Bottle: Thanks to ramenen The Hog. Full bodied. complex malt ,
aggressive hops all well balanced definately heavenly.
Solid amber pour, decent off white cap. Nose is surprisingly restrained caramel and light wood. Middle is chewey carmel, currants, wood, alcohil, and subtle floral hops. Finish is bittersweet, warm, and satisfying. Gonna buy one and lay it down. tompete (371) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2018
Pours a clear reddish brown with a fine thick beige head. Aroma is roasted malts and noble hops spicy. Flavour super rich and mouth coating medium roasted grains with a long lasting and strongly bitter finish. k0mpsa (3262) - Tuusula, FINLAND - FEB 17, 2018
Bottle. Dark orange color, white head. Aroma has caramel malty notes, some hops, some honey notes. Nice balanced taste, some malty notes, hops. Actually pretty nice. Vignale (4205) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 28, 2018
Flaska från SB som stått ca ett år, delad med Lilja. Citrusstram bw med fina fudge- och kolasmaker. Men känns inte riktigt pigg, torrhumlingen har mest lämnat beska efter sig och kropp känns aningen platt. Jämfört med bigfoot som åldras väl håller den inte. Men helt ok iaf. chinchill (5472) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2018
Refrigerated 2 oz can with a canning date of March 2017.
Pours with a lightly hazed, reddish copper body and a decent white head. Moderate lacing.
Herbal and fruity hop notes dominate the aroma. The flavor follows, but with substantial caramel malt and low bitterness given the aroma. Moderate bitterness for style. Lasting fruity hop flavor.
Medium+ body and lively carbonation.
Overall: near juicy; easy drinking for style.

Can. Grapefruit citrus hop aroma with notes of caramel malt, floral hops and some dark fruit pours copper colored with a large tan was that has excellent retention and good lacing. Starts with grapefruit and floral hop flavors. Finishes very dry with caramel malt and dark fruit sweetness as well as the slightest hint of booze. Really nice.

355ml can kindly shared by Finn at Agenturet Øl og Vinbar. Crocheted lacing from a patchy off-white head. Hazy orange coloured body with a reddish tint. Inviting smell of apricot and juicy malts. Well blended taste of red orange, apricot and earthy malts with caramel sweetness beneath. Bittersweet long tail. Solid stuff. Nice. (Tromsø 28.10.2017). Bitterbill (2079) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 16, 2017
Poured from the bottle a nice medium gold with a decent head that faded quickly into a fine layer with some lacing.
The smell is of sweet carmel but some hoppiness was also present.
The taste is a good mix of malt and hops with the malt being big and bold(lots of caramel) up front and the hops takes over in the middle and dominates the finish to give it a bitterness that I liked.The alcohol is pretty well hidden but at +9%, I don't get that warming feeling that I'm used to in this style.
Overall, it's not the smoothest barleywine style ale I've tried but it's a good one that I'd buy again. MrTipple (7490) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2017
