wlajwl (3804) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Aroma is malts, caramel, liquor and mild wine qualities. The flavor is caramel, big/sticky sweetness, fruit and a long and tart/sour/alcoholic finish.

JorisPPattyn (7879) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 10, 2014
Head reduced to white rim over deep-orange, hazy and finely carbonated beer. Tannines, organic acids (mainly lactic), fruity esters (citrus, banana, strawberry, but also wild fruit), and wood. Bitterish-wry flavour with a sweet-fruity background. Some meaty esters too, and the fruitiness gradually diminishes to a drier, woodier and certainly more alcoholic finish. Orangezeste and apricot brandy. There is caramel, but much less prominent than in the lightly toasted Limousin version. Retronasal one might even suspect some hops. Huge alcoholwarming, very viscously-slick, oily, to the point of sticky. More flavourful than the mentioned Limousin. Still, I don’t like my BW’s too sweet.

mcberko (6270) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 5, 2014
375mL bottle, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out more toasted oak than the light, with booze, caramel and fruitiness as before. Flavour is more cloyingly sweet than the light version, with loads of sugar, caramel and booze. Definitely sweeter than the light version, but also more flavourful. More like a liqueur than anything. Decent, but this really isn’t my thing.

GothGargoyle (1159) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 4, 2014
Darkish orange with a good pale head. Aroma is brown sugar, honey, raisins, apricot, hint of wood. Full bodied, slick mouthfeel, sweet on the palate, smooth finish. Flavours are apricot, brown sugar, caramel, honey.

deusax (442) - Grenoble, FRANCE - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle @JB club. Comparing to the other Medium Toasted of the serie. This one is sweet, ’lighter’ than the others, with woody notes.

Michal95 (38) - POLAND - MAY 18, 2014
Very strong Barley Wine but alcohol is pleasant. Aroma of wood, vanilla, oak dried fruids and licorice. There are nuts and raisins too. Taste is similar, very warming. Sweet with dry and bitter finish. Good Balance. I dont understand people who rate this below 3.5. Great BW, very rich.

Theydon_Bois (8102) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2014
Bottle, thanks to Ronny (rlgk), split at Colin and the Vikings tasting, Nol, Goteborg, Sweden 22/03/14. Lightly hazed golden orange with a moderate off white covering. Nose is figs, dates, dar fruit rind, spice, bitter orange, booze, fruit loaf. Taste comprises fruit cake, woody tones, figs, dates, prunes, candied fruit peel, orange peel, boozey undertones. Full bodied, fine carbonation, warming close. Ok barley wine, a little hot in places but very drinkable for the ABV.

jmgreenuk (4230) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle at the "Colin and the Vikings tasting, Goteborg". Poured a clear light straw with a thin round white head. The aroma is strong rich fruit and boozy alcohol. The flavour is medium to strong sweet light bitter with a smooth vinous alcoholic palate. Medium to full bodied with flat carbonation. Lots of alcohol, but less burn than I expected.

solros (88) - stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2014
Doft: laknafta kombinerat med sprit. Smak: Katrinplommon kombinerat med en massa sprit. Trevlig öl för den som gillar katrinplommon eller vill ha en öl till en mäktig kött rätt.
