Odysseyalien (71) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Bottle. Age unknown but it looks like the one in the picture at this site. No head when poured. Thin lacing...almost cirrus cloud-like formations as it’s sipped away. Golden in color in my snifter...a few bits of light sediment accumulating at the bottom of the glass. The taste comes on in fine British barley wine style -- malts up front...raisins...pepper...light hops...yum. Unfortunately, it’s a bit too thin on the palate for my taste. Almost like sipping water on the backend. Too bad cause this might otherwise have been one of the best British barley wines out there for the price. The "thiness" of the backend killed it for me. Not sure if I’ll buy this one again.

Leini (1738) - SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2016
330ml bottle. Clear amber body with a minimal white head. Caramel, honey, figs, grass and dark sugars. Finishes a bit dry.

Vignale (3147) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 28, 2016
Flaska från SB. Ca tre år gammal flaska, klar mahognyfärgad, nästan utan skum. Lätt men utvecklad doft, lätt madeiraiserad doft som liknar fattoner. Läder, torkad frukt, honung, kolaremmar, vanilj. Smaken som doften men aning fadd, särskilt eftersmaken, relativt tydlig beska och torr lite pepprig avslutning för en annars stiltypisk brittisk BW. Trevlig men saknar det där lilla extra.

UbbeK (3) - SWEDEN - APR 22, 2016 does not count
U: mörk bärsstens röd. Lågt Offwhite färgat skum. Klar. Litet Kolsyrepus. A: Bob's blandsaft. Söt karamellig malt. Körsbärssylt. Något dammig. S/M: Fikon. Daddlar. Något söt. Saftig. Lätt alkoholvarmande känsla. Väldigt lugn i smaken. Homogen. Har utvecklats sig bra. Men något smaklöst är den. Full kropp. Lite kolsyra. Mjuka bubblor. Len vätska. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nybol (1291) - DENMARK - MAR 12, 2016
En meget vinøs øl. Selvom den ligger lige under 10% er den ikke stærk sprittet. Den har en velafbalanceret humle eftersmag.

Samuel214 (401) - SWEDEN - NOV 20, 2015
Flaska från SB, ölprovning Nils Oscar vs. Eskilstuna, Nerikes Ölsällskap. Rätt vinösa toner, hjortron, glöggkrydda, sötma från torkad frukt; russin, aprikos. Kola och torkad frukt i smaken, en aning efterbeska. Mycket bra!

VsXsV (3855) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2015
Bottle. 2011 vintage. Clear deep ruby liquid with small off-white head. Aroma of raw sugar, port wine, dried fruit, toffee, sweet alcohol and raisins. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with notes of raw sugar, port wine, toast and nuts. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Pretty drinkable for the ABV. Has aged well.

slowrunner77 (9421) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 17, 2015
sweet leaning - caramel raisins and toffee on the nose, with a nip of alcohol. Sweet and thick going down. Gotta be in the mood for this type of BW, but it’s nice.
