drjay44 (2633) - Salida, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2013
375 ml. green bottle. Pours a thick, well retained, light beige head, with extensive lacing, over a slightly hazy, particle laden reddish dark amber (SRM 15) body......nose is treacle, dark fruits, light pine, citrus.....taste is sweet treacle, pine, resin, citrus including both lemon and grapefruit,, hints of dark fruits including plum, raisin, finishing with a pine citrus peel bitterness....mouth feel medium, sticky, slightly astringent, alcohol heat present, carbonation low. This is a very sweet, highly alcoholic beer. While it meets the style of a Barley Wine, the heavy sweetness is too dominant. BJCP 8/2/14/4/7

Ughsmash (7135) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Bottled. Poured medium reddish-amber with a short eggshell head. The aroma picked up sweet caramel and fruity notes with accents of fresh grass and herbs.. warm and a touch too sugary, but it held the boozage in check. The flavor found tart fruits and bright peppery notes upfront, with bready malts supporting.. spicy with peppery booze on the fairly hot finish. Medium-plus bodied and aggressive once it hit the mouth.. OK feel and flow.. solid overall, but just OK for the style.

Dogbrick (8113) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 23, 2013
This brew pours a hazy reddish-amber color with a medium foamy off-white head that dissipates slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of roasted malt, caramel and ripe fruit. Full-bodied with flavors of sweet caramel, grainy malt and a touch of piney hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Above average overall.

Lowenbrau (1937) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 11, 2013
375ml bottle @Cimmeria. Malty, caramel and some spicy aromas. Pours dark amber, almost clear, with off-white head, vanishing, some lacing. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is malty, sweet, caramel, with alcohol noticed, but not overwhelming. Well balanced, not very usual in barleywines. Nice and enjoyable.
