PetetheMeat (621) - Hove, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2006
Beige, lasting head. Amber ale. Very rich malty sweet aroma. More malty sweetness in the flavour. Notes of roasted malt. Sherry too? Sugarsticky palate. Hides the ABV very well. Soft carbonation. Overall, special but very nice, if you like sweet ale... ;.)

(on bottle) Amber volor, beige head. Ones gotta drink this cold, ´cause it´s real sweet. Luckily it has just about the carbonation to lavel that out, but only just about. Smal catch of bitterhops in finish, makes it an OK beer. Cheap axx barley wine for dure.

Beautiful clear dark amber color with small head. This is a great beer, fine balanced sweetness, fruity and malty.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 7, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2008 I am rerating this as my first bottle was bad (way too sweet and cloying). Reddish-brown coloured barley wine that is sweet and malty with a somewhat bitter finish. Not one of John’s finest IMHO.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - APR 4, 2006
Pours an ultra fast dying tan head on a dark amber body. Sweet aroma dominated by rye and caramel. Sweet flavor as well, candied caramelly, reminds me of a Danish Hvidtøl. Notes of rye again. No sign of the high ABV at all and actually quite nice. My favorite Barley Hvidtøl :-)
