drpimento (2768) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 20, 2015
nice malty toffee, caramel fruit aroma. Flavor’s like nose. Alcohol shows up late in the finish. Plenty bittersweet. Monster beer that’s actually fairly easy to drink.

Odysseyalien (66) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 28, 2015
Bottle. Plums and dried fruit on the nose. Same for taste. Sweet...but not as cloyingly sweet as some English barley wines. Makes a head of about an inch and a half poured into my snifter. A beautiful sight! Reaction to my first sip was "sweet" and I wasn’t sure I was gonna like it. However the second sip started to pull me in. After it had warmed just a bit, there was no turning back. Really delicious effort from Mikkeller. I would love to find this on tap sometime. Hope I can get another bottle or two. I had Firestone Walker Helldorado for the first time yesterday and thought it would be a while before I tasted anything that good again. I was wrong. This beer from Mikkeller is a hair’s breath from being as good as Helldorado. A damn yummy barley wine!

reebtogi (5185) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 14, 2015
375ml bottle pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a finger of off-white head that leaves some spotted lacing behind. Aroma is light citrus and caramel with some big alcohol notes. I would welcome this brew as a very big brew (less than 10% acceptance.

bhensonb (13206) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 1, 2015
Capped 375 from Healthy Spirits. Pours hazy caramel color with a slight whitish head. Aroma is brown sugar, wood and somewhat fruity hop. Seems a bit oxidized, but maybe that’s part of it’s charm. Full bodied. Flavor is sweet. Brown sugar, treacle ... There is significant heat. Seems to be some fruit. Really tasty stuff. I’m liking it a lot.
