Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2012
Very dark brown colour, mahogany. Small off-white head. Rich in aroma, theres wood and overripe fruits. Taste is also powerful, some sweetness and quite bitter towards the end. I much prefer this to most barley wines Ive tasted due to the subdued sweetness. (Bottle)

Dark malty smell with a bite of chocolate and ashy dryness. Comprehensive taste character that contains ripe and dried fruits supplied by caramel malts, well blended. Mid-sweet, malty ending.

pgang 2009. Flaske 0,33l spandert av og delt med Rune p seanse hjemme hos ham 12 Jan 12. Mrkebrun. Hyt, litt farget skum som fester seg til glasset. Innholdsrik fruktig aroma. Sherrypreg. Myk munnflelse. Smaken er sammensatt: Ntter & frukt. St bitter ettersmak. Rett og slett et godt dessert-/kosel.

Contrasting sharp & sweet cherry & berry battle on the tongue with some yeast & an ever so slight hint of roast. Medium body, quite soft with a delicate spritz & a lingering spicy tanginess.

tombyars (1621) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - SEP 28, 2011
First tasted this barley wine at the winter ale festival held in Glasgow in February 1997. Cask and gravity dispense. Ruby black with an open buff head which rapidly disappeared leaving no lacing. Strong, intense aroma of damsons and berry fruit. Rich powerful mouthfeel. Dark malt complex gives a full range of flavours with fruit to the fore. Hedgerow berries, plums, black grapes, overipe cherries and a hint of dark chocolate. Very slight prickle of hops in the aftertaste which fades fast as sweetness returns with an alcoholic warmth in the slightly dry vineous oak finish. Excellent example of an English barley wine at its very best. Highly recommended.
