650ml bottle @ Maunula beer tasting. Thanks Mikko!
Beautiful red colour with sticky white foam. Aroma of sweet caramel. Nice hoppy and not too sticky mouthfeel. Good american barleywine!

Deep red-brown, small tan head. Aroma citrus and pine hops. Full body. Some alcohol presence. Fairly sweet but the finish is on the drier side. I think a good balance of hops and malt. Solid.

Versa nel bicchiere di color arancio scuro, leggermente velato; la schiuma Ť sottile, densa e leggera, ma costante durante tutta la bevuta. Líaroma Ť di caramello, malto, melassa, luppolo, agrumi, alcool e frutta. Al palato si distingue chiaramente sapore di malto e caramello, con note agrumate e di luppolo. Eí molto dolce, poco carbonata, con corpo viscoso; in bocca rimane oleosa, finale da Imperial IPA grazie alla forte presenza di luppolo.

Aroma is caramel, toffee, hops, pine, nice. Appearance is reddish brown, light tan head. Taste is caramel, hops, booze, toffee, finishes strong. Mouthfeel is thick, good carbonation and booze is present. Overall, itís not bad but misses the mark.

Bomber poured a hazy reddish amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of caramel, toffee, dried fruit and light sherry. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of toffee, caramel, light fruitiness and a hint of yeast with a smooth lingering toffee finish.

Tap at Clubhouse BFD. Pours dark murky brown. Small off white head. Aroma is intense malt, plum, toffee, dark fruits. Intense malt up front. Amazing. Mild citrus at best. Flavor is sweet malt, fig, burnt sugar. Really good. The hops add a nice bitter kick at the end. Solid Barleywine. Does not disappoint, but itís mostly on the malt spectrum.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 650ml. -at Svijet Piva Zagreb. Brown coloured, small to medium sized off-white head, alcohol and caramel in the nose. Sweet malty, alcoholic, dried fruits and light spicy with rather sweet finish. Not the freshest version and not one of my favorite style and even a way to sweet. Bad luck Crunkle Sam.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured hazy light brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy dark fruit, citrus and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate to heavy complex sweet flavor with a medium to heavy complex sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is was a solid beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz shared bottle.
Hazy dark brown body with an excellent head.
Sweet aroma with well hidden alcohol.
The alcohol is more obvious in tasting but blends nicely with the sweet malts.
