A good starting place Review by Davidchicken
Rating
Very good barley wine. It was a little low on the ABV scale and tasted a little thin for my taste so I added some Jack Daniel's and some medium toasted oak cubes to give it a little oak flavor. Not a bad barley wine, just not really what I expected. That being said, I plan on making this again. (Posted on 8/19/11)
Needs More Grain Review by tazdevl77

Not sure how NB figure's they're going to get an OG of 1.082 with only 15.5 lbs of grain... I had to add another 5 lbs of grain to get an OG of 1.088 with this recipe. I also added another 3 oz of hops to off set the added grains. Has been in the bottle for 7 months now, so it's still "young" for a barley wine. At 9.31% ABV it's a weak barley wine, and so far myself and several others feel it needs more body. The taste is good, but tastes watered down. I will experiment with this kit some more and add even more grains in the future to try and get more body out of it. But the kit "as is" is weak. I have used many other NB all grain kits with great success and usually I get the same numbers they anticipate with my set up, so my brew house efficiency, etc, is not a factor here.

Simple, and Delicious Review by aolson

To me, barleywine is the undisputed King of all beer styles. Back in May I finally took the dive and brewed this up as only my 7th brew. I knew I wanted to brew then when I first started, but I wanted to practice on other styles because I knew this one had to sit. Now, almost 6 months later, I had my first glass of this brew. It is exactly what I love in barleywines. Its boozy, its malty, its complex, and overall just delicious. This is one that I will continue to let age in the keg, and have a glass on those special nights which deserve this special brew. I think its time to brew a second batch and see what I can come up with. (Posted on 10/22/10)
