COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Foffern (1781) - Bod, - NOV 4, 2012
Bottle shared with (and courtasy of) The Bergen tasting crew, and Gunnar. Has a hazy dark brown colour with a medium beige head. Lots of hops in a fruity aroma with the addition of dried fruit, pine and rye. A lot of malt in the flavour and more powerful hops as well, almost herbal with grass and pine. The mouthfeel is soft and slick, and has a medium bitterness. A very nice ale! I also understand that theres a huge difference between an English barley wine and an American one. This is closer to a DIPA.

Bottle, cask London. Pours gorgeous Ruby dark brown red with no head. Scent is light wine and pale malt. Taste is lovely caramel and sugary malt old ale. Gorgeous. Finish is a bit sticky but lovely. Fruity. Very great.

12oz bottle at the Knickerbocker Hotel on 42nd in NYC. Reddish brown in colour with a thin brown head. Aroma of dark fruit, spices and toffee. Full body and soft carbonation. Taste is heavy sweet. Molasses, caramel, sweet malt and booze. Light hops. Flavour overwhelmed by the high ABV and sweetness.

Satyroneto (354) - BRAZIL - FEB 7, 2017
Cerveja de cor âmbar com tons caramelo, turva e com leve brilho; espuma marfim (um pouco amarelada) de média/alta formação com persistência de uma fina camada e bom lacing. Aroma maltado de caramelo, frutas cristalizadas e calda de morango; concomitante aroma de lúpulo resinoso. Sabor maltado seguindo o aroma com final seco, picante e de amargor resinoso muito limpo; retrogosto amargo alcoólico que aquece a boca, além de um leve toque medicinal de laranja. Corpo médio, levemente aveludado e de baixa carbonatação. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jgb9348 (6002) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 18, 2016
Very thin copper and light bronze coloured body with a very thin, fast-dying tan head, about only a centimetre tall. Aroma of pit fruits, alcohol, oak, piney hops and a bit of whiskey. Medium-bodied; Assertive rye and deep malty flavours with tons of alcohol burn and very little else, perhaps some light hops. Aftertaste is relatively thin (very thin for the style) with not much malt, but pure alcohol burn and rye bitterness along with some hops and a touch of grain, but the alcohol is super pungent, and literally no body is present. Overall, a very interesting and somewhat easy-to-drink barley wine without any body or complexities, but goes down pretty easy for ~11,0% abv, but thats because there is nothing too nice about this one - a very interesting beer. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in New York (Bowery), New York on 05-December-2015 sampled at home in Washington just over a year later on 17-December-2016.

bulldogops (2490) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 27, 2016
Golden pour with a bubbly tan head, decent retention. Aroma is American oak, vanilla,cracked wheat, vanilla, powdered sugar, wildflower honey Low-medium carbonation, explosive alcohol warmth and depth. Palate is a whirlwind of malty sweet, and alcoholic, earthy dry tones. A phenomenal beer.

AssKicker (359) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - NOV 18, 2016
Couleur brun/rouge du plus bel effet, mousse prsente, mais pas trop non plus. Assez discret au pif, on peroit les malts et du caramel, mais faut pas mal chercher. En revanche en bouche a pte de partout avec des notes de pruneaux et de vin cuit de type Porto. Les houblons sont aussi pas mal prsents pour une bire du genre avec une amertume assez prsente. Vraiment trs chouette !
