2010 bottle. Clear, brown-orange, some light bubbles. Nose of smoke, caramel, chery, grape, honey, peat? Big flavorful burst in the mpouth, orange and honey, spice. Then smoke and gets qa bit raunchy. Too flat. Smoke doesn’t work well with the somewhat Sauternes-like sweet dessery character. A strange brew.

Pours hazy orange with low frizzy white head. Arona of apricot, peach, mango, passion fruit - like a fruit explosion! Some caramel and toffee in the background perhaps. Taste is incredibly fruit sweet with a booze backbone, only a bit of bitterness in the finish. Creamy and full with practically no carbonation.

Bottle, pours copper brown, aroma is sweet and lots of barleries and it was not too smooth but overall enjoyable Garlic_of_Doom (645) - SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2013
Bottle, 2012 vintage.
Aroma hits hard with peach and banana, sweet malt, some saison/brett/ slight sourness as well.
Taste is very sweet with ripe tropical fruits of all kinds, mandarine is most prominent. Canned fruit. Honey, hops and slight alcohol finishes this one of.
Mouth feeling is smooth and sticky, low carbonation.
Strange one...not a typical barley wine at all but very nice nonetheless.

2010 bottle. The taste is very similar to a fruity vinegarette, but without the acidity. I would say the mouthfeel is a little syrupy, but not so thick. For some reason I get a little bit of a kick in the back of my throat, no idea where that comes from. Hardly any carbonation at all, poured agressively, yet no head whatsoever. This is a great beer, and am happy to drink it to celeberate my buddy Alan’s birthday. Cheers! angelkostvo (1233) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 19, 2013
