Rask0lnikov (785) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 6, 2016
Bottled 04.09.2012. Pale, hazy, red colour. No head. Berries, black tea, hints of caramel and some citruses in the aroma. Tea, berries, caramel at first. Raisins, citruses and spices. Very nice sour finish. A hitter. Very well balanced, low carbonated, rather medium bodied, great barley wine with really interesting palate.

jerohen (2181) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2014
Bottled, sampled 2 years after bottling date, don’t remember where i got it from. Orange/brown colored, almost no head. Strong hoppy nose, fuity. Flavor of tangerine, pumpkin, hops, lots of sweetness too. Lasting bitter finish. The regular version is very sweet, and probably requires a few decades of aging to become really good. The dry hopping however really improves the beer, by partially counteracting the immense sweetness. In addition, it’s nice to notice that the hops are still clearly present after 2 years, in contrast to what most of the hop-heads claim.

Cuso (7815) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 10, 2014
Bottle from De molen web shop. Hazy dark amber orange color with medium white head. Malty aroma with nice portion of citrus hops. Taste, sweet malt, syrup, honey, ripe fruit, citrus hops with grapefruit, tropical fruits, grapefruits zest. Alcohol is dangerously hidden. Medium long bitter sweet finish. Tasty.

kraddel (6367) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - MAR 22, 2014
Bottled september 4th 2012 . Pours dark amber, looks very thick ( bubbles struggle to go to the surface where they form a thick , creamy , rather small white head ) Smell bommen en granaten . Not too much cascade ( anymore ? ) thick body , low carbo .. AAAAAH good old De Molen ;) Taste has surprisingly much bitterness , still . not to much of the cascade aroma left . This all above the oh-so damn awesome bommen-taste . Finishes rather bitter . Again, as in all bommen en granaten, this one is rediculously drinkable . I am thankfull for once that its a rainy day . On a sunny day, the bottle would be empty in 10 minutes . Spot on !

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 15, 2013
Bouteille 33cl, bottled on 04/09/2012. Cuivrée, col beige léger. Arôme offre un bouquet fruité noir, malté très basique sur de légères notes sucrées et caramel le tout conservant une approche houblonné subtile mais sans plus. Palais est immédiatement submergé par ce côté alcoolisé suivi de malts caramel pâle très basique et qui ici encore font cette signature de DM. Amertume houblonné un peu plus présente qu’à l’habitude. Côté fruité rappelant prune, raisin sec, fini liquoreux collant aux lèvres. Sec et légèrement citronné et une note épicée sur la langue. Fini sec avec ce côté cascade qui reste marqué surtout au niveau houblonnage à cru. Le côté noble houblonné venant du Sladek ressort bien et garde ici aussi ce côté fort DM. ok mais une bière de plus de cette brasserie qui me laisse perplexe.

Theydon_Bois (17228) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle at home, from the De Molen shop, 07/12/13. Murky amber/orange/brown with little in the way of a head. Nose is sweet sugars, cake mix, dark fruits, treacle toffee, light boozey notes. Taste comprises sweet sugars, cake mix, stewed dark fruit syrup, hoppy notes evident, booze laced caramel sauce. Full bodied, fine carbonation, keeps this sipper a sipping, sweet finale with a coating of booze. Decent enough barley wine, but no world beater.

RexTalionis (3522) - FINLAND - DEC 2, 2013
Bottled. Clear amber in color with a tan head. Pine, sweet marmelade, honey sweetness and orange peel fruityness in aroma. Nice. Creamy apricot, some nuttyness and orange sweetness in taste. Notes of toffee and sweet liqour in aftertaste.
