Bov (9467) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 21, 2007
courtesy of Papsoe - cloudy dark amber-orange colour with a giant creamy and stable beige foam; aroma of bread, raisins and almonds; voluptuous mouthfeel, high sweetness and a robust malt body; a late and very pronounced bitterness, lot of residual sugars, some warming alcohol along with more notes of almonds and caramel - a great brew

estoves2 (98) - SWEDEN - JUL 2, 2007
Pours a dark red body. Fizzy head thats mostly white but is little red, it is short lasting. The body has a very beutiful color and a perfekt opacity. Aroma is of apelsineshell and flowery hops. Small notes of cassis directly after a fast pour. Gets more alcoholic at the end. Flavor is spicy, dried fruits. Small notes of flowery hops, clovelike. Very sweet and plumlike aftertaste, more than is usual in barley wines. It is very hard to find any alcoholic tast in it. Palate is thick and pretty harch. This beer has a very nice balance betwen the plumlike sweetness and the hops, dont understand why it has got that low rating.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2007
Bottled. Floral, herbal and raisin aroma as to be expected from a strong barley wine. Red/brown color, large off-white head, good lace. Very sweet, raisin, bitter, fruity, orange, light floral, light herbal. Quite complex actually. Full, syrupy and warming. Again a underrated Danish beer because it’s well brewed, according to the style, complex yet flavorful.

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - JAN 9, 2008
50 cl bottle at Yngwie´s xmas-tasting. Hazy amber/orange, nice off-white head. Sweet, with caramel malt, alcohol, hops, fruits. Vinous, ending with a hoppy bitterness.

ClubGonzo (3995) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget in Nordstan, Gothenburg. Pours a deep brown-ruby clear body with a small white head. Nose is deep caramel, honey, smooth deep malts, hints of burnt sugar and alcohol. Smooth. Taste is smooth grainy caramel, roasty sugar tones, hints of licorice and toffee. Very nice blend, with a full-bodied and smooth palate. This is a very nice Barley Wine which has clearly benefited from being released 4 years after brewing. And to top it off: it’s ecological; one of the best I’ve had within that genre for sure. A very, very underrated brew in my opinion.
