SirLimpsalot (2489) - 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

glennmastrange (2379) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Bottle. Moderate to heavy cookie, roasted and caramel, moderate cooked orange for the hops, moderate dough and leather for the yeast, with notes of date and toffee. Head is small, wispy, off-white with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is murky medium orange/tan. Flavor starts moderately to heavily sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes moderately sweet and lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is medium to full, oily with a almost flat carbonation and a lightly alcoholic and chewy finish. Big and bold aromas and flavors combined with a perfect feel make this a relatively easy drinking Barley Wine.

Vignale (2366) - 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.

Ktwse (2354) - SWEDEN - 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.

Bottle. Pours brown, solid looking with a tan head. Fruity taste of grapes and plums. Hint of licorice. Well balanced.

illidurit (2224) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 6, 2012

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - JUL 24, 2014
330 ml bottle courtesy of Alex. Thanks. Pours a dark brown color with a small off-white head that recedes to a fine film. The aroma is raisins, carrots and slightly sour toffee. The taste had ample raisins, brown sugar and some nuts, but not very much bitterness. The palate was full and a bit oily with soft carbonation. Finishes short and sweet. Overall: Interesting brew, a nice change of pace from the barley wines that I typically get.

330ml bottle, 2010 vintage. Pours a deep amber, beige head. Mature, malty aroma, caramel, walnuts, marzipan, toffee, fudge, dried fruits, sherry, madeira, earth, hops. Semi-sweet, full bodied, medium bitterness, creamy CO2. Malty, caramelly taste, the alcohol is quite evident but balanced, dried fruits, apricot, prunes, nuts, marzipan, madeira, earth. Long, sweetish aftertaste, dries out nicely. (2012-06-04)
