21st Amendment Lower De Boom (Aged One Year)
21st Amendment Lower De Boom is an American Barleywine. I have decided to do a four year experiment with this beer, since these little 8.4 oz cans should be easy to cellar. Originally canned in February of 2013 I drank the first can on April 1st 2013. I will drink one […]

AleSmith Old Numbskull
AleSmith Old Numbskull is an American Barleywine. Although there is no bottle date, my notes indicate that this  is the 2012 vintage. I don’t have any reason to lie to myself so I will assume that is true! This is a really fantastic smelling barleywine, I’m getting some rich toffee, molasses, […]

Swamp Head / Cigar City Brewing Roosevelt (Aged 2 Years)
Lee and I shared a bottle of Swamp Head / Cigar City Brewing Roosevelt a little over a year ago. That bottle had about a years worth of age on it and was a bit of a disappointment. From my original review: The beer starts mostly just hoppy and boozy with […]

Dogfish Head Olde School
Dogfish Head Olde School is an American Barleywine. This review is for the 2012 vintage aged just over one year. This just might be the most straight forward beer these guys do. Extreme in the fact that it’s a big 15% ABV, but the flavor is amazingly straight forward for a […]

Green Flash Barleywine
This review is for the 2012 vintage of Green Flash Barleywine, I had this at somewhere over a year old. Nothing really mind blowing here, but it is a solid barleywine that has aged well in the past year or so. Expected flavors of caramel and toffee sweetness which are […]

Central Waters Bourbon Barrel Barleywine 2012
Central Waters Bourbon Barrel Barleywine is aged for a full year in bourbon barrels. This vintage was bottled in January of 2012, opened Mother’s Day 2013. Aged about 1 year and 5 months longer in the bottle. I received this as a trade extra and I want to say thanks, but […]

Mad River Brewing Co. John Barleycorn
When a friend tells you that you can grab anything from their fridge, you should take them up on it. First, always conduct a quick confirmation. “Anything?,” you ask. “Anything,” they reply. A quick scan of the icebox revealed a barleywine I’d never heard of before. So, out it came. […]

Great Divide Old Ruffian
Great Divide Old Ruffian is an American Barleywine. The 2013 vintage is a winter seasonal and was available from January – March. The bottle date printed on this is a smeary mess, so I don’t know for sure how old it is. I know I have been holding onto it for […]

Jailhouse Hard Time
Jailhouse Hard Time is an American Barleywine. This bottle has been aged about one year, no bottle date, I’m just guessing from when I bought it. This is a pretty solid barleywine, nothing out of the ordinary, but it was enjoyed by all at the table with dessert as the last […]
