solidfunk (3817) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Reasonably done barley wine that doesn’t fall into the trap of over-syrupy and unbalanced. Some citrus hops and sharp barley on the nose with a light note of grapefruit. The citrus is quite prominent through the palate. Pours dark maroon with decent head and lacing. Soft carbonation. Finishes bitter with a touch of citrus sourness. Bottle I’ve been sitting on from Peluso.

Délicieusement houbloné, note de cerises noir, raisin et une pointe de sirop d´érable. Une de mes préférés, elle respect bien le style.

Bon vin d’orge. Très sucré avec un bon goût de tire d’érable. Bière qui peut facilement donner mal à la tête si on en boit trop, trop rapidement.

angel77 (849) - oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 8, 2014
Botella de 34.1 cl en Cimeria 08-01-14. Color ambar muy oscuro con espuma marfil poco persistente. Aromas bastante dulces. Cuerpo medio - alto con cierta densidad. Sabor dulce no muy intenso y tal vez algo de madera empapada al final y ligero amargor. No mucha sensación alcohólica. Bastante buena aunque no gran contricante para una Lervig Barley wine que la precedió. Hay que darle una nueva oportunidad.

Lowenbrau (1892) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 9, 2013
341 ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. Pours hazy amber with some off white head. Some head retention, some lacing. Malty, liquor, caramel aromas. Medium body, soft carbonation, silky texture. Taste is caramel, raisins, liquor, liquorice, some roasty flavours. Well balanced and enjoyable.

tiong (3699) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 5, 2013
341ml bottle from Beer-city

Pours dark reddish brown with a smooth foamy head. Aroma of sweet syrup, caramel, toffee and berries. Taste is sweet, sticky and malty with notes of syrup, caramel and toffee. Finish is sticky, malty and caramely with some syrupy toffee notes. A bit too sweet for my taste.

bunget (533) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2013
341ml bottle. Murky copper body, small beige head with poor retention. Aroma of caramel, orange candy, floral hops, dried apricots, some heavy cookie dough and alcohol in the backstage. Taste of caramel malt, herbs, cherries, raisins. Boozy but not in a bad way. Good warming effect.

sfuen03 (320) - Barcelona, SPAIN - NOV 16, 2013
Average sized head, disappears quickly, leaving a thin broken film. Color is reddish brown. Aroma is cookies, syrup, cinnamon and vanilla, fruity and slightly alcoholic. Body is medium to full, oily, maybe too alcholic. Low carbonation, finish is bitter. Taste is sugar, caramel, oaky. Correct balance.

Temptation (220) - - NOV 14, 2013
Great aspect, copper color, opaque, almost no head nor lace. Aromas to caramel, sweet wine, raisins, molasses. Well balanced mouthfeel, with notes to toffee, cream, vanilla, butterscotch and caramel. Creamy texture, long development, a little bit astringent finish. Medium to low carbonation and body. The overall is nice, well balanced and structured, and improves as it gets warmer. Pretty good barleywine.

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2013
Deep amber-ruby pour with a thick yellow-tan head. The nose is quite hoppy and intensely chewy. Some sweet earthy/piny hoppiness along with a bit of soft sweet caramel. A bit of toffee and some nice light berry fruit. A touch of light oxidation but that adds a nice chewy note that I totally enjoy. Quite a surprise - really damn solid barley wine.
