Travlr (11867) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 2, 2010
Draught at Borefts Beer Festival 2010. Resembles a port wine more so than a beer, but tasty enough, and hides its alcohol well.

Alengrin (1725) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Ultra-strong barley wine matured on cognac barrels, and I suppose the cognac remaining in the wood has helped a lot to boost the alcohol level. Thin off-white head, misty bronze colour. Complex and powerful aroma of honey, liquorice, cognac, wood, vanilla, mint, raisins, pear syrup. Very complex taste, sweet exotic fruits, honey sweetness of the kind I love in a good barley wine, velvety and vinous mouthfeel, touches of port wine and candi syrup, candied fruits, warm alcoholic, brandy-like finish but still elegant, though the initial sweetness sticks a bit.

MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle @ tasting, courtesy of deanso. The original 18cl bottle, red waxed. Very cool. Pours a clear amber beer with almost no head on top. Aroma is rather strange, loads of booze and brandy, caramel and oak. Flavor is very sweet, boozy and has some woody influences. Very sweet and vineous, almost like port. Age has smoothened the edges off this beer, but it’s still mostly an alcohol bomb, unbalanced. Quite ok to drink though, but I’m happy it comes in small servings.

kermis (5061) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle shared. Pours clear brown with no head. Aroma is a little vegetal, caramel, sweet malt, carrot, cabbage. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.

vtafro (3427) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2014
(Backlog) Bottle. Brown pour with very low carb, tan bubbles. Fruit and sweet aromas. Flavor is dominated with huge sweetness, fruit, spice, and malt tones; abv of 17% somehow is the backburner.

Staffan47 (873) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2014
Flaska 2010 nr 588 på Mikkeller bar Stefansgade. Äntligen! Sökt den här ett bra tag nu. Bra pris dessutom. Doften är fantastisk. Kombo av en weer & vind och en bra gammal Hardys. Torkade frukter, tung och komplex. Känns dessutom som den toppar nu. Världsklass. Blir inte mycket bättre än så här. Ingen störande oxidering. Helt flat. Cognacsfatets bidrag är diskret.

Habanero (2624) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 15, 2014
Bottled. Pours clear amber with a tinty off white head. Aroma of caramel, over riped dark fruit, vanilla, wood and cognac. Sweet flavor that ends up with an alcohol bite. Full bodied, syrupy texture and flat carb. An excellent Barley indeed.

StilleStorm (716) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2014
DWF; My bottle No. 023 of 624. Pours hazy brown with no head. Aroma is dark, dried fruity, nutty, malty, caramelly and vinous. Taste adds sweet. Vinious and warming. Full bodied, low carbonation. Sweet finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2014 Flaske Cardinal. Ingen skum. Fantastisk aroma. Men smaker litt for mye ?vin? alkohol. Sikkert en kanon kvalitets øl men Ikke min favoritt.

Fy tusan så glad man blir när man hittar en öl som den här. Smaken var otroligt fint balanserad med toner av jästkultur, sötma och bär. Kroppen är, som väntat, stor och det här var en upplevelse av magnitud.
