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.

tomekboniek (513) - Warsaw, POLAND - SEP 29, 2016
Butelka. Barwa ciemno miedziana, mętna. Piana średniej wysokości bardzo trwała. Aromat intensywny cytrusy, owoce. Smak mocno cytrusowy, kandyzowane owoce. Finisz lekko kwaskawy. Konsystencja oleista, likierowa, bardzo pijalne oraz bardzo treściwe. Wysycenie niskie, goryczka średnia, grejpfrutowo-owocowo-żywiczna, niezalegająca. Alkohol delikatnie grzeje w podniebienie.

ogniskowicz (708) - POLAND - SEP 26, 2016
Aromat trochę nieułożony, alkoholowy (ale dość świeży egzemplarz otwarłem), natomiast i tak znalazło się tu miejsce dla sporej ilości owoców (czereśnie, jeżyny, cytrusy), odrobiny żywicy i słodkich ciateczek. W smaku gęste, cukrowe, rodzynkowe, ale klawo skontrowane ziołową goryczką i lekkim cytrusem w posmaku. Barley Wine - klasa !

alteregoo (928) - POLAND - SEP 20, 2016
Piana dość obfita, gruba, szybko opada do mięsistej chmurki ładnie krążkując. Barwa miedziana, mętna. Aromat to kombinacja amerykańskich chmieli (cytrusy, tropiki, żywica) i konkretnej podstawy słodowej (karmel, ciasto drożdżowe, keks). W smaku dość słodkie, likierowe, syropowe, ale jednocześnie delikatnie kwaskowe, cytrusowe, z wyraźnym posmakiem iglaków i czerwonych owoców (czereśnia, malina, dojrzała wiśnia) oraz herbaty owocowej i kandyzowanych owoców w afterteasie. Goryczka średnia, żywiczno grejpfrutowa, krótka. Alkohol lekko grzeje, ładnie wkomponowany. Wysycenie niskie, gęste, pełne, wyklejające w odbiorze, czyli tak jak w BW powinno być!
Faktura tego piwa jednoznacznie pozwala odróżnić, że nie jest to IIPA - tak właśnie powinny wyglądać polskie "barlejłajny"...

lello4ever (677) - ITALY - FEB 23, 2016
Colore ambrato intenso quasi ramato, la schiuma è di colore beige molto fine con tante bollicine. Aroma di buon livello con sia caramello che sentori di luppolo ed erbe. Al palato dolcissima, caramello e frutta secca, corpo pieno e rotondo con consistenza oleosa. Carbonazione media. Alcol in grande evidenza. Ottimo barley wine.
