750 ml bottle shared by foppa78- thanks a lot, Mat! Pours a hazy orange color with a small off-white head. Very sweet caramel malts, with some backing smoked malts, earth, dark and tropical fruits, honey, brown sugar, and mild spice. Maybe some vanilla in there, too. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a sweet, gritty mouthfeel. Has aged very well since 2007.

Ughsmash (7361) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 20, 2011
750mL bottle, bottled in June 2007. Poured clear medium garnet with a dense, well-retained beige head.. looked very good in the glass. The aroma picked up sweet caramel, vanilla, and nutty notes with broken-down hops, somewhat sour malts, rye, and peppery alcohol around.. finished warm with aged dark fruits, caramel, vanilla, and warmth. Heavier-bodied with just enough carbonation to keep it moving.. the warmth worked surprisingly well.. this aged gracefully.

Koelschtrinker (12634) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 3, 2011
Süßlicher Malzantrunk auf intensivem Niveau. Hierbei wenig frisch, dafür ziemlich süß, was auch einen Verweis auf den Alkohol darstellt. Würzig, vollmundig, der Alkohol brennt in Teilen, das Bier ist absolut für kalte Winterabende vor dem Kamin geeignet. Deutlich getreidig, das Malz ist alleiniges Aroma und lässt nur ab und an passende Beinoten zu. Meistens ist dies die unterstützende Süße, selten Hopfennoten und verlegen fruchtige Akzente. Stimmig aromatisch, ein einfach runder Barley Wine. Vielen Dank an DerDoppelbock für den gemeinsamen Test! 12/12/12/14/12

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 20, 2011
Bottle via a trade. Pours with a hazed orange body and an off-white head. Aromas are oxidized, orange, cereal, oatmeal, brown sugar and marmalade. Flavors are bitter, oxidized, papery hops, raisins, light coffee, caramel and a touch vinous. Still decent carbonation, but over the hill.

BuckeyeBoy (3597) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Bottle 2007 vintage thanks to JohnGalt1. Pours out a amber/copper topped with a small head. Aroma was caramel, toffee, citrus, pit fruit, and some rich malts. Taste was more of the sweetness, and hops. Along with a nice fruit ending another nice brew from Upstream.
