Bottle - Sweet caramel and mellow balsamic. Cloudy copper. Sweet, lots of dark caramel and nice sweet sugary molasses notes. Not bad.

mcberko (10071) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 7, 2015
Vintage 2009, 330mL bottle, pours a deep rusted opaque burgundy with a tiny white head. Nose brings out lots of cognac, with notes of oxidation, dark fruits, and alcohol. Flavour is extremely sweet, with lots of residual sugars, minimized booze, some caramel and a touch of cognac. The alcohol is very hidden; the sweetness is front-and-centre. Not overly complex, but a nice sipper. Very good.

TorbenJensen (1307) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2015
Slender foaming barley. Sweet aroma. The taste is explosive of sweet caramel, port wine, grapes, plums and a woody taste. It is a sweet barley with clear hints of fruit, heavy alcohol and malt. Soft, round and long finish where sweetness is highlighted. An exquisite beer that despite the sweetness, exudes quality and class.

rikstar (1564) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2014
fles uit 2009 bij speciaalbierpakket.nl vandaan, gedeeld met Bryanvdv. Dik roodbruin en zonder schuim of CO2. Geur is volzoet met overrijp fruit. Smaak is diksap met in de afdronk ook wat cacao en hout tonen. Coqnac is zeker aanwezig, maar ier wel erg zoet.

Fles gedeeld met rikstar. Totaal geen co2, stroperig dik rood bruin troebel. Aroma heeft wat appeligs. Smaak is zoet, alcohol, iets medicinaals. Te veel vh goede voor mij.

bottle, supplied by the generous tall and bald one himself, opened in 2014. reddish amber with traces of sediment and thin head; aroma of stonefruits, trail mix, strawberry jam; plenty of jam and marmalade flavours, red berries, mellow alcohol, light vinous character suggested by the oak. held up pretty well

Theydon_Bois (13535) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2014
Bottle split at Bruce’s, big thanks to Leighton for digging this one up, 08/04/14. Lightly hazed amber with a moderate off white covering/edgeing. Nose is tarte fruit, spice, bitter citric rind, orange peel, caramel, dates. Taste comprises dark fruit rind, prunes, stoned fruits, Xmas cake, spice. Full bodied, fine carbonation, drying booze charged finale. Solid barley wine, plenty of depth and flavour and drinks fairly easily considering the ABV!

Leighton (14752) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Bottle shared in London - huge thanks to Anders for this one. Pours lightly hazy, golden-brown with a foamy, off-white head. The nose has rich bread, some toffee, golden raisins, hints of butter. Big sweet flavor with heavy golden raisins, dates, rich pale bread, white sugar, stewed apples. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Rich, lightly warming finish, tons of sugary bread, moderate fruits, more golden raisins, pale toffee. Delicious. Extremely decadent and hefty but really damn tasty.
