The flavor, again, is full of figs, sweet, but not too much so. Full bodied and a bit creamy. The first two sips I wasn’t sure, but after that it was quite enjoyable.

joergen (29216) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 11, 2011
Bottle at Theis & Mette. Hazy red brown coloured with a small off-white ehad. Sweet aroma of caramel, dried fruits and bread with notes of alcohol and hops. Sweet and fruity flavour of caramel, cookies, hops and pine needles. Hoppy finish.

nuplastikk (6456) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 14, 2011
12oz bottle picked up near the brewery in September of 2010, opened March 2011, which assumably makes it the 2009 edition. Faint non-hiss when opened and accompanying mild, almost non-existent carbonation level. Murky red-brown. The aroma is classic Barleywine, deep mollases soaked amber malt. A pretty well executed offering, much better fresh and carbonated I’d bet. As it is it comes off a little like watery honey mead. OK.

bhensonb (15761) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 10, 2010
Bottle from the brewpub. Pours very dark amber with some beige/tan bubbles. Dark fruit, almost prune, aromas. Medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is dark fruit, brown sugar, perhaps a little hop. Overall a bit thinnish and a bit undersweet for a barley wine. But it turns out well.

AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - APR 8, 2010
Pours cloudy caramel with no head. Nose and flavor are malt, toffee and a rye like influence. Creamy mouthfeel.

IrishBoy (4233) - Bakersfield, California, USA - FEB 8, 2010
12 oz 2004 bottle a bonus from Ratman! Thanks Don! Nose of raisin pie with some toffee and the pies yeasty crust, nose is really mellow! Very murky amber with a small beige head. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, with an Adam old ale note. Quite a decent barleywine.

madmitch76 (25568) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2010
11th October 2008. GABF. Cloudy brown beer. Dry palate. Dry sourish malt with a bittering mid and finish. Too many rough edges!

3.9
daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 4, 2009
2003 bottle from the ratman! Murky brown pour. Tons of caramel and malt with a very light hop note. Sweet and sugary.
