bierkoning (10721) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - FEB 25, 2015
Bottle. dark brown color. Maltaroma with hints of dried fruit and butter. Malty sweet, alcoholic flavor with raisin and dried fruit. Warming, pleasant but not abundant with flavors and aromas.

bartlebier (2204) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle pour@BBF ’15, ZA. Dampened cask bourbon and vanilla sugars, sedated macerated fruits all but merge in this laden oldschool Belgian ale gone barley wine. Dry sherry ending, some rotten fruit and old liquorice. A passe-partout composition with an additive sucrose backbone, fuming underneath the hood.

77ships (4545) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 8, 2015
Thanks. Sampled bottled@ BBF 2014. Dark brown, little head. Nose is booze, cheap cacao, light mocha & lots of sugar. Taste is very basic, cheap chocolate, lots of sugar, yeast, mocha, lightly boozy,… Feels a bit thin for what it should be. Zero complexity. This is more sugar than beer. Acceptable I suppose.

Gerbeer (2101) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
330 ml bottle. Pours a clear brown with moderate foamy head. Aromas of sweet malt, chocolate and roasted malts. Flavors are similar with a light touch of Belgian yeast and dark fruit. More of a chocolate-y Belgian Strong.

Christian (11377) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2015
Hazy amber with a small white head. Malty aroma of biscuit and caramel with a fruity note. Sweet malty and sugary flavour with a yeasty note and plenty alcohol

PriorL (2313) - Gent, BELGIUM - JAN 14, 2015
33cl bottle. APPEARANCE: clear dark brown beer, almost no head. Slight GUSHER! NOSE: alcohol, roasted malts, fruits, some cherries even. TASTE: alcohol, fruity, quite some alcohol again, some chocolate. Not that balanced again...

Beeracolyte (30) - Katowice, POLAND - DEC 26, 2014
Butelka 0,33 ml zakupiona w Piwa Regionalne w Katowicach. Po otworzeniu gushing, ale piwo bez infekcji(zresztą pite świeże, 2 miesiące po zakupie). Prezentuje się świetnie, bardzo ładny ciemno-miedziany kolor, piwo nieklarowne. Piana ładnie znaczy szkło ciągle pozostając w formie koronki belgijskiej na brzegach szkła. W aromacie sherry, rodzynki, lekka nuta alkoholowa i coś jakby ziołowa(chmiel?). W smaku przede wszystkim lekki karmel, sherry i taka orzeźwiająca, ziemisto-ziołowa nuta. Finisz bardzo subtelnie alkoholowy. Piwo rzeczywiście zdaje się być połączeniem Barley Wine (i chyba przede wszystkim nim jest) z Quadruplem. Z belgii można wyróżnić czerwone owoce, przypominające likier. Piwo ma bardzo gładką teksturę. chociaż alkohol nie jest do końca przykryty, mimo tych wszystkich smaków pełni tam znaczącą, choć nie pierwszoplanową rolę. Niskie nasycenie, piwo oczywiście słodkie, chociaż tekstura piwa wskazywałaby na co innego. Piwo do polecenia, choć nie jest to topowy barley wine ale podejście do stylu i zmieszaniem go z Quadruplem jest ciekawym pomysłem.

skortila (4662) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2014
Bottle @ Nüetnigenough. Full 33cl sample. The aroma has caramel, raisin, quite some spice. Clear brown reddish coloured beer with a thin, off-white-beige head. The taste is moderate sweet, has dried fruits, quite some spice. Alcohol present but relative well hidden. Belly warming. Nice one.

finol (2282) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2014
Bottle at Pressklubben. A nice varming barley wine with a taste of plums and strawberries. A bit light for the abv but nicely easy drinking

Winter(s) Bierfestival Vichte: Dark brown, tight foam, full bodied. Tones of caramel, chocolate, dried fruits, candy sugar, hazelnut and licorice. Complex!
