harrisoni (17278) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle grand tasting RBESG14. Hazy amber no real head. Candied tangerine. Sweet. Barrel ageing helps the beer. Pretty decent. Like it really. Nice.

olio (9278) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 14, 2014
33 cl bottle. BBE 12/2015.
Pours cloudy mahogany color with a minimal head. Lots of sweet fruits and toffee on the nose, caramel malts, some biscuits, bourbon, wood and faint syrup. Sweet apricot and sugary caramel on the flavor, lots of bourbon, mild vanilla also. Soft carbonation, full-bodied, nice warming alcohol burn on the finish. This might be too sweet for some but it’s just the right amount for the alcohol content. Very good.

Melker (253) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2014
Deep mahogny color, bone white head. Super nice aroma of bourbon, caramel, oak, dried fruits, vanilla, hints of smoke. Taste is very sweet and very heavy. Some nice bitterness also. Alcohol is well hidden. Really love these heavy and sweet barley wines but one bottle is too much, had to share with a mate.

Thought this was exciting and different. The aroma and taste differs. Aroma has lots oF bourbon, taste has more sugar. Complex and nice IF a bit sweet. Too much with 33cl...

Leini (1807) - SWEDEN - JUN 15, 2014
330ml bottle. Hazy amber body with pretty very low head. Aromas of vanilla, caramel, dried fruits, oak and fudge. Distinct flavors from the bourbon barrel, followed by alcohol, dark fruit pepper and syrup.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2014 Bouteille. De Molen Shop.Robe ambrée lumineuse , quasi absence de mousse. Nez malté , caramélise ,praliné légèrement boisé. Alcool très présent . Bouche ronde très sucré , le caramel et la praline dominent , puis des notes de vanilles , de pruneaux et de chêne enrobent cette bouche gourmande. On sent bien les arômes typiques du bourbon. La final est alcoolisée avec des notes de cerises confites . Corps liquoreux et plat. Un barley wine très chargée a boire en digestif et a réservée aux amateurs du genre. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alcohol and yeast is what I feel most of the smell. Very heavy taste of licorice, oak and alcohol. A heavy bitterness that more passes to alcohol flavor and fills the mouth a long time. What I like about this so I would not recommend it. It was not really my Barley Wine beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

beer_est_deus (1147) - örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2014
Oklar bärnstens färgad med ett mycket litet och orange skum. Doft: Alkohol, fat, kola, nötter, grymt övermogen citrus, gummi. Smak: Samma som doft men inget gummi + fat, söt humle. Alldeles för mycket alkohol i både doft och smak, särskilt i smaken.

hackobock (3486) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2016 July 3, 2016. Bottle at home.
Hazy reddish amber with a small off-white head leaving a small ring around the edge. Aroma is sweet caramel, prunes, figs, bourbon, notes of oak and toasted coconut, orange marmalade and some alcohol notes with hints of solvent. Taste is sweet malty, light bitter and warming alcohol. Finish is slightly hot and lingering bourbon alcohol with some sweet toffee, toasted nuts, wood, figs and prunes. Medium bodied to full bodied, oily texture soft carbonation.
Good, a bit hot finish and some higher alcohol notes in the aroma though.

Original rating.
