Sweeter barleywine. No carbonation. Decent offering, but not for everyone.

Poured into teku glass. Very nice dark amber/red colour with little carbonation and tiny bubbles. A bit hazy. The head dissipates very quickly. Smells just great! Reminds of honey, caramel, dates and molasses with the alcohol hidden very well. Maybe a tiny bit of leather in the background.
Tastes sweet, with dark caramel upfront and a slight bitterness at the end, which somehow survives in the aftertaste. Feels syrupy with medium body and low carbonation. Absolutely fantastic!

A: Brilliant copper with a tinge of red, no carbonation, a very faint haze, topped with a half finger of sulfur yellow head.


S: Strange almost vomit like scent, Italian proscutto all the way or Serrano Ham, burnt sugar, crème brulee, light alcohol scent, light fruitiness.


T: Crème brulee, burnt sugar, the same strange proscutto flavor is light, thick brandy alcohol, throat burn.


M: Thick syrupy texture, very low carbonation.


O: I got this on Wishbeer, Thailand, drank in Kunming on January 9th, 2015. Its that time of year to have this one, especially on the day of the first snow in our city! Memories of having barley wine with my bro in Canada this around this time of year.

Whoa! this is a Wiley monster. Poured with a traditional tiny fine off-white head, a little lace and a hazy/cloudy dark honey amber color. Aroma is wet grain, malt, figs, a bit of citrus, a hint of yeast. flavor is like aroma but the first thing that jumps out is the sweet tartness. The citrus is an interesting twist for Barley Wine. It pretty much Hides most of the Malt. The body is perfect. Alcohol is well hidden. This is a good ass Beer, By cracky.
