deanso (5461) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2011
33cl from the brewery. Too much head, almost a gusher. Clear amber pour. Too weak for a barley wine. Coriander in the aftertaste

Benzai (8532) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2011
Draught at Pint Winterbierfestival Gouda 2011. Actually one of the few Kasparus beers that are decent. Dark brown color with some red in it, light brown head. Smell fruit, spices and some sour hints. Taste malts, fruits, sweet. Nice carbo, medium body.

bierkoning (10381) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2011
Bottle. Brown color. Firewod, juniper and various spices in the intense aroma and flavor. An abundance of spices makes the beer totally out of balance and undrinkable. Drain pour!

Countbeer (4539) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2011
Draft @ PWBF11: Off white to light brown foamy head on top of a deep dark brown colored beer. Smell mostly cherry with a hint of some other red fruit (strawberry) and cream, like cream cherry ice-cream. Taste is a mix of cherries, malts, light sweet and a hint of meat. Low carbo, mid body and soft mouthfeel.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JAN 28, 2010
@ Winterbierfestival PRZH 2010, Gouda. Black colored brew. The aroma is something different, very strong juniper, medicinal. Flavor has got a strong juniper taste, iodine. At first its flavor is too strong, but it gets better after a while. Very unbalanced.

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2002
Dark amber/brown color; the head disappears quickly. Deep malt aroma, spreading in the whole room, typical of barley wines; fruity.
Less sweet than other barley wines of the same strength (actually, its almost unique its balance of swetness and dryness), not the perfect score just because too much mono-dimensional: soft caramel.
The hop used is the minimum necessary for such beer; some more would be an improvement.
Easier to drink than other similar ones, but not persistent flavors.
