SamTheBarrel (544) - Vallentuna, - NOV 19, 2013
330ml bottle of 2011 years vintage. Pours opaque dark mahogany, with a medium sized creamy tan head with good retention. Aroma of plums, raisins, apricots and muscovado. Taste of plums, raisins, apricots, muscovado, maple syrup and butterscotch. Heavy sweetness with a light bitterness. Medium body, creamy texture and flat carbonation. An overall well tasting relatively low alcohol barley wine, personally however I do prefer the style stronger.

ogivlado (6167) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 17, 2013
Bottled 330ml. -from trade with Nisse666, thanks Thomas. Dark amber coloured, huge beige head, caramel and light spices in the nose. Toasted malt, quite sweet, caramel and overripe fruits with hint of chocolate and spices. Light bitterness with light notes of hops in the finish.

Pyrmir (3831) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2013
330 ml bottle, vintage 2011. Dark mahogany brown with quickly dissapating orange/tan head. Aroma of plums, raisins, apricots and dark sugar. Taste of plums, raisins, apricots, dark sugar, syrup and toffee. Sweet with nice fruity notes and light bitterness. I get the feeling that this would be better with a little more alcohol

Marko (4175) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 13, 2013
Nisse’s? Anyway, great that I get to try this. Poured a murky brownish amber body with an enormous beige head. Heavy maltiness in the aroma, vague chocolate, vague lemon. Sweet malty taste, vague caramel and chocolate, pear juice? Light bitterness, lemony notes. Fine, balanced barleywine, far from cloying, slightly too earthy for its own good but by all means a good beer.

Keg at the bow bar. Pours hazy amber, sweet sickly toffee taste. Bit of honey there.
