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.

Bottle. Opaque orange body, minimal head. Sweet aroma with dried pineapple and some phenols. Sweet caramel taste with more dried fruit (pineapple, apricot, white raisins). Finish has a warming alcohol burn and some more fructose-like sweetness. Great winter sipper.

Aroma is caramel, dark fruit, a hint of bubblegum. Taste is mostly caramel, some dried fruit notes, alcoholic warmth at the end. Good beer.

This barleywine is brewed in the European style, malty rather than hoppy. Very rich and caramely with Notes of dark fruits. very low carbonation. Seemed to mellow as it approached room temperature ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ladna barwa, taki ciemny bursztyn lub mocna herbata. Piana szybko znika. W smaku ciemne owoce, wyrazna slodycz karmelowa. Troche jak w Quardupel. W smaku gladkie, dobrze ulozone, oleiste, alkohol dobrze ukryty. Przyjemnie sie pije.

ippopotamo36 (2496) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 29, 2017
Tap at 4:20, Rome-Italy. Dark and cloudy amber with chestnut skin highlights, regular and tick off-white foam. Nose: dates, under spirit cherries, red fruit. Mouth: caramel, ripoedvred fruit, alcohol is quite there. Clean and rich on the cherry side.

Bebum (1060) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 25, 2017
Crystal clear copper color, fine bubbles creating a lasting, tall head. Very heavy body, well covered by lots of flavor, extreme heat but low carbonation, lingering palate with a candy finish. Intensely bittersweet, very well balanced not only by bitterness but for a sharp acidity snd alcohol. Hops and malt fight for predominance but neither wins, we do. Caramel, blood orange pith, herbal. Fulfills all expectations for an American barley wine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy dark brown pour with just a tan ring on top. Aroma tells me I’ll enjoy - cooked sugar, dark fruits, and a hint of booze. Flavor follow similarly but more intense all around, very sweet from start to aftertaste and boozy with some woodiness in the finish. A little less alcohol burn and more dark fruit flavors would have ramped this up considerably. Still a very solid offering for the style. I’ll have it again for sure.

Bottle, thanks Christina! Dark fruit aroma with notes of caramel and a bit of booze. Pours dark caramel colored with a nearly nonexistent off white head that has poor retention and lacing. Starts with sweet dark fruit flavors of dates, figs and raisins with a full body and luscious mouthfeel. Finishes very smooth with some caramel malt and a hint of booze. Really nice barleywine.

light malty aroma. red and clear in color with no head. taste is of darker caramel malts, some residual sweetness.

Franckg (1816) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 17, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2016 Bouteille datée du 25/02/2016, bue après près de 9 mois. Robe acajou claire avec un mince cerne de mousse et quelques particules en suspension. Arômes de sucre d’orge et baies confites principalement, datte, malt caramelisé, orange sanguine, sirop de poire, eau d’érable et soupçon de café. En bouche, sucre d’orge sirupeux, baies confites (mûres et framboises surtout), café moyennement corsé, datte cuite, raisin bleu, malt caramelisé épais. Finale où des saveurs grillées et de cacao prennent les devant. Légère touche houblonnée d’agrumes à la toute fin. Texture liquoreuse et corps moyen à rond. Excellente vin d’orge anglais venant du territoire américain.
