From tap at Arendsnest. Pours hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma is fruity, wineous and thick malty. Sweet, light sugarish and solid hoppy, pine and grapefruity. Dense malty and sweet. Light dryness with the bitterness into the finish.

Bottle from Bierkoning, Amsterdam, bb 13.1.2013
Cloudy amber color; small head, but persistent. The aroma is full and malty, with light fudge, very Thomas Hardy’s like; later there is a very light cheesy impression. Full bodied barley wine, with very good malt flavor, some fudge, rich, sweet, round; light nutty touch; the bitterness is quite elevated, surely balanced; and the warming alcohol is a pleasant complement.
A bit more American than the classic Thomas Hardy’s Ale, more intriguing than all the American hop monsters.

Borefts warm up at Bier Temple, Amsterdam. Hazy deep red beer. A few white bubbles for a head. Smooth palate, a little dry. Rich barleywine - cherry dominated fruits. Toffee malt. A little marmalade citrus, mildly bitter. Stuck together with nice malt cream. Tasty BW. And Hi Thomas - hope you are enjoying school again! :)

brokensail (9918) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 2, 2012
A clear amber color with a small off-white head. Tons of caramel, brown sugar, and toffee sweetness. If that wasn’t enough, a ton of dark fruit as well. Mild hop notes of citrus, perhaps a hint of pine. Tastes incredibly sweet, but just enough pine and citrus hops to add a light bitterness. Tons of brown sugar, toffee, and caramel. Great cherry and raisin fruitiness as well.

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2013
Tap at Beer Temple - Amsterdam. Pours clear, rich ruby with a very light, white foam head. Nose is heavy with rich caramel and overripe fruits. Hugely sweet flavor with sticky sugars, caramel, orange, light pine, dates, golden raisins. Full bodied, chewy, with soft carbonation. Moderate warmth to finish with tons of chewy, ripe fruits and big, sticky sugars. Very sweet but also very rich and flavorful.

bierkoning (9819) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2012
Bottle. Dark amber color. Dried figs and grassy hops in the aroma. Sweet flavor, malty with dried figs, grassy and citric hops and partly hidden alcohol. Full bodied, thick on the tongue. How they manage to get such a big hop flavor in a barley wine with only 56 EBU. Delicious!
