For a barley wine beer I was not expecting a smooth tasteful beer I could enjoy to the last drop. This beer has defied my barley wine perspective making it one of my favorite redhook ales of all time

I am not usually a barleywine fan. And here comes the but... this one doesnt over alcohol me and I can still taste the original beer! Granted I did not age this three years and that might change my rating but this works for me right here and now. Grapefruit taste from start to finish. Nice sweetness that lingers after the bitterness leaves. The best of the limited releases from Redhook.

Decent head for a barleywine of varying sized bubbles that surprisingly does not last all that long. Sweet caramel aroma with lots of malts, brown sugar, ethanol and a bit of smoke. Color is a nice crimson orange. Flavor is loaded with sweet malts, caramel, a bit of spicyness and some peat. A very earthy barlewine. Pretty noticable alcohol kick and presence. Lingering smoked malts and caramel at the finish. Super smooth going down. I like this barleywine a lot.

Bomber. Light reddish brown in appearance with a half-inch of foamy head. Lots of caramelized sugar and malt aromas as well as brown sugar and rum. The flavor starts with a heavy dose of caramel and toasted malt followed by molasses, candied figs, resiny hops and alcohol. The mouthfeel is a little syrupy with medium carbonation and a sweet, boozy finish. Overall, I would say its a solid Barley Wine with a fairly smooth blend of dark sugar and malt flavors. Its good to see Redhook finally venture into the land of strong beers.

Tap at Amesbury Ale House. Pours deep amber into a shaker. Off-white head recedes to hug rim. Orange citrus aromas. Well balanced with fruity citrus and dark caramel. Lasting toffee and hop finish. ABV very well hidden.

BelgianBeerGal (3985) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2010
22oz bottle from Vegas. Pours a clear, copper-bronze color with a medium khaki head and foamy, sticky lacing. Big, sweet aroma with some caramel and hops with maybe some cherry? Pretty classic barley wine flavor but maybe a little thin. The bitterness is strong and leaves a little tingle to your lips. Okay

on tap @ Red Hook brew pub. Pours a dark copper red color with a decent amount of head with large bubbles. The taste is bright and fruity at first sort of like a tart pear, or apple. Would not have guessed the alcohol content was so high, yet it does have a slight warming finish.I drank the 2010 yet would love to try some of the aged bottles. I dont know a lot about this style of beer. Im getting ready to try a few more to get an idea of what its all about.

22oz bottle. Pours a deep dark amber. Slight head. Aroma is slightly spicy. Taste is smooth. A slightly caramel and maybe banana taste but definitely some kind of fruit-hop taste in there. Alcohol is well hidden. A lot going on but very smooth. A nice beer.

madvike (3230) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 15, 2010
Bottle - Clear brown pour with a small white head. Really sweet with a decent amount of sharp alcohol. Pretty sweet taste, too. Caramel, with some sharp alcohol on the finish. Malty, but really not that much flavor. Just not sure what this one was trying to achieve.

Amber with a lasting off-white head. Heavy malt aroma with citrus hops, white sherry, alcohol. Sweet malty flavour with warm alcohol and citrus hops
