lusikka (6343) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a small white head. Aroma of toasted malts, biscuit, wood and strong herbal notes. Rich flavour of strong herbs, biscuit, oak, alcohol, raisins and residual sugar. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and a warming alcohol finish with loads and loads of herbal notes. I liked the port version a lot more than this.

olio (6276) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 2, 2013
33 cl bottle.
Pours dark mahogany red color with a small head. Aroma is sweet with dark fruits, lots of caramel malts, some brown sugar and toffee, faint resinous hops also. Very sweet plum and raisins on the flavor, caramel malts, toffee, wood, some plums and raisin with a hint of vanilla at the end. Alcohol is very well evened out with the sweet fruits and caramel. Soft carbonation, complex and heavy malty body with a sweet lingering finish. Very tasty slow sipper, not as brilliant as the Back Room was though.

b3shine (5573) - Indiana, USA - MAR 26, 2014
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.

jredmond (5458) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 12, 2013
Bottle shared with RB crew. Pours a thick murky brownish black body with no head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, dark fruits, raisins, chocolate and wood. Mouthfeel is medium to full with rich notes of molasses, maple, chocolate, oak, sweet malt, vanilla and dark fruit. I thought this was a wonderful barley wine.

Ferris (4487) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle - Alcohol, licorice, molasses, dark roast and sweet dark fruit barrel notes. Jet brown with a thin rich light brown head. Molasses, soy, licorice and chocolate. Finishes nice and sweet with a bit of barrel and burn on the throat. Great oily mouth feel and everything in balance. A bit darker in look and flavor, but still really good. This is much better than the back room.

reebtogi (4239) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 7, 2013
330ml bottle pours a deep amber brown color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark fruits with some yeast and smoke. Taste is a fruit and chocolate malty sweetness with a herbal hop bitterness with a smoky finish. Medium to heavy body with light carbonation. A nicely done barley wine that is worth checking out.
