ClubGonzo (5648) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 23, 2011
Bottle @ Henrik, Bergen. Near-black, deep brown body, tiny beige head. Nose is toffee, booze, caramel, roasted malts and hints of dates and figs. Nice. Taste is more roasty, with burnt toast and caramelized sugars coming forth early. Then, some more smokey, whiskey-like tones appears towards the finish. Some figs and dates also, along the way in the aftertaste. A bit harsh on the palate sometimes but its okay as this is a winter warmer more than anything else. Overall, Id say this is much more in the neighborhood of an English strong ale or an old ale than the barley wine it supposedly is, but hey - I guess its a the lower end of the ABV spectrum, where genres overlap easier. Regardless, this is a fine beer.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 19, 2011
2009 Bottle. Dark coppery red pour with a very short white head that doesnt last long. Aroma is rich, malty and fruity with notes of rum, raisins, vanilla, port, chocolate, molasses and cherries. Flavour just about mirrors the aroma although the sweetness is tempered by the hop bitterness, which is surprisingly prominent. Light, slick mouthfeel with low carbonation and a lengthy bitter finish. A real winter warmer of a barley wine, and although the booze is quite noticeable, its really quite sessionable.

hawthorne00 (3814) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 14, 2011
2009 bottle. Dark reddish brown with a beige head that fades to a coat then retreats to the rim. Rich fruity aroma of prunes, raisins and toffee. Moderately syrupy. The rich fruit and toffee sweetness is there, but theres also some fairly gentle roasted bitterness and firm biscuit. Hop bitterness emerges at the finish and lingers longer with each sip. Alcohol doesnt exactly stick out, but it feels considerably stronger than 7.2%. Filling, warming and very nicely balanced.

Davros (3054) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 30, 2011
Pours dark brown with a small quickly fading head. Nose shows loads of rich syrupy malt, plenty of caramel, golden syrup and treacle in there. Similar rich malty flavours and oxidised character. A little alcohol mixes with a mild but sharp bitterness to counter the sweetness. Nice creamy carbonation and slick body. Good for sipping, very rich and sweet though.

Gary (1972) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2011
(330ml ), As you swrill the goblet tiny hurricanes of booze covered raisin..wealthy malts.....smoky covered toffee bombard the air. A lifeless dark glass of evil ruby sits...... rivers of toffee rich malts,,raisins soaked in roastiness all in cloying streams.

Aroma-blackcurent Appearance-dark red nearly black, with a light coffee head Taste-dark chocolate, licorice with some sweetness, alcohol Overall- not too sure, the alcohol is very evident, its a bit like a port in that you sort of want to sip it. Might be better with food.
