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?

Swaroga (2111) - Gdańsk, POLAND - 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. Iím surprised how the barrels go through this brew. They match well. Itís still easy to drink for a barley wine. It does look more like a beer when we see the perfect head. I enjoy it.

Yorker (1934) - Herning, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2014
37.5 cl bottle @ home (2012 vintage). Pours hazy reddish brown with quite a bit of sediment and a white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are caramel, dried fruit, minerals, and red wine - with a slightly alcoholic finish.

This gets points for uniqueness. Aroma and flavor of bready malt, caramelized sugar, hops, oak and red wine tartness. Color was deep brown with a red tint. Full palate and a slightly dry finish.

zebra (1801) - Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2011
not as amazing as the bourbon edition, which i had first. i wonder which red wine it was. what grape goes well with barley? i guess i could try it at home, various beer + wine combos.

worldbeertaste (1796) - 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.

tmrmwel (1790) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 22, 2013
On tap @ Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours a dark brown, almost amber, with a thick creamy head. Aroma Is roasted malts, with oak and earthy notes, as well as fruity port winey whiffs and quite a lot of bittering lemon peel hops. Full, creamy body with medium carbonation. Flavour is quite bitter with citrusy hops and pine, as well as sweet roasted malts with succade and molasses giving it an oaky finish with lots of earthy notes.

Vestergaard (1761) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2012
Pours rustic, filthy, cloudy brown with a thick light brown head. Smells surprisingly fresh. The red wine is present already, and combined with the sweetness itís almost smells like apple pie. The taste is sweet, but works very well with the wine. Toffee and malty. Very nicely executed!

Foffern (1693) - BodÝ, NORWAY - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours a pretty clear brown amber colour with a big frothy beige head. Incredibly rich and malty aroma with lots of oak, sweet malt, marzipan, fudge, syrup, caramel and some alcohol. Not far from a cognac. The flavour follows up with a complex mixture of the aroma with licorice, spices and a touch of roast in the end. Very rich and sticky mouthfeel, and a light to medium bitterness. A rich barley wine with a complex aroma and flavour. Almost like a journay.
