On tap @ Schouskjelleren 22 feb 12, together with Visionthing and Mr A. Rich amber colour with a small white head. Fruity and hoppy nose. Rich, fresh and well balanced flavour. Fine caramel background. Frutiy and hoppy. Some alcohol in the background, but not much. I do not know what happend the last week. Im usually not a Barley Wine fan. But within one week I have tasted two wonderful examples. Great beer!

PhillyCraft (3257) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2012
On tap, pours a cloudy reddish copper, head was on the bigger side. Aromas was very floral and filled with peach, orange, flowery hops, sweet malts. Taste was very fresh and had a nice malty character, there was also some nice fruit and resin hints from the hops. Maybe a little bitter. Very drinkable beer for the alc and not too sweet.

brokensail (11008) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 22, 2012
The pour is a murky, turbid orange color with a white head. Intense hop aroma of citrus (grapefruit peel) and pine. A decent breadiness and some toffee in there, too. Unfortunately, the nose is also overwhelmingly boozy and almost solvent-like. Like the aroma, heavy on the pine and citrus peel hop notes with a very pronounced bitterness. Notes of plastic with just as much booze as is present on the aroma.

Sigmund (5129) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2012
On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Amber colour, moderate head, slightly off-white. Lovely aroma of fruity and resinous American hops, malts in the background. Excellent and well balanced flavour, distinct American hops throughout, but not too extreme. There is a sufficient malty backbone to support the hops. Not too sweet. Jolly good!
