75cl Bottle, bottled June 2013. Slightly hazy amber colour, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, candied fruits, raisins, vanilla, wood, very malty, tea leaves, hop. Flavour is sweet, malty, raisins, quite fruity, wood, vanilla, tea, firm bitterness underneath. Full bodied. I usually find De Molen barley wines way too sweet, but this is perfectly balanced imho. Great stuff. Erzengel (9364) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAY 10, 2017
Bottle shared with Koelschtrinker, Beerhunter111 & Zlotta. Extreme intense viscous beginning. Sticky sweetish, round and fresh. Moderate grainy, intense sweetish in body, grainy, sticky, sweet sugary. Intense alcoholic-sugary, sticky, too much for me. And too less interesting aroma here.

Sampled from 0.75 l bottle, bottled in June 2013. Slightly hazy, reddish amber with a beige layer. Sweetish-malty, slightly fruity, and a bit spicy aroma of caramel, honey, vanilla and some red fruits. Very sweet, malty and a bit fruity taste of caramel, honey, vanilla and some red fruits, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, slightly spicy and a bit warming-alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice!

Barley Wines from De Molen are about my favourite thing in the world, so how does this attack up? Very dense great, amazing red brown body. Super concentrated woody and deep dark fruit aromas, with thick cherry and apricot jam, chocolate, cranberries, oak... Amazing. Powerful sweet body, creamy and lucious, perfect soft carbonation. Wow, this is so good... (75cl bottle as marriage gift from John, many many many thanks!) Countbeer (6591) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2015
