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.

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.

ClubGonzo (3984) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2011
2006 Bottle, from trade with Dedollewaitor. Pours a hazy deep nougat brown body with a small, but present film of off-white retention covering the surface. Nose is prunes, caramel, wood and alcohol-fueled cough syrupy licorice, with hints of red berries and...cooked rice? Powerful and nice, anyway. Taste is crisp wooden notes flanked with cough syrupy caramel up front. Then, prunes and alcohol takes the palate comfortably down and settles with some licorice, hints of chocolate and a hoppy, bitter finish. A fine barley wine which I suspect has become better with age. Perhaps it would have reached a higher score if released a few years later...but who wants to wait forever to release their beers, right? ;-)
