markwise (4898) - 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.

Rune (9661) - 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 (5176) - 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 (2281) - 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 (3603) - 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

Cloudy dark orange. Aroma is malty with hints of peat and smoke. Taste is malty with a soury ashy note. Not a very awesome barley wine.

Svesse (7262) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2013
(Bottle) Dark amber colour, slightly hazy, with dense beige head. Fruity, slightly smoky nose with notes of dried fruit, rye bread, apricots, caramel and hints of smoke and peat. Malty, fruity taste with rye bread, apricots, dried fruit, candy sugar, peat and hints of smoked tea. Balanced spicy bitterness. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty ale with a gentle smoke character. Quite nice.

Bottle shared by Anki, thanks. Pours murky brown with a thin head/film. Aroma is tart and malty. Taste is sweet, mostly caramel malt and some smoke. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, mouth feel is dry, astringent. After taste is dry and bitter.

Edoardo (8) - ITALY - MAY 14, 2013 does not count
Colore ambrato carico, schiuma poco persistente. Aromi ovviamente dati dall’affumicatura del malto, ma si possono distinguere anche sentori di pelle, cuoio e frutta secca. In bocca rispecchia in pieno le aspettative date dagli aromi, corpo pieno, ritorna l’affumicatura del malto, ma si affianca anche un leggero sentore di caramello. Retrogusto breve, etilico. Da meditazione.
