oh6gdx (20253) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 19, 2007
Bottled. Deep ambery ruby colour with small beige head. Aroma is dark dry fruits, caramel and really much both fruity and flowery hops. Some mild alcohol is also showing, but not in a disturbing way. Flavour is spices, fruits and quite a lot of hops. Sticky palate. Still wellbalanced, and hides the alcohol really well.

Amber pour with a small off white head. Aromas of ripe fruits, caramel and citrus hops. Sweet to bitter with some hints of spices. Medium to light body. Nice Barley wine.

bottle. This is my favorite barley wine! small off-white fizzy head into lightly sparkling murky ruby red body. good lacing. aromas of candied sugar, ripe fruit, hops, molasses, some light spicyness. alcohol was present but not overwhelming. sticky thick mouthfeel. long lasting finish duration.

tjthresh (1865) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - DEC 17, 2007
12.7 corked and caged bottle form MrBendo.
Pours murky ruby red. Maybe cherry cough syrup. A bit of off white head.
The cherry nose along with alcohol make the nose kind of medicinal. I don’t think that’s a bad thing here. There’s also a bit of toffee, and some of citrus and pine. Some charred sugars as it warms.
The flavor starts sugary sweet, then transitions to some citrus and piney hops, and then breath taking alcoholic heat and driness.
Light body. Average carbonation. Dry alcoholic finish.
Not really as good as I was hoping. Very warm.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 15, 2007
Pours a clear copper orange with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of rich, sweet caramely malt with a touch of grapefruity hops. Body starts rich and caramely sweet with some piny hops and light fruity complexity toward a slightly warming finish. A little young right now, but should age well.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 15, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of barley and malt caramel and some citrus. Amber body with foamy beige head. Flavor is malted caramel but packs a citus bitter punch after each gulp. Alcohol content not a factor here on the palate and smmoth easy going session beer this is. Ahhh!!!
