Dark brown color with medium to low darkish head. The aroma is clearly caramel and raisins. The taste is in line with the aroma. Quite sweet too, completely lacking any bitterness. Not really my kind of beer.

Melker (201) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2014
Röda bär, mycket frukt, dadlar, plommon, russin, lite karamell. medel sötma, lätt beska. Nästan lite syrlig.

panacea (50) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2014
2012 vintage. Nose is almost nothing. Maybe some dried fruit sweetness but very subtle. Taste is lots of dried fruit, sweetness and some booze. Body is perfect for the style. Some nose and this beer would be perect.

Ktwse (1836) - SWEDEN - JUN 13, 2014
Pours clear dark brown with a finger of light tan head. Aroma of toffee, vanilla, caramel, light bread, light banana, some basement aromas. Taste is big, bold butterscotch burnt butter sweet, long sweet finish. Body is rich and creamy although with very rich carbonation, which kind of pulls the entire package apart.

bbbeer (577) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Hazy medium brown with small off white head. The aroma is uninspiring with some malt, spice, and skunk. Full body with just a little alcohol. Flavor is much better than expected from the aroma. Good balance of sweet brown sugary malt and herbal hops with some spiciness and pleasantly sour finish. Pretty easy to drink too.

Placeholder rating with just the numbers to get everything into the database before the end of 2013. Proper text should follow in the next 1-3 weeks.

Staffan47 (857) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2013
Efter att nyligen smällt i sig kanske en av de bästa barleywine någonsin är jag ju något kritisk redan innan jag testar denna. Flaska från 2010 på SBWF 2013. Sista exemplaret och bryggmästaren är nöjd över att få sälja den till två killar (Per) som uppskattar öl. Vinös doft. Krämig med smak av karamell.

Vignale (1979) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 3, 2013
Flaska från SB årgång 2010. Mörkt bärnstensfärgad, klar, inga jästrester, lågt skum som snart försvinner. Första doftintrycket är lagrad ost, sedan växer söta dofter av torkad frukt, sött vitt vin, sötlakrits och marsipan. Smaken har mycket sötlakrits, söta äpplen, dessertvin, marsipan och plommon. Lätt men markant beska och lite torrare avslutning. Ganska stiltypskt för en brittisk BW, fylligt med djup smakbild och riktigt gott.

maxwelldeux (3452) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours a cloudy brown color with a moderate off-white head. Nose is very malty with the characteristic dry wine elements of the style. Taste is just a tad sweet with the malty alcoholic backbone so often seen. Interesting, but not my favorite sort of brew.

VsXsV (2144) - Linköping, SWEDEN - APR 30, 2013
Bottle. 2009 vintage. Clear amber liquid with small off-white head. Aroma of dried fruit, toffee marmalade, caramel, port wine and sweet alcohol. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of dried fruit, toffee and caramel. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. A bit over carbonated. Nice stuff.
