bb (8915) - Alamo, California, USA - NOV 17, 2004
Bottle. Ruby bronze beer with a small off-white head. Sweet malt aroma. Fruity malty flavor with a bit of honey, brown sugar, molasses, and some piney hops. Rich, thick body, but comes with some smoothness. A touch of alcohol warming. Just needs a bit more.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 13, 2004
Hazy ruby body, soapy off-white head with good lacing. Sweet caramelly goodness with strawberry touches, grapes. Hops show up in the flavor... nice and balanced bitterness. Flavor develops in the finish with butterscotch and nuts. Smooth and silky mouthfeel. It is actually very balanced to me... and I am enjoying it quite a bit.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - OCT 28, 2004
A unique barley wine. Medium mahogony color. Sweet malt, date aroma hints of nut brown. Mouthfeel is clean, light and semi-sweet. Has some assertive bitterness on the palate. Malts try to overtake the hops in the end. A pleasant beer, needs more balance and character.

3fourths (9296) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2004
Bottle - Oh man, does this stuff smell like Leviathan? The wood cask tannins, the wine grape aromas, the midium hopped silky sweet malt body. A light alcohol presence and a little bit of burnt plums and wood are present, helping this beer just radiate a beautiful nose. Thick body, but lacking a depth of flavor from the time it initially touches the lips to the time when its rolled back down the tongue and gone... the finish is where most of the flavors show up, and they are a big disappointment with respect to the aroma... some metallic hops, some rotten wood, and an overtone of chemicals... damn, I was really hoping for something different. Too hot all around...

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 29, 2004
This barley wine pours with an amber-brown body topped by a medium thick to thick, off-white head with a good amount of lacing. The aroma is sweet, caramelly and malty with a note of candy sugar, a slight underlying bitterness and a touch of grapefruit and alcohol. The flavor is slightly sweet yet bitter with a strong alcohol presence and a touch of malt and caramel. Full bodied, warming and slightly dry.

P-tor44 (886) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - SEP 16, 2004
Thick redish brown. Very sweet tastes of apples, figs, a good, hops are restrained but provide for a nice finish.

TChrome (1456) - Bedford, Texas, USA - JUN 20, 2004
Solid appearance pouring an orange/amber color with a big off white head that is well retained. Big aroma of toffee, licorice, alcohol, and hops. Mouth filling flavors of caramel, grapefruit, malt, hops, and alcohol. This is very good.

Pours a brown color and a thin head. Nice aroma of hops, caramel and alcohol. Powerfull flavors of caramel, malt and hops. Very good.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 11, 2004
Man, check this one out. Pretty darn good if you ask me. Malty sweet in the nose and taste with that same kick of sharp hops present in both. One of the better barley wines that I have had.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2004
Deep amber color with nice beige head. Pleasant aroma. Malt, sweet, fruity, perfumy. Good texture. Rich and almost syrupy. Flavor was somewhat sweet with a hint of smoke and scotch whiskey.
