thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - FEB 21, 2013
This draft brew from a beer bar poured a medium sized head of foamy tan colored bubbles that were and left behind a no visible carbonation slightly hazy dark ruby red brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was malty. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of Irish red malt and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

Strykzone (4933) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2014
Sampled at esbls. Mid brown and hazy. No head. A big fruity malt aroma is aggressive. A really thin feel. An odd flavor. Dark complex fruit with bourbon. Big malts. I’m not a fan.

Sampled this Horizontally with the BFM Version of this beer 2011 Bottle Crystal clear (no muddiness like BFM) ruby tinted brown coloured body with a strong rust and copper glow and a very thin tan head - showing more carbonation than the flat BFM. Aroma of totally different notes than BFM - cigars, scotch, whiskey, oak, vanilla pods, tobacco and a lot of earth really come out here - THIS is a barley wine. Medium to Full-bodied; Deep, strong alcohol flavour at first with a pungent earthy, tobacco and spicey malt flavour showing a great platform for pit fruits, peat and a little chocolate flavour. Aftertaste shows a great complexity with the typical barley wine flavours - oak, vanilla, scotch, pit fruits, earth and peat all come out here and play around the palate nicely. Overall, a much more representative barley wine compared to BFM - but a totally different flavour profile. Great to sample, especially horizontally, but these are totally different beers, and this one is a barley wine, if that’s what you want and/or expected! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Arrowine in Arlington, Virginia on 24-November-2012 for US$8.99 sampled at home in Washington on 22-June-2013. 2011 Bottle//Purchased November 2012//Sampled June 2013

unclemattie (4189) - Georgia, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Foil wrapped, 22oz bottle. Vintage 2011. Toasted brown color, thin ring. Aroma of barley tea made of loads of toasted barley. Sweet bourbon, toffee, raisin, hints of chocolate, honey & caramel. It just smells like fucking candy. Tastes of toffee, toasted grains, oak, almond cookies, brown sugar, dark fruits. More of an English-style BarleyWine. Very soft, extrememly smooth. There is NO alcohol in this bottle at all. Perfectly balanced. (3558)

drfabulous (3999) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - DEC 24, 2013
2011 bottle from Brusin Ales. Murky brown pour. Some caramel and fruit. But unfortunately, this bottle has note aged well in a short time for such high ABV. Wet cardboard throughout. Otherwise, it could be a nice barleywine.

jkwood04 (3950) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 9, 2014
22oz bottle in a tasting glass. Pours deep amber with a beige head. Aroma of strong caramel and toffee malts, a little oak and vanilla, and some light bitterness. Flavor the same. Average to smooth texture. A pretty cool barley wine.

jaghana (3917) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - FEB 5, 2013
Bottle 33cl from Map thanks ! A cloudy dark amber beer without head and carbonation. Nose is rich on cherry, oak and lactic touch, oude bruin like profile. Aroma is very fruity on apricot, apples and cherry, mostly dry and tart, long bitter aftertaste with dark malt notes, caramel, vinous, very oily, typical oude bruin body, leather notes. Not bad just too yeast like in the finish, less clean than the Belgian versions but quite interesting.
