Stor kanske aning spritig doft med tydlig inslag av kola och frukt. Smaken är stor och tjock med en härlig känsla av tjära, lakrits och kola. Något kort eftersmak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I feel like a worm in a tequila barrel, drunk and happy that I'm here. Barley wines are the future, you heard it here first. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2013 Bottle from Systembolaget, 2010 vintage, 10%. Pours hazy amber with a 2 finger brownish head. A lot of carbonation the first minutes. Lots of raisins and figs, burned sugar in aroma. Bitter taste at first, then sweet and then a bit bitter in the aftertaste. Raisins, bread, bitter citrus, sherry notes, warm alcohol. Really nice!

MaartenRF10 (1559) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 15, 2012
Dark copper colour, nice lasting beige head. Aroma is typically barley wine. Taste is dark fruit, some spices, wood notes, hint of vanilla, sweet with some bitterness, some alcohol. Good full body and relatively high carbonated for a barley wine, not too high though.

ChainGangGuy (4351) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 26, 2012
2009 Bottle.

Appearance: Slips out a clear, amber-edged, dark golden body with a smallish, but fairly persistent, near white head.

Smell: An even split of sweet-scented clover honey, simple syrup, and caramel ahead of florals, pureed fruit, and plenty of alcohol.

Taste: Sweet and deeply fruity with toothsome tastes of fresh honey, syrup, and light-colored caramel. Bready base malts. Figgy fruitiness. Mild oxidation giving a hint of sherry. Subdued hop character and bitterness. It’s a bit boozy, the Baronen, particularly on the heated, sweetish finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-light carbonation.

Overall: A beer that barely achieves and never exceeds being merely OK.
