Bottle. Thanks a bunch KingCecil for this Nice gift! It pours brown with a small white head. The aroma is alcohol, bourbon, dark fruit, molasses, fruity hops and it has a slight acidic touch. The flavour is quite sweet and has notes of sweet caramel, malt, dark fruit, light chocolate, bourbon and brown sugar. Lovely flavour. Oily texture. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bourbon barrel aged awesomeness. Easily my favourite from De Molen and it might be the best barley wine I’ve had. From the first time I tried it in a 18cl bottle it’s been a hunt to get more. Like a heavier and sweeter Thomas Hardys in the most beautiful way possible.

tmrmwel (1790) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2016
Bottle shared with BBGTC, vintage 2014. Pours clear maroon, with a very small rocky head. Aroma is roasted malts with bread, chocolate and toffee, as well as wooden barrels, leather and heather. Full, smooth body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet, roasted malts, with grains, bread, chocolate and toffee, as well wooden barrels and muscovado. Lingering sweet malty notes.

Delicious evening sipper. Classy and tasty stuff.
Black color with a fine tan head. Ok lacing. Solid intensity in the aroma. Full body and a pleasant soft carbonation. Not to sweet, quite balanced. Toffee, vanilla, dried fruits, oak and mild bourbon. Not that high alcohol in the flavor.

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - MAR 21, 2016
Bottle shared by Sabine, cheers! BBA barley wine with very loosely structured, coarse head consisting of irregular yellowish light beige bubbles, quickly dissolving to practically nothing; deep, warm mahogany brown colour with wine red hue and yellowish light brown edges. Strong, perfumey bouquet of old madera, sweet sherry and white port, next to candied cherry, chestnut, old furniture, vanilla tannins, ripe banana, caramelized sugar, honey and, of course, sweet bourbon. Intense candied cherry-, fig, white raisin, banana and ’praline’-like sweetness in onset balanced by a soft basic sourishness, some umami accents here and there; thick and vinous, oily body with expectedly very soft (to almost flat) carbo, but in this case not really impairing drinkability. Middle phase is thick honeyish and caramelly sweetness with a bittering toasted edge in the end, cleverly enhanced by the drying, oaky vanilla tannin-rich woodiness and a long lasting, but never astringent, liqueurish alcohol warmth. English style barley wine on a high level, I can imagine this perhaps being overly sweet to some, but the drying bourbon barrel wood makes for sufficient balance, at least to my personal taste. Very enjoyable and rich, slow winter sipper.

Ysok02 (1047) - MOns, BELGIUM - MAR 1, 2016
Robe brune, reflets ambrés, mousse fine, peu abondante. Nez puissant et complexe où l’on retrouve un coté malté, tourbé, fumé, sur un fond caramelisé et lacté. Bouche à l’attaque ample, une très belle attaque à la fois torréfiée et lactée, de l’ampleur, une bulle onctueuse, de la longueur, de la tension et une finale longue et harmonieuse sur le café. Une très grand bière qui pourrait évoluer sans problèmes.

0,18l bottle from Bierkoning, bottled 2012. Pours clear deep amber with no head. Aroma is sweet nutty malts and alcohol. Flavor is very sweet malts, nuts, caramel and alcohol. Quite sublime.

mgajdaczewa (1715) - Katowice, POLAND - JAN 29, 2016
W aromacie mega bogato, słodowo, karmelowo, mocno dojrzałe owoce, zwłaszcza melon, nieco waniliny odbeczkowej, bardzo dobrze. W smaku nawet lepiej, gładkie, lepkie, potęznie karmelowe i owocowe zarazem, arcyprzyjemny melonowy posmak na finiszu. Goryczka niska, alkohol leciuutko sie odznacza, ale halo, to ma ponad 16%! Bardzo smaczne! Thanks @Douberd
