BoBoChamp (5755) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 15, 2012
38cl, new exclusive Danish brew Anno 2011, from De Hopduvel Gent, very complex brew, alcoholic/vinous and slightly woody/sweet, heavy, yet balanced, cloudy, good head, very good brew, yet very expensive!

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle, 375ml. A big, dense, off-white head leaves lacings as the hazy, dark amber beer leaves the glass. Wine, alcohol, wood, piney hops, some beef stock, caramel and dried fruits in the aroma. Lightly warming on the palate, full-bodied and softly carbonated, with some chocolate, as well as coffee, dried fruits and resiny, flour-ish hops. Alcohol too. Lasting finish with a nice bitterness. A pleasant one indeed, although a bit boozy in the flavor. 120905

kermis (10000) - Where the wild whales are, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2012
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.

hopscotch (10601) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 9, 2011
Bottle… Farewell to ibrew2or3… Hazy burnt-orange ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Excellent retention. The bouquet is a malty, vinous marriage of caramel, ethanol and toasted oak with a kiss of Cabernet. Full-bodied and velvety with soft carbonation. The flavor is a blend of sweet caramel and bitter, citric, tannic hops. Tilts way bitter. Tannic, raspy, bitter finish that dries out quite a bit. Bottle courtesy of ibrew2or3!

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.

harrisoni (17278) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2012
On tap at Craft Beer Co. Murky red brown. Thin beige head. Lots of red wine barrel. Lots of fruits lots of hops on finish. Doesnt drink its strength. Pretty good. I like the red wine and the hops. Fine

PotjeBier (2701) - 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...

flip_soeperman (880) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2012
Compared to the big worse this is less drinkable. Vey complex but a few to many tannins for me. Has characteristics of fruit but also of wrange wine. Quite alcoholic and slightly too dry for a barley wine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ClubGonzo (5416) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep, near-brown coppery amber body with a big creamy light beige head. Nose is oak tannins, caramel, alcohol, red wine and hints of brown sugar and burnt rubber. Taste is dry oak tones, red wine, caramel, burnt sugar, alcohol, bready grains and hints of bitter herbs in the finish. Full body, medium carbonation. Complex and nice, but perhaps a bit too high on bitter red wine/oak tannins; I generally prefer my barley wines a bit sweeter. Good stuff, though.
