BillKismet (3780) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Cloudy tanned-orange, super viscous. Near overpowering pear brandy nose, cleanses the brachioles. Exceptionally fruity, sharp esters and ethyls swirly tightly. Bready and fruity body, again with lots of esters and some alcohol heat. Aside from perhaps being excessively potent for my tastes, I can see this skull-splitter as just the tonic for for a cold, windy night, curled up by the firey hearth. Thanks for sharing, Scrizz!

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - APR 4, 2010
375ml bottle. Amber with a small white head. Big coriander spice in the aroma with a ton of hot and perfumey alcohol. Very sweet flavor with the same spice and hops struggling to stick out over the thick malt sweetness. Thick fruit and toffee, but mostly sweet and spicy. Big alcohol in the finish. Full and syrupy with low carbonation. Needs a lot of time and I dont think Ill bother waiting to find out if Im right.

Abio (1845) - Waasland, BELGIUM - APR 6, 2010
For me barley wine, dont seem to get in the category beer, second one I taste, and while the taste is not to bad, the lack of carbonation and foam is a big nono for me as a beer. Dark amber coloured, no head. Lots of sweetness and fruity.

Overpriced 375ml bottle shared by someone at a tasting. Glad I got to tick this beer without shelling out mucho dinero for it. Not worth the price at all. Hazy orangish-amber in color with a well-formed off-white/yellowish head. Leaves some lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet and boozy. Lots of caramel and some dried fruit notes, along with slightly faded citrusy hops. Sweet caramel malt is the dominant flavor note. There is also some toffee, citrus (orange/grapefruit/pineapple), brown sugar, and earth. A little unbalanced and boozy, but fairly tasty. Fairly full-bodied and syrupy with an appropriate carbonation level. A little boozy, as youd expect for a beer of this strength. A decent beer, but just not very good for the barleywine style at all. I looked up "hit-or-miss" in the thesaurus yesterday and it said "Mikkeller." These guys can be really great or really average, depending on the beer. This is a prime example of why bigger isnt always better.

Bottle, thanks to Cole for the share. Pours murky orange, thin off-white head, no head. Nose is citrus hops, orange, booze, marmalade, grapefruit rind, caramel. Flavours are quite straightforward, citrus, booze, caramel. Meh.
