leghorn99 (232) - Livorno, ITALY - SEP 20, 2014
Il colore è giallo ambrato, leggermente velato dovuto ai residui in sospensione, schiuma quasi completamente assente. Aroma di malto caramellato, Sherry, tracce di whiskey. Il gusto è di caramello mou, note di Sherry e Whiskey con un amaro di noci che si fa sentire ai lati della bocca. Il palato è pieno, morbido leggermente oleoso con una vivace carbonazione. Il finale è lungo e dolce, con persistenza di caramello mou e piacevoli note amare. Ottima Barley Wine, ma troppo impegnativa da bere in solitudine.

Garrold (4253) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle from Beermoth, Manchester. Nearly clear, amber colour. Thin halo of white head. Blimey, this is big! Sweet, boozy grain. Imagine a tin of strawberries, stuck in a pan, and reduced down. With a slug of woody, thick booziness added. Some minty toffee, too. Palate is rich, slick, and fruity. Taste is sweet, boozy, and bitter, all rolled in to one. Finishes chewy bitter. Lip sticky goodness. The Missus loves it. I’m less convinced.

SlackerMads (2866) - DENMARK - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle. Hazy/unclear orange, no head. Sugar caramel, vanilla, coconut, hot alcohol. Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, near heavy sweet, medium bitterness. Sticky and sugary. Ok, but this type of beer has a tendency to wear me out quickly.

Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle shared during the RBESG 2014 London Grand Tasting - Moncada Brewery. Pours clear golden-amber with a mellow foamy head. The nose has nice toffee character, ripe fruits, bread. Hugely sweet with moderate alcohol presence, rich bread, caramel, dry citrus, stewed apples. Big bodied with average carbonation. Warm and sticky to finish, very sugary, with lots of ripe fruits and bready malts. Good stuff but really hefty.

.33cl bottle courtesy of angst, Thanks. Pours hazy reddish brown color with a small beige head that slowly recedes to a fine film. The aroma features toffee, pears, sherry and a trace of whiskey. The taste is big one toffee, sherry and mild whiskey with bitter walnuts filling in the back and sides. The palate was full, smooth and just a bit oil with lively carbonation. Finished long and slightly sweet with lingering toffee and bitters. Overall: First rate BW, much enjoyed--thanks again.

Flaska. Grumlig mahognyfärgad med litet vitt skum. Dofter av trä, apelsinmarmelad, torkad frukt, bourbon och vanilj. Smakinslag av karamell, vanilj, konjak, plommon, brunt socker och söta frukter. Mjuk och rund munkänsla. Stor kropp. Alkoholen sticker igenom vilket gör att det är som att sippa på en calvados eller konjak. Mycket gott.

Brilliant. Displays barrel like a hammer to the face. Smooth easy malt holds the body.
