alteregoo (1235) - POLAND - MAR 25, 2017
Piana obfita, całkiem trwała, ładnie zdobi szkło. Barwa rubinowa, delikatnie opalizująca. W aromacie karmel, toffi, wanilia, jasne winogrona, brzoskwinie z puszki, suszone owoce... W smaku dość słodkie, przyjemnie oleiste, nisko wysycone, są rodzynki, syrop klonowy, akacja, kandyzowane owoce. Goryczka niska do średniej, migdałowo ziołowa, w posmaku wanilia i dębina oraz wyraźne rozgrzewanie od alkoholu.
Całkiem fajne, bardziej na słodką, syropową Barley Wine. Leżakowanie w dębowych beczkach nie wpłynęło jakoś korzystnie na ułożenie alkoholu, dodało zaś nieco mdłych nutek waniliowo dębowo klonowych, co sprawiło, że w tym przypadku wolę czystą wersję.

FatPhil (15362) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 16, 2016
500 ml bottle - thank you, Mart
Super sweet aroma (not sticky etc., though -anna), with malty caramel and raisins. Rich malty cakey taste, fruitcake in particular. The finish is pretty dry and has raisin stems in. Full palate. While this tastes very serious, with the sweetness, it’s surely not 13%. The crap in the bottom of the bottle was just as good (maybe even better -anna). Nice.

Light haze on this amber beer, good pale tan head. Palate is airy, mildly dry and has decent fine carbonation. Soft rich malts, semi sweet. Tangy caramel and toffee. Light tangy fruits with a little orange peel. Interesting barleywine. Not as complex as some, but it is rich. It’s also very light considering it’s abv.

Silvan7 (1205) - Samarate, ITALY - OCT 11, 2016
Bottle @ home. Ramato carico, quasi marrone bellissimi riflessi rubino, schiuma beige fine poco persistente. Aroma caratteristico, malto, sembra di entrare in un birrificio durante la cotta, thè nero, caramello , datteri, liquirizia e pasta della pizza. butterscotch in quantità. Dolce amabile, fruttato, datteri e uva passa, maltata, leggera tostatura.amaro debole. rotonda, calda, per nulla carbonata, Non del tutto equilibrata (manca totalmente la luppolatura) ma grande armonia

wlajwl (6193) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 3, 2016
Aroma is caramel, oak and slightly sweet dark fruit. The flavor is dark fruit/plum, malts, caramel and a mix of mild/medium sweetness and warming alcohol in the finish.

caesar (6940) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2016
Bottle thx to Martinus, brewyear 2015 BB March 2019, large sample. Almost clear redbrown color, medium frothy head. Aroma of caramle and toffee, bit raisin, spicy, oak wood. Bit sweetness in taste, slight dry oak wood, bit spicy, slight alcohol. Base beer is good, but quite straightforward and could use a bit more complexity (on top of the superb DvdK balance), but the oak wood just gives one extra layer. I would love to see that extra sweet tooth to it.
