gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2008
Bottle, at BA Throwdown #2. Pours a reddish bronze, creamy head and lacing. Caramel nose, wheat and straw, hoppy, colorful notes of dark fruit. Crisp flavors, mostly caramel, vanilla, some interesting rye elements, cocoa, and biscuit. Smooth body, tasty, big American influence here.

Dfonorow (1867) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2016
Bottle from 2008. Pour is deep brown/red/amber with a very small white head. Aroma and flavor of booze, caramel, dark fruit, and floral hops. Finish is boozy with a weird combo of flowers and sour grain. Seems like it has fallen off a bit from a few years ago.

MPA (899) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - JAN 18, 2016
Bottle. Amber/brown with beige head. Aroma of dates, raisins and molasses. Sweet flavour with lots of malty notes along with a good amount of bitterness. Very nice.

biirusaikou (1928) - - JAN 13, 2016
Draught at Mikkeller Tokyo. Esters of pear and apricot, rich green hops, honey, cake, fairly boozy on the finish with some lingering bitterness. I quite like the style in general but this one feels a little bit heavy and too hopped up for me maybe.

pushkinwow (2434) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2016
Bottle from 2008 DLD. Dark amber with a creamy tan head. Musty and old barleywine aroma with a fairly sweet caramel malt presence, some prunes and raisin, mild carbonation and full body, smooth and well hidden booze, probably should have opened this up about 2 years ago as its fallen off on the finish but still overall a good beer.

SvanteL (120) - SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2015
Mörkt rödbrun, disig. I doften finns en läcker blandning av torkad frukt och lite citrus. I smaken finns en röd fruktighet och citrus med en fin sötma. En fint balanserad och mycket smakrik barley wine. De Klomp 2015-10-10

ciocanelu (599) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 20, 2015
Hazy dark orange color with beige head. Aroma has sweet malts, caramel and also some earthy hops. Taste follows with the same notes. Slightly sweet at first but gets bitter on the aftertaste. Body is quite heavy with smooth carbonation. Not bad but not really my favorite style of beer.

Holmen1 (4125) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 12, 2015
Fra flaske på Mi2, Cardinal des-15: rødlig kobber med kkort skum. Oksydert, vinøs aroma og smak med Tokayer, marmelade, fiken og råtnende bær. Mye alkohol i inntrykket. Det virket som de fleste andre (unntatt Andreas) likte den bedre enn jeg. Middels bitterhet.

Holmen2 (2463) - NORWAY - DEC 7, 2015
Shared bottle at Mi2 at Cardinal 07.12.15. Slightly hazy golden. Small off-white head. Wonderful aroma of Sevilla marmalade, Tokayer, dried fruits, orange zest and alcohol. Similar taste, with lots of dried fruits and medium bitterness lingering on. Dry mouthfeel.

Shared bottle at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours hazy amber with no head. Aroma of caramel, raisins, some alcohol, citrus. Tastes quite sweet, with butter finish. Thin bodied, alcoholic warmth. Too bitter, unbalanced.

gunnar (7125) - Sandnes, NORWAY - DEC 7, 2015
Shared bottle at Cardinal. Pours almost clear deep golden with a big creamy off-white head. Aroma is typical BW, with sugars and dried fruits. Taste is moderate/heavy sweet malty, with some weak dry peppery hop finish.
