tombyars (1580) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - SEP 28, 2011
First tasted this barley wine at the winter ale festival held in Glasgow in February 1997. Cask and gravity dispense. Ruby black with an open buff head which rapidly disappeared leaving no lacing. Strong, intense aroma of damsons and berry fruit. Rich powerful mouthfeel. Dark malt complex gives a full range of flavours with fruit to the fore. Hedgerow berries, plums, black grapes, overipe cherries and a hint of dark chocolate. Very slight prickle of hops in the aftertaste which fades fast as sweetness returns with an alcoholic warmth in the slightly dry vineous oak finish. Excellent example of an English barley wine at its very best. Highly recommended.

bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2011
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with reddish tinge against the sides of the glass. Small tan head falls away quickly leaving just the faintest of films. Minimal lacing. Nice looking beer. Big aromas of dark chocolate, treacle, vegemite and some raosted grain. Really good. Flavours are initially quite sweet before a slightly bitter sour finish. Some alcohol shows through. Smooth moouthfeel. Good beer

Palme (4085) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 4, 2011
0.33l bottle @ Henrik, Bergen. This is a near black bodied beer with a side-sticking off-white head. The first aroma revealed is soy-sauce combined with coffee, confect chocolate and a almost fish-stocky saltiness. This is full-bodied with moderate to low carbonation. Tastes first burned caramel and quite sweet. Then some dark fruits, that I just can’t put my finger tingles the tongue before it switches to a coffee-kicking aftertaste that lasts for ever. The coffee aftertaste is combined with a nice bitterness making this quite good.
