330 ML bottle
Dark Mahogany. Rocky light tan head that falls to a thick collar. Leaves spotty lacing. Sticky ABV legs to this.
Nose is bread, caramel, dark fruits, fruit cake, brandy, and brown sugar. Nose is obvious that it has some age on it. Not much booze left in this.
Taste is dark fruit, pine and citrus but still hoppy. Dark fruit and bread in the mid and back. Still quite oily in the mouth. pine and grapefruit finish with some brandy topped dark fruits.
A bit one dimensional at times but pretty decent overall

Brown with cream colour minimal head. Aroma of fruit cake, malts and sugar. Taste gets more bready with some bitterness in the end. Awesome.

33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet somewhere in Oslo some time back. Pours dark amber to brown with a beige head. Malty and caramamelly aroma with some hoppy notes, dried fruits, herbs and hints of citrus, spices and alcohol. Sweet, very sweet, but still somehow quite drinkable, and it finishes with a nice bitterness. Rather flavourful and quite a tasty sipper.

330ml bottle from Brewdog shop.
Small cream coloured head, good lacing, body is slightly murky dark brown. Big fruity nose, raisins, treacle, alcohol, pine. Flavour is fruit cake, burnt sugar, booze, surprisingly bitter finish. Great mouthfeel, oily, chewy, light carbonation. Rich, fruity, spicy, this is a big beer.

Barley wine mais leve (apesar dos 10% teor de alcool). É uma boa cerveja, mas com um péssimo custo benefício.

Dark brown body, light brown head. Bit dirty looking, clears a lot when warms. Aroma has sweet cookie dough, raisins and chocolate. When warms, adds some alcohol and yeasty fruits. Flavour is very harsh, much alcohol, some coffee and bit tar.

Draft. Deep maroon. Bright orange peel aroma, with additions of toasted biscuits. Flavor is old oranges blended with caramel and toffee. A bit more toastiness than I’m used to in a barleywine -- almost a brown ale level of nuttiness. Interesting take on the style.
