corkyrory66 (2516) - BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2018
Barley wine en fût de bourbon, de 12,4 % abv pour 27° plato, et 28 ebu. Malts pils, cara. Houblonnage en premiant. Mon exemplaire avait 14 mois de bouteille. Couleur châtain foncé (49 ebc), aux reflets roux. Mousse beige, à fins flocons, stable à 1 mm. Arômes de bourbon, raisins blancs très mûrs, porto âgé. 1ère bouche très souple, à l'entame fruits mûrs, raisins mûrs, raisins secs. Arrière-bouche déséquilibrée sur le bourbon. 2ème avec une fusion un peu meilleure fruits/bourbon. Arrière-bouche longue, complexe. La longueur alterne de très beaux moments, et des dominations du bourbon trop importantes. Jambes huileuses, longues. Levure d'une belle ligne. Alcool bien, mais il ne réussit pas du tout l'harmonisation. Finale trop bourbon, et même bonbon .. CONCLUSION : pour amateurs de la boisson à Jack the lad, un peu frimeurs … (8/3/7/4/15)

Kita (2331) - Koper, SLOVENIA - FEB 4, 2018
Bottle, 0.33l. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, bourbon, wood and vanilla. Pours hazy dark brown color with thin totally diminishing tan-like head and average sparkling appearance. Taste starts with heavy sweet caramel and toasted malt, follows by dried fruit and vanilla, mouthfeel is warming alcoholic, while finish is mild grassy bitter. Full body, sticky texture and average carbonation in palate. Good for here and there, but not that I’m thrilled with it...

Bottle. Pleasant reddish-amber color, noisy yellow foam. Aroma: sweet, vanilla, bourbon and dried fruits, a bit of halva, plum wine or sherry. Taste: ambrosia, whiskey, raisins and figs, candied fruits, vanilla, warming, excellent!

Nische (2731) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 1, 2018
Bottle kindly shared by Pilsnertest, many thanks! Dark, hazy, copper color with small,light brown head. Heavy caramel, molasses, toffee and some grass. Pretty sweet but it works beautifully, A bit of a boozy kick towards the end, but hides ABV dangerously. Great beer!

Bottle from De Molen Beershop 5-9-16/[email protected] brewery in a special '6 bottle' offer. Lucky to live close to De Molen :-) Wood, vanilla, port, nice alcohol. Warm long aftertaste. Just freakin brilliant stuff.

MashMeister6 (5) - - DEC 27, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2018 Meget kraftig og sødlig smag. Høj alkoholprocent, uden at man fornemmer det i smagen. Det er en øl man nyder!

astronzz (102) - POLAND - DEC 21, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2017 Barwa brunatna, nie klarowna. Delikatnie sie pieni, ale piana opada. Aromat melasa, suszone owoce, przyprawy korzenne. Smak bardzo intensywny: rodzynki, melasa, beczka, sliwkowa slodycz, bardzo wyklejajace i swietnie ulozony. Bardzo duzo ciala, umiarkowane wysycenie. Po ogrzaniu intensywny korzenny posmak wpadajacy lekko w piernik, bardzo delikatna nie przeszkadzajaca wedzonka. Bardzo intensywny Barley Wine, swietna klasyka.

CanCrusher (1189) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - DEC 17, 2017
Bottle 0,33L. Courtesy of Kita. Dark, hazy, copper color with small, fast diminishing, frothy, light brown head. Aroma of dried dark fruits, bourbon, caramel.Taste starts moderate sweet followed by dried dark fruits like figs and plums, even wild strawberries. Finish gets a gentle touch of bitterness and bourbon in aftertaste. Rich, full bodied, almost syrupy.

4.5
DraftScout2 (38) - - DEC 2, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2017 Barwa ciemnobrązowa, piana uboga. W zapachu wanilia, suszone owoce. W smaku wanilia z kokosem, trochę owocowo na początku ale przechodzi z utlenieniem. Alkohol wspaniale ukryty, także lepkość i słodycz zdecydowanie i pozytywnie umiarkowane jak na ten styl. Najlepsze barley wine, jakie piłem.
