UPDATED: OCT 7, 2013 2013-07-03: 7,3,7,3,14=3.4. Bottle at Sour & Bitter #2. Dark brown close to black with a minimal off white head. Barrel, prunes, figs, vinous, oxidized, toffee, sherry. Taste is near heavy sweet and medium bitter. Full body, oily/creamy texture, soft/flat carbonation.

Bottle. Opaque dark brown, minimal beige head. Taste notes are pretty much the same, but I think I’m just more in the mood for this kind of thing today than when I first tried it. Really hides the alcohol well. Good stuff to treat yourself with on a winter evening.

DrSilverworm (6575) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 26, 2014
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.

Satyroneto (108) - - JUN 19, 2014
Cor marrom escura com sedimentos em suspensão; espuma amarelada de baixa formação e baixa persistência quase sem lacing; Aroma intenso de frutas vermelhas e vinho do porto; toque leve de torrado; com o aumento da temperatura o torrado torna-se imperceptível e surgem notas de vinho tinto que se somam as notas de frutas vermelhas e vinho do porto; Sabor de início doce de frutas vermelhas e vinho do porto e final que aquece a boca; retrogosto levemente adocicado lembrando frutas vermelhas; Corpo leve e um pouco licoroso e sedoso com baixa carbonatação. ---Rated via Beer Buddy by Sátyro

NeuroPliny (159) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 17, 2014
Poured from a 330cc bottle. Colour is hazy dark brown. Head is tan and minimal. Aroma is dried fruit, raisin, brown sugar, and molasses. Flavour is caramel, sweet malt, dark dried fruit, sherry, and hints of fig and chocolate. Despite that description it is not too sweet. Awesome!

Drucken på Norrlands Nation. Russin och plommon i doften tillsammans med en sötaktig ton. Tunn kropp, smaken påminner starkt om doften. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
