maxwelldeux (4310) - Snohomish, 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.

Courtesy of Dunbar72. Pours deep mahogany with small tanned head. Aroma is sweet, fidgy, raisins, madeira, malty and some hoppyness. and, tart hoppy, excellent. Fullbodied tart sweet palate. Finishes sweet tart, well balanced.

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.

20-JAN-2012, bottle @Bishops Arms CPH, with Ulkløbben. Clear red/brown with lasting beige head. Nose is alcohol, hops, but mostly sweet dark fruits and bready malts. Taste is sweet, bready, fruity and hoppy. Fine, bitter and sweet barley wine. I like this.

Habanero (3857) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2015
Bottled. Pours hazy deep brown with a small beige head. Aroma of dark dried fruit, caramel and spicy notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and slightly bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice Barley. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

VsXsV (3853) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 30, 2013
Bottle. 2009 vintage. Clear amber liquid with small off-white head. Aroma of dried fruit, toffee marmalade, caramel, port wine and sweet alcohol. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of dried fruit, toffee and caramel. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. A bit over carbonated. Nice stuff.

rickgordon (3851) - 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.

Ktwse (3742) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Pours clear dark brown with a finger of light tan head. Aroma of toffee, vanilla, caramel, light bread, light banana, some basement aromas. Taste is big, bold butterscotch burnt butter sweet, long sweet finish. Body is rich and creamy although with very rich carbonation, which kind of pulls the entire package apart.
