maneliquor (3479) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 14, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2013 Bottle from Mane Liquor for PBS tasting. Cellared for about 2-3 years. Juicy prune and booze on the nose. The booze is still in your face after all this time.Much less heat in the taste. It’s still there but not quite as offensive as on the nose. Loads of prunes, plum, dates and currants. Very sticky date like with brown sugar playing a sweet part. Good stuff and has mellowed out nicely

Bamsen78 (4510) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2013
On tap @ the brewpub. Pours slightly hazy ruby amber with small off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel and booze. Sweet, malty flavour with pronounced notes of caramel, sugar and alcohol (rather warming). Sweet aftertaste. A good barley wine, though you shouldn’t drink it before listening to your favourite lullaby.

solidfunk (5661) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 24, 2013
More like a Belgian strong dark than a barley wine. Dark fruit, raisins and prunes. Cloudy brown pour with no head or lacing. Aroma also has booze but no as much as 12.5 per cent should leave, and caramelized malt. Finishes sweet with a little bitterness. Low carbonation. Some tang in finish. Bottle on sale at volos.

2008 vintage pours deep reddish hues. No head. Loads of dark fruits on the nose. Plums and raisins. Some peach. Tastebuds very sweet. Very fruity. Intense but booze is well balanced. Candied sugar. It's good!

fantti (806) - FINLAND - JAN 15, 2013
Kaatuu lasiin tummanrubiininpunaisena ja todella niukalla vaahdolla, hiivojen kanssa punaruskea. Haju on alkoholin polttama, rusinainen, kuivattua hedelmää, ruohoisuutta, maltaisuutta, hieman suklaata ja persikkaa/aprikoosia tuntuu myös. Maku on aniksinen, kuivatun hedelmäinen, alkoholin polttama, lievän tuhkainen, rusinainen, suklainen ja lakritsinen, ainakin. Suututuntuma on täyteläinen, alkoholinen ja katkerahko. Olut suorastaan hyökkää suuhun. Kokonaisuutena hieman liian alkoholinen, mutta maultaan monipuolinen ja sitä särmää on kyllä kunnolla. Tykkään.

JakobBKK (11) - Bangkok, THAILAND - DEC 16, 2012
Had this beer at Nørrebro Bryghus In Copenhagen. The one I had was a 2008 vintage. It pours dark and hazy. The aromas are sweet and strong, with almost port like notes. The taste is complex... VERY complex! This is more something you would share like a fine wine. It goes extremely well with dessert. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
