hohops (779) - Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2015
Bottle, BBE 17/06/19. Appearance- light orange, with a two-finger fluffy off-white head. Aroma- orange, tangerine, creamy malt, sugary fruit, marmalade, piney hops. Taste- orange peel, hint of fruitcake, sweet sultanas and raisin, a bit of booze towards the finish, glacé cherries, creamy malt undertones, oily and slightly sticky mouthfeel, orange sponge pudding with golden syrup. Very tasty stuff, almost imperial IPA-like.

procraste (472) - FRANCE - OCT 12, 2015
C’est un peu la fiesta du fruit exotique bien mûr cette bière ! On dirait plus une IPA bien chargée et démonstrative qu’un véritable barley wine traditionnel ... On se dit que ça devrait être trop mais finalement c’est d’une gourmandise séduisante ... Se boit particulièrement bien un peu trop fraîche et ainsi, c’est un plaisir de la découvrir tout du long de la dégustation, à mesure qu’elle se réchauffe.

allmyvinyl (9318) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 3, 2015
Bottle shared with jeevan. Pours clear amber red with a thick white head. Aromas of cooked orange, toffee. Taste is sweet, more orange. Oily, but surprisingly thin for a goop. Sweet warming finish.

Bottle bought from the Brewdog AGM 2015. Pours a bright rich looking amber with a slight head and nice lacing. Citrus hop and sweet syrup aroma. Rich sweet hoppy flavours. USA side Barley wine/double IPA character. Some sweet orange liqueur like elements.

Echon (344) - Århus, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2015
Tap at Fairbar. Light bronze body with an off-white head. Round, hoppy aroma with notes of citrus. Rich and well-rounded sweet taste with lots of hops and heavy bitterness. The alcohol is fully hidden. Medium body with average carbonation. Long and bitter finish. I have not had too many barley wines as they did not appeal to me initially, but this is delicious and very drinkable. Looks like I should explore this style further.

biirusaikou (2477) - - SEP 1, 2015
Draught at Mikkeller. Quite fruity, orange, grape, apple, honey, mildly boozy, long sweet finish. A bit of a disappointment as I love the style and expected much more wheat character, this one is quite syrupy and too sweet for me.
