33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet somewhere in Oslo some time back. Pours dark amber to brown with a beige head. Malty and caramamelly aroma with some hoppy notes, dried fruits, herbs and hints of citrus, spices and alcohol. Sweet, very sweet, but still somehow quite drinkable, and it finishes with a nice bitterness. Rather flavourful and quite a tasty sipper. themightyjag (563) - - JUL 30, 2015
330ml bottle from Brewdog shop.
Small cream coloured head, good lacing, body is slightly murky dark brown. Big fruity nose, raisins, treacle, alcohol, pine. Flavour is fruit cake, burnt sugar, booze, surprisingly bitter finish. Great mouthfeel, oily, chewy, light carbonation. Rich, fruity, spicy, this is a big beer. fredfa (234) - belo horizonte, BRAZIL - JUL 28, 2015
Barley wine mais leve (apesar dos 10% teor de alcool). É uma boa cerveja, mas com um péssimo custo benefício. Brandman (2948) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 8, 2015
Dark brown body, light brown head. Bit dirty looking, clears a lot when warms. Aroma has sweet cookie dough, raisins and chocolate. When warms, adds some alcohol and yeasty fruits. Flavour is very harsh, much alcohol, some coffee and bit tar. GlasgowTAD (1778) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 24, 2015
Pours a burgundy shade of brown with a fair khaki head which soon recedes to a lacing. Aroma is heaped with sweet malts, caramel with some mild orange notes. Taste is herbal, caramel, slight citrus with a heavy bitterness. Full bodied with an oily mouthfeel. Herbal medicine notes are prevalent.

Draft. Deep maroon. Bright orange peel aroma, with additions of toasted biscuits. Flavor is old oranges blended with caramel and toffee. A bit more toastiness than I’m used to in a barleywine -- almost a brown ale level of nuttiness. Interesting take on the style. Abijen (2571) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - JUN 3, 2015
Koper helder bier met een gebroken witte schuim kraag. Ruikt zoet, overrijp fruit. Smaakt vanille, kruidig, zoet en overrijp fruit. Lekker dik en plakkerig. Bosbouw (2919) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - JUN 3, 2015
