Melker (252) - Göteborg, - NOV 16, 2013
Hazy amber, big white fluffy head. Aroma of orange zest, other tropical fruit like grapefruit, grass, caramel. Very sweet taste of orange, bread and caramel. Ends slightly bitter with a long aftertaste with some toffee. Creamy texture, low carbonation, really smooth!!

Vestergaard (1537) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2016
On tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours a rather dark, reddish, clear amber with a small, off white head. Aroma has toasted malts, caramel, lots of hops, berry-like fruityness, some overripe plums. Taste is sweet.. Very sweet actually. Towards the far end a bitterness takes over and balances it somewhat. Average to low carbonation and a sticky body.

Taste is medium to very sweet malt, some caramel, candy fruity, some buckwheat, light toast, medium herbal-floral bitterness, some alcohol. Full bodied, sticky, bit creamy, soft carbonation. (on tap, Craft Room, Zagreb)

ClubGonzo (5300) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2016
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a deep copper-hued clear amber body with a large creamy off-white head. Graceful. 5 Nose is red fruits, caramel, vanilla, grains, toffee and hints of wet grass, white sugar and minerals. Taste is caramel, burnt sugar, alcohol, grassy herbs and hints of grains, white sugar and toffee. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Way too bitter for me, I like my barley wines sweeter and fuller, with more complexity. Decent, but no winner.

Torrefacto (1357) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 4, 2016
Caoba limpio y espuma beis. Aromas dulces de mermelada, caramelo, toque cítrico. Cuerpo sedoso y denso, con sabor de peladilla, caramelo, y final seco de amargor resinoso y vivo.

Inbreak (4207) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2016
30.05.2016, 0,75l bottle (bbd. 1/11-2015) shared @ BBGTC tasting:
Big fizzy-creamy longlasting head. Aroma is very mild, leafs, caramel malts, grass, candied sugar, minerals, weeds, bark, hops, alcohol, old citrus peel. Taste is slightly sweet grassy, leafs, old citrus peel, minerals, bark, hops, grass, cardboard, burnt caramel, alcohol. Medium to longlasting bitterness, slightly dry and harsh watery mouthfeel. Fair enough.

Marko (4759) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 27, 2016
On tap at Craft Room. Lovely crystal clear ruby red body with an off white, medium sized head that went down fast. Full, slightly stale, slightly grainy heavy barleywine maltiness with a light touch of something resembling buckwheat I guess, not what I think of it, but close, ending dry with vague vinegar (without the sourness, if you can imagine that). This is just way too sweet in my book, Heavy caramel and candy-like maltiness, not even with that much complexity other than that. It’s tasty, yeah, but falls into the "typical sticky BW" trap too soon. If you like them like that, you’ll love this. It’s a good beer, but I don’t think I would go for it again.

JohhnyB (136) - CROATIA - MAY 26, 2016
Amber color with medium off white head. Aromas of caramel flower, sugar and toffee. Sweety taste, some bitterness, medium body. Not really a fan of it.

MartyW (101) - DENMARK - MAY 9, 2016
Draft. Dark orange colour with a medium off-white head. Smell leads me to an IPA, taste more of a stout. Aroma has cherry blossom, roasted buckwheat, more floral notes. Flavour is a bit hoppy, roasted chocolate with a well balanced finish of bitter and sweet roasted, toasty malt.
