Draft at Blind Tiger brunch with Linh, Pat, Dallas, and Ann. Pours a deep, hazy mahogany with no head. Aroma is bitter pine hop. Mouthfeel is very dry and bitter with notes of pine, dry citrus, and an alcohol burn.

Draft at blind tiger. Pours a red color with some head. Holly nose. Flavor is very piney and dry. Not a big fan of holly barleywines though.

phredrik (1023) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - MAR 10, 2012
From tap @ John Bull, Aalborg. Pours dark amber with small beige head. Aroma is quite malty and sweet, caramel, a nice grain component like rye or the like, it's probably the buckwheat I guess. Also a good portion of hops with notes of citrus and grapefruit. Taste is rather thick and cummy, rather high sweetness and malt presence. Notes of caramel and raisins. Also some nice hoppy bitterness to balance out. Very nice, but I would prefer a bit more age on a beer like this.

BeerandBlues2 (10785) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Tap at Max’s. Pours hazy amber with a medium, frothy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is spicy alcohol, caramel and cookie malt, dates, berries, floral and fruity hops. Flavor is heavy alcohol, spicy, floral hops, fruity esters, caramel and cookie malt, sugary and a dry finish. Full body, high warmth, medium carbonation.

olio (7528) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2012
75 cl bottle. BBE 23.11.2015.
Pours clear copper color with a large head. Aroma of lots and lots of exotic fruits, probably citra and simcoe hops, grass and caramel. Flavor of fruits, caramel, grass, toffee notes, distant syrup and mild malts. Very nice and balanced hoppy brew. Excellent.

lusikka (7104) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2012
750 ml bottle. BBE 23.11.2015.
Pours an amber colour with a white frothy head. Strong aroma of floral citrusy hops (Cascade and Simcoe at least) and caramel. Strong flavour of strong floral citrusy hops, caramel malts, some sweet fruits and hay. Full bodied, smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation with a long, warming and strong bitter finish. Far from a barley wine, more of a Double IPA. Excellent.

Plovmand (6992) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2012
Botle at home. Pours bit hazy deep golden with a creamy off white head. The aroma is quite hoppy with notes of sweet caramel, sweet malt, grass and sweet fruit. Quite sweet flavour of malt, wheat and rye that could be buckwheat instead. Grassy and grape fruity notes with some sweet berries. Overall quite sweet but still loads of hops. Creamy texture.

laiti (7264) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2012
75 cl bottle @ home, BBE 23.11.2015
Aroma is brilliant with citra-like hops, exotic fruits and some vanilla. Flavour is rather hoppy with resin, some gooseberry bush and vanilla. Slightly sweet but still very good stuff. However, more DIPA than Barley Wine.

tiong (4736) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2012
750ml bottle

BBE 23/11/15 - Pours dark orange with a large foamy head. Strong aroma of citrus hops, fruits, caramel malts and toffee. Taste is quite hoppy with notes of citrus, sweet caramel malts and hints of toffee. Finish is sweet and dry with bitter, fruity and hoppy notes. Nice, well balanced IIPA. Not really a barley wine (yet), but still extremely tasty.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2012
