Benzai (8395) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 22, 2012
Sampled from bottle. Hazy reddish color, small beige head. Smell malts, sweetness, a bit of sugar. Taste malts, some sweetness, slightly alcohol, some fruits like pear and something else I just can’t figure out what it is. Medium carbo, medium body.

Dark amber color; medium sized creamy head. Very mild malt and caramel aroma, maybe with a hint of vegetables. Medium body strength (good, but different from what expected from a Barley Wine, more like an English Strong Ale); the mouthfeel is soft and quite round; there is caramel flavor, malt, brown sugar, very moderate sweetness, a touch of vegetables, and a bitterness that is just a bit stronger than the average English beer. Simplistic.

Melker (206) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2012 2011 vintage. Same as last year. Beautiful deep copper, slightly hazy. Big foamy bone white head. Aroma is brown sugar, malt, caramel, port wine. Much better than last year. Taste is sweet, malty, vinious but there’s too much alcohol in the taste and there’s also something in there that reminds me about tobacco which i don’t like.

nazzty (921) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2012
Very sweet and mellow. Clear flavors of Christmas, quite spicy beer with a relatively high alcoholic strength. Best suited to rather severe food.

Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2012
Bottle. Dark ruby brown with a small tan ring. Aroma of toffe, loads of toffee. Some plums, some nuttiness, quite a bit of hops in this one. A little alcohol. A little vinous, some bubblegum esteriness. Pretty damn solid. Loads of burnt sugar and caramel on the tongue, with a solid hop bite in the finish. Well balanced for a barley wine, and since it’s a lighter take on the style compared to the 10+% monsters, it’s actually quite drinkable. Medium bodied, not too heavy. All in all I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Crisp (lol wat), clean but perhaps it lacks a bit in the wow-department.

Foffern (1248) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2012
Bottle shared with (and courtesy of) ClubGonzo. Pours a deep and cloudy amber colour with a small beige head that’s a bit like cappuccino head. The aroma consists of dried fruits, hops, chocolate, and alcohol esters. The taste is marked by surprisingly lot of sweet hops, fruit, oak and leather, and appears to be well balanced, medium bitter, smooth, and slightly dry in the end. This is a good barley wine with a fine aroma and taste.

Skinnyviking (7069) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 6, 2012
Draught. Creamy off-white lasting head. Hazy brown body. Sweet fruity caramel vanilla aroma and flavor with low carbonation and a long aftertaste.

ClubGonzo (4056) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 2, 2012
Bottle (and a very good looking one, as well). Pours a clear nut brown body with a small white head. Nose is light wooden licorice tones with hints of bubblegum and fruity esters. OK. Taste is licorice, caramel, burnt sugar and hints of wood. Filling mouthfeel, medium carbonation. All in all I’d say this is a rather nice barley wine, and probably the best I’ve had from the S:t Eriks series yet.

Light hazy reddish amber with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, heavy caramel and moderate hoppy - fruity. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and rather bitter finish. 280212
