Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - MAR 12, 2010
Bottle. Pours hazy amber coloured with almost no head - small off white ring. Aroms of fruity hops, caramel, sweat, burned rubber and some alcohol. Flavours of sweet malt, syrup, caramel, resin, warming alcohol, orange fruit and a nice bitter kick at the end. Not as boozy as expected. Well done.

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - FEB 27, 2010
This was better than expected and perhaps the best Barley Wine i’ve tasted. The look is sleightly hazy amber with a medium tan bubbling head. The aroma strikes me hard with extremly powerfull citrus hop notes, blood orange and mandarine. The suprising thin about this beer is how smooth the flavor is, considering the abv. It is extremly sugery sweet bit when paired with the enormous bitterness, its quite allright. Really nice zipper!

Mallucci (32) - ITALY - FEB 23, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2010 Una birra ambrata sfumata con una testa color Panna arancione. L’aroma è molto luppolata - agrumata su un corpo leggermente maltato e caramellato. Il sapore è dolce con note forti di malto, alcol, e agrumate così come le note medio di zucchero e caramello, portando ad un finale secco, amaro, e zuccherino.

Mogwai (227) - Askeby, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2010
Bottle. Pours a golden, amber, colour with a very short lasting off-white head. Aroma is plenty of hops, caramel, malt. Taste is very good, medium sweetness, full body, thick feel, soft carbonation, long alcoholic finish.

Pinball (10766) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2010
50cl bottle dark amber, smooth offwhite yellowish thick head. aroma is prickly strong boozy, flowery hops, eggyolk, malts, quite strong aroma but not very flavorfull. lots of punch. flavor is sweet malty, faint hoppy, boozy, but less boozy than 17.6% for sure, faint citric note. orange. Need some time to adjust to such a high abv, but the beer itself is a good very sweet barley wine with some hops to balance.

Flavor is heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a long duration, very very sweet. Body is medium to full, texture is oily - syrupy and sticky, carbonation is soft. finish feel is alcohol warm.

sunevdj (3152) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2010
Bottle at release at Ølbutikken. Pours amber with an off-white head. Quite sweet with aromas of hops and abricots. Also some aromas of malts and caramel. Well balanced by the high hoppy bitterness. Hints of citric hops. Soft carbonation. Full bodied. Long dry finish. Would never have guessed on anywhere near 17.6 % alc. Wauw!
