rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, - FEB 2, 2013
Bottled. Crystal clear copper color with low head. Rich sweet malty nose, with hints of toffee and dried fruits. Semi-mature aromas here. Buttery yeast character and sweet maltiness with caramel on medium levels. Full bodied with lots of potential yet to come with maturation.

Pedro_Pinho (45) - 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 (4690) - 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 (3170) - 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 (2852) - 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 (5151) - 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 (4233) - 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,

laiti (7789) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 16, 2014
33 cl bottle @ Pikkulintu, BBE 05/2019. Very sweet aroma with ripe fruits and strong malty tones typical to doppelbocks. Flavour is rather malty with caramel, toffee, some alcohol, ripe fruits and distant woody tones. Something between american strong, barley wine and doppelbock. Sweet, but alcohol brings balance; a nice slow sipper.
