Hazy red-amber color, with medium sized creamy head. Different aroma, moderately pungent, strange hop mix (light), not strong. The caramel and malt flavor is decent, but not rich and sweet as typical Barley Wines; it has a toffee note too, and strong bitterness, with good resins and some fruity side, and moderate alcohol perception. Medium long final.
The malt profile is between a Barley Wine and an English Strong Ale, well hopped obviously; and professionally brewed, clean; but not exciting.

radiomgb (2580) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2016
Bottle from Blue Monk in Buffalo, New York. Ruby in colour with a thin off-white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of caramel, heavy hops, spice and alcohol. The flavour is moderately sweet, hoppy, fruity, caramel. Finishes long, warming and sweet.

rafaelagp (22) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - JAN 1, 2016
Bottle. Head is light beige, thin and quick dissipating and leaves a bit of lacing. Body is heavy, of hazy chestnut red color and medium carbonation. The aroma initially smells of fresh citrus hops and develops into malt sweetness, caramel and dries fruit. Taste follows aroma, with the alcohol well hidden and a short warming finish. A bit too sweet imo, but still pretty good.

drpimento (2769) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 6, 2015
An extremely tasty BW. Aroma is on the mild side, but do pick up caramel and orange Julius. Flavor is like nose & traditional BW, very heavy bittersweet, nice complementary dose of carbonic tang and hops. Big beer. Good for slow drinkin.

Acid303 (610) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - OCT 16, 2015
37.5cl bottle, served in Duvel glass. Pours dark amber with medium beige head. Beautiful lacing. Aroma is caramel, ripe fruits, citrus and hints of white grape. Taste is pretty much the same, very well balanced. It worth to mention that the hop flavour is there, but not the bitterness. A lot of sweetness on the palate, so brown sugar-like, with moderate alcohol heat. Medium / full body, perfect carbonation. Well, thats something I only drink, maybe, once a year...but I can tell it is probably the best Barley Wine Ive had so far.

neongolden (1010) - Linkping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2015
(375ml bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linkping, Oct 8 2015) Pours a hazy dark orange-red and a big lingering white head leaving lace. Aroma has a sweet caramel toffee core, orange juice, citrus pith, wet grass and light pine from the hops. On the palate it is very sweet, with orange juice concentrate, brown sugar, sweet red berries, light hop bitterness, and hints of grain on an otherwise clean finish. Light alcohol heat in the aftertaste. The body is medium full and oily with medium carbonation. The hops are present but there isnt a ton of bitterness, more fruit that complements the sweet malts. Moderately complex, but a little too intensely sugary and cloying in anything but small portions.

puren (447) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - OCT 13, 2015
Prezentacja:
ciemny bursztyn - karmel, klarowne, piana ecru, obfita, drobna, opada do cienkiej warstwy, ładna firanka;
Aromat:
słodki, winny, drożdżowy, iryski, rodzynki, śliwki, brzoskwinie, ale inaczej niż w belgach - bez dzikości i przyprawowości;
Odczucie:
ciało zawiesiste, po części średnie, w większości wysokie, nasycenie bardzo niskie, gładkie, choć troszeczkę musuje na języku, finisz owocowy i winny;
Smak:
bardzo słodki, cukier, lekki szlachetny alkohol, owoce, całość jakby nieprzesadnie słodka nalewka albo lekkie wino owocowe;
Oglnie:
moje pierwsze BW bardzo mi smakuje, jest niezwykle pijalne, alkohol jedynie muska w nos i język.
