330ml bottle @ OlutExpo 2015

Pours dark brown with a smooth head. Aroma of caramel, syrup, toffee, spices and hints of berries. Taste is sweet, syrupy and caramely malty with loads of toffee and hints of berries. Finish is malty and sweet with some syrup and berries. Decent.

thirstyrabbit (1751) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 14, 2015
Bottle, label has 2014 on it. ABV is 7,2%. Aroma has sweet caramelly malts and English hops. Sweet malty taste with biscuits and plenty of nice hops and toffee in the finish. Well balanced. Not really a barley wine but an English Strong Ale. Tasty and very drinkable.

gripweed57 (1385) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - OCT 9, 2015
330 ml bottle. 2012 vintage. 9% ABV. Poured in honour of the late, great John Lennon’s 75th birthday. We miss you John! Subtle roasted malt nose hints at dark dried fruit and brown bread. Bittersweet dark malts mixed with subtle smoky and dark toasted bread notes. For a barley wine, this is a touch light in body, but enjoyable nonetheless. Quite subtle; better as it warms. A real sipper. Imagine peace through beer and music!🍻🎶

martjoobolut (3188) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 9, 2015
Bottle, 2014 vintage, Alc 7.2% (from SIP, Tallinn). Pours dark ruby-brown with light brownish head. The head stays for some time. Aroma is sweet, malt, caramel, burnt sugar. Flavor is sweet and bitter, caramel, malt, nuttiness. Alcohol is well covered, carbonation is on the low side. Overall: this brew is lost somewhere between English brown ale, English strong ale and barley wine, but I like it.

Marduk (6436) - Reval, ESTONIA - OCT 2, 2015
330ml bottle. Dark copper color. Tiny size of head in shape of free Ireland, stays. Sweet, caramel, faint prunes, distant cold coffee in aroma. More coffee, roasted malts, grassy hops in taste. Herbal coffee mixed with herbal hops in aftertaste. Coffee like bitterness. Dry twiggy mouthfeel. Barley wine? You must be joking?

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2015 330ml bottle (Pothouse, Tallinn)
So grainy, branny. Ditto taste. Not so sweet, more ESA than BW. Nice almondy nuttiness. Easy drinker. Dark red. Small tan head. Finish dry and bitter earthy hops. Lovely brew. More please!
Rerate: 330ml bottle (OlutExpo2015) (7:4:7:4:14=3.6)
Super sipper. Love the hazelnut to give it something more interesting than just the rich sweet caramelly malts. Lovely strong English ale.

Skinnyviking (8958) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2015
Bottle at home. Medium high fluffy quickly disappearing off-white head. Clear very dark red brown body. Powerful roasted malt dried fruit aroma with a hint of spices. Nicely balanced flavor with a subdued taste of alcohol, roasted malt caramel at the front and dried fruit and hops bitterness at the back. Notes of liquorice as well. Low carbonation, long sweet finish.

Edmis (22) - LITHUANIA - AUG 7, 2015
