ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2010
33cl, red waxed bottle, #571/840, dated 5/13/09 courtesy of madmitch76. thanks, ken! pours a very dark, hazy, russet/reddish brown with a thick, beige head and sticky rings of lace. aroma is great, very barleywine-esque, with bold, pungent, spicy hops, huge pine esters, and juicy fruit notes of orange and grapefruit backed by light florals, toffee, and hints of earth and wet leaves. flavor is delicious as well with smooth, nutty caramel malts adding a bit of sweetness and balancing the citrus hop notes of orange and lemon with hints of earth, herbal pine, and darker fruit notes of fig and date on the back end. palate is full bodied with smooth carbonation and a nice bit of warmth arriving late in the swallow after the bittersweet finish. overall, this has definitely turned into a delicious, hoppy, american style barleywine.

Nickls (1829) - SE DC, Washington DC, USA - SEP 16, 2010
Bottle. Poured with a half-finger of light tan head that stayed pretty well; deep coppery brown color with ruby hints. Grassy and spicy hop bitterness in teh aroma, and a bit tame at first but more and more prominent aroma as it warmed. Spicy, minerally, and earthy hoppiness..interesting combo of flavors. Solid malt backing, and a distinct fruity finish with a touch of sweetness.

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2010
Bottled. An unclear brown beer with a brown head. The aroma has quite strong notes of hops on a malty background. The flavor has notes of alfa acid and hops combined with malt, leading to a hoppy finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 19, 2010
Taster at the Rake, 14th May 2010, with tdtm82. Murky reddish orange appearance. Nose has maho, port, cherries, oak chips and tons of alcohol. In the mouth it’s sweet and rich like JW Lees Harvest Ale. Many sweet flavours of marshmallow, sherry and icing sugar but the hopping ensures a dry finish. Dangerously drinkable, this is another impressive De Molen beer.

jerohen (1992) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2010
Bottled. Opaque black, thick brown head. Complex nose, malts, hops, coffee. Malts and some notes of caramel in flavor, quite bitter. Pretty good stuff.

tdtm82 (668) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2010
Dissapointing on the appearance. Very good dry hops. Lemony dry aftertaste. A little sour element among the amarrilo hops. Just a solid IPA. Caramel malt and citrus hops. Alcohol not over top but don’t down this baby. Menno, a pleasure! Love this.
