adnielsen (9460) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 15, 2011
Bottle @ home. Burgundy, Dr. Pepper colored appearance with really no head. Strong, sweet, berry, vinous, boozy nose. Strong, boozy, sweet berry, incredibly malty flavor with a big warming finish. Not really my cup of tea.

fletchfighters (1133) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2013
17.6 version Foil and corked and caged Dark, clear, orange amber color. No head at all. Thick and syrupy looking. Big ABV legs. Nose is dark fruits, lots of brown sugar, some sherry or oxidation in the nose, or is it nail polish remover? Cardboard and dark fruit taste. Interesting mix. Bread, alcohol, and melted brown sugar. Slightly thin really. Lots of heat in the palate. Tongue is quite numb after a few sips. Sweet, slick and syrupy. No carbonation. Just really all over the board and not in a good way. Slow sipper and and not that great make for a bad experience.

KimJohansen (10350) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JAN 10, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2010 Clear amber with a medium white head. Hoppy and sweet aroma with malty and caramel notes. Powerful grapefruit flavour with pine, loads od hops and malty notes. Extremely sweet. It’s just to much.

omhper (19945) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2010
Draught at Copenhagen Beer Festival. Hazy amber, no head.Very sweet. Sugar and pineapple-like hops. Fruity and syrupy with massive alcohol burn and inky bitterness. Too sweet, too strong, too bitter. A good recipe that hasn’t survived the upramping to these extreme levels.

argo0 (11636) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 26, 2010
375ml bottle. Minimal off-white head atop murky amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, pine, grapefruit, caramel, alcohol. Taste is sweet, Brandy/booze, caramel, pine, alcohol burn. Sticky full body. I found this too far over the top.

AKSalmon (74) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2013
This one is cloudy orange with a little head the dissipates quickly. The aroma is honey. Taste very very honey sweet with an alcohol finish. It flows across the palate slightly sticky. Overall way way to sweet for my taste.

Peregrinari (148) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 26, 2010
too sweet with an unpleasant sour taste. Astringent in taste as well as aroma. Not really my thing.

seymour (1473) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Tasted 2010 Vintage Barleywine (17.6%) at Greg’s honey-themed beer gathering, thanks for sharing Vyvvy! It poured a copper colour, still, no foam nor lace. I really wanted to like this, but couldn’t. Cloying, sticky residual sweetness, some meaty biscuity malt underneath but masked by unpleasant oxidation, hot boozy aromas. Bummer, but glad for a chance to have tasted it at least.
