angel77 (1719) - oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 22, 2015
Botella 50 cl tomada en el momento en Cimmeria 20..11..2015. (r64). Lote 666 Elaborada 18..02..2014 hasta 18..02..2017. Color ámbar miel muy oscuro con espuma beige oscura poco persistente. Aromas y sabores maltosos y cereales intensos rústicos y nórdicos con toques dulces acaramelados acabando con amargo seco persistente. Cuerpo medio de 9.5 vol con cierta sensación alcohólica. Bastante buena. Una barley wine con carácter rústico y bien conjuntado. Para repetir sin duda.

In short: strong harsh barley wine.
Pours hazy copper with nice off white head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Roasty, caramel, molasses, licorice, raisins, dried fruits nose. Full body, soft carbonation, silky texture. Taste is some harsh due to strong roasted malts at the beggining, more slick mouthfeel with tempering, ending quite sweet, robust, some liquor notes. Enjoyable.

huineman (450) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 4, 2015
50 cl bottle, poured into a rhum snifter. Hazy reddish chocolate brown with a tan head that disappears quickly. Very intense aromas of wild honey, dates, plums, bilberry, milk chocolate, orange blossom and a hint of liquorice. Inside the mouth it displays great oiliness and density. Low carbonation, and an immense bitter finish that is rounded by its fine sweet and fresh tones. Grand.

kokkenrolv (179) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2015
Bottle @Apollon, Bergen. Aroma of sweet malts, honey, caramel, alcohol, some dried fruits, some grassy notes. Red brown, small beige head. Medium sweetness, medium bitterness, tastes of alcohol, port, dried red fruits, honey, floral, caramel. Medium body, oily feel, soft carbonation, long bitter aftertaste. Rich and big, close to port wine, suitable for pairing with blue cheese. Maybe it needs even more time (brewed early 2014)?

Light haze on this deep red - amber beer, decent pale tan head. Palate is light and semi dry, modest fine carbonation. Aged tasting malts, woody caramel and a touch of papery spice. Fairly dry finish. Good aged tasting barleywine.

500ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Clear dark copper color. Small size, beige-yellow head, stays. Alcohol, caramel, plums, fruity, blackcurrant in aroma. Almonds, dried black plums, faint smokiness in taste. Walnuts in aftertaste. Nice balance. Alcohol is well covered. Nice one.

500ml bottle (Zmogsala, Vilnius)
Sweet malty walnutty aroma. Tastes of prunes. That’s it, it’s just freaking prunes. I love prunes. If I can put the prunes to the side, I will own up to getting lots of sweet malts, a bit woody, but very walnutty, including the papers carrying the dry dry bitterness. Damn good barley wine. Very full palate, a little sweet, almost sticky, but for a sipper perfectly acceptable. Finish has lovely bitter dry hops. 3.7 may be good for me, but I feel it may be an underrate, as I do enjoy every sip. Each sip more than the previous.

Very fruity, dark fruits. Malty and slightly bitter, bit mostly sweet of course. Not bad. But simple.
