3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy deep ruby, with a moderate off-white head, which lasts fairly well and leaves a little lacing. Resin and fresh herbal hops, berry notes and toffee malt make up the aroma. Resin and spice hops up front give way to full-bodied toffee and port. A little alcohol warmth mixes with berry notes in the finish. A very enjoyable barley wine.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Õllepood nr 1 Gambrinus in Tartu (€ 5,50), August 2014. Batch 235. Pours a deep dark mahogany or copper with a light head that retains well and leaves some lacing. Nose is hops, caramel, red berries, plums, autumny earthiness. Downright awesome. Gets maltier as it warms. Taste is... that’s heavy stuff here... more malty, boozy, ripe autumn fruits, slight liquorice. Full body, viscous syrupy texture, medium carbonation. Very long, bitter, malty, boozy finish - also dry and a bit winey even. Overall a sweet and boozy barleywine yet somehow it’s neatly balanced and terribly enjoyable. Perfect for a cool Sunday night at home or a hot Friday night at a bar with good company.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at brewdog shepherds bush. Pours a dark red caramel colour with an off white head. Aroma has caramel, light fruit cake, a little honey... Medium to full body, light to medium carbonation. Sweet with light treacle, lemon, fruit cake, light sherry, some booze... Too sweet for me, but nice enough.

Shared a bottle with Rik at home 21-8-2014 while watching soccer. I really liked this beer. It’s like a more compelling version of Alesmith Grand Cru. Sweetness combined with a strong alcohol taste and hints of bitterness. The sweetness is rich and boozy. It reminds me of brown sugar and raisins. The taste is grabbing and dominant, like that.

Doft av portvin. Hade nog vunnit på något års lagring. Lite spretig. Annars än en enkel Barley med en söt eftersmak.

Decently done barley wine with light hint of smoke and lots of caramelized malt. Pours dark maroon. A fair amount of booze. Finishes sweet and slightly bitter. A little syrupy. Tap at Black Squirrel.

Pours deep amber with crema like head. Aroma is strong hops up front. Flavor is pretty strong aroma hops, but a really delicate hop bitterness that doesn’t get in the way of the sweetness of the barley wine. Mouthfeel is awesome, smooth,
