Davros (1859) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2013
Pours amber with a small head. Nose shows heavy malt with a fair bit of piny, resinous hops too. Very syrupy-smelling. Also some booze. Pretty similar flavours. Some sake notes amidst rich sweet malt and piny hops. A little harsh. Could use more carbonation.

Torontoblue (85) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 28, 2013
750ml bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with large off white head settling down to a good blanket. Aroma is tropical fruit, rich sweet bready malt, floral, citrus, hops, hint of licorice & alcohol. Flavour is highly bitter, citric hop, moderately high malt sweetness almost balancing out. Full bodied, oily, sticky mouthfeel. Lively carbonation leading to a slightly alcoholic, bitter drying finish.

reebtogi (4050) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 19, 2013
750ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is fruity and grainy. Taste is a bold fruity and grainy malt sweetness with a citrusy hop bitterness. Flavors are very well balanced. Medium to heavy body with nice carbonation leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate. The only barley wine attribute is the graininess, still this is a truly outstanding brew and highly recommended.

fiulijn (14298) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 10, 2013
Bottle at Pibar, Lausanne
Hazy light amber color with medium sized creamy head. The aroma is initially hop forward, fruity; later there is smell of feet and manure. Strong bodied, round mouthfeel, thick, with malt and wheat flavor, very sweet, with powerful hopping, first resiny, then fruity too. It has a strong earthy character, manure. Warming alcohol.
Extreme, very good, well brewed.
