Bygers (735) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle 0,33l. Pours a dark amber colour with a medium head that leaves a big nice lacing. Aroma of hops, alcohol, caramel and toasted malts, lots of toffee and the faintest touch of resin. Taste of sweet malts, dominating the palate, nice lengthy bitterness. Oily texture. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

angel77 (849) - oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 28, 2014
Botella de 33 cl en la cantina renfe de avilés. Junio de 2013. Increíble triple india Pale ale con sabores algo afrutados al principio predominando sabores bastante maltosos y dulces y terminando con un Amargor bastante bueno y persistente. Cuerpo fuerte y pastoso con 14 maravillosos grados de alcohol que se notan de principio a fin. Una maravilla de cerveza para repetir lo antes posible.

armando629 (2406) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 24, 2013
0,33 l bottle, Csakajósör - rated one year before, just from my notes
Pours golden brown with not much head. Aroma is malty with an alcohol kick. Pretty nice to sup, finishes sweet and alcoholic with some grapefruit hops in there. As it warms up, it becomes more pleasant and becomes a nice fruity barley wine.

Osprey87 (1579) - WALES - NOV 16, 2013
Cold bottle, BB March 2017 so I guess this was bottled over 18 months ago. Looks a murky orange/red with a small white head. Looks good. Smell - rosewater, toffee, slight earth. Body is medium, carbonation medium too. Taste - very sweet malts, caramel, slight liquorice, earthy, spice, alcoholic but not sharp at all and hiding the 14% extremely well. Also no bitterness or astringency. I’m sure that this was once a great TIPA. With a bit of age and oxidation, it’s a pretty good barley wine.

330ml bottle. Malty, liquor, caramel, fruity aromas. Pours hazy deep gold, almost murky, with nice off-white head, persistent, some lacing. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily exture. Taste is liquor, caramel, spicy, fruity, liquorice. Balanced for the high abv.

zacgillbanks (2244) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle from Brewdog website. Dark amber coloured with a very sharp red fruit and bitter hoppy flavour, notes of burnt orange, currants, vanilla and an extremely warming spicy hoppy finish

shoulderbroken (1986) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 27, 2013
Bottle. Amber colour not much head. Aroma is very boozy, bit of pee about it too, grapefruit. Taste is good, bit of a burn, boozy fruit, treacle. Thick and chewy. Bitter too. Surprised how nice it was. Whole bottle would be tough, but glass was good.

Lilja (1571) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 16, 2013
En flaska som fått stå till sig något år. Smak och doft av humle, malt, honung, karamell, sirap, söt tallkåda, persika, plommon. Fruktig, oljig, kraftfull, trots sin höga alkoholhalt (14%) slår den inte överdrivet igenom utan skapar en varm munkänsla. Ren och len smak med barley wine känsla utan överdriven sötma. Bra beska med smak av grapefrukt och tall med toner av peppar. Välbalanserad och fantastiskt god, vill bara ha mer av detta.
