Nice reddish colour. Too much carbonation. Aroma of raisons and a little wkisky-like. Taste of caramell and some raisins. I don’t get any "barrel" in the taste.

StilleStorm (672) - 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.

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 (10534) - 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.

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.

Hazy orange without much head. The label doesn’t specify _what_ kind of barrel, but whatever it was, that’s what you smell first -- sweet and buttery. Taste is honey with a buttery rum finish. Not overly complex. Palatte has just enough carbonation to keep the sweetness from becoming sticky.

uckelman (238) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2014
Pours hazy orange amber, no head. Rich fruity, winey aroma. Flavor has orange peel and spices, as well as a bit of vanilla. Medium body, small amount of burn on the finish.
