andrewturba (1077) - Alberta, - FEB 1, 2013
Pours a hazy copper colour with not head after a minute or so. Aroma is majorly bourbon, some sweet toffee, and some fruity notes on the end. Flavours are bourbon up front and on the finish, in the middle is a sweet toffee followed by a warming alcohol. Pretty smooth for 19.1 abv!

caesar (5321) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle @ ZZT X, small sample, thanks all for sharing! Slight hazy orange color, short head. Aroma of cookie, biscuit, slight raisin, but mostly alcohol. Not much vanilla. Sweet in taste, alcoholic. Hoped it would have been improved after a couple of years in my cellar, but it hardly improved.

MrHangover (2763) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle @ ZZT X, courtesy of caesar. Pours a hazy light brown beer with a very small white head on top. Aroma is very alcoholic, very strong and some Madeira notes. Age is noticeable. Flavor has a big sweet alcholic base, loads of vanilla touches and barrel touches. Very strong and a bit unbalanced, but still very nice imho.

angel77 (1092) - oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 28, 2014
Botella de 37.5 cl en casa ....-2013. Alucinante, alucinante Barley wine, y encima con 4 meses de barril de Bourbon. Una cerveza imprescindible para repetir lo antes posible. Color marrón muy oscuro, casi negro con espuma oscura no muy persistente. Cuerpo fuerte con un volumen de alcohol de 19.1 vol totalmente alucinante que da a todo el conjunto una gran sensación de licor, aumentando cada vez más a medida que va calentando. -- Aromas iniciales dulces a ligero caramelo y uvas pasas acabando con importante aroma a madera empapada en Bourbon. -- Sabores también dulces a pasas añejas acabando con toques finales de madera quemada y licor de Bourbon. -- Final muy alcohólico, seco y amargo, bastante equilibrado con el dulzor inicial y el toque de madera quemada del medio. Al final se convierte en un gran licor en el que domina el sabor dulce y de madera de Bourbon... Muy buena, muy buena. Alucinante cerveza.

Leighton (11863) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2013
Bottle at THE Barley Wine Tasting - East Croydon. This one I brought along. Pours hazy gold with a creamy foam head. Boozy aroma, some alcohol-soaked citrus fruits, notes of caramel. Heavy sweet flavor with loads of deep sugar, marmalade, melon, citrus, cantaloupe, caramel, hefty bread. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Fairly hot on the finish with more ripe citrus, big caramel, golden raisins, tangerines. It’s a massively sweet and heavy beer but I wouldn’t say especially cloying, which is great. Sure, boozy, but interesting and overall quite good.
