Cirrhosis (1203) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 30, 2011
Slightly red honey brown body with a tiny cap that reduce to the thinnest of bubble rings after a few seconds but at an insane 19.2% what else would you expect? There is not surprisingly alcohol in the nose but not even close to the amount that you think there should be. Oak, Jack Daniels, rye, some very interesting funk, butt loads of sour wood. Did I hear somebody say “YUM YUM”? Taste is warm and smooth. The Bourbon flavor is so very easy to pick out, and it mingles very well with the barleywine flavours. Some generic citrus, more wood, heavy oak, vanilla, slight astringent. Stomach on fire halfway through bottle, cat somehow seems funnier than normal, fighting urge to speaker dance while alone in basement. The flavor is bringing back memories of my Mother putting Grand Marnier liquor over top of vanilla ice cream. Flavour is amazingly strong but doesn’t get the crap out of your taste buds. This is probably the best or at least in my top three barrel aged beers of all time. Hitting some dry green grape flavours. There are so many flavours going on here but I’m having problems putting names to them, and walking is also getting difficult. Yummers…….

presario (4611) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 25, 2011
Bottle. Dark copper/amber. Light lasting head. Sugary cinamon and Bourbon scent with a pinch of sourness. Flavour is maple syrup, brown sugar, alcohol, warm spice and a hint of cough syrup. Hard to estimate all the way upt to 19% but there is a lot of booze in this one. A late night sipper.

zvikar (3372) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - MAY 25, 2011
At a tasting, thanks Lee, pours deep honey color with a small head, aroma of toffee, grapes, boozy, cherry liquor and nose burn, throat burning with flavors of light acidity, malt sweetness, wood and spices, medium bodied, a beer to fly with.

gyllenbock (4563) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2011
Bottle. Amber with a small white head. A lot of alcohol both in the aroma and taste, but still a very good Barley Wine. Sweet, dried fruit, wood, bourbon, reisin. Thick mouth feel. Would love to drink again.

Bottle from Bier Koning. Cloudy amber beer, small pale tan head, Softish smooth palate. Rich sweet malt with some Port wine things going on! A little vanilla oak, more soft malt and then some mellow creamy bourbon. Woody bitterness towards the smooth finish with a trace of hop. Effortlessly drinkable super big beer!

BeerCast_Rich (1863) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 12, 2011
[375ml bottle, courtesy of cgarvieuk] Deep burgundy colour on the pour, very little head at all. Boozy alcohol hit on the nose, plenty of bourbon. Sweet, deep bourbon flavours, along with a marzipan sweetness. Big punch on the finish, leading to a smooth, sweet aftertaste. 19.1%? Astonishingly strong stuff, alcohol really comes out on top in this one [08052011]

DSG (5750) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 5, 2011
Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks Lee. Hazy deep golden with a bit of off-white foam. Boozy aroma of malt and alcohol-soaked fruits. Sweet fruity flavor with honey and alcohol. Medium-full-bodied. OK but hard to drink.

jesperhammer (2865) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 22, 2011
22-APR-2011, bottle @home, from "Ølbutikken". Tasted side by side with the "regular" edition. Golden orange with nice beige head. Lovely nose. Bourbon on that perfect malty barley wine base. Sweet, fingers become sticky... ...bourbon is present, on top of fruity flavors. OK carbonation. So much better than the regular. Enjoyed with Christian in his Garden.:-)
