nuplastikk (4342) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Bottle shared at DC tasting. Unfiltered orange-brown. Foamy soapy off-white head. Sweet honey fruit aroma. The "dry" hops the Belgians employ here work really well, balancing the malty richness. I really enjoyed this.

snzcujo (282) - RUSSIA - DEC 12, 2012
Tasted from the bottle, on 12/12/2012. Pours of just incredibly beautiful dark-dark copper with an immense foamy head. Aroma is almost intense, citrusy and slightly sour in the end. Taste is amazing, lovely and complex, just overloaded with hops. Recommended+ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MIBRomeo (2555) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Off orange pour with a tall thick small bubbled white head w/ good lacing. Dry grassy musty hop aroma hot alcohol after that lacks the malty backbone aroma that I would expect from a barleywine. Well coated lightly creamy palate. Easy to drink mix of musty earthy woody hops and a light caramel malt backbone. Subtle for a big style but easy to drink and pretty good.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2012
Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours amber with a slight haze and a creamy off-white head. Caramellish nose with some citrusy hops and a spicy edge. Solid body, very caramellish, somewhat estery, powerful and sweet but never cloying. Even though the hops aren’t crisp they manage to balance the sweetness throughout. Enjoyable. 031212
