daknole (9437) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 14, 2010
LCBS 2010. Orangish pour. All grapefruit peel here with some brown sugar/caramel malt peeking out. Flavor is hoppy up front, sweet malt middle and back to the citrus hops on the finish. Nice stuff.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Served on draft at Argus in Madison, WI at the GTMW pre-party. Pours a slightly hazy ruby color with a medium sized creamy offwhite head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of toasted malts. The taste is toasted malts, toffee, apple, cherries, raisins and herbal hops. Medium bodied.

Rune (8484) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2011
200ml draught. Shiny bright surface to amber-orange coloured body. Dark fruity smell, sweet and bitter. The flavour profile contains a fine blend of dark fruity hops and malty sweetness. Smooth and dry bitter ending with alcohol warmth. More than satisfying to my taste buds (happy drinking with other ratebeerians at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen 26.05.2011).

shrubber85 (7947) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 22, 2010
Tap at 3F brewpub. Sweet peach/apple, brown sugar/toffee aroma with light alcohol. Amber color with small head. Sweet light peach/apple malt, brown sugar flavor with moderately bitter citrus hops finish. Full bodied. Excellent - one of the best and smoothest barley wines I’ve ever had.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
Scopey (7396) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2012
Tap at BrewDog Bar Aberdeen. It pours hazy deep orange, with a thick off-white head. The nose is dark fruit (plum, raisin, fig and cherry), pine, leaf, sour dough bread, honey and alcohol. The taste is sweet raisin, currant, grape, strawberry, plum, cherry, fig, tangerine, resin, pine, spice and alcohol warmth, with a bitter finish. Full body and fine carbonation. Well balanced. An enjoyable fruity barley wine.

deyholla (6973) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 15, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Poured a clear amber with a light tan head that dissipated to the edges and left a slight lace. Aroma had a decent amount of sweet grain with caramel and a hint of backing toffee. Flavor began with sweet grain and caramel with a bit of grassy hop coming out in the finish.

3.4
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
phaleslu (6809) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2010
Draft at the brewpub, split with a buddy. Pours a cloudy amber color with a tiny white head. Aroma is very fruit-forward, with notes of apples, raisins, cherries, sweet caramel malts, and plenty of brandy-like booze; there was something lactic throwing me off in the nose, though. It drops out of the flavor, fortunately, and booze leads, with caramel malts, wood, earthy hops, and sugar. Lingering bitterness and alcohol. Medium-full bodied, with moderate carbonation and a boozy mouthfeel. Big and warming.

Plovmand (6595) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2011
On tap at Mikkeller Bar. It pours hazy amber with a small off white head. The aroma is caramel, fruit, tea, bread and earthy hops. The flavour is berries, sweet caramel, tea, hops and has a light acidic touch.

lusikka (6525) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 29, 2011
Draught @ Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Rated @ 27.5.2011.
Pours a dark, hazy orange colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of sweet caramel and nuts. Flavour of floral hops, bready malts, caramel and toasted nuts. Medium bodied with a thick mouthfeel. English malts/hops are not my favourite.

3.6
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
larsga (6314) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2011
Head is just a thin white ring. Clear amber body. Clean citric resiny aroma with toffee, caramel and mint notes. Dry-sweet intense minty resiny oranges taste with peas and butter notes. Mid-bodied. Mild yet sharpish mouthfeel. Dry-bitter minty floral toffee aftertaste with spicy buttery resin notes. A spicy minty flavour lingers. Lovely, subdued barleywine with good harmony and balance. (0.2l draft at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen.)
