Bottle, bought @Mikkeller webshop. Pours murky amber with lots of small floaties. No real head. Aroma is sweet, sherry, oak, vinious, caramel. Low carbonation, fine dry and quite oily mouthfeel. Flavour has sweet malts, vinious, caramel, oak, vanilla. Lingering warming finish. Good Barley Wine.

Bottle (from beergium.com). Pours amber with beige head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is, sweet, malt, caramel, alcohol, fruits. Flavor follows the nose. Finish is alochol. Overall: way too boozy, but otherwise ok.

Leighton (15306) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2015
Bottle shared at chriso’s Easter 2015 tasting - London. Cheers, Dr. Ken! Pours clear gold with a fluffy white head. The nose holds varnish, pale bread, lemon rind, peach. Big sweet flavor, heavily alcoholic, with some white bread crust, honey. Full bodied, oily, with fine carbonation. Hot finish, sharp and harsh, with straight alcohol, peach, ripe citrus. Hefty.

VDuquerroux (823) - Airvault, FRANCE - AUG 2, 2015
Bottle, 37,5cL. Home. An orange opaque beer with brown hues with a medium white head poorly persistent. Aroma of fruits (grape, fig), wood, alcohol. Medium to heavy sweet ; round with a nice warming touch in the background ; still some air ; appreciated :) Medium good body, medium oily texture, average carbonation, sweet woody finish. Overall, a really good round warming fruity beer. Drinkable despite of its 19.3% alcohol !!

375ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut
Carefully poured, even the third glass was cloudy. Messy alcoholic white grape must and doughy aroma, ugh. Fuck me, booze!!!! Tastes of alcohol burn. Some breadiness. Hard to believe that this isn’t just doped with vodka, it’s so boozy.
