COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big malty flavors, including licorice and chocolate, are balanced with a moderate hop profile. Brewed with copious amounts of prized malts and flaked oats, the Barley Wine is so strong that it has to be aged for several months before we can bottle it. Like a fine wine, it will continue to improve with age up to 2 years after bottling (If kept cool).

Amanzing odor, very unique smell, very pretty reddish color. Sweet flavor, strong alcohol flavor, perhaps too much so. Heavy and fuzzy/bubbly mouth feel.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, jerc & tupalev - courtesy of tupalev. Ruby brown colour. Strong, sweet aroma, with a big alcohol presence. Flavour starts sweet as well - brown sugar & malt - and develops some sharp, tart notes as it warms. Finish is long, with notes of vanilla and almond. A simple but well made example of the style.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2005
Bottle, shared in good company near the end of a solid tasting session. Strong alcohol in aroma - probably a little overpowering. Dark brown appearance. Strong taste as expected - sweet malt, simple barley wine taste, but only a little bitterness near the end. Certainly a sweet barleywine, but also quite simple. A good effort.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Bottle (12oz) - shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc at tupalevs domicile - provided by tuplaev. Poured a dark, hazy amber-brown with a small, diminishing very light brown head. Aroma - alcohol, burned caramel, toasted rich malt, some hops, certainly yeast, and strangely, mushrooms! Taste was spicy dark malt, prunes, yeast(s), a little hop-bitter with warming - and of course, alcohol was in the house, but not stroppy. An average linger, and perhaps a tad alcohol-harsh and one-dimensional, but a barley wine and freakin proud of it. Of the b-wines Ive had, its in the upper third.

"F**k that Jimmy jam stuff, lets open these!" - Blankboy decides that the can of Yankee Jim should not be our first priority. <P> Dark brown with a very thin tan head. Sweet brown sugar aroma, malt and a hint of alcohol. Flavour is sweet, malty, brown sugar, touch of molasses. Dry finish, with some hops coming out in the aftertaste. Medium oily palate. Simplistic at times, but very drinkable. Underrated in my opinion. A beer that shows that it trusts you. ;)

Big malty flavors, including licorice and chocolate, are balanced with a moderate hop profile. a little on the bitter side.

12 oz bottle at Pop the Cap fundraiser. Im not a huge fan of barleywines, but this is probably my favorite of the ones Ive had. It isnt so overwhelmingly sweet or malty. Looking forward to more once NC gets past its antiquainted beer laws.

bottle. I really am enjoying this barley wine (as a write) it poured a rich brown-amber with a beautiful tan head. great aroma of the flavors it presented in its taste rum, brandy, caramel, raisin, plums, slight alcoholic tinge on the end of the tounge arises... very round and warm, a soothing, relaxing, warming beer. I enjoyed this as much as SNs bigfoot.

I dont think that it stands out among Barley Wines but I found it to be very enjoyable and delicious. I would certainly drink more of these. I looked at the graphs and it seems to be trending higher so perhaps they have tweaked the recipe. Very dark, no head. Inviting spicy aroma and taste. The spices and flavuors seemed to be more nutmeg like and less cinamon.
