PapaVillum (382) - 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.

BoBoChamp (5353) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 19, 2014
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 (1918) - 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.

Bottled. Orangeish pour. Sweet malt caramel yeast mustiness and citrus. Pretty good barleywine.

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 20, 2014
Bottle... Mostly-clear deep orange pour with a small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. The nose is very subtle, but I am finally able to pull a restrained note of caramel and a medley of citrus fruits from the glass. Full-bodied and chewy with tingly carbonation. The flavor presents caramel and toffee flanked by a bittersweet finish and lengthy aftertaste. Bottle courtesy of Plovmand!

Beer4000 (4395) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2014
375 ml bottle @ Cardinal. Unclear orange body with a small and fast disappearing off-white head. Relatively mild in aroma, malt and berries. When the glass is warming up a bit I get some orange marmalade as well. Flavor is very sweet malt, caramel, orange marmalade, zest, some berries, alcohol and moderate bitterness. Full body and average in aftertaste. Too sweet for me, will probably age well.

jkwood04 (3744) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 16, 2014
375ml bottle in a tulip. Pours deep brown with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, and light nuttiness from the malts, a little bit of floral hoppiness, some fruits, and some sweetness. Flavor the same with a nice blend of the malts. Average to smooth texture. A decent barley wine, but could be more complex.

angel77 (768) - oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 24, 2014
Botella de 37.5 cl en el lúpulo. 24-01-2014. En el momento. Color cerezo no muy turbio con numerosos posos y espuma marfil persistente. Cuerpo fuerte con predominio de sensación alcohólica. Aromas a caramelo tostado ligeramente especiado. Sabores algo dulces de caramelo y maltas, con gran sensación de licor que aumenta según va calentando. Regusto final bastante amargo para una barley wine. Bastante buena ya va la segunda botella y cada vez es mas impresionante. Muy buena.

mverity (263) - 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.
