Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - MAY 20, 2012
500 ml swingtop. Murky amber with scads of partiuculate floaties, thick white head. Somewhat fruity aroma, sweet caramely malts. Rather sweet flavor, caramel and a hint of tropical fruitiness. Finish is sweet with boozy esters late.

Bottle at Erzbierschof Monday Club. Very, very sweet. Sticky. Almost artificial. Pine, candy. Okay.

Bill Becker (751) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Pours a cloudy rusty brown with an inch of foam. Tilting my glass from side to side reveals lots of nice lacing. Big caramel malt in the nose. There must be some oxidation as I also perceive a butterscotch note or two. Caramel malt up front in the taste. Oxidation? Yep. Not at an extreme stage so enough aboot that. Hints of dark fruit with each sip. Warming but not hot as a properly brewed Barleywine should be. Body borders on full. Smells, tastes and feels like a Barleywine brewed in the UK. Mission accomplished by this Italian brewery.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2015
500ml bottle, from Dutch’s. Shared. I don’t know how old this is, but it’s been in our cooler for I think at least 3 years. Hazy orange amber color. Ring of off-white head. Sort of hazy with lots of bigger particles in the body. Malty, fruity, mild vegetable in the aroma. Some nuttiness. Moderate sweet taste, mild dry finish, mild alcohol warmth on the end. A little musty, malty for sure, but doesn’t have the level of oxidization as I feared. Nice fruity notes, really. Nice prune, bit of ripe apricot. Medium to bigger body, though a bit thinner than expected. Mild slick finish. Kind of creamy. Solid, interesting malt heavy barleywine. Seems to have survived the age alright. I suppose it helps being kept in a cold dark cooler for it’s whole life.

drsordr (2183) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2015
Bottle shared by DrSilverworm pour hazy gold brown with no head. Nose sweet malt, apple, prune, honey, and some toffee. Taste big sweet flavors, similar to nose, some raisin as well. Late palate light bitterness. Light warming in the finish. Hides 10% pretty well.

alexsdad06 (8434) - Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2015
500 ml bottle shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a slightly hazy orange golden color with a thin off white film. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, orange citrus, marmalade, syrupy mouthfeel but with a thin body, soft carbonation, caramel, dark fruit, the alcohol is well hidden, definitely sweet, nothing offensive.

JDBaker11058 (1790) - Maryland, USA - SEP 3, 2015
Appearance: clear amber/orange, completely flat, slightly syrupy. Aroma: apricots, almond paste, vanilla, oak, and sherry. Taste: stale cardboard, sweet marmalade, orange peel, damp basement, light buttered popcorn. Finish: lingering syrupy flat sweetness. Notes: A swingtop bottle, I think, does not allow for extensive aging and transport. Bottle was completely flat and flavors were a muddled mess. Bottle from Sarah for Beerthday 2015.

NordicV (1821) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JAN 22, 2015
Gulorange, dimmig öl i stort sett helt utan skum. Söt doft med karamell och honung. Smaken är om möjligt ännu sötare, med inslag av bubbelgum. Saknar något som balanserar upp all sötma.
