jbeatty (1228) - New York, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Bottle, 06/11/2014. Ruby amber pour, frothy white head with great retention, soapy lacing. Aroma is caramel, red fruit, tropical hard candy, sticky resinous hop notes, mild pine and moderately grassy. Taste is sweet syrupy malts, sticky fruitiness, resinous hops, dark bitter caramel finish. Thick body. Really a bit messy, overly sweet and while very hoppy, doesn’t seem to really provide enough kick to offset. Ok, but just.

probstblueribbon (3400) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2015
750 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. Cloudy copper with a full light tan head. Quite hoppy, peppery and resinous, brown and burnt sugar, grapefruit peel, sort of floral, very sweet and big. Medium-full body with moderate carbonation. Very peppery with a cruciferous character...sulphur, radishes, sweet brown sugar malt, a bit odd; sweet with fairly good bitterness, a spicy alcohol now and a long, peppery, sweet finish. Radishes...honestly. What’s yeast about??

Tranquillity (1581) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2015
Red and slightly hazy, tiny white head. The aroma is sweet, with flowers, honey, nuts. The taste is nutty, extremely sweet, the finish is crazy sweet.

jamaty (1544) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 9, 2015
Anaranjada oscura casi sin espuma. Aroma licórico, algo herbal y frutal. En boca buen cuerpo y final bastante amargo. Sabrosa realmente con un tono licórico, base acaramelada y toques verbales. Predominio dulce. Se disfruta cada trago.

Karol (729) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 7, 2015
750 ml bottle from LCBO in Toronto/Canada. Overall a mind-blowing barley wine for me. Pours a light brown, copper, honey yellow hazy/cloudy color. Stable off white head. Aroma of malt, a bit white wine, but especially sorb tree unripe fruit, bitter hops, dark bitter fruits, light caramel sweetness, sauerkraut. Taste mirrors the aroma. Extra dry bitter hops sour finish. Mind-blowing!

sudomorph (966) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2015
750ml bottle. 10/2014. Pours a clear orange/caramel with a one finger, off whore head that thins to a thick film. Aroma has big, sweet notes of citrus, pine, resin, caramel, and bread. Taste is sweet but balanced. Caramel, bread, resin, pine, citrus, and a sugary, bitter ending. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Syrupy in the mouth with a dry finish. Overall a big, sweet, bitter, hoppy barley wine.

The beer pours a rusty copper colour, hazy, with a long lasting rocky lighjt tan coloured cap. The aroma is dark fruit, caramel, and citrus. The mouthfeel is medium-full bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is caramel and citrus, and not very well balanced

HippyHop (529) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 3, 2015
750ml bottle, gift from friend. Thanks friend. This beer is good, but not good as I thought would be. Smell is caramel and exotic fruits like Hawaii, but also soap, like Mom when I used to curse, or shitty Chiclets gum. Taste less soap, lots of sweet and bitter end, maybe too much bitter end. Overall good but weird barley wine, would like to try more fresh. Sweet Christ I’m tired.

Lilja (2274) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2015
Ölföreningen 2015. Smak och doft av tallbarr, honung, blommor, viol, mandelmassa, nektar. Oljig, rund och len, stor sötma, fin beska. Gott!

Spab (2939) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2015
750 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a murky copper/orange with large, lasting cream-coloured head. Aroma is piney hops, sweet caramel, brown sugar and both light and dark fruit. Flavour is rich and moderately sweet with solid piney hoppiness, lots of caramel, some brown sugar, a little cherry and pear. Boozy, but without a lot of alcohol heat. Big body. Impressive.

Pale amber pour with a thin white head. The nose is softly sweet and a little bit hoppy. A little bit herbal and slightly honeyish as well. Has a little bit of nice fruit and a touch of soft hoppiness. Has a little bit of honey and toffee notes. Nice brew.
