mcberko (11117) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 26, 2014
2006 vintage. 250mL bottle, courtesy of fiulijn (thanks Alex), pours a deep dark yeasty mahogany with a tiny beige head. Aroma is bizarre, with smoky tobacco, caramel malt, and dirty yeast – bleh. Flavour is really bizarre, with milk chocolate and smoky tobacco upfront. Quite yeasty and dirty – probably past its prime, but still decent. Bizarre stuff.

AdamChandler (4049) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Not sure what year. Small 8-10 ounce bottle. Very burnt oaky appearance. Sticky off-white head. I’m getting a ton of tobacco / cheap cigar on the nose. burnt candied sugar and some smoke. Very roasty, sorry but ugh..it’s like drinking cigarette butts. Oh. yeah interesting beer but I simply can’t finish it.

StefanSD (2246) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - SEP 12, 2012
25cl bottle from Jacob. Thanks. Pours a murky brown color with a small off-white head that slowly fades to a fine film. The aroma sherry, almonds and some dark fruits. The flavor, like the nose, is loaded with sherry, add to this a good dose of raisins and some light molasses. The palate is full and silky smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes medium in duration and dry. Overall: A very fine Barleywine, much enjoyed.
