Poured deep dark reddish brown with a small tan head. Aroma of alcohol soaked dark fruit, sweet roast malt, caramel, plum figs. Full body, flavour is vanilla sweet, quite smooth, much as the aroma, nice and warming.

Lele (128) - Padova, ITALY - AUG 16, 2014
Barley wine veramente spettacolare. Prodotta nel 2009, lasciata invecchiare (se non ho capito male) per sei mesi in botti di rovere francese. Sono stati utilizzati grandi quantità di malto e di luppolo. All’aspetto si presenta di un colore marrone scurissimo, quasi impenetrabile. Schiuma fine, poco abbondante e poco persistente. L’aroma è un vero capolavoro. Già mentre la stai versando, quando hai ancora il naso lontano dal bicchiere, lo senti molto. E’ un aroma decisamente vinoso, sia di vino "normale", che soprattutto liquoroso. Si sente del marsala e del Porto. Subito dopo si avverte del cioccolato e anche del caffè. Tutti questi sapori sono presenti anche al palato. In bocca la birrra evolve. Nella prima parte del sorso si avvertono soprattutto i sentori di vino liquoroso, dolce, caramellato. Ma tutto questo non è mai stucchevole, perché subito dopo evolve in un aspettato amarognolo. All’inizio di questo amarognolo sembrerebbe che ci troviamo davanti al classico amaro da birra. Invece avvertiamo subito un leggerissimo sentore agrumato (da limoncello), accompagnato poi da un gusto secco, tipico dello whiskey, che fa concludere in bellezza il sorso. Un’esperienza unica, le parole decisamente non bastano. Unica nota -diciamo così- "negativa" (se proprio vogliamo trovarne una) è che, per i miei gusti, l’avrei preferita con un corpo un po’ più strutturato. La birra infatti presenta un corpo medio.

Beerconnaiseur (96) - BELGIUM - AUG 3, 2014
19 jan 2016 BB. Aroma from the bottle, unpoured : Toffee, vanilla, slight wood, sugar. From the glass : slightly sticky, viscose, slight booze, licorice, butterscotch, dark melasse, cane sugar, raisins, dates. A fizzy-short-visiting foamhead. Flat but medium-bodied barley wine... gently matured with a cane sugary melasse aftertaste. A spectacle of pungent but mild flavors.

sebletitje (6770) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 30, 2013
Bouteille 25c, de HopDuvel, Anno 2009, BB 19/01/2016. Cuivrée, col moka disparaissant vite, huileux doré sur le verre. Arôme est malté aux effluves prononcées de caramel, un léger grillé et sucré-crystal, chocolat, fruité noir accompagnés d’un BA assez modeste. Palais est râpeux sur un caramel profond avec un boisé agréable laisse de fini notes vanillées - possible bourbon? Fin de bouche reste bien rond et doux. Le houblon arrive plus en retrait offrant un soupçon d’amertume. Palais reste néanmoins centré sur un sec voire poussiéreux surtout venant des notes de boisés. Effervescence est moyenne-basse. Je note aussi en toute fin de bouche une pointe de fumé résiduel complété par un léger fruité noir.

FatPhil (9405) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 2, 2013
250ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki) (sip)
Lovely barley wine aroma, one on the bitter hoppy side of the style rather than the malty side. Lovely vanilla twist - I placed this in Bourbon barrels it was so vanilla-ey. Very serious palate. One where every sip counts. Whilst it’s sweet, it has a really heady bitterness too, and there’s plenty of wood coming out. The finish is the simple continuation of the taste, but that’s lovely, as you can imagine. This is why I like barley wines.

KingCecil (2054) - DENMARK - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle @ home... It pours murky black with a small tan head.... The aroma is bourbon, wood, vanilla and a little sense of roasted malts.... The flavor creamy, wiskey, sweet vanilla, oak with a very nice finish as warming alcohol..... like this....
