Ungstrup (34004) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2006
A hazy amber beer with a light orange head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of hops, as well as lighter notes of alcohol and caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with primary notes of caramel, but also a light metallic note from the alcohol, leading to a dry alcoholic end, where the alcohol burns slightly in the top of the throat.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Slightly hazy amber colour with a nice, creamy, yellowish brown head. Lovely aroma of sweet caramel and aroma hops. Full body with lots of sweetish caramel flavours and aroma hops. Some slightly medicinal notes. 211006

omhper (23001) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Hazy nut brown. Severely malty with tick and extremely syrupy mouthfeel. There’s plenty of grapefruity hops, but they drown in an ocean of syrup. Sticky bitter finish. Very raw and unrefined, hopefully some time in the cellar can mature the stickyness away, but I doubt it’ll ever become great.

fiulijn (18577) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle from the brewpub on Pike st., vintage 2011, 2+ years old, 9.9% ABV
Hazy amber color with thin head. Vanilla scented caramel, the aroma is very old school (American school). Sweetish but not syrupy, with good malt and toffee flavor; correct bitterness, with final hop resins.
Not an exciting Barley Wine, nevertheless a good strong beer.

Oakes (15294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 13, 2005
Golden-amber colour. Aroma has off-phenols. Rich brown sugary character with butter and nuts. That would make a good dessert, but as a barley wine, it’s a little odd. Warming finish. Long, tasty finish.

bhensonb (13832) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Likely quite fresh. Pours a ruddy copper with a slight off-white head. Aroma is quite malty/syrupy with just a touch of piney hop. Full bodied with mild carbonation. Flavor is pine over sweet caramel, along with lighter stone fruit. Nice. Finiishes more sweet than bitter. It has a very nice aftertaste.

mcberko (13483) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 13, 2011
3 oz. sample on tap at Brouwer’s Café for Hard Liver, pours golden orange. Aroma of citrus hops, tropical fruits and sweetness. Flavour of the tropical fruits, caramel and cotton candy – cloyingly sweet finish. Quite decent.

argo0 (13021) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 31, 2004
(2003) Lightly hazed copper body with minimal beige head. Aroma is sweet, syrupy, butterscotch, caramel, some citrus, light alcohol. Taste is quite sweet, caramel, butter, the citrus finally getting its due in the finish, sharing with light alcohol. Syrupy full body with minimal carbonation. The highlight is the finish, which for a brief moment shines.
