Bottle shared among friends. Nose is typical barleywine notes- sweet, hops, alcohol. Nice surprise w/ the wheat flavors right upfront. Moves right into big flavors of more hops, sweet maltiness, some alcohol burn. Good!

King_Alex_II (920) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 6, 2016
Light cloudy orange color with a foam layer. Oily and light alcoholic nose with a surprising dominant amount of hoppy flavors. The taste is oily, creamy with a strong malty sweet character and a light alcoholic finish with a dry aftertaste.

SvanteL (120) - SWEDEN - JAN 27, 2016
Flaska inköpt 2012. Bärnstensfärgad med stort tät skum. Fruktig doft med citrusmarmelad, aprikoser och aningen tallbarr. Stor, fyllig, välbalanserad smak, på en botten av maltighet stiger en skön sötma av pomeransmarmelad och aprikoser vilket balanseras av en djup grapebeska. Mycket bra njutaröl; påminner en hel del om Hog Heaven från Great Divide.

Excellent. Very sweet, brown sugar. Alcohol warmness, malt, and generously hopped bit remains bslanced with the sweet malt.

Batavi (266) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2016
Fles 75 cl. gekocht bij firmabier.nl, uitgeschonken in een glas van Sint Crispijn. Troebel oranjekleurig bier met, zeker voor een Barley Wine, een hoge en luchtige, crèmekleurige schuimkraag. Aroma’s lijken erg op een Imperial IPA. Fruitige hoptonen van grapefruit, mango, ananas, gedroogde abrikozen, karamel en pijnboom. Smaakpallet is bitter en zoet, mooi in balans. Tonen van tropisch fruit en citrusfruit met name mango, ananas, perzik, mandarijn en limoen, aangevuld met zoete tonen van karamel, toffee, en gedroogde abrikozen. De afdronk is droog en hopbitter. Een erg smaakvolle Barley Wine, met veel kenmerken van een double IPA. 2e bier uit deze serie, die ik proef na de Majsgoop. Deze versie is zeker net zo goed, met slechts subtiele smaakverschillen, nu gebrouwen met boekweit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pushkinwow (2434) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2016
Bottle. Light golden with an off white head. Some fresher hops undertones on this one helped to balance out the sweet caramel malt, plums, prunes and hints of toffee. Mild carbonation and moderate body, smooth, booze is also well hidden on this one.

Nuffield (3940) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 22, 2015
Pours rich and hazy with a moderate, loose head. Big flavor, really well balanced. I aged this beer for a number of years, at which point it was mellow and rounded, with great hops and malts both working into a classic barleywine profile. Really attractive beer. Bottle.
