dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 28, 2012
375ml bottle. Pours a deep garnet color with a fluffy khaki head. Aroma is hops, caramel, alcohol, and wood. Taste is sweet with some vinous and light bandaid notes. For 12%, this drinks pretty well. It does have the hop/malt profile I’ve come to expect from Mikeller. Pretty good.

January 19, 2013 - bottle shared by BVery. Brown pour with some head and spotty lacing. Aroma was caramel, dark fruit and some spice. Taste was consistent with a red wine finish. Nice and smooth with a medium to full body.

Bottle. Pours red/amber with a big fluffy white head, a little sediment throughout. Nose is wood, cranberry and red whine. Light notes of caramel and vanilla. Taste is red wine barrel up front. Some boozy vanilla, almost bourbon like notes. Red wine in the finish. Palate is full and soft. Lots of booze and heat. Nice beer but not as good as the base beer. Also wish the red wine differentiated itself a bit more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PotjeBier (2095) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2012
On tap @ Beer Temple. Redbrown color, hazy. Dense, off white head. Aroma’s: wood, red wine, some sweetness, umami, some roast. Retronasal it’s mostly red wine & malty sweet. Flavor is dry (tannines), red wine, a bit sweet, a bit vinous sour. Alcohol is warming. Medium bodied. Long finish with red wine, dry, bit roasted, bitter. Barrel aging could have been a bit shorter...

Swaroga (1826) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 5, 2012
375cl bottle. Hazy dark red liquid with medium red tanned head. Nose : intensive deep notes of alcohol, red wine, chocolate, wood barrels, wedding cake. Sip : medium density body with thick oily texture. Almost no carbonation. Sweet and warming with alcohol. It develops dryness like a port wine does. I’m surprised how the barrels go through this brew. They match well. It’s still easy to drink for a barley wine. It does look more like a beer when we see the perfect head. I enjoy it.

DwarfeD (1797) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - APR 20, 2014
375ml bottle from BierNavigatie. Pale brown with flocks of sediment and a small creamy off-white head. Full body with light to moderate carbonation. Sweet with bitter tones and some slightly sourness. Herbs, brown sugar, wood, spices, caramel, citrus and dark fruits. A great complex full flavoured brew.

HonusWagner (1793) - Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2011 Thanks Jay for sharing this messy thing. Boozy, sweet, lots of sweet caramel. Cannot really tell that this is aged in a red wine barrel over any kind of virgin oak. Not bad, but why bother?

Yorker (1760) - Herning, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2014

worldbeertaste (1759) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2013
Deep dark red with a thin, frothy, lacy, lasting off-white head. Smells of heavy malt, wood, caramel, cherry, marzipan, caramel, banana and gingerbread. Medium to full oily body. Taste is smooth and malt. Sweet with wood, grape, caramel biscuit. Little hint of alcohol on he finish that is bound to decline with age. Beautiful barley wine.
