Je ne sais pas si c est vraiment une bière ??... Les saveurs s entremêlent miel, chocolat, caramel et bien sur Bordeaux ! Je reste bouche bé

Kleurplaatje (83) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2015
Pours hazy amber with no head at all. Aroma is fruity, sugary, caramelly and a tad alcoholic. Some vinous notes too. Quite massive if you ask me. Wow. Taste is incredibly sweet with some beautiful fruity and vinous, woody, undertones. Clear notes of oak, grapes, vanilla and dried fruits. Long lingering caramel kick from the beginning, evolving towards a slight bitterish, sweetish and remarkably soft and smooth finish (alcohol is extremely well hidden). The caramel sweetness lingers long and goes accompanied with a nice soft warmishness in the end. Beautiful smooth brew. Nice full body, sticky, somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Incredibly well balanced, just like the original B&G. Massive all over the way again. The vinous notes work out absolutely fantastic in terms of taste and thickness, giving it just that bit more intensity. Truly a world class barley wine gem.

procraste (95) - FRANCE - APR 20, 2015
Brun foncé rougeoyant. Attaque piquante avant de napper le palais de caramel fruité. Un final long et doux ... Un peu sirupeux tout de même / sentiment d’avoir une bière "adoucie" dont le houblon serait passé à l’arrière plan. Un côté tarte tain en se réchauffant dans le verre

Marduk (3544) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 21, 2015
330ml bottle (thanks martjoobolut). Clear copper color. Sweet, caramel, raisins, alcohol in aroma. Aroma is bit thinner than non-BA version. Caramel, raisins, roast, bit of dried apples in taste. No alcohol detected in taste. Bit sour, but omg those woody wild raisins in aftertaste. Fantastic!

FatPhil (10084) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 20, 2015
330ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut
First aroma was alas pure alcohol. However, after that it’s massively raisiny, really nice. Lighter palate than non-BA, almost actually light. Malts hide behind the raisons and dried fruits. Balance is just right for a sipper. Finish has a nice ix of the dried fruits, raisins, malts, and even bitter hops. Damn good.

Brown beer, almost no head. Nose is thick malt and booze, caramel, bread notes, sweetness, wine. Flavor is winey, woody, bready, malty, caramel, dried fruit. Tart notes, wood an caramel in the finish. Vinous mouthfeel. Interesting stuff.

The_Osprey (2845) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2015
330ml bottled Jan 2013 at 15.2%, red wax. Dark brown, orange tinge, still, clear, small white head. Aroma is sickly strawberry jam, oxidation, sherry. Body is medium, touch of carbonation, slightly foamy, tooth-coating sugar. Taste is very sweet, strawberry jam, caramel, strawberry cream chocolates, no alcohol coming through at all. HUGE sweet beer. Nice flavours, but way too sweet. If you like eating strawberry jam from a spoon, with sugar sprinkled on top, then you’ll love this one.

Maakun (1192) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2015
Tap at Kaapse brouwers. Dark copper with barely any head. Yoghurt, sweet grains and dough, cognac, spices, marzipan, cooked vegetables. Sweet with light milky sour and vegetal bitter finish. Full bodied.

teorn88 (3551) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2015
33cl waxed bottle. It pours a deep ruby almost brown color with a minimal tan head. Aroma is sweet and lightly roasty with notes of dark chocolate, red wine, wild berries, red fruit marmalade. Taste is big bold juicy and extremely sweet and tasty. Bi notes of red wine, ripe fruits, tangy red berries, marmalade, chocolate sponge and light liqueur. Not boozy, hides the ABV very well. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, big bold bastard of a beer, me like it

Huhzubendah (2809) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Thanks Brad! Orange / copper body with an off-white head. Aromas of cotton candy, orange, butterscotch, alcohol. Sweet, boozy. Elegance emerges mid to late palate with a smooth finish. Still, too sweet and unabashed. Fruity elixir.
