Bottle. Deep brown liquid with small light tan head. Aroma of dried fruit, raw sugar, oak, port wine, bread, toffee and caramel. Taste is light to medium sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of wood, port wine, vanilla, raw sugar and toffee. Medium to full bodied with low to medium carbonation. Really good.

Cervesa molt fosca amb poca presència d’escuma, tant en nas com en boca es nota molt la fusta. Cerveza muy oscura con poca presencia de espuma, tanto en olfato como en gusto se nota mucho la madera.

Very good barleywine. Its strong wooden smell along with its oak-like taste makes it a beer worthy to taste.

Bottle to snifter (shared with the group; thanks DuffMan). Looks good; a translucent darker brown with very thin light beige lacing. Smells good too; sweet and malty with notes of oak, vanilla, and a touch of earthiness. Tastes like it smells with notes of raisin and a nice, sweet, slightly vinous mouthfeel. Good beer!

11.2 oz bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a clear brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have dark caramel malts, dark fruits, wood, a hint of smoke, sweeter barrel notes I can assume came from the Malaga. This is solid and tasty.

11.2oz bottle. Dark brown color. Thin off-white head. Couple bits of lace. Very big dark fruity notes, lots of fig, light vanilla, some caramel malt. Moderate sweet taste, but hides the alcohol much better than the malaga hvedegoop I just tasted. Bigger body. Smooth, slick, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Nice raisins, good barrelly light vanilla notes. Pretty tasty, rich, nice complex barleywine. Big sweetness doesn’t bother me here. Awesome dates, dark fruits, raisin aromas, hints of chocolate.

dfearnley (1135) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle to tulip Port, Grand Marnier, brandy, soy, toffee, a hint of chocolate, coffee, and currants. Silky and slick black, practically no head. The taste is like I’m sucking on the cheesecloth that has just been pulled off a fruitcake. There’s a little chocolate there, but the rest is rum and dark fruits.

Brown, hazy liquid, small beige head. Vineous sweet aroma, hints of higher alcohols. Rich and very smooth, sweet taste and moutfeel with some warming alcohol. Leaves a slight burning sensation. Pretty great.
