fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 24, 2012
Courtesy of Jan (fonefan); vintage 2011
Cloudy orange-amber color; creamy head. Thye aroma is quite spicy, a bit fruity, with an impression of plastic. Good body, with strong carbonation; sweetish; the fermentation produced some byproducts, like a feeling of cabbage; the alcohol is too present.
Too much.

Rune (7958) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2012
The 330ml 2011 vintage bottle with lotto 214-11 was bought in late March 2012 at Johnny’s Off License (Via Veio) in Roma. Cloudy amber coloured body, slightly off-white head fading to a patchy surface. Spotty lacing to the glassware. Spiced fruity aroma, hints of apricot and herbal hops. Subdued vapour of alcohol. The taste character has got a bittersweet citrus peak with candy sweetness and yeasty fruitiness beneath. Lingering bittersweet ending with noticeable alcohol. Soft in the mouth. Full bodied. Enjoyed for about an hour at home in Tromsø, 30.12.2012.

rosenbergh (6662) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 21, 2013
330 ml bottle. Vintage 2012. Lotto 212 12. BB 07/2017. From Italy. Courtesy of brandman.
Hazy brown colour with a tiny tan head. The aroma is very weak... surprisingly weak for a 10% barley wine... very sweet. The flavour is also super sweet with some alcohol and mild... nothing... Very sweet and not much more.

sebletitje (6624) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2014
Bouteille 33cl de Roy’s Beer, Milano. Reserva 2013, 12%, bottle #3912, BB 31/08/2018, lotto# 231/13. De couleur orangée-ambrée, col fin blanc cassé. Arôme est profond au niveau fruité fermenté, petit bouquet de barrique tirant sur le vin blanc. Rétro-nasal mielleux et complexe avec une petite touche surette. Palais rappelant une bière de DeDolle avec une influence très belge, les 12% ressortent fort bien, fruité fermenté rappelant l’abricot, miel et pointe de barrique. Le tout est un peu liquoreux, collant au lèvres sur des notes sucrées (brun?). A déguster à son aise, complexe et intéressante, très belge dans l’inspiration mais avec ce petit plus italien fort appréciable.

KyotoLefty (6273) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 17, 2013
Bottle. Nose of caramel, peaches, esters, marmalade, alcohol. Orange-brown with lace. Flavors of pineapple, orange, peach, lovely flavors but still far too alcoholic and not integrated. Very tangy, but mostly hot. Should have waited 5 more years.
