fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2009 <i>2008-12-09, gravity dispense at The Bree Louise, London, 7.8%, 6-4-7-3-14=34</i>
Dark mahogany color, almost black; flat. Light caramel aroma. Good body strength, strong caramel flavor, with dark chocolate tones, that become quite strong towards the end, as well as the bitterness; there are also roasted nuts at the end. Reasonable Strong Ale (not sweet enough to be a Barley Wine), a bit too much roasted for me.

<i>2004-11-30, cask conditioned at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö, 5-4-7-4-14=34</i>
Brown color. Simple aroma. Very good body, malty, with a lot of caramel and some chocolate. Bold final.

RichardWilding (201) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2004
Draught. Dark red/brown, white head. Sweet and rich. Fairly assertive alcoholic taste. Plummy, raisiny. A decent beer, nothing special though.

BATLMULLET (127) - Highland, Indiana, USA - MAR 31, 2004
On tap at The Willows, Watton, UK. Not nearly as strong as American Barley wine "style". Very malty sweet. Good deep color, not much head to speak of. Sort of raisin-ish initially with a bit of lingering bitterness. Pretty tasty...this pub was serving it in pints.

aracauna (3094) - Georgia, USA - JAN 11, 2004
Cocoa and tea body with an ok head. English. Flat cola, prunes and brown sugar in the flavor. Ther's very little hops in the flavor or aroma. It's mellow with a lingering sweetness.

SilkTork (5229) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2004 Dec, 2003: The Cock - a Freehouse, Kent. Yummy, yum yum. Sweet and plummy with a nice twiggy bitterness as it goes down. Hugely impressive on first gulp it soon settles down into a barley wine with a few flaws but still very decent. The sweetness and bitterness are not fully integrated and can clash. While the tree bark finish is a little muddled and slightly off target. But still yummy enough! [3.7]
Dec, 2004: Bridge House, London. An Adnams pub. Intense, almost overbearing dark sweetness. Juicy raisins. Bit too much. [2.9]

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2006 Cask conditioned at Charlies. Deep reddish brown coloured. Malty and fruity with notes of toffee. Very sweet. Rather full bodied and warming. ---Bottled. Label stated "best before 1982". Extremely sweet and syrupy. Quite "too old"-tasting.

leaparsons (8156) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2003
A very dark brown beer with malty, spicy aromas. This is sweet and syrupy and too much like a malt tonic drink. Perhaps you can get it on prescription.

lunaticharness (183) - Torrance, California, USA - JUL 19, 2003
label stated "best before 11/97" whoa.. i dont know if you wanna call this a barleywine, this is some dark malt goodness, nice rich molasses, thick palate, very drinkable, not a typical barley wine but a definite good beer

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - APR 3, 2003
Ah, satisfaction! Sort of a barleywine, yet rather thickish and syrupy. Almost a doppelbock. Black as night and fun to drink just one glass of.
