Rune (9236) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2008
Pint on bottle from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. Thin, patch-like head resting on a crystal clear mahogany body. Strong and inviting aroma of dark wheat and tart fruits. Comprehensive hoppy taste with pine, spices and caramel malts leading to a nice ending of hop bitterness. Full bodied and great mouthfeel. (Shared with Arild and Finn Arvid, 02.06.2008)

A nice beer. Bitter hop aroma with grapefruit. Bitter flavor with more sweet malt, citrus hops with pine. Thick and full bodied.

Oakes (13426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 12, 2008
Golden-amber colour. Big toasty hop nose with caramel, peach...complex...grapey and with some alcohol. Really toasty and woody on the palate, with a light fruitiness and a woody hop finish. Clean and flavourful, and yet another wheat wine that sits distinctive from the others.

Bought this at DLD. Pours very heavy with a beautiful thick color. Huge fan of this barley wine’s use of caramel, toffee, hops, and tart to make a unique brew. Very high quality brew, much worth the wait in line for it.

BOLTZ7555 (2960) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Incredibly dense latte head sits atop a thick, not syrupy, fiery orange brew. Sweet but not sickeningly so...this brew displays characteristics of honey, brown sugar, caramel, toffee, and dark fruit. There is a unique hop bitterness that balances this one out...a bit of citrus tartness makes this palatable. Well done...wish it was regularly available. The alcohol doesn’t hit like a ton of bricks either!!!

Brilliant copper color with a slight head. Big fresh cascade hop aroma. Smooth medium body. Nice light caramel sweet flavor with a decently bitter hop/alcohol twang to finish. Very nice Barley Wine Lite here.

MY 1700TH RATING. 66cl bottle. Thanks Christian. Pours clear amber/copper with a creamy white head. Aroma is sweet of sticky hops, alcohol & malts. Warmth from alcohol that tickles your tongue. Sticky palate. Lots of caramel & a lovely hop combination, fruity - mango, pine & peach!. Low carbonation. Very nice!

chriso (7482) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2008
500ml bottle at London tasting, May 2008. Many thanks to Ungstrup for this one. Bright ginger colour. Given the identity of the collaborators, no surprise to find this was a fairly extreme beer. Terrific hop aroma, suffused with pine and resin, but nicely balanced by a rich, fruity malt character. Hops dominate the flavour, with bags of orange peel and a surprising dollop of sweet, slightly sticky, caramel malt. Intensely sharp and bitter mouthfeel with a quite pronounced alcohol afterburn. The hops are more astringent than aromatic and perhaps strays a little too far from assertive towards aggressive for my taste. Big, brash and brassy but a little more finesse would have enhanced my enjoyment. Wouldn’t have spotted any wheat in the mash - perhaps it is just submerged in the enormity of the hop presence.

harrisoni (14996) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2008
Bottle at Chris_o birthday bash 08. Beautiful colour. Copper/amber, thin beige head. Really PNW hop. Little soapy even. Alcohol does warm you at the finish. Decent malts. Not too over powering on the alcohol. Really rather lovely and I had it twice. A double IPA maybe more than a barley wine.

hotstuff (4397) - Indiana, USA - JUN 8, 2008
Bottle courtesy of bdigi66 and thanks for sharing! Small fizzy tan head that mostly diminished with very little lacing, trnasparent, carbonation noted, and a very pretty red hue. The aroma was malt, some wheat, caramel notes, sweet, fruity, citrus hops, grapefruit, and pine. The flavor was caramel, sweet, wheat, citrus hops, grapefruit, the ABV did come through, and finished semi-dry. Tingly mouthfeel with a warming sensation and medium bodied. An excellent tasty beer, easy to drink, balanced, a joy to drink, worthy of a try, and I would partake in this beer again if it comes my way again. Yummy!
