panacea (94) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2014
2012 vintage. Nose is almost nothing. Maybe some dried fruit sweetness but very subtle. Taste is lots of dried fruit, sweetness and some booze. Body is perfect for the style. Some nose and this beer would be perect.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2014 (Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival, 19 Sep 2008) Reddish amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty nose with notes of dried fruit (apricots, raisins) and rubbery hops. Rather vinous. Malty taste with dried fruit (apricots) and lots of spicy, earthy hops in the finish. Rather sweet and vinous. More than medium body. Powerful, but with a good balance and a nice hop character. (7/4/7/4/15=3.7) Rerate 6 July 2014: (Bottle, vintage 2010, 10.0%) Brownish amber colour, slightly hazy, with dense beige head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of caramel, crisp-bread, prunes, raisins, dried apricots, earthy hops, hints of burnt rubber and a slight cellar aroma. Malty, fruit taste with caramel, raisins, prunes, dried apricots, dark bread, a touch of Madeira wine and a balanced bitterness with slightly earthy hops. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Well made and well balanced barley wine with a slight old ale character. Very nice.

gyllenbock (6203) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 20, 2010
Bottle. Hazy brownish with a small slightly tan head. Malt, malt, malt! Yes it was very malty both in the aroma and taste. The aroma also contained syrup, dried dark berries, raisins and caramel. The taste was sweet but not sugary, sticky, thick mouth feel. Aftertaste was long and contained some alcohol. A good Swedish Barley Wine

JorisPPattyn (8659) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 27, 2010
Light gushing to medium, dense yellow-cream head, not very stable over ruby-brown beer; clear burt for the very last of the bottle. Rich malty nose, with alcohol and something lactic, sweet spices and mild hops. Rich taste, alcoholic and cakey, with hops blending seamlessly in. If anything, more meaty than lactic in the mouth. Very good balance. Quite rich velvety MF, and feels more carbonated than it looks. Long warming aftertaste with alcohol-preserved orangequarts. Dangerously drinkable little bottle, dangerously likeable little nobleman, both very expensive...
