markwise (5195) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Bottle courtesy of a kind soul at the Tampa Weekly Tasting. Pours a hazy yellow with an off-white head. Nose is peaty band-aid soaked in cigarette ashes. Flavor follows the nose with a hint of caramel. Medium in body and uber smokey for my tastes.

Silvan7 (1105) - Samarate, ITALY - OCT 17, 2016
Bottle @ home. ramata carica, riflessi ambrati ed un’unghia aranciata. Schiuma beige grossolana, non molto persistente. Aroma intenso, tobato, legnoso, sughero, caramello, butterscotch, malto, agrumi canditi. gusto abboccato, acidulo e non poco, dovuto principalmente alla tostatura. Caramello , liquirizia, frutta candita, ed un amaro poco intenso. Decisamente carbonata per lo stile, calda, non troppo rotonda. Corpo pieno. abbastanza equilibrata e piuttosto armonica

Koelschtrinker (17681) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 28, 2016
Süß rauchiger Beginn. Helle Malznoten, minimale Herbe. Die Rauchigkeit steigt leicht an, befindet sich aber sowieso schon auf hohem Level. Vollmundig, dunkel getreidig. 10/9/8/9//8

Mortlach (1956) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 6, 2016
Handpump @Luppolo Station (Rome). Pours deep amber/reddish with a medium off-white head. Aroma of smoked meat and caramel, bread crust, sugary notes. Flavour is rich, malty, medium sweet balanced with a nice bitterness and a good smoked note. Medium body, soft carbonation. A very nice beer, definitely underrated!

dasvfa (2) - NORWAY - MAY 30, 2016 does not count
På tur i Dublin så ble dette overraskende nok et av høydepunktene. En Italiener blant alle Irene. Traff smaksløkene som en rett venstre. En knyttneve kledd i sort fløyel, med en fantastisk ettersmak av hjemmelaget treak (einebær basert karamell) samt røyksmak som sender tankene til en god Islay whiskey. Det sa bare klikk. En øl for meg. Ser mange kritiserer den for at den ikke er typeriktig. Spiller ingen rolle for meg, den var så god. Nå er bare problemet hvor får jeg tak i neste flaske.

luttonm (4721) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 29, 2016
Luppolo Station, Rome. Rich, leather-mahogany. Interesting smoke throughout. Bandage-gauze aroma, sterile. Very odd. Medium+ body. Very rich flavor, lacking a little body. Very interesting.

Rune (11341) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2015
375ml design bottle, lotto 58, bought in March 2012 at Johnny’s Off License in Roma. Shared with Finn. Crocheted lacing from a crystal clear amber coloured body. Fawn-coloured head that stayed well. Caramel, nuts and bread on the nose. Malt-accented taste profile of caramel, chocolate and nuts, mid-sweet. Drying ending, hints of dried fruit. Well bodied. Pleasing to a certain degree (Tromsø 05.11.2015).

Finn (6291) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2015
Flaske 330ml. Spandert av Rune og delt under en sesjon hos ham 5 Nov 15. Mørk amber. Middels høyt luftig skum. Spotlacing. Svak røykaroma. Hint av lær. Smaken litt tung. Mørke frukter etter hvert. Blir i søtligste laget.

mzaar (2815) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUL 16, 2014
Flaska (Lotto 76). Grumlig bärnstensfärgad med smutsvitt skum. Dofter av karamell, blomster och malt. Rökigheten dominerar smaken, därtill karamell, malt och viss fruktighet. Rund och mjuk munkänsla.

Palme (4180) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 23, 2014
0.375l bottle from Lot 76, shared with The Tasting Crew. It has lots of eye-floaters this one, as good as clear looking red-amber colored with a bubbly and big sidesticking white head. Really smoky aroma. Not typical Barleywine nose really as it’s quite mild and a tad weird. Almost a little flourish as well. It’s soft, really soft on the bubbles this and it has a gliding oily mouthfeel. Again, light smoked in the taste with traces of dried fruits and red grapes. Quickly forgettable really. 19.02.2014
