dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Pours clear and copper with a big off white head. Nose is figs, juniper, pine, black pepper, hints of caramel. The taste is sweet, mostly with only a hint of bitter that keeps the beer pleasant. Mouthfeel is crisop and clean, body is somewhat light for a barleywine and the finish is long.

aenima (328) - Askim, SWEDEN - APR 23, 2016
Toffe, wood like aroma. The taste is light caramel with some citrus in the background. Some residual sweetness. This reminds me of a west coast barley with but not with the usual hop flavour.

NordicV (1749) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2016
Gyllengul öl med ett lättare vitt skum. Doft av malt, karamell, viss nötighet och alkoholsötma. I smaken tillkommer bröd, muscovadosocker och fruktighet.

Pedro_Pinho (84) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 13, 2016
Celebration 2015 @ 9,9 ABV. Clear amber liquid with thin head. Aroma of caramel and malt. Nice barley wine taste at start, but this gets dominated by the alcohol. It has aging potential, but right now is a bit unbalanced.

Bamsen78 (4769) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2015
Bottle, as Nils Oscar Celebration 2015, 9.9% to celebrate the end of 2015 in Jönköping, Sweden :-) Pours hazy amber with small off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and fruit, with notes of caramel and touches of yeast and hops. Sweetish flavour of fruit and caramel malt, with bitter notes of hops and metal. Bitter-sweet aftertaste. Okay but rather potent.

Ktwse (3408) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2015
Pours clear amber with nearly flat white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, bread. Taste is sweet, burnt butter and sugar. Body is light to medium, smooth, with soft carbonation. British style barley wine, kind of boring.

Vignale (2985) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 22, 2015
Flaska från SB. Väldigt fin stiltypisk doft, klassisk UK BW. Torkad frukt, russin, honung, vanilj, fudge, söt tobak, syltade apelsinskal. Smaken lyfter inte riktigt lika väl, smakerna finns där men lite faddare. Men riktigt gott och en de bäst BW som gjorts i Sverige.

Hermod (5452) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JAN 30, 2015
33cl bottle @ ccc. Mahogany color, thin white head. Toffee, marzipan, sweet aroma. flavor has dried fruits, sweetness, toffee. Too sweet for me. Maybe gets better with some aging?

jookos (4594) - FINLAND - JAN 30, 2015
Bottle@ccc. Brown amber toffee colour. Nutty toffee malts, some leather, molasses. Full bodied, quite well bittered, doesnt cloy even with a substantial sweetness. Some herbs, malts. Pretty nice. Rich sweet maltyness, but with a good deal of bitters for balance. A really toffee butterscotchy thing,
