Bottle at home. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of malts and caramel, dark fruits, alcohol. Taste is sweet, malts, caramel, cane sugar, alcohol. Sweet caramel and alcohol finish. More a too sweet quad or Belgian strong ale than barley wine.

Nice thick Belgian ale. Sticky, sweet, brown malts, white chocolate, apple pie. Quite some smoke too, in aroma and taste. Odd beer but I do like it. Mixed Belgian style with a crafty twist. I have mind all that sweetness. (33cl bottle from QV.ID)

Zoete, maar weinig weiige lucht . in de smaak wel veel zoet, en veel prik. Barleywine is toch echt niet mijn ding.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 hazy amber color with beige head. Aroma has caramel and booze soaked raisins. Also some overripe red apples. Taste starts with caramel, butterscotch but not really sweet. The taste is balanced at first and gets quite bitter towards the finish. Body is very smooth with light carbonation. The label says "belgian barleywine" and indeed, it has some belgian yeast characteristics but also a lot of hop bitterness, like an american barleywine. Overall it’s a really interesting take on the style.

adasko (1348) - Poznan, POLAND - OCT 19, 2015
Awesome heavy, dense aroma with malty, winy, typical belgian quadrupel notes with tiny touch of alcohol. Almost clear, dark amber color beer, with tiny beige head to it. In taste I would say it’s a very much typical abbey belgian strong ale. Malty with this typical wooden, barrel notes and barely noticeable bitterness in the end. Alcohol is perfectly covered but it really warms you up from the inside. It’s a bit over carbonated, but has a great body. It’s so soft and silky. It really is a good beer.

The Oracle, barley wine. Looks..red-ish brown with a golden hue, sml head on pour. Smells..caramel malts, toffee, candy, some boozy fruit. Tastes..boozy stonefruit and fortified wine, sweet candy and sugar, a little coffee liqueur and sweet nuttiness.
