Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, - FEB 4, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a cloudy and almost opaque amber with a small and creamy off-white head. Very spicy, woody nose with a pleasant vanilla touch. Medium body only, very fruity, pleasant subtle and very spicy with a slightly tart edge. The alcohol is surprisingly well hidden. 040213

TheCametron (1777) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours HAzy Amber with a White head that quickly fades to nothing. Quite unusual and enticing aroma. A bit of vanilla and some sweet Manzanilla. Bags of sweet caramel in the flavour with the tiniest whisper of vinegar. Didn’t enhance things. Finishes very dry. It’s a woody beast with too much going on. Didn’t really come together for me.

panacea (65) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2014 Pours very clear dark brown. Thin white head. Nose is sweet peach, raisins and caramel. Taste surprisingly tangy and sour! Like a white citrus wine. Strange but interesting. Medium body

Ktwse (1947) - SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2014
Pours hazy orange amber with low off-white head. Aroma of citrus, orange peel, caramel and butterscotch, light vanilla, slightly boozy nose. Taste is big sweet, lightly fruity and boozy, barrels clearly present. Body is medium to full and creamy with soft carbonation. Boozy, warming finish.

wyzzywyz22 (1961) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle, Beer Moth, Manchester. Dark amber pour with a small white head. Nose revealed notes of caramel malts, fruits and wood. Some barrel character present in the sweet flavour. alongside some vanilla and booze. Dried out somewhat towqrds the finish. Not my favourite De Molen offering but its an above average barley wine.

StilleStorm (703) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUL 26, 2014
DWG; Take away from Szczecin. Pours cloudy amber, moderate lasting, leaving lacing, off-white head. Nose is heavy malt, caramel, alchol, ripe peach, dried fruits, alchol, oak and light spice. Taste is moderate sweet, light bitter and somewhat spicy with a lasting, warming finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily to creamy, carbonation is soft. Rhythm and blues, indeed.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 16, 2014
Rating #1047 - April 1, 2014 - #nofoolin #beerguychrisgeekbeer #week11 for 2014.. Aroma is brown sugar, wild honey, oak, vanilla. Pours a rich golden amber, barely there white head. Medium carbonation, heavy alcohol warmth. Not unbalanced though - the bourbon oaky vanilla sweetness tempered with bold hop notes. Tempered and smooth. Exquisite.

Leighton (10675) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle shared at chriso’s. Pours clear, bright gold with a frothy white head. Some lightly stinging alcohol in the nose, ripe citrus, pine needles. Medium sweet flavor with some infection tang, tart citrus, mild bready sugars. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Tangy citric finish with elements of orange, lemon, some wood. Not bad overall, if a bit atypical.

tomekk1978 (430) - POLAND - JUL 11, 2014
Barwa: jasno bursztynowa, klarowna. Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, niewielka, szybko opadająca i pozostająca jedynie wokół ścianek. Całość zdecydowanie gęsta, oleista, po dolaniu nieco oblepiająca szkło. Aromat: na pierwszym planie aromaty beczkowe typowe dla bourbona, a więc wanilia, alkohol, lekki kokos. Do tego wyraźne nuty owocowe (morele, mirabelki, pomarańcze). Ogólnie całkiem przyjemny. Smak: zdecydowanie pełny, alkoholowy, lekko kwaskowy, faktycznie nieco winny. Dodatkowo karmel, wspomniana wanilia, kokos, owoce. Nieco rozgrzewający finisz. De Molen prezentuje tym razem Barley Wine, nie wiem czy nie pierwsze z tego browaru, jakie próbowałem. Do tego było ono leżakowane w beczkach po bourbonie i zawiera charakterystyczne dla nich nuty. Musi być zatem nieźle. I tak jest w istocie. Barwa, co prawda nieco zbyt jasna, a piana niewielka, ale przy takim poziomie alkoholu wielka być nie musi. Aromat i smak zdominowane są przez nuty bourbona, choć inne także występują. Ogólnie nieźle, choć czegoś mi tutaj zabrakło.
