Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2003
Best before July 1987! Sweet honeyish mead aroma. Strong flavour with smoked notes. The finish has a coffeeish dryness.

jsquire (3402) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2003
Urine yellow out of the little 180ml bottle with little head and a sweet banana smell. Heavy caremel sweetness with some subtle hop notes in there. Tastey beer but it sure didn't seem like a barley wine to me.

rauchbier (3596) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2002
Bottled. Yes, Sam Smiths make a barley wine but it is quite hard to find and only comes in small nip bottles. Amber coloured with almost no head and a moderate condition. Big aromas of peardrops and butterscotch along with an obviously alcoholic kick, syrupy malt and more alcohol in the mouth and a long lingering alcoholicly warming finish.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 24, 2001
Bronze colour; whiskeyish nose; some light lowland malt flavour; touch of acidity as well; light chewiness of malt and a hard body. Seems a little confused.
