mverity (294) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle poured into a large snifter. Deep hazy amber brown with about an inch and a half of cream-tan head. Head held well and formed a nice thin layer on top and a hick collar. Phenomenal lacing. Aroma is really toasty/bready, some good sweet caramel, and earthy/woody hop. Taste is somehow inverted from the aroma, British hops, caramel and then the toast at the end; but the aftertaste turns back into the caramel sweetness. Good body: medium to almost full. Medium-low carbonation.

Tmoney99 (11468) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Draft. Poured a dark orange brown color with a moderate frothy tan head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex roasted malt, complex dark fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy dark fruit sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet and small alcohol burn finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.

bluejacket74 (1466) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2013
375 ml bottle. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours an orange/brown color with about an inch light tan head that sticks around a little while. Theres also a decent amount of lacing. The brew smells like caramel malt, brown sugar, candied/dried fruit, and some light citrusy and grassy hops. The taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like caramel malt, brown sugar, candied fruit, grapes, toffee, and a bit of grassy hops. Mouthfeel/body is medium, its a little syrupy with moderate carbonation. I think this is a good brew, I liked it. Its pricey at $10.99 a bottle, but still worth a try at that price.

phaleslu (7107) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Draft in a sampler at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a cloudy, dull orange color with a small off-white head that laces the glass. Aroma of caramel malts, honey, tea leaves, bubblegum, brown sugar, and dates. Flavor is the same, with more hop and booze presence. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, boozy mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Not my kind of barley wine.

olsvammel (3803) - rebro, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2013
Sample at rebro l & Whisky 2013. Fruity and sweet smell and taste. Some brandy and dried fruits. This is nice as it is but will probably age well.

Draft @ Borefts as "Ours is bigger then ..." Aroma is wine, port, red fruit, malt, sweet and sourish notes. Flavour is sweet at first, then tart red fruits takes over with caramel, fruts and more. Nice.

Bottled 375ml@VWPBF Hazy amber color, small white head, lace. Herbal, "marihuana" aroma. Medium-bodied. Cannabis hoppyness, kind of spiceyness, sweetish maltyness. Easier than ABV.
