ShivanDragon (3240) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2016
75 cl, stond al 2 jaar achterin de kast, schenkt wazig amber met witte kraag. aroma van graan, alcohol, zoet, sinaasappel, fruit en hop. smaken zijn wat zepig qua mondgevoel, typische usa barley wine, veel graam zoetig, siroop, sinaasappel, wat zachter dan de Bogoop en de andere Barley Wines in de 75 cl flessen.

hrabren (856) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 24, 2016
Bottle from Svijet piva (World of Beer), shared with Marko and Ogi. Murky ocher, frothy white head, lasting quite long. Aroma is alcohol and tropical fruits. Strong licorice flavor after a sip, sweet and alcoholic. Full body, strong, you can feel the alcohol. Lacks a distinct finish.

Panzerfaust (785) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAR 25, 2016
750ml bottle from Gallagher’s Beer World/El Irlandés. Pours a cloudy orange-amber color with a small white frothy head that lasts for long. Aroma is very fruity with a fair amount of resinous hops. Notes are mainly of berries, cherries, tropical fruits and a bit of sweet citrus with en resin and spruce encompassing around. No rice notes at all despite its use as an ingredient. Nice. Taste is very sweet, intense and fruity. Some bitter hints can be felt for balance but it shows mostly flavors of red berries, peach, mango and other overripe fruits. Marmalade, sugars and esters. Some alcoholic kick gives it a true Barley Wine effect. Almost full bodied, carbonation is soft. Prolonged aftertaste. Another nice fruity Barley Wine that doesn’t push too far away from it’s similar sisters Bogoop and Majsgoop.

Tap at Mikkeller bar. Delicious barley wine with quite a bit of sweetness, but also lovely flavours of peach, apple and mango. Pretty bitter, but not the most bitter of all. Powerful stuff, very nice

ABT_S54 (352) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2016
750ml bottle shared in a snifter. Pours deep orange with a foamy white head. Aroma is grassy and citrusy hops with a slight malty presence. Taste is malty and hoppy with the hops being the slightly more powerful taste profile. A lingering bitterness.

GuideDogSaint (1181) - Xiamen, CHINA - FEB 23, 2016
On tap at Mikkeller Bangkok. Pours hazy amber with a thin white head. Aroma of orange, pine, malt and mint. Sweet finish with underlying bitterness. More of a DIPA for me.

I drank this after a few, so I can’t say I have very good notes on this. Either way, I remember a nice balance between sweetness and hop bitterness. Great fruity aroma, lots of tropical fruits and yeasty esters. Like a really good imperial IPA, but with a controlled bitterness. The alcohol was well hidden too. Delicious.
