Staffan47 (862) - 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 (2035) - 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 (3552) - 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 (2246) - 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.

adnielsen (9025) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle @ Ratman’s, courtesy of some Swedish friends. Thanks! Pours a hazy reddish brown appearance with a thin cream colored head. Somewhat herbal, caramel, a bit oxidized, a touch fruity aroma. Somewhat strong, light cherry, a bit oxidized, caramel, light paper flavor. Pretty tasty but a bit old.

Leini (740) - SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2013

glennmastrange (2247) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Bottle. Moderate to heavy cookie, roasted and caramel, moderate cooked orange for the hops, moderate dough and leather for the yeast, with notes of date and toffee. Head is small, wispy, off-white with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is murky medium orange/tan. Flavor starts moderately to heavily sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes moderately sweet and lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is medium to full, oily with a almost flat carbonation and a lightly alcoholic and chewy finish. Big and bold aromas and flavors combined with a perfect feel make this a relatively easy drinking Barley Wine.

Cloudy brown beer, nice pale tan head. Palate is airy and a little dry. Rich malt with a little cream. Tiny bit of aniseed. Trace of dried fruits. Orange. Somewhat spicy dry finish. Well joined up tasty barleywine.
