sebletitje (8663) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 15, 2012
75cl bottle @ RBBWG 2012, Antwerpen courtesy of Benzai. Cuivrée, col beige épais. Bière étrange dans son style qui se veut de type ’barley wine’ et en fait reste plus dominé par un malt fumé assez agréable. Le palais est donc divisé entre les caractéristiques d’un barley anglais laissant une fin note amer et citronnée/fruité suivi d’un malt caramel et fumé. Garde une présence belge dans la levure.

brokensail (15203) - San Leandro, California, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Amber in color with a white head. A weird smokey aroma to go with lightly tart citrus notes. A bit of plastic, some light honey notes, maybe a bit of sweetness. Intensely smokey. Bleach, maybe some plastic, peat, and just not good.

Skyview V, 11/11/11. Courtesy of JK. Hazy tan color with a small head. Slight nutty aroma. Strong malt flavor. A little dusty taste and mouthfeel. Almost smoky.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Thanks to JK for sharing this beer. Pale brown color with minimal head. A little funk in the aroma, with some sour apple character. A little brown sugar in the taste, with a malty character.

Bottle at MN Gathering @ Skyview V. Orange pour with a minimal white head. Aroma and taste of caramel and smoke. Touch of light fruit.

jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet malts/caramel with maybe a touch of smoke. Flavor is sweet malt/caramel with a little acidity and again a hint of smoke (though the smoke taste is a little off). Finish is slightly bitter and has a burnt malt flavor that isn’t good.

deanso (7944) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2011
75cl bottle shared with friends. Gushed. Thin white head. Hazy amber/blond pour. Smokey taste. Quite different for a barley wine

bobaidan (530) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - MAY 30, 2011
Pours dark murky brown with practically no head. Aroma is nut, alcohol and a bit of caramel. Flavor is burnt hazelnut, alcohol and a lot of bitterness. This was not one of my favorites.

marcot (770) - Campomorone, ITALY - MAR 19, 2011
Bevuta a Selezione Birra 2011, Rimini; uno degli ultimi assaggi di cui ho ricordi offuscati e appunti incompleti. La ricordo simile a una scotch ale scozzese, buonissima.
