Calling this a barleywine is the same thing as calling an extra pale ale a double ipa. Theres just not much malty complexity or hoppy flavors here at all. Bland almost to the point of tasting like a macro lager or Sam Adams Boston Ale. Too many off-flavors here as well. I didnt bother taking detailed notes on this one as it was just not worth the effort.

Reddish brown that looks purdy, with a maltyhop aroma. Then the taste...*ptooey!* Wicked watery without much in the flavor department.

Bottled on 06/04... Poured a dark crimson with a white bubbly head and light lacing. Musty fruitiness, apples and sweet malts in the aroma. Roasty, sweet malts, nuts, fruits, and a little pepper in the taste. The heartburn reminded me there was a little alcohol here, but not much. This was not a very complex barleywine.

Light caramel malt aroma. Dark amber-brown with two finger tan head that recedes to a fine cover. Bitter sweet chocolate with light roastiness. Tangy raisin towards the finish. Some cardboard-like oxidation noticeable. Body is a bit light for style. Mouthfeel fairly simple. Overall, its really a bit plain but not bad. Bottle.

I guess Im out of step him. Dark brown small head. Aroma is some what similiar to an English old ale, but will some chocolate. Flavor is chocolate, with twig like hops, slightly dry and bitter finish. As a barleywine it is different, but enjoyable never the less. Thanks, DirtyMike

Dark orange to brown. Wood apple nose. Apple again in the taste. Not as complex or flavorful as expected. No alcohol taste at all.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2004
Pours a brownish/mohogany color with an off-white head. Kind of a hoppy/yeasty smell. Nothing like any barleywine I've had. Taste like a yeasty pale. Good beer, mediocre barleywine.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2005 Not strongly hopped enough for a Barley Wine although it could be called a srong ale and do well. Other raters have mentioned its "watery" flaovor and I agree. An OK beer.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2005 Brewer said this stuff is brewed in Morrisville, VT in a 7 barrel system. He thought it very important to mention to me twice, so here it is. Also fair to mention there are 6 types of malt. I know I dont care. I do know I didnt like it. Maybe use less types of malt and more quality ingredients. Taste more like a brown ale.
