Palme (4181) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 23, 2011
0.5l bottle @ Henrik, Bergen. Have been looking forward to tasting this for quite a time now. Pours a near black body with a red hue with a thin - almost non-excising head. Aroma: smoked malts, dark chocolate, brandy and liqueur. Full bodied. Hints of coffee, dark fruits, cocoa and warming alcohol with a smoky finish. Totally impressed over how nice this was! Is it perhaps any way we can have two or even three suntrurn-days a year?

LoFi (1710) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2011
2009 bottle. Very dark ruby, perhaps a bit hazy, with a creamy, porous tan head. Aroma: dried fruits, port, smoke, malty and sweet, with some candy and sweet licorice. Taste: lots of dried fruits: raisins, figs, dates; malty, smoky, peaty, salami, port, and hints of chocolate liqueur. Medium bitter with warming alcohol. Full-bodied, almost creamy or moussy mouthfeel. Nice and different barley wine.

500ml bottle shared by Doug, thanks man
Appearance: Dark mahogany with a nice beige head and some light lacing
Aroma: Light smokiness, dark fruits and sweet malts
Taste: Roasted malts, rye, chocolate and some bourbon
Very nice. Not much smokiness, more of a barley wine than smoked beer.

douglas88 (8457) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 30, 2010
500 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a medium beige head. A sweet fruity barley wine nose, some hops and herbal notes. The flavor is very nice; rich strong fruitiness, caramel, dust, light smoke. This is a barley wine or a traditional ale not a smoked. Very smooth, slightly hot.

HonusWagner (2127) - Florida, USA - DEC 25, 2010
A thick, rich, warming barley wine with great smokiness and roasted grains characteristics in the nose. Chocolate, modest sweetness, very delicate smoke flavors. Moderate finishing bitterness. A very awesome beer.

gyllenbock (7995) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2010
Bottle. Dark brown with a small, creamy head. Sweet aroma and taste of smoke, licorice, malt, dark bread, nuts and caramel. A different beer, difficult to define. Thick mouth feel and not that much carbonation. Interesting, would like to try this again.

baggio (334) - norrtälje, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2010
Bottle@Home Apperance: Ruby red with a wee, beige, head. Aroma: Caramel, Smoke, Berries, Brown sugar. Taste: Smoked meat, Dark Caramel, Rye bread, Hint of berries and leather. Palate: Smoke is present but dominating this brew that has a solid malt backbone. Feels balanced. Low carbonation. This went down really easily with some smooked cheese. A really pleasant smoked barleywine where the smoke doesn’t take up to much space.
