COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rye Barleywine Style Ale. The unicorn may have finally found its match in Death Incarnate. But hold your horned horses, because the unicorn lives to rye another day! What a sickle joke! But, we arent tricking you, this barley wine is a real treat, with a rich malt skeleton and a more than paranormal amount of hops. If youre going to harvest soul-y one beer this season, dont fear the reaper...

Habanero (4253) - Tranbjerg, Denmark, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2016
Bottled. Pours cloudy deep amber with nearly no head. Aroma of toasted caramel, toffee, rye, citrus, orange zest and pine. Sweet flavor that ends up being more dry and bitter. A very nice hoppy Barley. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Thechasm442 (856) - Chicago heights, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2016
Murky brown with an average beige head and decent lacing. Aroma of rye, toasted malts, pine, and mild baking spices. Taste is malty and sweet up front with pine, mild citrus, and lots of rye. Toffee in the finish. Thicker and sweeter with a little dryness.

Pedrens (219) - SPAIN - MAR 25, 2016
Creo q es de los mejores BW q he tomado. Dulce lo justo sin empalagar, ingente cantidad de lpulos para compensar. Madera, malta, cola, sirope, algo de caf, herbal, y resinado y por supuesto ese cereal mgico q es el puto centeno. Un pelin acuoso para el estilo, nada pegajoso. Final largo complejo, en el q perdura al fianl del todo la madera.Cojonudo BW!

DuchessOfIowa (161) - Iowa, USA - JAN 28, 2016
Dark chestnut and cherry hue that is beautiful finished by a tight & thin white head. Caramel and honey sweetness on the beginning that has a subtle spicey rye and roasted note. Good little heat flash at the end to remind you this is a big one. This is a fantastic barleywine plus I am a sucker for marketing as I love the Nina, unicorn vs. whatever theme.

On tap at twin anchors. Dark brown with some red. Pretty good head. Lots of sugar in the front with honey. Hop on the back. This is excellent. No heat at all. I would never guess this is double digit abv. Outstanding.

650ml bottle. Murky, dark amber colour with small to average, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, beige-khaki head. Sweet-ish, sugary caramel malty aroma, notes of candied citrus fruit, orange, bitter orange, orange zest, hints of almond, marzipan. Taste is bitter hoppy, caramel malty basis, a sugary touch, hints of candied orange zest, some almond. Very clean and easy going.

Tmoney99 (13780) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy ruby amber color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy dark rye malt, alcohol and hop aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy dark bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy dark bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a complex solid beer.
