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).

SG111 (2034) - New York, USA - NOV 13, 2016
Bottled. 2015 vintage. Pours murky brown chestnut color. White tan head. Aroma is fig, dark fruit, plum, raisin, some boozy notes, sugar, caramel, bready. Flavor is fig, plum, dark fruit, molasses, bready, full bodied, sugar sweetness, some mild bitter hop notes in the finish. Very English style, sort of has some Belgian notes in that there’s dark fruit and sugar sweetness. Not too Barleywine-ish for me, maybe more English strong ale quality? Hard to say where I’d place this. I’d say Barleywine is fair enough. Decent, not my favorite Barleywine (a bit sweet) but still quite good.

javiercrasher (644) - Granada, SPAIN - OCT 18, 2016
Impresionante aspecto. Espuma beige, densa y duradera. Fruta madura y barrica de vino en nariz. Buen cuerpo. En boca acaramelada, licorosa, equilibrada y llena de matices. Dulce, sin presencia de los 10 grados. Ha evolucionado muy bien durante la guarda. De las mejores barley wine que he probado. @Botella. BB 2015/01/09

Horn dog pours a deep, murky root beer brown body that has many small floaters, the thin tan cap didnt leave hardly any lace. Aromas of dark sweet fruits like fig, plum, cherries and alcohol all showing up. Flavors of malts, bread, with slight fruit hints showing up, it was very sweet with an alcohol finish. Although it did have many flavors none stayed too long (no aftertaste), it wasnt as big or complex as other barleywines but that in itself isnt a bad thing. This might be a good ’starter’ for folks trying this style for the first time. Overall i thought it was pretty good and worth a try, but i probably wont get it again. Originally rated on 11/25/08.

Hyvin niukka, mitätön vaahto. Punertavan ruskea olut, haisee hiivalle ja maltaiselle. Erittäin makea ja imelä olut, vain pieninä annoksina. Makean katkera jälkimaku. Maistuu sahdille.

Jeg forventer en god oplevelse når den står på bygvin, eller barley wine. Jeg kan ikke finde det helt store der adskiller den her fra andre barley wine, intens smag, fyldig og let spritet. En rigtig barley wine!

Darwenus (1159) - Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2016
Pours a deep, copper brown with very little foam. The aroma is lots of sweet stuff; honey, vanilla, molasses, pecans. The flavor is really rich and sweet. All of the sweet notes from the aroma are right up front, and then there’s a tingle from the hops at the end. One of the better Flying Dog beers I’ve had.

kermis (14567) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2016
Bottle shared, around 7 years old. Hazy brown with a ring tan head. Aroma of rich overripe dark fruits, caramel, toffee, molasses, raisins and malt. Flavour is heavy sweet and above moderate bitter. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. This one has aged pretty graciously.

3.5
beertholomeus (1814) - California, USA - APR 13, 2016
Pours a burnt reddish brown color with a khaki head. Caramel, toffee, oak, raisin, molasses, toast and light chocolate aroma and flavors. Full body and average carbonation. Oak, toffee, caramel, toast and booze finish. 2015 bottle.

3.1
Fules (1376) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAR 30, 2016
Közepes, tartós, bézs színű hab, sötétbarna szín. Illata pörkölt malátás, enyhén konyakos. Ize karamellás, pörkölt jegyeket mutat, enyhe édes és savanyú felhangokkal. Sajnos az alkoholt nem sikerült elrejteni. Utóíze alkoholos, pörkölt malátás és egy picikét kesernyés.
