Leighton (10767) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2012
On tap at Borefts 2012, Bodegraven. Pours faintly hazy ruby with a light, bubbly white head. Rich ripe fruit nose, some pine and caramel, too. Drinks like straight sugar syrup, with notes of caramel, raisins AND grapes, melons, bread. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Warm finish with sticky sugars, bread, semi-dark, toasted sugars, slight herbal hops. Way, way too sweet - even for a 16.2% barley wine. A bit more carbonation may have helped this guy along, but as it was the beer was just a bit much.

jackl (4566) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Tap @ Borefts 2012. The pour’s hazy amber brown with no head. The nose is pacific hops, salt, mellow melon sweetness and sugary red berry. The taste is very sweet berry fruits, soft toffee. Accents of herbal hop and cedar wood. Loads of sweet watermelon on the finish. Full body, soft carbonation. Flavorful, but very sweet. OK.

Tap @ BBF 12. Pour murky - caramel brown, with no head. Aroma of caramel, vanilla, brown sugar, slight soap/perfume. The taste is pretty darn sweet. Oily body, with a rather flat carb.

brokensail (10781) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Pours a hazy amber color with an off-white head. Heavy sugar and caramel sweetness with some cognac and vanilla. Not too much of the hopping on the nose. A bit cloying, actually. The flavor is heavy on the sugar/caramel sweetness, vanilla, oak, and cognac. A bit of dark fruits and light chocolate oxidation.
