Style | ABV
A beer style perhaps lost in antiquity, our rye wine closely resembles an English-style barley wine but with a spicy/peppery note from rye, this beer is dark copper in color with a full body, high residual malty sweetness, high complexity of alcohols and fruity-ester characters balanced by low bitterness and extraordinary alcohol content, some English-variety hop aroma and flavor is present, and caramel, dark toffee and vinous/sherry-like aromas and flavors dominate. Drink it now or let it age.

had this on tap and liked it so much i had to take a growler home. this years batch is 11% abv if i remember correctly. a nice fingers worth of tan creamy head sits atop a ruby brown body. head recedes to a thin ring and the body clears up after the beer has a minute to settle in. taste and smell are very sweet at first with a big malty presence. the rye quickly becomes dominate in this drink. the big abv is not hidden, but not overpowering either. mouthfeel is thick with decent carbonation. very smooth with a touch of stickieness that the alochol washes away. left with a warming feeling in my belly. overall i really like this offering. not the best rye beer i've had, but a pretty good barleywine none the less.

Had this on 2012-10-09 in Normal, IL at the brew pub
A - Moderately clear amber-brown with 1/2-finger tan head and good lacing.
S - Spicy rye malt, light citrus. Not real strong but food aromas were present.
T - Rich and sweet rey malt, spicy like a rum cake. Alcohol sweetness. Toffee. Light sour for balance. Rich tasting and delicious.
M - Medium-heavy body and light carbonation. Moderately-thick and creamy. Fairly sticky/cloying but in an appropriate way.
O - Basically a spicy barleywine. A nice change-of-pace. I dig it.

Current version listed at 10% ABV.
A - Poured a cloudy, burgundy color with a small, khaki colored head of foam. It left patchy trails of lace on the glass.
S - It smelled of rye malt and sweet floral notes.
T - It tasted very malty and sweet. Taste of rye bread come through with a spicy hop bite.
M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A full bodied ale with a fairly dry finish.
O - This was a very good English Barleywine. I like the rye in a barleywine.

After sampling a few of the current beers, I decided on this one. It was served in a large brandy snifter type glass. The pour was probably about 12 oz., and it was pretty cold.
The bartender had mentioned that they used the same rye malt that they use in their Baldock Rye IPA. It's color was a dark reddish brown, not much light got through. There was ample off-white foam, with some decent lacing. Aroma was faint, some rye earthiness, but not sweet like I might have expected. Not sure if the temperature had something to do with this, it was sitting there warming for 1/2 hour during dinner, and didn't improve much. Taste was dry and papery malt, moderately bitter, a mild spicy element from the rye or possibly from the hops used, not much hop flavor that I could positively identify. The feel was medium, thankfully not a booze monster, but it was very drying. I finished it, but probably wouldn't seek it out again. Maybe a touch more sweetness and hop character would fine tune it just right.
