Thumbprint Series: 2012 Barley Wine,
New Glarus Brewing Co.
New Glarus, WI

They Say: “Our 2012 Barley Wine bridges continents of style, a harmonious creation of Diploma Master Brewer Daniel Carey. He personally chose the hop fields that were harvested for this powerful beast of a brew. Styrian Golding, Willamette, Columbia, and Sterling with bold citrus and resin notes. All perfectly balanced with toasty graham cracker flavors of floor malted barley. Savor this very big beer at 45° F and it will reward you with an open embrace.”

We Say: An exciting beer that wakes up your senses, New Glarus’ Barley Wine is immediately striking with its lighter-than-average clear honey color and erupting hop aroma. Alcohol is present, but pine and mango from the hops give this beer a bold tropical fruit flavor that blurs the line between American barleywine and double IPA. The rather bitter, medium body lingers delicately, urging you to take another sip and enjoy its depth.

Blithering Idiot,
Weyerbacher Brewing Co.
Easton, PA

They Say: “Our 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. The finish is warm and fruity, and begs for the next sip. Enjoy Blithering Idiot in a brandy snifter or wine glass with full-flavored meats and cheeses, or as an after-dinner drink.”

We Say: Another English barleywine, this clear orange beer caps its gorgeous color with a foamy off-white head. Behind the inviting appearance is a unique aroma that reminds us of crushing malt for home brewing. Sweet caramel and big alcohol (when swirled) are undercut by a musty, vegetal scent that seems (thankfully) absent in the flavor. Earthy hops, orange zest and Muscat grapes put the “wine” into barleywine. Finishing sweet and full-bodied, Blithering Idiot is a dessert beer that, without caution, will turn even the burliest of men into a blithering idiot, as it tops 11% ABV.

Noir Black Belgian Barleywine Style Ale PDF Print E-mail

Noir Black Belgian Barleywine Style Ale,
Sand Creek Brewing Co.
Black River Falls, WI

They Say: “This beer is a creation of our Lead Brewer Nate Peck. … Four different malts, three varieties of hops, Belgian dandi sugar and yeast. 75 IBU's, dark, and delicious.”

We Say: Sand Creek’s new beer is quite a style mash-up that left us a bit confused. A “Black Belgian Barleywine,” Noir desires to be poured gently as it has a tall, light khaki head rising above the dark ruby body. The aroma opens with a bold amount of floral hops followed by a subdued plumb fruit ester from the timid Belgian yeast; its “blackness” only arriving in flavor in the form of light cocoa and a hint of coffee. Light alcohol flavor underlines the large hop presence that carries from flavor to a persistent dry finish compounded by bitterness. Not particularly deep, we remained intrigued by this well-balanced conglomerate of styles.

Old Foghorn® Anchor Brewing Co.
San Francisco, CA

They Say: “The malty sweetness, fruitiness, unique hop aroma and high original gravity of Old Foghorn® Barleywine Style Ale is to beer much as port is to wine. Old Foghorn® is brewed based on traditional English barleywine methods. It is highly hopped, fermented with a true top-fermenting ale yeast, carbonated by a natural process called "bunging" to produce champagne-like bubbles, and dry-hopped with additional Cascade hops while it ages in our cellars. Made only from “first wort,” the rich first runnings of an all-malt mash, three mashes are required to produce just one barleywine brew.”

We Say: A style classic, and possibly the group’s favorite, Anchor’s Old Foghorn® is an English barleywine that pours a clear bronzy amber with a thick, tight off-white head that retains its deep and complex aroma well. Fruity undertones of apricot and raisin give way to toasty malt and an abundant-yet-mellow alcohol aroma reminiscent of 12-year scotch. Dried prune and fig follow through into the flavor with a biscuit-turned-caramel malt profile that lends well to the dry but sweet, smooth feel of the beer. While Old Foghorn® feels a bit unrefined young, this beer matures quite gracefully! Try aging some bottles for yourself.
