Bottle. Strange orange color. Really hazy. This is a perfect barley wine! With ageing this could be a world class beer. Hops and sweet vegtables in aroma. Flowery sweet taste of hops, cookies and sweet vegtables. Small bitterness in the end. Fat and oily barley wine monster.

cellar (508) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 14, 2009
Dark cloudy reddish amber. Nice creamy head. Strong malty vinious aroma of caramel, dark fruit, clocolate and flowers. Spices on palate. Flavour is powerful, starting sweet with good bitterness in finish for great balance. Alko well hidden, can definitly feel it, and smell and taste it the good way.

deyholla (6486) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 24, 2009
Bottle. Poured a slightly hazy light brown with a slight amber hue. Aroma had notes of cereal, bread, malt, and undertones of vanilla and alcohol. The alcohol is a bit more present with a sweet bread/cereal flavor. Quite thick on the tongue.

Thanks to NoLiberty for opening this via Shaun E. Hill... Appears a hazy brown with a small, off white cap. Spotty bits of lacing are left around the glass. Smell is of heavy sugary, caramel, toffee, vanilla, fruit, and gentle hopping. Taste is of resinous, sticky sugar, raisins, ripe fruit, oak, vanilla, and a touch of molasses. Mouthfeel is sticky, hoppy, sugary, smooth, with mild heat shown from the abv.

Bottle via Alex (thanks!). Poured a medium amberish/brownish color with a small sized off white head. Cloudy. Aromas of woodiness, dark fruits, citrus, caramel, and some floral notes. Tastes of caramel, dark fruits, brown sugary sweet, vanilla, caramel, and some vinous notes. Sweet, but not cloying. Medium to heavier alcohol in the finish.

andersand (529) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 30, 2009
Deep reddish amber with a small but persistent beige head that leaves some nice lazings on my snifter. Aroma is sweet malty with notes of vanilla, wood, light hops and fine liqour. Mouthfeel is quite sticky and medium bodied. Flavour is very complex, woody, fruity and sweet with a lovely bitter caramell finish that lasts forever with lingering fine liqour notes. Warming as a barleywine should be, perfect for a cold swedish autumn night. Now after alittle age it dances perfectly on the line between english and american barleywine with its strong attack, caramell and hop bitterness versus the deep sticky older malt sweetness and the fine complex sherry notes.
