Tap at the Bishops Arms (Savoy), Malmo. Poured a cloudy dark amber with a thin white head and lots of broken lace. The aroma is typical Barley Wine with boozy alcohol and rich fruit. The flavour is strong bitter with a big alcoholic resin bitter palate. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. A beast of a beer for sure, but needs a little more to make it truly stand out from the crowd.

Bottle, 40th Birthday gift from Nick - cheers mate! Amber pour with a bubbly white head. Juicy citrus and piney hop central snout wise, with notes of brown sugar and dark fruit. Promised good things. Flavour was sweet malts, fruits, buckwheat and tidy hoppage that delivered some pleasing bitterness. Dried out towards the finish. Right up my driveway this. Top notch collaboration.

Oj oj vilken fin öl. Fyllig fruktig doft med tyvär vinlika inslag. Men smaken krämig fyllig och torkade frukter. Perfekt lågt kolsyrad . Drack nyss en säkert i grunden fin Dipa som var sjukt övermatad med kolsyra (vilket händer med port brewing) som förstörde den ölen.

Pyobon (918) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 26, 2014
(Bootle) Cloudy amber copper with big creamy tan head. Pleasant aroma with toffee, apricots, bread, maybe a hint of malt. Full bodied, almost sticky, with nice fine prickly carbonation. Huge rich flavour, with sweet and dark toffee, some stone fruit, the dark toffee notes build to a burnt bitter finish, with a hint too of alcohol burn. An unusual, fairly intense beer, perhaps a little aggressive in the finish.

Bottle. Pours a clear brown, reddish beer with a big off white head. Aroma is fruity, malty, caramel. Some sugary notes and quite boozy. Flavor is quite sweet with touches of bittercookies and even some slight hops. It’s more bittering hoppyness than aromatic, but there is certainly some hops in the palate. Booze is noticeable, slight overwhelming which costs it a few points. Long, sweet finish. A nice barley wine.

RumRunner101 (770) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 7, 2014
Amber pour. Aroma is fruity with a bready malt base. Flavour has the same character, slightly grainy with tons of fruit, sweet malt. Alcohol well hidden. Nice.

Bière riche très bonne mais avec un prix trop fracassant ! Très amère en bouche elle explose quand elle prend de la chaleur.

Solid BW. Nice flavour and good palate. Not as exciting as i was hoping though.
