Habanero (4668) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2014
Bottled. Pours amber with a small, laicing beige head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, dried fruit, vanilla, wood and bourbon notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and with alcohol notes. Medium to full bodied, oily to syrupy texture and soft carb. An excellent barley.

Vignale (3824) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2014
Flaska från beernavigator drucken på ölföreningen. Å ena sidan lite väl stark och stickig, men å andra sidan när den värmst upp finns förutom bourbon och vanlijsmakerna fina fruktiga smaker av päron, vita söta druvor, honung en liten jästig kryddighet. Riktigt trevlig.

50cl bottle. Pours dark amber with very small white head. Aroma of vailla, coconuts and sweet. Medium carbonation with nice and round mouthfeel. Oak, Vanilla and some fruity notes in taste. Warm finish due to alcohol. Very nice and enjoyable Barley.

Bottle @ 1st BBF, De Molen.
Pours muddy yellow with a very nice, creamy, white head. Aroma is sweet malty, good vanilla notes, caramel, bourbon and a little "sweaty". Light carbonation, nice creamy and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, vinious, malty, apples, banana, mustard notes and light vanilla. Very fresh and drinkable.

sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle sample @ 19de Internationale BierHappening, Zottegem. Thanks Glenn. Orangée/cuivrée trouble, col est blanc et fin. Arôme est effectivement plein de Bourbon,bouquet garde un côté généreux belge dans un style belge forte avec un malté conférant une pointe biscuité. Palais est réchauffant, sucrée léger roux, profile restant très belge dans son approche plus que un barley wine comme on les imagine avec le Bourbon qui enveloppe tout le palais, ici le boisé reste subtile. L’alcool est bien présent et réchauffe le palais et garde ce fini malté caramel sur un beau pétillant. Boisé est subtile, avec un profile fruité pêche fermenté qui indique la base de Melchior. Pointe houblonnée vient en fin de bouche et contribue subtilement à l’ajout très discret d’une amertume fleuri. Pas mauvaise, mais là on dérive un peu de l’original Melchior qui perd ici quasi toute la présence de graine de moutarde.

Bottle kindly shared by OleR. Malty sweet, very rich oaky character. Moe vanilla and wood than whiskey. A wood aging showcase.
