Scopey (7375) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2014
Bottle at Pigís Ear 2014, thanks to Jackie & Simon. It pours deep mahogany brown with a small beige head. The nose is rich, toasty, toffee, crunchy nut cornflakes, fruit cake, butterscotch, nougat and Scottish tablet. The taste is sweet, boozy, fruit cake, syrupy, raisin, date, honey, warming alcohol, earth, toast, brandy notes, light bitterness and stewed apple. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. A slap of bitterness counteracts some of the sweetness. All comes together rather well.

BeerViking (2683) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle, pours a deep orange-brown with no head, hints of Seville orange, pepper and chocolate toffee on the nose. Syrupy and dry-sweet, with more orange notes over a warming caramel body. The alcohol is well hidden, emerging as a drying effect that moderates the caramel and brings out an earthy bitter edge.

Bottle by my friend John. Pours dark brown with almost no head and a slightly sour fruity aroma. There is a flat citrus and dark molasses flavor with a bitter dry finish that sticks to the palate.

Un buon barley wine caldo, aromatico, senza sbavature, con note caramellate e speziate intriganti. Piacevole bevuta.

sulawang (639) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
Visual: A very simple label: 10 and Brýton, simple yet elegant. Pours root beer brown, unfiltered with lots of suspended bits of sediment, almost no head, thin ringed retention, some slow single lines of streams. Nose: caramel malts, brown sugar, a bit of alcohol detection. (lvl-6)-pungency Attack: oily thick, weighty Mid-palate: tingly-fizzy mouthfeel, (lvl-8)-brown sugar sweetness, (MAIN) fig/dates, licorice, caramel MALTS, late alcohol detection, nutty Finish: obscure citrus/acidic sourness, malty sweet heavy alcoholic finish. Summary: Mainly brown sugar malts with fig overtones, but has a strange fishy/pukey/gag-reflex acidity at the end that didnít bode well with my palate. Nicely crafted but the flavour isnít for me.

Very dark brown, quickly disappearing beige head. Sweet smell of malts, caramel, burnt sugar, some dark fruits, some alcohol. Similar taste, more burnt sugar, caramel, little bitterness in the finish with a slight alcoholic warming. Very good.

Ibrew2or3 (7077) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Fancy schmansy 75cl bottle courtesy of SHIG. It pours with a murky dark amber body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up malt sweetness, brown sugar, prunes, cherries, molasses and some nuttiness. This all goes together nicely. The taste is smooth and rich with prunes swimming in molasses as well as brown sugar covered hazelnuts. It then picks up a bit of roasted malts to help add balance to the sweetness. Nice indeed.
