500ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Clear dark chestnut color. No head. Sweet, raisins, caramel, dark chocolate in aroma. Metallic, sweet, raisins, red and blackcurrant in taste. Raisins and bit metallic in aftertaste. Sweet and sticky. Blackcurrant is dominating. Not bad, but not really doing it for me.

500ml bottle (Beerfox, Riga)
Lovely sweet barley wine aroma, but with a slightly odd winey sharpness, I don’t like sharpness in my BWs. Dates later, much more to my taste, aromawise. Taste rises above the strangeness, goes straight to the raisins, just a touch of blackcurrant. Nice bitterness. Pretty solid barley wine, but I think the barrel has spoilt it. Do I get purple grapes, red wine, in the late finish? Was that the barrel? Interesting, but not romancing me.

martjoobolut (2921) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 11, 2015
Bottle (shared by fatphil, thanks). Aroma is full, sweet, caramel, wood, malt. Pours dark red-brownish without the head. Flavor is sweet and sour, caramel, oak, wood, malt, red wine. Finish is dry bitter, oak, more wine. Overall: good, but barrel runs over the beer.

suurjuust (2809) - ESTONIA - DEC 11, 2015
Ruby-tinged brown beer, almost no head. Nose is a caramel-boozy-oaky-vanilla kick in the nuts. Flavor is a bit thin because of the aging, but it’s fruity, woody, vanilla, caramel. Finishes with wood, vanilla, dried fruit, hints of booze. Lingering wood plus fruit. Nice.

Holmen1 (4748) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 29, 2015
Flaske, hjemme. Tror jeg kjøpte den på Barley Wine i København. Nesten helt svart med kort skum. Vinøs aroma med tørkede frukter og rosiner, fiken, lakris og mørke bær. Mørk karamell og dessertsjokolade kommer også inn i smaken, som er superfed og afrundet., De 11 Hz merkes først i magen. So smooth, en perfekt øl for første søndag i advendt, selv for en hedning som meg. HIL-Mjølner 1-0. Klar borteseier!

Sample @ home
Aroma is rather typical to an aged BW; woody tones, raisins and sweet malty notes. Flavour has alcohol, licorice, some woody dryness, minerals and sweet malty notes. Alcohol is a bit too sharp in this one. Enjoyable slow sipper anyway.

Jultsu (713) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2015
10% pullon kyljessä, lasiin pullon jämät. Vaahdoton, punertavan läpikuulainen. Tumman intensiivinen alkoholinen tuoksu, ehkä hivenen yksinuottinen mutta huumaava. Makeahko punaviinimäinen suutuntuma, jälkimaku ei juuri pienillä kulauksilla pääse esiin, makeaa marjaisuutta löytynee. Hyvää.

rosenbergh (10206) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2015
500 ml bottle. Thanks to Nikulainen! Dark reddish brown color with a tiny tan head. Berries, sweetness, sweet malt and vanilla in the aroma. The flavor is sweetness, more sweetness, malt, dried fruits, dessert wine and sugar. Super smooth! And super sweet! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

olio (9211) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2015
50 cl bottle @ ISKTR V. Brew No. #207.
Pours dark mahogany color with a small off-white head. Very sweet fruity and caramel-y aroma, faint resin, lots of sugar, some bourbon-y vanilla also. Dark malts, sweet sugary and caramel-y flavor, some red wine notes, toffee, syrup and wood. Still quite sweet, pleasant though, alcohol well hidden, vinous.

lusikka (7681) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2015
500 ml bottle @ ISKTR V. Pours a dark brown, almost black colour with a small head. Aroma of rich roastiness, saltiness, red wine and some vanilla. Flavour of strong rich roastiness, vanilla, white chocolate, prunes, a bit of herbal notes and red berries. A bit of syrupy sweetness. Full bodied. Beautiful balance and rather complex too. Still in a great shape.
