COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At Weyerbacher, we prefer to brew things true to European style guidelines, so our barley wine is definitely on the malty side, without being overly sweet. Notes of date or perhaps fig on the palate follow a pleasurably malty aroma to your taste buds. The finish is warm and fruity, and begs for the next sip.

Amber color, tan head, light lacing. Nose of creamy malts, strong alcohol and plenty of fruity hop notes. The flavor is nicely balanced, kind of sweet & fruity but its a little too course in the finish. Nice, spunky and fruity, its still quite a good barleywine. Near the same as bigfoot with a touch less hops.

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2005
Bottle. Pours a cloudy brown with fairly creamy tan head. Aroma is rich and spicy with plums and raisins, sweet malts, some caramel, and rum sweetness. Taste is sweet malts, dark fruit (plums, cherries), with some cherry showing up right before the swallow. Balance is ok, but slightly underhopped for a barleywine, and finishes with fairly mild alcohol burn. Very nice.

spikee (96) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 28, 2005
Ultra sweet, fruity aroma. Pours a heavy, syrupy ruby/amber with zero head or lacing and a whole mess of tasty particles floating in the mix. Sweet, without being undrinkably so, and figgy taste with a heavy dose of malt. Palate is clean and oily at first with a blast of fruity fig late. Enough of an alcohol kick to let you know its there, but it never gets in the way. As far as barley wines go, this is very drinkable.

Dough77 (821) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 24, 2005
Top notch barleywine, very tasty til the last drop. Nice ruby color, taste full of darker fruits to tag along with a nice caramel taste and malt touch. Just sweet enough without going overboard, very very good.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - FEB 21, 2005
Good sweet aroma, some caramel. Dark ruby body with no head. Rich sweet flavor, caramel, with good alcohol presence.

IslandHaole (1228) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - FEB 19, 2005
A dark magenta hue with a small creamy beige head. Very rich & malty with some caramel, fruit and floral notes as well. Vinous & earthy but very sweet. Thick nectar with a nice warming follow. A sweet aftertaste with alcohol and just a bit of floral hop bitterness. A very luxurious creamy feel coats your mouth. A nice snowy evening sipper. Thanks Belle!

At first pour, this beer is quite unassuming. You are soon in for a treat! The beer appears deep red with a nice creamy head. Aroma is a quite strong and malty. Flavor is exemplary of the barley wine style being warmly strong, maltly, and alcoholic. Finishes sweetly. Name says it all!

asheft (3026) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2005
Clear reddish copper, with a quickly dissipating fog covering that becomes a wispy sheet. Gummi-worm aroma with fruit candy and subtle spicy hops. Very sweet and aromatic flavour dominated by grape and candy with a little bitterness. Medium body with adequate carbonation.
