SanfordBrewer (1460) - Sanford, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Hazy golden orange with a thin but enduring beige head. Syrupy full body with high carbonation.

Aroma: a ton of pale malt, a touch of chocolate malt, german noble hops, hints of toffee and piney american hops.

Taste: lots of pale malt, aromatic malts, fruity ale esters, toffee, caramel, citrusy hops, butter, and alcohol.

Mad_Ferret (949) - SWEDEN - APR 24, 2016
Baronen 2014. Fl, hemma
App: rejält mörk rödaktig mahogny färg med ett svårbyggt gulnat skum.
Aroma: Oj vad mycket farin! Eller är det honung med soja? Soja, farin, karamel/sirap med djupa toner av plommon/sviskon och romdränkta russin plus klistrig alkohol. Udda men spännande.
Taste: Stor sötma av knäck och sirap som balanseras bra med lite lätt rostade av kaffe och sötsyrliga plommon och beska med pomerans och örter. Russin, lakrits och läder är med i mixen också.
Palate: Stor men ändå slimmad och följsam med mjuk kolsyra och viskös/klibbig textur.
Overall: Sveriges bästa brittiska barley wine? Tydlig men mjuk alkohol, hög sötma, bra maltkaraktär, inte för forcerad humlekaraktär. Känns som en superkandidat att slänga i källaren några år till. Men visst fan går det att dricka nu.

MaartenRF10 (1835) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 15, 2012
Dark copper colour, nice lasting beige head. Aroma is typically barley wine. Taste is dark fruit, some spices, wood notes, hint of vanilla, sweet with some bitterness, some alcohol. Good full body and relatively high carbonated for a barley wine, not too high though.

glennmastrange (2588) - 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.
