Malt aroma with hints of orange and chocolate. The flavor is sweet malt with chocolate undertones, some caramel and alcohol. An okay beer, but it does not really give me the "kick", can not say exactly why. Should probably try this again!

Ar: Dark fruit, jam, marmalade, vanilla, alcohol, Brown sugar, extremely rich. Ap: Ruby colour, medium beige head. F: Boozy, although the bottle is two years old, it is noticable hot. Some roastiness dark Fruit and malts, jam, dark fruit and brown sugar. M: Full bodied soft bubbles.

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.

fletchfighters (1285) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 2, 2012
2012 Vintage 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. Nice barleywine.

Flaska från SB. Kopparfärgad vätska. Söta druvor och daddlar i doften. Daddlar återkommer i smaken med en häftig skjuts av humlebeska. Fruktig och eldig. God.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2012
2009 bottle c/o Rich. Pours cloudy orange and brown with a medium creamy beige head. Aromas of mild citrus peel, a bit funky, with toasted/buttery oak, alcohol, and raisins. The flavor is sweet toffee and burnt caramel, light grass, and a crisp malt finish. Bitter citrus is also present, with slight alcohol as it warms. Low carbonation and creamy with a dry finish. Really nice. Thanks! [923]
