Borresteijn (6495) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2011
33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. ABV 10.5%. Gushed out of the bottle. Cloudy amber colour, big foamy white head. Aroma of sweet bourbon, sweet malts, lots of vanilla, ripe fruits, really nice. Flavour is rather sweet, thick, malty, fruity, vanilla, bourbon, bit of wood, nice bitter malty finish. Fullbodied, firm carbonation. Great barleywine, not overly sweet.

33cl, at 10.5%Vol, new exclusive Dutch brew Anno 2011, from De Bierkoning Amsterdam, complex brew, alcoholic/malty and slightly sweet/woody, heavy, yet balanced, cloudy, nearly no head, good brew, yet expensive!

Phil (181) - Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2011
From the Brewery. 33cl. Pours Gassy, foam receeds. Moderate JD notes on the nose, good wood over the palate with the barley wine. Thinner than expected, far more carbonation. Left to sit whilst getting on with some stuff on the web, sipped slowly. Impressive, for drinking, not a hot gluey mess, although I do like those too. Impressed.

goozen (3847) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2011
Bottle 0,3ltr: Hazy brown coloured brew with an nice slightly burning mouthfeel due the Jack Daniels barrel, taste of vanilla and dried fruits. Great brew, once put an Chimay Red away for proximity ten years and gets almost the same taste as this "White Label" version.

ads135 (4254) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 19, 2011
Barleywines are hit or miss. The caramel and plum sweetness is accentuated by the Jack Daniels aging. Vanilla notes and smooth throughout. Tried at BBF, 2011.

bogus (97) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2011
33cl bottle from De Molen. Dark amber with small head. Nose of vanilla, whisky, barley, peat/jack daniels. Mouthfeel is quite "flat" because of the low carbonation. Taste: vanilla, caramel malts, slight bitterness. Aftertaste is bittersweet. Very nice!

Koelschtrinker (17705) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 13, 2011
Recht süßer Antrunk, der aber noch in Ordnung geht. Die Würzigkeit ist angenehm, besonders der Hintergrund bietet eine leicht alkoholische Kräuternote. OK! 7/9/8/8//9

PotjeBier (2744) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2011
33 cl bottle from De Bierkoning @ home. Gusher, alas. Murky amber to brown color. Overfoaming, off white. But then: fantastic aroma of JD/whiskey, oakwood, vanilla, caramel, sweet fruit. Flavor is sweet, sticky toffee, sweet fruit. Pretty strong alcohol feel, quite full body, syruppy. Finishes with more whiskey, a bit of ash, a slight bitterness. Love this.
