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).

Clear medium brown pour under a small off-white head. Candy aroma. Sweet flavor with a bit of hop bitterness. Some dryness in the finish. O.K.

7oz bottle. Much darker than a lot of barleywines. Lots of malt and dark fruit aromas - taste is slightly better than the smell. Licorice and fig with a nice hoppy bite. I’d like to see what some time does to one of these.

Not a fan of barley wines in general, this typifies why with the alcohol playing against the hops and malts and making it taste too much too much.

Rasmus40 (21697) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 21, 2011
Clear orange brown with an off-white head. Aroma is very sweet caramel, malty, sugary and alcoholic. Flavor is very sweet. Finish is sweet and warming alcohol. Too sweet. 181010

Koelschtrinker (21371) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 25, 2011
Süßer und tiefgründiger Malzantrunk mit nur leichten Röstnoten. Die Süße wird zum Mittelteil hin zuckrig, der Alkohol schmeckbar, das Malz aber nur wenig intensiver. Die Süße hält an, zum Ende wirkt das Bier unausgewogen. Insgesamt aber dennoch gut. 6/11/11/9/9/10

Too much esters for my taste, like a homebrew fermented too warm - raisiny and slick mouthfeel ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fules (1342) - 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.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - OCT 19, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2004 Wonderfully malty with just the right amount of bitterness. Not quite the caliber of Old Foghorn or Old Crusty but by far this breweries finest offering. re-rate 10/19/02: Still this brewers best but this bottle i'm having is so carbonated it almost tastes frothy. It really takes away from the beer.

TAR (2781) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - APR 10, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2005 Earthy, vegetal hop aroma. Fuzzy carbonation. Osbcure malt notes rest beneath poorly concealed alcohol and overt sweetness. Lingering resinous hop finish. Dull example.

What stood out most was the huge carbonation which i didnt care for much.Alcohol hidden quite well. Not to bad.
