330ml bottle bought from Willems, Grobbendonk. No best before date apparent. Mid red/brown colour with some floaters. Rich caramel aroma with some volatile alcoholic notes. Fairly fruity flavour, some nutty elements, again with noticeable boozy character. More chewy caramel. There are not too many Barley Wines from Belgium so I was interested to try this one. However, I didn’t really discern much to distinguish it from a Belgian Strong Ale and I found the alcohol a touch hot and intrusive for my taste.

A Mes rate: Bottle at Chris O’s.
Dark amber brown with a reasonable off white head. Heavy alcohol and caramel aroma that Pat called ’quite brutal’ and he was right. Thick soy, liquorice and caramel flavour. Pretty rough and rugged if you ask me. I can’t see what the fuss is about.

caesar (5321) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2008
Bottled. Dark brown color. Aroma of dark fruit, malt, slight roasted. Slight bitter and roasted taste. Decent beer, but not a barley wine I would say.

bhensonb (11526) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Tap at Delirium Tap House. Dark brown with a beige/tan head. Light floral aroma over roasted malt. Dark roasted malt. A little floral hop. Just a tad sour. A little coffee and some heat develop with time. Its a very good beer, just not what I am looking for at the moment. Could pass for a stout I suppose.

Deze donkerbruine gerstewijn (?). D aanwezigheid van de e verbrande mout maakt de caramelachtige geur sterke. de smaak is zoetbitter met een lichte alcohol waarneming. Een lange uitgevloeide iets bitterige nasmaak

Jerre (2723) - Waregem, BELGIUM - APR 23, 2008
Bottle, 33 cl. (From Alvinne’s Beershop) Tasted yesterday @ home. Very darkbrown, almost black color, with a beige creamy head. Aroma malts, dark fruits. Medium to full body. Taste = complex well balanced: sweet, chocolate, strong roasted malts, caramel, bit coffee, sourness and hop bitter finish. Good beer, but let me say not my favourite.

Yves (2361) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - MAR 23, 2008
Dark brown beer with small off white head. Malty aroma, reminding me of scotch and grain. Full palate, rather long finish bitter (coffee beans) ending is also rather alcoholic, Amaretto? I like this one.
