2013 bottle, at Engine House 9. Deep amber bronze, creamy tan head. Huge nose full of robust hop, roasted malt, and honey...lots of honey. After I took the first few sips, I got carried away for 30 minutes reading the Wikipedia page on Caramelization and Melanoidins and all the chemistry behind the process because I was a bit high and it’s really interesting stuff. Then I looked up and had a Reuben in front of me and a 6-flight of E9 beers and thought to myself..."Man I love the PNW, what a time to be alive.". Overall, pretty damn good barleywine. klm1 (1501) - Bled/SF, - MAR 4, 2017
Bottle, release 2015 from Kl&wine merchants Redwood city@: pours copper/amber slightly haze with off-white tan head. Aroma: intense hop profile, malts, with notes of caramel, toasted toffee, burnt sugar...flavor is very similar: malt backbone with notes of honey, caramel, toasted toffee, burnt sugar, supported with hop notes which takes on citruses, with some floral, spicy notes. Body is full, texture soft, carbonation is moderate.

Fat på Omnipollos Hatt. Brunmurken vätska med litet gräddbeiget skum som ligger kvar som ett lock och hänger kvar lite på kanterna. Söt, fruktig doft med massor av torkad frukt, kolaremmar, övermoget äpple, kandisocker, sirap. Dämpad och oerhört len kropp. Låg kolsyra. Massor av kandisocker, torkad frukt, kola och lite lätta ekfatstoner i smaken. Lite väl lätt kanske, och lite rå i kanterna. Större i doft än i smak. En del värmande alkohol, men 11,5% märks definitivt inte av. gyllenbock (9096) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2017
On tap at Omnipollos Hatt. A bit hazy amber with a small head. Sweet with malt, dried fruit, caramel, some rye bread and light hay. The body was full and the finish with warming alcohol.

@Hatten 17-2-18 : söt och potent med tydlig ton av russin och råg. Trevlig att smutta på men kanske lite tjatig i längden Nickls (2523) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - FEB 7, 2017
Bottle. Murky dark copper brown with a fluffy light tan head. Pine, lacquer, dark sweet fruits. and slight booze in the aroma. Flavor is bitter, pine, turpentine, toffee, and touch of dark fruit in a bitter solvent finish. Medium to thicker sticky body. Old school American Barleywine goodness.

12 oz bottle, into a tulip. Pours dark murky ruddy brown with thick tan head which fades slowly into long lacing. Hefty amount of suspended sediment gathers at the bottom of the glass, should have expected that and poured more carefully. Aroma is rich, creamy, nutty, toasted toffee; sweet, loads of caramel, vanilla, molasses too. Taste is likewise - crisp initial malty sweetness is cut quickly by big dry hops. Caramel and toffee here too, some figs and plums as well. Very easy drinking for the style and abv. Barleywines aren’t my favorite, but this is great and always worth revisiting at holiday time.
