markextrae (1348) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 30, 2014
bottle in a trade thanks to jeff! shared with a friend. poured a dark murky brown colour with a small off coloured head. aroma starts with sweet caramel, fudge, chocolate, almond, coconut, butterscotsch, sweet complex bourbon, vanilla, oak, some deep dried fruits, plums, rye, bread, sweet malts, realy nice mouthfeel, full bodied, rainsins, nice and full smooth mouthfeel, rye spices, just delicious!! very well hidden alcohol, just one hell of a sipping beer. loved it in every way. compared it to the mother of all storms 2010, since this one has the same age. I like this one a bit less with a 0,1 score. one of the best BA barleywines i’ve had. really deserves a way higher rating as where it is now. delicious stuff!!

maneliquor (3317) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 20, 2014
Bottle cheers to Rob. Pours a dirty Amber with a dirty beige head. Nose is loaded with rye and sweet vanilla. Comes across very oak driven with loads and loads of dirty earth. It’s different. Not everyone at the table liked it but it’s my kind of thing - big and not restrained. The taste is all about the earthiness of the rye with the huge oak this beer shows. Massive vanilla and spice behind it. The palate is really quite creamy and sticky but the bitterness and spice of the rye bring it to a fantastic finish. No sign of the ABV. An absolute top draw BW

Marsiblursi (3042) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2014
(Bottle) Pours hazy deep reddish brown with a nougat coloured head. The aroma holds deep tones of creamy caramel, dried prunes, sticky raisins, aggressive oak (vanilla, coconut and wood shop), spicy rye (almost minty bubblegum-ish), bread and hops with a couple of years on the neck (in the bottle). The flavour is medium to heavily sweet, medium bitter and tiny acidic with notes of dried fruits, fat caramel, bubblegum-ish rye, extreme white American oak, and resinous/earthy hops. The mouthfeel fat, creamy and numbing with a light to medium carbonation. Fat finish. Near full bodied.

_angst_ (3145) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2014
Bomber received in trade. Thank you rfraga7! Pours hazy reddish brown with a thin offwhite head that doesn’t leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet and malty with caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, toasted coconut, charred wood, chocolate fudge, alcohol and hints of sassafras and sweet rye bread. Taste is sweet, tiny bitter and malty with caramel, toffee, charred wood, toasted coconut, bourbon, sassafras, black pepper corns, sweet dark bread, raisins, prunes, vanilla fudge and hints of dark chocolate. Mouthfeel is soft, velvety, slightly boozy, very tiny astringent and near full bodied. Finish is sweet and malty with caramel, toffee, charred wood, toasted coconut, sweet rye bread, vanilla fudge, cocoa powder and hints of sassafras. Luxurious and tasty barrel aged barley wine.

jackl (5050) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Sample @ RBWG, Asheville. Hazy brownish pour with a modest off-white head. Big chewy toffee nose. Vanilla and coffee creamer. Chocolate sundae. Some dark fruit flavors. Raisin cake, prunes. More sweet chocolate with a bit of ashy roasted malts. Pretty rich and fat, oily. Not a game changer, but a really well-done example of the style. Great.
