Ktwse (4094) - 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.

VsXsV (3955) - 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 (3853) - 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.

SirLimpsalot (3815) - SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2012
Stor kanske aning spritig doft med tydlig inslag av kola och frukt. Smaken är stor och tjock med en härlig känsla av tjära, lakrits och kola. Något kort eftersmak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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!

Vignale (3366) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 3, 2013
Flaska från SB årgång 2010. Mörkt bärnstensfärgad, klar, inga jästrester, lågt skum som snart försvinner. Första doftintrycket är lagrad ost, sedan växer söta dofter av torkad frukt, sött vitt vin, sötlakrits och marsipan. Smaken har mycket sötlakrits, söta äpplen, dessertvin, marsipan och plommon. Lätt men markant beska och lite torrare avslutning. Ganska stiltypskt för en brittisk BW, fylligt med djup smakbild och riktigt gott.

Palidor19 (3165) - Brandon, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2011
Heavy syrup flavor with a strong hoppy that has a real bite. The mouth feel is full and doesn’t end throughout the beer. It has it’s flaws but it’s very drinkable
