Cool_Bond (2209) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - JUL 28, 2014
Malty and caramel aroma. Caramel is best in taste. It has a really "Barley Wine" of saithe in both taste and aroma. The upper part of the mouth gets its bitterness for a long while. But feels most mediocre anyway. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

rarbring (2131) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2012 A clear deep chestnut amber brew, an off-white head, good lacing and some curtains.

Smelling of toffee, muffin batter, butter scotch, nuts and almonds. Some vanilla.

Starting with brown bread, brown sugar, syrup, dates, raisins, sherry, some bitter orange peel. Eggnog.

Medium carbonation, small bubbles, smooth, oily, sticky. A warm feeling (of alcohol), a big body.

A very sweet and warm barley wine. A real candy shot. Wonder how it will mature?

Bottle 330 ml. This was the 2010 vintage, 10% ABV.
