Drobna, kremowa piana, w postaci kożuszka dość długo się utrzymuje. Barwa brązowo czerwona, klarowna. W aromacie słodowo - suszone owoce, karmel, zioła, syrop na kaszel... W smaku podobnie, z tym że dochodzą słodkie owoce kandyzowane, rodzynki, miód, lekka kwaskowość mandarynek, likier i jałowiec czy coś podobnego, co jeszcze bardziej kojarzy się z nalewką ziołową czy lekarstwem. Goryczka niska, wysycenie bardzo niskie, treściwe i pełne w odbiorze, choć nie gęste czy oleiste.
Bardzo dziwny Barley Wine, poza klasycznym bukietem dochodzi tu cała masa ziół i lekko cytrusowa kwaskowość. Mimo prawie 2,5 roku leżakowania alkohol wciąż mocno się wybija, pojawiła się też lekka nuta miodowa i porto.

Benzai (13881) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2016
Bottle @ home. Opaque muddy brown color, average to medium sized off-white head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is malts, don’t get much more initially but I have to say the beer was very cold. After warming up a not unpleasant lightly sticky resinous hop aroma comes through. Taste malts, sweet, dark malts, a hint of red berries in the distance, some alcohol, medium but lingering bitter finish. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. At first I thought it tasted a bit harsh sort of speak, but this is a perfect exemple of a beer which really improves after warming up. A nice slow drinker, a fine barley wine.

electrotype (653) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2016
Très laide visuellement, d’un bran sale et assez flatte. Un peu à l’image de l’étiquette, ma foi très douteux. Ça sent cependant assez bon : c’est d’un mielleux foncé, c’est sucré et doux. L’expérience en bouche confirme le tout. Ça manque de vie et c’est un peu trop sucré pour mes goûts personnels, mais ce n’est pas raté non plus. Bof.

Beerhammaren (1656) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAR 27, 2016
.5l bottle from Norway. Tnx Aleksi. Pours murky reddish copper with low head. Aroma is plums, dried fruits, resins, alcohol, malts, burned sugar, fruits, caramel and strawberry. Flavor is mostly same. Swell!

matbli (251) - Poznań, POLAND - MAR 12, 2016
Bottle 500 ml, pours tea colour with high pillowy head that reduces to an ideal lacing after a while. Aroma of caramel, tropical fruits, red berries, honey, spices and some wine notes. In taste medium sweetness that is very fast getting overhelmed by high and a bit ashy bitterness. Body is medium. I prefer a bit less bitter an a bit more sticky barley wines but still it’s a nice brew.

Dark woody brown colour with thin head. Really sweet aroma. Malts and dried fruits dominate. Some fruit cake and dates. Sweet and warming.

SlackerMads (2855) - DENMARK - FEB 20, 2016
Bottle. Hazy chestnut brown with a medium sized beige head with ok retention and lace. Sugar, wood, earth and berries in the nose. Flavour has syrup, wood, earth, caramel, dried sweet fruit, light coffee. Full body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, warming alcohol, light salty. Carries the alcohol ok. Ugly label.

Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 3, 2016
500ml bottle, batch 666, received from OleR in April 2014, many thanks. Stored in my cellar and finally shared at a session with djoeye and Finn. Decent fawn-coloured head covering a dark ruby coloured body. Spotty lacework. Inviting aromas of dried fruits and brown malts. Good taste of red and black berries, raisin, caramel and dark fruit. Jam-like impression. Welcome roasted malty bitterness to the ending joined by warming heat from the alcohol. Full bodied. Well made sipper (Tromsø 01.02.2016).

Finn (6291) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2016
Flaske 500ml - batch 666 - spandert av Ole Richard. Delt med djoeye og Rune i WCveien 1 Feb 15. Rødbrun. Lavt skum. God fruktaroma - på grensen til sherry. Smaken sammensatt. Svisker & mandler. Søt. Farlig lett-drikkelig. Alkoholen merkes ikke. Et utmerket øl.
