Ibrew2or3 (8206) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Sampled at Toronado 2009 Barleywine Festival. Pours hazy copper to gold with off white head. The aroma has a mild mix of pine hops and dark fruitiness to go along with milder notes of malts and alcohol chemical heat. The taste is bold and nearly harsh with pine hop resiny bitterness moving into modest levels of dark fruity esters. By midway it maintains mostly pine hop bitterness only tempered by mild malt sweetness. Nice American style barleywine.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 9, 2009
Bottle marked 09/08/09 thanks to cavie. Pours with a golden body and a fading white head. Aroma is hoppy with honey and caramel. Taste is hoppy with pine, orange and caramel. Definitely an American style barleywine that reminds me a bit of Old Guardian. Light bubbles and syrupy.

Plovmand (7878) - Helsinge, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2011

after4ever (7608) - Brier, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2009
Crystal clear bright caramel medium amber. Loose, creamy tan ring of foam. Big sweaty nose. Creamy medium body. Bitter, resiny wood shows up right off the bat. Tons of gym socks. Not much character other than the diacetyl and whatnot here.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 25, 2009
2007 bottle. Poured near-clear, healthy medium orange with a short-ish cap of beige head. The aroma picked up a huge dose of reddish fruits with a sweet overall impression.. some herbal character and touches of earth.. warm, sweet, and inviting. The flavor was also centered around dark fruit, but picked up brown sugar, aged caramel, and a touch of molasses.. finished with more bitterness in the form of pine and earth.. tasty stuff. Medium-plus bodied and well-balanced on the palate.. hoppy and warm at the end. Solid brew all-around.

Bottle 650 ml 2008 Vintage
Aroma rose berry aroma with raspberry tartness, sweet ending. Refreshing nose.7+
Appearance very nice appearance. Thick hazed amber with large bright white top. Good lace.
Flavor and Palate : Medium bodied, central berry sweets, mineral earthy side and finish. Light dryness from hop , slight tartness with it. Neat , refreshing and quiet drinkable for its strength. Easy going. Finished 650 ml by myself and was looking for more…

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 2, 2009
Pours a transparent dark copper amber with a frothy, spotty-lacing off-white head. Rich aroma of sweet caramely malt and lots of fresh resiny grapefruity hops with a touch of light fruity esters. Starts with good fullness and chewy caramel sweetness well-balanced with a juicy citrus hop presence and a touch of earthy bitterness and a hint of soapiness toward the finish. Starts out well, but gets kinda flabby, overly bitter and unbalanced in the end.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2010
A Mes rate. Bottle at Chris O’s Kook Fest tasting.
Fairly clean amber with a very good off white head. Lots of fruity malt and plenty of caramel too. Good balancing citric hops and a decent amount of bitterness. Sweetist finish that dries nicely as it goes. Reasonably straight forward but generally a really good, suprisingly mellow barley wine that is not the usual over the top crazy fest that I have come to expect from most American takes on this style. Enjoyed it.
