Wicker, grain, subtle peanut hulls, and overripe orange nose. clear orange, medium head. a tad swee, overripe orange the predominate flavor with peanut skins toward the end. Finishes more bitter. a little hot on the back ewnd, but it’s a barleywine. Rustic and dirty.

dEnk (3912) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2012
Bottle @ home. Aroma is porty red fruit, caramel malt, apple cider, some spice, grenadine. Flavour is red fruit, caramel malt, some spices. Touch of alcohol. A bit old (it’s an old bottle) but still okay.

rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2006
[Draught SBWF, Stockholm] Hazy amber colour. Strawberry juice aroma, along with cabbage and diacetyl. Pretty weird aroma in a Barley Wine if you ask me. Sweet, with dried fruits in favour with a smooth mouthfeel, and somewhat maltbitter.

maxwelldeux (3761) - 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.

Vaiz (3524) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2012
Bottle. Aroma is spicy, some madeira, sugary and some alcohol. Flavor is slightly bitter, some alcohol and quite spicy. Nice smooth flavour, a bit old though.

mansquito (3513) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 19, 2012
New Beer Distributors, NY 330ml ($3): 2009 bottle. Pours a brownish murk with a small head. Aroma is boozy, sugary, malty, and cakish. Taste is slightly boozy. Rather sweet. Mouthfeel is much lighter than expected. This ain’t that good of a barley wine. The extra years didn’t seem to mellow out the booze taste, but whatever, it was actually pretty easy to drink and that ain’t ever a bad thing.

Pyrmir (3478) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle at ÖÖWF 2012, vintage 2011. Aroma cognac, sweet, malt, toffee and dates. Taste very sweet, boozy, dates. Not as good as I remember it.

olsvammel (3452) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 20, 2009
It poured a hazy dark golden liquid with a light brown foam that left some lacing. It had a strong smell with some warm alcohol. It felt round, thick and smooth in my mouth. Had a warm alcoholic finnish. Tasted of caramell, malt and fruity. Very nice.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2005
(sampled draught at Stockholm Beer Festival) Cloudy dark amber with a generous, creamy beige foam. Very fruity aroma of melon, pear, flowers and grapefruit. Full, fruity flavour of oranges, lemon, floral hops and grapefruit with distint undertone of licorice. Creamy mouthfeel, well hidden alcohol. Long orangey aftertaste. Nice!
