Beer :: Barleywine
Sampling Dates

Manufacturer: Firestone Walker
ABV: 12.5%
Fairly-roasted malt with some caramel/toffee taste as well as a certain earthiness to the underlying malt. On top of this lies some of the oak/wood flavors as well as characteristics of chocolate and hints of vanilla. A bit of bourbon in there, too.

Anchor Old Foghorn
Manufacturer: Anchor Brewing
ABV: 8.5%
Brewed strictly according to traditional brewing methods, using only natural ingredients — water, malted barley, fresh whole hops, and yeast. Old Foghorn is based on traditional English barley wines. Highly hopped, using only Cascade hops. It is fermented with a true top-fermenting ale yeast. Carbonation is produced by an entirely natural process called "bunging," which produces champagne-like bubbles. Our "barleywine ale" is dry-hopped with additional Cascade hops while it ages in our cellars.

Bells Wheat Love
Manufacturer: Bells Brewing
ABV: 8.0%
Bell’s Wheat Love Ale, is made with the eight yeasts of Wheat eight and is a strong, but relatively light colored, “wheatwine.”

Brooklyn Monster ale
Manufacturer: Brooklyn Brewery
ABV: 10.8%
Brewed from three mashes of heirloom British malt and spiced with aromatic American Willamette, Cascade and Fuggle hops. Copper in color, an aroma redolent of sherry, citrusy hops and fruit and has a soft, warming, complex palate. Brewed from december to March.

Dogfish Olde School
Manufacturer: Dogfish Head
ABV: 15.0%
Brewed from 100% Maris Otter pale ale malt, a blend of fine hops and conditioned on dates and figs. User Instructions: open bottle, pour contents into two snifters. Strobgest Barleywine in the world.

Dominion Millenium Oak Aged
Manufacturer: Old Dominion
ABV: 11.4%
Ruby-red color with a wide range of complex flavors. Malt and sherry predominate.

Firestone Walker Sucaba
Manufacturer: Firestone Walker
ABV: 13.0%
IBU: 42
Big boozy bourbon and American oak aromas combined with soft chocolate malty undertones. Complex malt flavors framed in oak, with hints of dark chocolate, vanilla, tobacco, coconut and just a touch of dark cherry. This is definitely a sipping beer, best served in a brandy snifter. This ale pairs well with dark chocolate and sturdy cheeses.

Flying Dog Horn Dog
Manufacturer: Flying Dog Brewery
ABV: 10.2%
IBU: 45
Big malty flavors, including licorice and chocolate, are balanced with a moderate hop profile. Brewed with copious amounts of prized malts and flaked oats, the Barley Wine is so strong that it has to be aged for several months before we can bottle it. Like a fine wine, it will continue to improve with age up to 2 years after bottling (If kept cool).

Founders Nemesis
Manufacturer: Founders Brewery
ABV: 12.0%
IBU: 100
The 2010 release of Nemesis is best described as “a dark barley wine that pours black with a subtle mahogany hue. Brewed with 5 malts and no shortage of hops for a pleasantly bitter booming flavor. Roasty and toasty with a multitude of tastes that melts on your tongue”.

Founders Sweet Repute
Manufacturer: Founders Brewery
ABV: 12.6%
It’s one-hundred percent barrel aged in maple syrup bourbon barrels and bourbon barrels over the course of sixteen months, then blended using carefully calculated ratios for the ultimate final product. The resulting 12.6% ABV liquid pours a bright warm russet with a stubborn ivory head and an intoxicatingly sweet nutty aroma.

Green Flash Barleywine
Manufacturer: Green Flash
ABV: 10%
California Barleywine

Heavy Seas Below Deck
Manufacturer: Clipper City

English style barleywine - rich, malty, and opulent. Great at time of release but will benefit from bottle aging for many years to come.

Limited release. Insanity is made by aging Blithering Idiot Barleywine in oak bourbon casks. This incredible combination creates a mélange of flavors from rich malts, raisons, and dates to oak, vanilla, and bourbon.

Stone Old Guardian
Manufacturer: Stone Brewing
ABV: 11.1%
Pours a nice cloudy copper color with a nice head that leaves good lacing. Fruity malts and some hops in the background. Some bready yeast also comes through. Surprisingly no alcohol in the smell, which is impressive for an 11.1% brew. Some nice dark fruits up front with definite malts, followed by a pleasant hop bitterness.

Troegs Flying Mouflan
Manufacturer: Troegs
ABV: 9.3%
starts with an exemplary malt backbone. Toffee, caramel and red fruits (even apples) create a fat rich heavy body. Big, bold, rich, complex, well balanced and amazingly easy to drink.

Weyerbacher Blithering Idiot
Manufacturer: Weyerbacher Brewing Co.
ABV: 11.1%
This barleywine is made in the British tradition of balanced hearty ales. Blithering Idiot is a deep-copper ale with intense malty notes of dates and figs on the palate that follows a pleasurably malty aroma to your taste buds.
