Did you also at some point in your life get seduced by promising words like probably the best in the world, it works every time etc.? This American Barley Wine Ale says it how it is. Its intense, attention seekingly hoppy, and definitely your kind of beer. A beer with a big ego, drive and a huge thirst for recognition.

(Evil Twin Freudian Slip) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a snifter, ABV 10.3% Deep red colour on the body with a small tan head, good density and retention. Aroma has plenty of hops, anise -reminding of sambuca- , red fruits, light orange peel. Taste has also red fruits, anise, alcohol, sambuca or ouzo reminding flavours especially on the afinish and aftertaste, orange peel, light citrus. Medium body, good carbonation, sticky palate. Quite good, interesting barley wine.

Bottle. Heather and I picked these up at DeLocks in Munster after a quick trip to 3Fs (side-note: bad idea visiting the brewery a week before DLD). Coppery brown pour, medium off-white head, nose is candy sugar, maple, vanilla, dried fruit (dates, figs and prunes), marshmallow. Mouth is medium-full, but not sticky like some, definitely drier than I like my barleywines (Heather agreed), but tasted an awful lot like everything youd find in good candy minus the sugary part -- caramel, toffee, vanilla, maple, brown sugar, then some lingering bitterness. Overall this was good, although Id like it better a touch sweeter. Just hit 1,234 ratings... like an alcoholic Sesame Street lesson in counting. Hopefully my liver holds out til 12,345 ;-P

Bawelt (722) - Lyon, FRANCE - APR 19, 2016
Une barley wine comme je les aime, comme elles devraient tre. Nez typique : un fond vieux caramel fum, du porto, des fruits rouges, un fond pomme cannelle, quilibre parfait. Bouche archi ronde, trs quilibre, peu thylique. Hyper caramel, assez liquoreuse, pointe damertume aux aspects oranges amres. Bouche moins riche que le bouquet mais trs quilibre, puissante. On peroit les fruits rouges dans la longueur.

AdolfoCC (225) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - APR 8, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2016 Servida en Snifter, APARIENCIA: De color cobrizo con destello naranjas, se observa turbia y poco de sedimento en el lquido. Corona de espuma color beige, de un dedo de altura de baja retencin, que se disipa rapidamente dejando slo una capa superficial, de burbuja abierta y un poco de lacing. AROMA: Muy complejo; notas de caramelo, toffee, frutos oscuros maduros, algo de licor similar al jerez, ligeras notas de lpulo de carcter ctrico. El aroma es impresionante. SABOR: Igualmente complenjo, de entrada el dulzor con notas de caramelo, toffee, frutos oscuros maduros como dtiles, ciruela, algo de gusto ctrico del lpulo muy balanceado con el dulzor de las maltas y seguido de un amargor moderado nada agresivo. El retrogusto queda el amargor moderado, no astringente y ligero gusto alcohlico. SENSACIN: Cuerpo completo y baja carbonatacin. RESUMEN: un buen exponente del estilo American BarleyWine, muy agradable y placentera de tomar.

ZodiacM (960) - NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2016
Uit de fles geschonken. Mooi roodbruin bier. Zoetig aroma met een flinke dosis gedroogd fruit. Mooi zoet-bittere smaak met tonen van gedroogd fruit (pruimen), waarna de hoppige smaak naar boven komt, eindigend in een lekkere bittere afdronk. Mooie barley wine derhalve.

Enteogenisk (162) - Blsta, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2016
(33 cl bottle in wine glass.) It pours beautifully in amber with a thin white head. Both aroma and taste is subtle for a barley wine, but elegant. Probably not as sweet as the ones Ive tried prior to this one which is refreshing. Have been bracing myself to try this because of the sweetness present in some, this is more slick though. More hop oriented than malt Id say. Good refreshing bitterness.

Bottle. Pours an auburn brown with a small head. Aroma is caramel, dried fruit, strong red, dark fruit. Taste is sharply caramel, some fruitiness, some dried fruit. Good barleywine.

ciocanelu (1830) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAR 23, 2016
Slightly hazy dark amber color with beige head. Aroma is sweet and malty with intense alcohol. Taste is quite bitter up-front with some roasted malts in the background. Alcohol is quite present in the taste too. Medium body and carbonation. Really bitter and alcoholic barleywine, very unbalanced.

AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Sharp, piney, slightly floral, vaguely fruity hops are met with a cascade of sweet malts, with some molasses, dark fruits, and caramel. Strikes an impressive balance between malt and hop, "balance" not implying "restraint." Substantially built, thick on the tongue with good carbonation and a bit of a sting. Better than I thought it would be.
