Poured amber brown, simple, caramel, malty, little dark fruit, little alcohol, slight hops. hayduke (5731) - Eureka, California, USA - FEB 20, 2009
This one is from the old Youngs Ram Brewery that was in London and has been aging in my cellar for four year and was a year past the "drink me" date on the bottle. Poured dark brown tending toward black with a fat tan head and thick gluey lacing rings. Nose of ripe fruit and floral hops. Rich and creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is caramel malts with good hop bitterness. This one aged well and was a delight to drink. puggy211 (712) - cordova, Tennessee, USA - JAN 27, 2009
Very nice. A strong, bitter flavor followed by a warm, pretty long finish. A bit more carbonated than I like, though, and the alcohol content seems a bit low for a barleywine. That1Guy (2240) - Colorado, USA - DEC 13, 2008
Crushed with Jakebra. Sweet and poopy on the nose. The nice outweighs the nast slightly. Flavor and mouthfeel are rough and scratchy. Dont recommend it. Them limeys dont know barley wines apparently. daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 29, 2008
Bottle from Vrown. Brown pour, very small head. Aroma is syrupy and sweet wtih some dried fruit and booze. Flavor is sweet and fruity with a syrupy quality that is a bit over the top...but still good.

Decent barleywine with a candy like flavor and a nice smell of fruit and flowers. Very low alcohol for the style and goes down mighty easy. elihapa (1554) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - OCT 10, 2008
From bottle bought at Bob’s Liquors in CT, part of beer tasting. Appears a dark brown with little head or lacing. Aroma of dark fruit (prunes), bourbon, nuts, and light hops. Flavor was an interesting mixture of malt, dark fruit, and chocolate. Finish is long and palate is smooth. Overall, a nice, solid brew. Alcohol was not as high as other BW I’ve had, but this managed to hold its own in terms of flavor. WeeHeavySD (3387) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 27, 2008
500ml, i’ve had in the cellar for something like 2 years. Pours dark brown with a tan ring. Nose is sweet and ok. Taste is sweet with nice caramel notes. Decent. lumpsowers (288) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 23, 2008
Foamy head, nice lacing, coppery dark brown color. Light malty aroma. Medium mouthfeel, high malt dominates, with chocolate aftertaste. Hops is soft and floral, alcoholic after. Good, but not "Devilishly Good". danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 21, 2008
Getting notebook online. Bottle. Pours cloudy cider brown with no real head. Not much smell. A bitey fruity acid taste that is smooth. Very relaxing strong beer. Great for the evening.
