lusikka (7700) - 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.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Bottled. Poured ruddy brown with a dense, creamy beige head and a decent amount of sediment floating around in there. The aroma picked up redder vinous notes over warm molasses, caramel, and spicy black pepper.. hits of leather and tobacco also came through.. a touch cloying at times, but otherwise very tasty and it held its alcohol in check. Heavy-bodied and syrupy on the palate.. a bit tart and harsh at times.. overall a tasty beer that smelled great and flowed OK.

Sigmund (6770) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2013
On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Hazy dark brown colour, moderate off-white head. Distinct aroma of oak / red wine barrel, a hint of fusel alcohols. Also notes of dark dried fruits. The flavour is very oaky, the red wine barrel does indeed dominate. Decent hops in the finish. Warming mouthfeel. Very tasty and interesting!

teorn88 (6742) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2012
On tap at CBC, London. It pours a mostly clear dark ruby/brown colour with a small beige head. Lasting foam. Aroma of sweet caramel, plums, figs, raisins and porto wine. Taste is similar: server with toffee, red fruits, bread and red wine. Body is medium with good carbonation. Overall, pretty outstanding barley wine.

Pours dark reddish brown with a smooth white head. Aroma of caramely malts, vinous notes, wood, oak and berries. Taste is sweet, malty and vinous with notes of berries, wood and oak. Finish is stingy, sweetish, vinous and woody with notes of tart berries, caramel and oak. A bit unbalanced and stingy.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a brown color with a tan head. The aroma is full of red wine and oak notes, as well as some toffee and brown sugar. The flavor is very similar. I get a lot of molasses and fruity red wine notes, as well as some oak, maple, vanilla and the alcohol you would expect in a beer that clocks in at 12 percent. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A nice barleywine.
