Bouteille. 9/1/2014. Robe huileuse cuivrée aux reflets rubis, minuscule mousse blanche éparse. Nez acidulé de pruneau, de distillat de poire avec des petites touches caramélisées et vanillées. Bouche sucrée et sirupeuse très proche d'un chouchen par ses notes typées de miel et d'alcool. Petites notes de confiture de mirabelles. Absence de bulle. Entre le vin cuit et la bière, un joli apéritif malté et sucré. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cunningham (4426) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2014
Clear deep nutty brown color with a small white layer. Smells like an expensive red wine. Lovely full body with a balanced solid sweetness. Oily texture. God this was nice. Concentrated fruit like an eiswein. Also some rum and caramel. Smooth and nice. Soft carbonation. Absolutely NO alcohol coming up. Dangerous and a pure pleasure!
[Bottle from a trade with mmahut. Thanxxx a lot Marek!]

Corked and Waxed bottle 0,2l. Niesamowite wrazenie juz robi sama butelka, smukla mala waska i dlugasna z korkiem i woskiem na wierzchu. Po odkorkowaniu wydziela sie podczas nalewania aromat gruszek i moreli zmoczonych w kompocie z dolewka szlachetnego alkoholu. Slodkie, ale nie nurzace i choc nie przepadam za slodkimi piwami to bylo wspaniale, taka szlachetna slodycz, naturalna i do tego takze wspaniale alkoholowe cieplo i zapach intensywny. Nawet przy tej slodkosci byla spora piana i trzymala sie niezle, nawet troche saaz wyczuc mozna bylo. Jasny bursztyn z pianka wspaniale na deser po posilku. Przyjemna uczta godna polecena wszystkim milosnika dobrego piwa.

MichaelAwesome (3880) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 15, 2014
Syrup style piwo with loads ov overripe fruits and some liquor in the back. The high abv is very tasteable but not that bad how I expected it, A bit overaromatised but decent one.

McTapps (3879) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle from trade with mmahut - many thanks, Marek! The barley wine pours out in a deep dark brown-ruby colour with low head and smooth body. Aroma of dried grapes, rum and cake. Taste of ripe barley, cream cake, roisins, plums, prunes, dried fruits, rum and light chocolate. Wonderful and smooth to drink, enjoyed it very much.

Brandman (2062) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 1, 2014
Courtesy of mmahut. Offwhite head. Aroma is huge sugary maltiness with some nutty buttery and almondy malt. Flavour is really big with mouthfilling notes of nuts and sweetness. Alcohol is very present but just to bring complexicity to this one. Very slick and sweet, very balanced and fullfilling. This is just raelly well crafted beer.

CanCrusher (610) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle 0,20L. Almost 7 months after date expired, but this is strong barley wine, so no worries. Slightly hazy, dark copper colour with thin, light brown head that goes into the crown fast. Medium strong aroma of cognac, cask wood, caramel, alcohol and some fruit like pear and peach. Taste starts heavy sweet and syrupy with some fruity liquor note and finnish heavy sweet. Full body, syrupy texture and soft carbonation. It was the most expensive beer I bought on my beerhunt trip in Brno, but it’s worth every Kcz.

mmahut (934) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 13, 2014
Corked bottle, 3 years of age, thank you Anička. Dark amber body with low head. Aroma has a lot of dried fruits, plums, caramel, oak, woody, toffee, light floral notes too. Alcohol is pretty hidden. Taste has intensive burned caramel sweetness with low earthy bitterness and complex fruity after taste. Body is full, high carbonation, oily texture. Excellent.

Bottle from Prvni Pivni Tramway, Prague. Pours unclear nutty amber with a small thin white head. Sweet malty aroma , plums ,honey and berries. Taste is moderate sweet, honey and alcohols, sticky mouthfeel. Lingering sweet caramel, a different but good barley wine.
