DuffMan (10142) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 11, 2015
Bottle. Dark amber, hazy, with a low tan head. Ohhhh this is sweet and boozy! But possessing a really nice flavour profile, like tawny port but with woody undertones and just a hint of funk. Bordering on hot, but walks the line as a nice sipper.

Inbreak (5625) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2014
Old rating rerated 15.11.2014, 0,18l bottle (bottle #292/624) @ home:
No head, just some bubbles. Aroma is slightly rich, caramel malts, oak, dark sugar, spices, cognac, licorice, dried dark fruits, hints of butterscotch. Taste is slightly sweet fruity, raisins, dark sugar, grass, honey cake, caramel malts, oak, dates, cognac, butterscotch, cognac. Medium bitterness, slightly sweet oaky mouthfeel, no carbonation. Very well hidden alcohol in the taste. Nice, and this one has aged very good...

Alengrin (5163) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Ultra-strong barley wine matured on cognac barrels, and I suppose the cognac remaining in the wood has helped a lot to boost the alcohol level. Thin off-white head, misty bronze colour. Complex and powerful aroma of honey, liquorice, cognac, wood, vanilla, mint, raisins, pear syrup. Very complex taste, sweet exotic fruits, honey sweetness of the kind I love in a good barley wine, velvety and vinous mouthfeel, touches of port wine and candi syrup, candied fruits, warm alcoholic, brandy-like finish but still elegant, though the initial sweetness sticks a bit.

MrHangover (4410) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle @ tasting, courtesy of deanso. The original 18cl bottle, red waxed. Very cool. Pours a clear amber beer with almost no head on top. Aroma is rather strange, loads of booze and brandy, caramel and oak. Flavor is very sweet, boozy and has some woody influences. Very sweet and vineous, almost like port. Age has smoothened the edges off this beer, but its still mostly an alcohol bomb, unbalanced. Quite ok to drink though, but Im happy it comes in small servings.

vtafro (7444) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2014
(Backlog) Bottle. Brown pour with very low carb, tan bubbles. Fruit and sweet aromas. Flavor is dominated with huge sweetness, fruit, spice, and malt tones; abv of 17% somehow is the backburner.

Flaska 2010 nr 588 p Mikkeller bar Stefansgade. ntligen! Skt den hr ett bra tag nu. Bra pris dessutom. Doften r fantastisk. Kombo av en weer & vind och en bra gammal Hardys. Torkade frukter, tung och komplex. Knns dessutom som den toppar nu. Vrldsklass. Blir inte mycket bttre n s hr. Ingen strande oxidering. Helt flat. Cognacsfatets bidrag r diskret.
