One great brew to try and buy. I donít know what I was expecting from this. Maybe something like the other Barley Wine I tried. It was not like it at all. It was better......way better. This is a highly drinkable brew. Very smooth on all fronts. Well balanced and time was taken to craft this. I couldnít tell by the packaging the ABV% but itís smoothness led me to believe it was around 7-8% when itís 10.5%.....definitely unexpected. Itís either that or I donít know the rule to Barley Wines. A great brown/red depending light angle.....also a strong hint of barley and malts with some fruit? Hops are non-existent in flavor but present in effect...I think. The head is light brown to tan/white and medium. Pretty bubbly and thick. Very nice on all edges and beats the other Barley Wine (ale style) on my list hands down! A great trick to pull on someone who likes a certain %ABV by prejudice and not taste as the % is not labled anywhere on box or bottle label so maybe this is the brew to get others to like the ímicrosí. Not trying but I found another 5 for my list of brews....also a great buy for the price! Anshlar (4) - ITALY - MAY 25, 2011 does not count
Best winter ale iíve ever tasted. Malty aroma, Red appearance. Sweet-sour taste. Best flying dogís product. thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2006
Bottle at The White Horse, Parsonís Green. Chestnut brown with a very small head, that is nonetheless quite stable. Sweet aroma of raisins and dried fruits. Flavours are cellar-like and surprisingly dry finish; raisins and dark fruit throughout, yet also very good bitterness. Full-bodied and rather soft. An explosion of flavours, yet still harmonious. A masterpiece of a beer. TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUN 9, 2002
Deep amber color. Wonderful aroma and flavor. This is definately one of my new favorite beers. ChrisPants (317) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 4, 2005
Impressive, big time, considering my expectations. Deep dark ruby rad, damn near black. Flavor sweet caramel, perfectly balanced hops, hint of vanilla, sour cherries. Palate is smooth but a touch malty. Aftertaste frutiy, sweet, again with the perfect hop balance. Very nice.

Has a skimpy head and slightly spicy aroma with a dark amber color. Tastes sweet with multiple flavors in the finish. Not a bitter beer. BockMan99 (20) - lawrence, Kansas, USA - AUG 27, 2002
Was a bit lighter looking then I was expecting for an English Strong Ale, but what it lacked in color it more then made up for in taste. Has a nice bold smooth taste with no after-taste. 6re99 (19) - Oak Ridge, Tennessee, USA - FEB 20, 2006

Flying Dog has done it again. The K-9 cruiser is a great hoppy beer that goes down clean and crisp. Has a nice deep amber color and a strong wheat taste. Has an initial sweetness that ends with a great bitter taste that stays on the tongue without being overwhelming.
