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.

Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of dark fruits with some caramel malts and some alcohol. Flavor is strong of the plums, caramel malts, and alcohol.

erickok (3491) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - AUG 7, 2014
Light amber to golden, stable small head. Dark malts yet not roasted or anything, more thick. Sweet but not as concentrated as expected at this abv. Given the score on RateBeer, slightly disappointing. Good brew though. (375ml bottle from Bière Révolution shared with Guus and Tim)

Taster at ei8htball - nose is a mix between cleaning product and mash. Sweet but not over the top sweet. Pine. Smooth. Boozy. A sipper even for a taster.

b3shine (5319) - Indiana, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball. Looks good for the style; a cloudy pale burnt orange with very light caramel head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells bittersweet and malty with notes of caramel, toffee, and hops. Fuller-bodied on the nose. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

zenkis (567) - Ogre, LATVIA - JUL 17, 2014
On nose it came a bit sour and vinegardy but flavor was oposite - sweet, caramely with light touch of hopping. Color was dark brown. Some honey like hints in flavor.

Vells (652) - LATVIA - JUL 16, 2014
Very pleasant and enjoyable brew. Had two samples. One of them started with surprisingly almost acidic nose. Like sour ale. Thou taste definitely wasnt sour. Other one had very light hints of sourness in nose, but same taste as first. This one differs from typical barley wine with character of dried fruits and honey. Strong malt background, caramel, toffee, bit candy, decent hops for balance. Pleasant sweetness with bittersweet finish, feels quite oily. Huge brew!

PapaVillum (424) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2014
37,5 cl, flaske, 12,5 % ABV, købt i Barley Wine i CPH City, 24. juni 2014. Mørk ravfarvet og ufiltreret dansk Barley Wine med lille fin skumkrone på 1/2-1/1 cm, offwhite-farvet. Orange nuancer i glasset. I næsen er der noter af frugt, honning. Duften er vinøs. Smagsmæssigt en version af den mere humlede slags Barley Wine. Dejlig fyldig og rund smag, omend frisk humlet. Og alligevel med en lille spydspids sødme, som klæder den rigtig godt. Kuldioxid indholdet i brygget er blødt afrundet, og alligevel tilpas til stede, at man ikke lulles ind i alt for meget fløjl og draperinger. Meget elegant balance mellem sødme og bitterhed. Lang god humlet eftersmag, som hænger ved og giver associationer henad en god IPA, dIPA eller Triple IPA. Fantastisk nydelse sammen med en Café Creme cerut. Bør prøves! En sådan øl, man bare ønsker mere af.

38cl, new exclusive Danish brew Anno 2012, from De Hopduvel Gent, very complex brew, malty/alcoholic/sweet and slightly spicy/fruity, yet not too heavy, balanced, hazy, rocky head, very good brew, yet expensive!

jookos (2072) - FINLAND - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle. Deep amber colour. Suprising fresh citrus, gooseberry, hoppy nose with bready malts, some huskyness. Full soft body, really nice texture. Some sweetness, but nice bitters. Light plummy malts. Soft. Nice. This isn’t really a traditional barley wine, more of a hoppy thing with BW-y malts.
