phaleslu (7224) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 13, 2015
375 ml bottle from The Wine and Cheese Place. Pours a hazed amber with a small, wispy off-white head. Has started to dull; 2011 vintage. The nose has held up, though. Notes of caramel, brown sugar, dry grains, toast, oak, cake, vanilla, and red wine - although the vinous character seems to have given way to the underlying barley wine malt sweetness. Light-medium bodied, with low carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Still pretty good.

sebletitje (7221) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 20, 2014
50cl bouteille @ RBBWG III, thanks Domiens. Cuivrée, col beige collant au verre. Arôme offre une belle palette houblonnée, rétro-nasal sucre brun avec un côté vin rouge peu présent. Bouquet qui semblait être plus agréable sans le mûrissage. Palais est malté, caramel, léger vin rouge très fine pointe d’épice et léger herbacé. Le vin rouge n’ajoute pas vraiment grand chose en terme de complexité si ce n’est un coup au portefeuille. Fini offre une petite palette houblonnée usant d’une fine amertume.

lusikka (6872) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 24, 2014
375 ml bottle. Pours a dark ruby colour with a small head. Aroma of sweet caramel, red berries, grass and lingonberries. Flavour of caramel, red berries, herbs, grassy bitterness and wood. Red wine is rather well hidden. Medium bodied and a dry, malty, grassy finish. Alcohol warms. Good balance.

Svesse (6757) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2015
(Bottle) Reddish amber colour with frothy, beige head. Fruity, malty vinous nose with dried fruit, oak wood, caramel, red wine, rum raisins and a touch of alcohol. Fruity, malty, vinous taste with notes of caramel, red wine, oak wood, tannins, burnt sugar, raisins and a vinous, warming finish with a slightly bitter-sweet finish. A slight red wine tartness comes through after a while. Full body, with a touch of sweetness. A bit boozy, but really tasty with a good wood character. Very nice.

laiti (6725) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 27, 2014
sample @ home, thanks veliempojot!
Aroma is rather oaky with some red wine tones and hints of alcohol. Flavour has red wine, oak, some caramel and toffee-like ’Mikkeller house aroma’. Hides the alcohol relatively well. Not much of the original beer left. Better than I expected still.

drowland (6629) - Georgia, USA - MAY 1, 2011
4/30/11. 375mL bottle courtesy mlunger12. Cloudy reddish pour with a small tan head that forms a ring and sticks. Huge aroma of alcohol, oak, vanilla, butter, and a hint of dark tannins. Sweet flavor upfront with awesome oak character - oak, vanilla, butter, coconut, and more. Way better flavor than aroma. Nice!

slowrunner77 (6600) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 1, 2014
easily my favorite in the Big Worse line. while the bourbon version smooths things out, it was simplistic. this one is dangerously smooth and complex with sweetness from the bw still coming through, alcohol apparent only in the back end of the aroma, a slightly sour tobacco sweetness added to (not instead of) the flavor of the original beer. great stuff, wish i didn’t have to get it on-line."

Draft at Beer Temple. Pours amber brown with a beige head. Aroma of caramel, malts, vinous, dark fruits, a little wood and booze. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter. Full bodied with soft carbonation.

Geokkjer (6298) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours brown with creamy off-white head. Aroma of malt, fruitiness, grains, caramel, some mint and yeast. Flavor is sweet and malty with some sweet red berries, wood, grapes and caramel. Full body, soft carbonation.Nice barley wine.

gunnar (6128) - Sandnes, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2013
On tap at Cardinal. Pours deep red/amber with a tiny white head. Aroma of wood, oak, sweet juicy red berries. Taste is vinous, oaky , lots of barrel here. Resinous end, some stinging nice mint at the final, which is lingering, bringing the mouthfeel dry and clean at the end, good one.
