porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - MAR 18, 2012
(750 ml from Rising Tide) Cloudy amber with two and a half fingers of lightly amberish off-white head that are well-retained. Aroma of sugary grapefruit/citrus and pine over caramel. Mouthfeel is full and fairly smooth, but for some pebbliness. Lots of weepy light rings, broken sheets and dabs of lacing inside of snifter. Flavor reveals more of the aggressive hopping prevalent in the aroma - sweet citrus and pine over sort of dryish caramel and bready grain. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Sometimes seemed more like a big IPA than barleywine. Rating #1500!

maneliquor (3469) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 18, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2012 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a cloudy orange with a firm, sticky yellow head. Nose is very sticky, sweet and thick. Fantastic combo of spices, hops and sweet caramel malts. Very hoppy and resinous in the taste and is backed perfectly by the sticky, sweet toffee malts. Deceiving ABV. Amazing and my favourite of the series

McNeillR (1758) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 17, 2012
Nice to finally have this on tap (Brewdog, Edinburgh). Knarly, spicey nose thanks to the Buckwheat with a hoppy husk undercurrent. The name is in the body, a vibrant traffic cone orange under a thin lining of head. Silky mouthfeel with a decent amount of carbonation. Avalanche of zest doesnt rinse off the palate too easily. A bit much, but just the right side of it.

pilsnerrogge (2633) - Finspång, SWEDEN - MAR 17, 2012
Bottled:
Hazy amber colour. Large head. Pine and wood aroma. Very bitter. Flavour is pine, resin and a little bit of toffee. Alcohol is well hidden. Good, but not outstanding.

espenra (926) - Kurland, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2012
On tap at Håndverkerstuene. Bronze-like orange colour with no head to speak of. Aroma is sweet malts and hops. Lots of hops. Notes of syrup and light caramel as well. Based on the aroma I would call this a DIPA but the flavour clearly falls in the Barley Wine category. Lots of bitter hops, roasted malts and alcohol. Some sharp notes of pine.

TheGB (567) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Pours a dark amber/red with a big dense 1" head. Nice floral hops, yeast, light fruit. Medium bodied with a real smooth palate for how high the alcohol is. Very delicious.

b3shine (6596) - Indiana, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Bottle to oversized snifter. Looks good; a ltlle lighter than a barleywine. Smells good too. Hoppy and malty. Tastes very good. very hoppy, but nice balance. mouthfeel is good too. Overall, a very good brew that I’m glad to have gotten the opportunity to try.

kryon (1890) - SWEDEN - MAR 17, 2012
Pours amber reddish with high thick nice head Aromas a bit weak. Some brown sugar barley malts hints of peach Palate is beautiful and fine tuned in a smooth straight line. Ends in medium bitterness. Really good barley wine. Would be even better had the aromas been better

Smeade (80) - Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2012
S: slightly opaque, amber color, solid lacing, nice collar, big bubbles forming A: sticky sweet, caramel, a little sour, smells thick T: different, starts full-bodied, but ends lighter, nose is misleading, not as sweet/sticky as the smell, orange peel dreamsicle? O: an interesting brew, worth trying, not my favorite & not incredible, but unique & cool ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
