MotherBrother (779) - Aalborg, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2014
Pour murky dark mahogany, with a small tan head. Aroma of caramel, dark fruits, slight marzipan, barrel, wet wood, slight booze, plenty of barrel. A little heat, but nothing like 17% abv. The taste is super sweet, with some roast notes to it. oily n’ thick body, with a semi flat carbonation. ork’ satme!!

stoutnick (690) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 9, 2015
2013 December batch #1 bottle. Dark brown mahogany pour. Aroma of mild spirit, alcohol, oak. Taste is mild hop bitterness and fruitiness up front, then big burnt caramel and brown sugar, mild oak, prunes and dates with a honey sweetness (almost port like). Very drinkable for the high abv. Thick and syrupy. Lovely Barleywine- sweet and delicious.

PartyFowle (318) - - MAR 21, 2015
Bottle. Deep burgundy hue, burnt orange at the edges, with a thin tan head. Aroma has impressive complexity for a SMaSH beer. Caramel, toffee, overripe oranges, vanilla, toasted coconut, brown sugar, marshmallow. Flavor is fairly sweet but displays much of the same notes as the nose, along with maple syrup and more pronounced orange peel and toasted oak. Some noticeable citrusy hops as well. Creamy medium-full body; tingly carbonation. Alcohol is noticeable, but definitely less noticeable than 17 percent. Very tasty stuff.

Fra fat på CBC mai-13: barley wine er godterier for greie gutter, og denne er intet unntak. Brun ravfarge, klar og fin med beige skum. Så kommer aromaen opp og jeg greier ikke vente lenger. Barley wine lagret på cognacfat, ah so smooth. I toppsjiktet denne kvelden.
