Miksu (4948) - Jyväskylä, - JAN 3, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2013 0.375 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Reddish amber color. Sweet aroma with raisins, toffee, citrusy hops and some hot alcohol. Bittersweet caramelly and citrusy flavor with raisins and tropical fruits (apricot?). Full rounded body. Not bad, but there seems to be lots of everything, too much hot alcohol and caramel.

"A big (though not think or sticky) sweet and bitter alcohol bomb. Reminiscent a little of the very very good Walk on Water collaboration that was 14% with a low gravity. Lots of citrus (mainly orange peel) and vanilla sweetness. Guilty pleasure, great sipper."

On tap at Archive Beer Boutique Armekeggon 2014. Bigger and better. Big and boozy this beer packs a punch.

On tap at The Archive for Armakeggon. Huge flavours in this bad boy, smooth for such a strong drink, very, very tasty. A great example of a barley wine.

Lowe1983 (1349) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2014
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 (3629) - 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)

Chudwick (2156) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - AUG 4, 2014
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 (5481) - 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 (572) - 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 (696) - Riga, 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!

Interesanta miezu viins. Pirmais parsteigums - vajs aromats. Nedaudz peec kvada. Garsa - salda bet ne paraak ka barleyiem un looti patikama. Auglaina, bet viegla
