3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to Baggio for the bottle
Dark orange brown color, half finger of off white head that went to nada very quickly. Obvious ABV legs.
nose is of dried salted pork, quite odd but nice. Underneith the pork nose was dried cherries, strawberries, apricots and a lot of near burnt caramel. Big nose.
Big and rich taste and feel. Still a bit of pork taste but big caramel backbone followed by stone fruits . Big bodied, obvious alcohol, and low carbonation.

Dark brown, decent head. Aroma: oxidised green apple, oats, tobacco, tomato juice. Taste has similar notes, plus some wood, honey, more pronounced tobacco, leather, green leaves and raisins. Bittersweet. Velvety body. Complex and unexpectedly good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Recht dick und ebenso stark mit angenehmer Trinkbarkeit, etwas an Würze, einiges Früchten und einer gewissen Säure. Vollmundig, dem Alkohol durchaus zugetan und leicht getreidig. Dennoch belebend und befriedigend.

Bottle from a trade. The beer has got a hazy dark brown colour with a smooth head and smooth body. Aroma of barley, malt and bread. Taste of intense barley, cookies, barrel, malt, rum, roisins, straw and fruits. Intense finish. Nice and good one.

Flaska på Örebro Öl & Whisky Festival. Flaska från 2014 - tyvärr hade flaskorna från 2013 redan tagit slut innan jag gav mig på den! Denna fick jag tag i i slutminuterna, tack för det! Brundisig med brunbeiget skum. Doft av russin och choklad. Återspeglas fint i smaken tillsammans med ekfat, honung och kola. Mm vad gott! Hamnar högt på listan av dagens öl.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
bottle @ home. 2010 vintage. brown color with redish notes and a small but quite stable tan head and really nice lacings. Aroma is grainy, malty and with a clean medium caramel sweet note at the same time with moderate vinous notes and warming alcohol. Balancing dark fruits (raisins, dates, figs), toffee, dark syrup. Smooth and sweet texture with long duration, increasing mouth feel and then a dry but still very very smooth and delicate honey after taste. Initially lots of toffee, some honey, whipped cream,light vinous figs, rye bread, herbs, sweet red fruits, a little licorice and hint of milk chocolate. It has aged incredibly well and will probably continue to do so. It has developed a fantastic smooth texture where the your beer was sour and harsh in comparison, and is still just slightly vinous!

A barley wine with firm and fairly durable foam is rare, but it is nonetheless what the Baron has. It draws the finest lace on the side of the glass, leaving carbon sparkling cascades from the scattered islands of foam who refuses to drop their take from this beautiful copper red ale. It exudes an incredibly good aromas of dried fruits (prune and raisin) and the taste is velvety and delightfully of fruit and some light caramel and have weak associations with port wine. I think it will gain much by long-term storage, and I annoyed me to take just this one bottle that I have stored for about 1 year. I should probably have had some bottles lying in another 3-5 years, for here is really a possibility that it becomes something heavenly ale. Long fruity aftertaste keep alive very long and slowly heat comes from its 9% alcohol creeping in the mouth. A very light and unobtrusive hop bitterness with floral notes flying past and maintains all the aroma and taste sensations for even longer time. It’s probably one of the most accomplished barleys I have long tasted as though alcohol sharpness certainly will quiet down after a few more years of storage, I must admit that after only one year is drinkable and in the top.
