mikesaum (711) - Newark, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Pours a dark amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is hops with a decent amount of toffee and caramel malts, some tropical fruits, kind of smells like a weak DIPA. Taste its lots of sweet caramel malt and fruity hops, reminds me of bells this one goes to 11, palate is kind of thin, needs more body to it.good but far from great.

AgentAle (1499) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 9, 2016
Aroma is tart, sweet malts, honey, clove and fig. Taste is dark fruits, yeast, candy sugar, and slight earthiness. The pleasant sweet palate of dark fruits and malts compliments the accenting bittering hops. Appearance is a clear dark amber with a medium pearl head that retains fairly well.

RhetoricalAns (837) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 29, 2016
Hazy copper / amber pour. few fingers of beige head, good retention and lacing. Sweet aroma, toffee, bready malt, with a slight herbal hop finish. taste isn’t too sweet, body verges on being cloying but is braced well enough with hops to prevent that. Touch of pepper and a definite alcohol note in the finish. good american barley wine, a touch too much burn at the end.

DraftDodger (1042) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2016
Copenhagen 10/6 2016. A birthday present to myself. 65 cl bottle from Føtex. Yellow striped label with big grey glass of beer on the side (Barley Wine I presume). Bottle is sealed with some kind of wax over the cap. Pours Reddish amber with small white head. Settles as lonely Islands of foam drifting around. Aroma of sugary fruit. Apricot, Fogs and dades. Reminds me of those chokolades you can get soaked in Madeira. Sweet toffee. Noticeable whiff of alcohol. Light carbonation and oily palate. Flavor is heavy sweet and sugary. Followed by and balanced partly by medium bitterness. Aftertaste is bitter sweet and lingering. A bit boozy. Well - as you can USD sugar as a conservator "Old Embalmer" might be quite a relevant name for this beer. A lot of taste and intensity - but a good deal to sweet to fit my taste buds.

Hazy amber, small offwhite froth. Fruity, malty aroma, hints of wood and booze. Flavour has sweet malt, caramel, some dried fruit and ok bitter bite. Boozy finish.

Ungstrup (34248) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2016
Bottled. An amber beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, malt, and caramel, leading to a dry finish.

beerplace (710) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2016
650ml bottle bought at Bainbridge Liquorstore, bottled on July 18, 2012. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a tan head. Aroma is sweet, tropical fruits, citrusy (orange). Taste is sweet, citrusy, slightly boozy. Hoppy bitterness piney, boozy aftertaste. Incredible that hops is still in the taste after 4 years! Very good.

Odysseyalien (71) - New Jersey, USA - APR 26, 2016
Old Embalmer 2012, opened 4/25/2016. Much tastier than I expected it to be. A very nice take on the American Barleywine. Not too sweet at all, mouthfeel was medium. Even after sitting in the bottle for four years, it was still on the hoppy side. I would definitely have this again.
