DijkBier (486) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - SEP 9, 2017
Bottle from 2012 ("around 2017 at its peak"). Nearly clear dark amber pour, with hardly any head, and some floating particles. Aroma is full, red fruits, raisin, porto. Taste also fruity, sugary, more than medium sweet, light soury. Fullbodied, alcoholic; very low carbo, oily mouthfeel. Of course this is a nice sensation, but actually I expected more richness (just like with the normal Nieuw Ligt); the sugary element also makes it flat.

Eructoblaster (4308) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 30, 2017
On tap at the brewpub. Limpid copper body with a thick, lasting, off-white foamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with barley sugar and woody hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its good malty/hoppy taste carries fruity, woody, and spicy notes. Alcohol is still subtle. Ends with a moderately warming bittersweet finish. Enjoyable.

schavuitje (274) - APELDOORN, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2016
barley wine; lijkt wel wisky vol mouten en omgezette suikers , heel sterk mij te alcholisch

BBHansen (951) - Køge, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2016
Bottle @ DØE Køge. Appearance: pours clear dark amber with ok soapy off-white head and lacing. aroma/taste: barley, brown sugar, caramel, alcohol, light darkfruits and spices. Palette: strong malty aroma, average carbonation, medium to full body, distinct sweetness, somewhat balanced by a medium bitterness, average to long duration and an oily texture.

PeatyPete (1108) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2016
2012 edition. Murky amber coloured beer with direct disappearing head. Aroma of canned fruit and sugar candy. Taste of vanilla, marmalade, sugary and boozy. Only downside was the price.
