Labove (427) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 10, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2013 Bottiglietta vintage, barley wine spaziale, in realtà forse troppo alcool al naso, ma perfetto in bocca. Corpo leggerino a dispetto dei quasi 18 gradi.

For my #100 rating. One of the most extreme Barley Wine ever tasted. Complex, alcoholic, amazing. Fantastic!

77ships (3763) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 12, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2012 2010 Vintage bottle@Kulminator: dark red/amber colour with virtually no head that quickly vanishes, very little smell, taste very sweet with lots of Sirop de Liège & brown sugar, cognac jam (patent pending), syrup, sweet malt, caramel, cognac-soaked raisins, almost liquor-like, warming but no alcohol taste, light, flat, amazing stuff, bottle nr. 378 /// draft @ ACBF 2012 / 2012 version: still same syrupy, sticky, messy goodness, love it

ReAle (120) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 24, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2011 On draught @Ma che siete venuti a fà (Rome). Dark amber & red appearance, no foam. Aroma has clear notes of cognac and wood. The taste is sweet with some notes o dried fruits. The alcohol is evident. Full body. Amazing barleywine!

erickok (3533) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - DEC 13, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2012 Brown with a red glow, small head. Lacing is great. Madeira, tutti fruity. Just barely expressive enough. But wow, what a perfect sweet, powerful, rich, interesting, lasting and impressive taste. Mind you, not to try this as first beer of the night. But as a closer it is amazing. To be enjoyed as a great whisky or cognac. (At De Molen tasting) (Rating re-indexed)

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 12, 2012
24/12/2010 Ma che siete venuti a fà (tap). Bevuta al Macche con Pippi. Ambrata scura, intensa, con riflessi rubino, schiuma praticamente assente. Intensissimo aroma, fruttato, caramellato, con forti note di cognac e alcool. In bocca ha un sapore dolciastro, forte e aggressivo, con note di ciliegia, more, lamponi, frutta secca e legno, con finale secco. Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. Pericolosamente alcolica. Barley Wine straordinario. Bevuto fresco alla spina, chissà invecchiato...

pilsnerrogge (2497) - Finspång, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2010 On tap at Monk’s Porter House, Stockholm:
Pours a dark amber colour with a steady head. Sweet, malty caramel aroma with notes of raisins. Flavour is sweet and has notes of malt, sherry and raisins. Tastes a lot like Thomas Hardy’s Ale.

magdalar (513) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 30, 2013
Bottle at Mikkeller&Friends. Pours a dark red with no head. Smells of cognac and red fruits. Tastes stunning, with dark overripe berries, fig, raisin, sweet brown sugar, aged cognac, some oak. Body is smooth with very little carbonation. Finishes sweet and mildly tart. An amazing offering.
