rjwhite41 (55) - osceola, Iowa, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Bottled 7-18-12. 22 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber with a thick fluffy off white head. Lighter in color than most barley wines. Smells malty, grassy, and floral. Tastes like crystal malts, grassy, and boozy. Body is moderate for style and the boozy finish burns for far too long. Not sweet enough for my tastes and not very complicated. There are better barley wines out there.

hotstuff (4522) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Rated on 7-17-2015 (Bottle) The appearance is a small smooth beige head that mostly diminished, hazy amber body, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is malt, hops, earthy, and fruity. The flavor is hops, toffee, caramel malt, spicy, and boozy. The mouthfeel is smooth with some light carbonation. This beer is light-medium bodied. This is a good sipping beer that is easy to drink for the style and it is worth trying.

Hoppier than I like. Typical Widmer, making "please everyone" basic safe beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Marduk (4502) - Reval, ESTONIA - NOV 12, 2015
Tap @Olutexpo 2015. Deep amber color. Small size, yellow head, stays. Sweet, caramel, fruity, vinous, raisins in aroma. Raisins, caramel, toffee, sweet in taste. Long lasting raisins in aftertaste. I can feel the alcohol, but can’t actually taste it. And that’s the way I like it. Very well balanced. Excellent brew. More!

660ml bottle (OlutExpo2015)
Nice perfumey aroma. Light palate for its strength. Sweet malty body, but almost thinish. Does work as a sipper, but it’s so light you want to drink it more like a weaker beer. Caramelly and toffee finish.
