HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, - FEB 6, 2012
600ml bottle from the LCBO. Deep, deep hazy firebrick red with virtually no head, even after a vigorous pour. Barleywine!!! Love it! Malt, booze, resin/floral hops - big and ballsy. Taste- even better: add fruit and a ton of nuttiness, building alcohol, but never overpowering. Mmmmmm. Average body, slick, astringent, decently carbonated, quite fruity and dry in the finish. Damned easy to drink - wish I had bought a few more.

DuffMan (6164) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Is there a story behind this name? Because for some reason it makes me chuckle. This is downright cloudy, medium brown with a golden crown that retains nicely. Aroma is extremely brothy, like Bovril, with sweet brown sugary undertones. Brothy malty chewy palate, Triscuits, bread, sponge toffee. Showing its age, but I still liked it,

Staffan47 (809) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2013
Flaska 2008. Väldigt stiltypisk engelsk barleywine. Mörk kopparfärgad-rödbrun.Tung maltbas. Mycket torkade frukter. Låg beska. Grötiga jästpartiklar mot slutet

motelpogo (6130) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 2, 2013
on tap at the brewpub. rich shade of ruby amber with a lingering thin head; loads of strawberry jam in the aroma; pleasant fllavours of toffee apple, dried fruits and a slightly tinny bitterness. very drinkable for the strength

BeerSkull (1082) - SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2013
(Bottle). The smell and taste is sweet with aromas of raisins, brown sugar, figs and caramel malt. The taste is a little vinous with hints of warming alcohol. An impressive beer with well balanced flavors!

bhensonb (10355) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle from Bu11zeye. Pours hazy dark amber with no head. Aroma of dark sugar and dark plummy fruit. Med + body. Heat barely discernible. Flavor is brown sugar, dark fruit, perhaps earthy hop. Finishes pleasantly, but much less than dry.

marcus (6018) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours dark brown with no head, just a few bubbles and a citrusy fruit aroma. There is a sweet treacle flavor, very syrupy with noticeable alcohol.

maneliquor (2787) - 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 (2413) - 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 (3009) - 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.
